Carson Valley Times Reader’s Choice — Best Food In Carson Valley

Searching for Carson Valley’s Signature Food Dishes

Every self-respecting publication puts together a version of a Readers’ Choice contest.

We decided to jump into the fray, but as with everything we do, we wanted to put our own twist on it.

When we are on the road, we often look up local’s choice lists to find good places to eat. We’re also often disappointed because we don’t know what menu items the locals go so crazy for (It turns out, the bowl of fruit is generally tastes the same there as it does here).

What we have created is a virtual throwdown among Valley restaurants. We are in search of the signature dishes Carson Valley has to offer, focusing on one specific category of food every month.
