Margarita Wins IndyEater’s Munch Madness Challenge

Indianapolis Restaurant Joins University of Kansas in Winner’s Circle! The Margarita was voted the winner of IndyEater’s “Munch Madness” contest.

16 local restaurants entered the contest and competed in a head-to-head competition on the Indianapolis Eater Instagram Page.

This year’s theme was “The must-try restaurants that never let you down”. According to IndianapolisEater, the 16 restaurants were selected based on recommendations from followers.

Round one featured nearly impossible choices: downtown Latin hot spot Livery versus Fletcher Place brunch king Milktooth; Cajun stalwart Yats vs SoBro Twenty Tap pub; and Fountain Square’s Metal Burger joins Kuma’s battling SoBro’s Fat Dan’s.

Some faceoffs were so close that only a vote or two separated the winner from the runner-up, like in the Dugout vs. Keystone Sports Review battle and the Baby’s vs. Lovehandle fight.

The Elite Eight included Kuma’s, Bazbeaux, Milktooth, Keystone Sports Review, Yats, Chatham Tap, La Margarita, Baby’s.

La Margarita, Yats, Milktooth and Kuma’s made the Final Four.

Last two standing: La Margarita vs. Milktooth with La Margarita winning a vote of 65% to 35%.

The Margarita will receive this year’s “Golden Fork”. The Mexican restaurant has been part of Fountain Square since 1984.

Last year, Munch Madness’ theme was “Bang for your buck, Best value in Indy.” The Historic Steer-In on the east side of Indy was crowned champion.
