The results of this question in the survey don’t surprise me at all. I think the order should be switched, with the 3rd place coming in first, but I understand that most people are going to go for the least expensive choice.
This question had the smallest number of responses – only 19 restaurants in the list. Most of those got one vote. It also had one of the lowest number of people voting – 566. I can’t help but wonder if this is because the food isn’t popular in general, or if many folks just don’t recognize the vast difference between restaurants as you get away from the most basic dishes of the cuisine.
Out of 566 votes cast:
