While many people are waiting for the basketball brackets to be released, we are ready to unveil the second Munch Madness bracket with 64 of the best restaurants in and around Tuscaloosa. 

We took listener nominations. We polled the staff at Townsquare Media. We've sampled the food throughout the past year. We've taken all of this input and created a bracket full of the areas best restaurants. Now we want to unveil it to you.

Before we do that, let us remind you of the how the competition will work. Beginning Tuesday (March 17) we will begin the voting process. The restaurants with the most votes will progress through the bracket until we've finally determined a winner on the same day as the basketball championship game (April 7).

Voting will be done by region - Crimson, White, Houndstooth, Yellowhammer - and listeners can vote as often as they like while the polls are open each day. Here's the schedule of voting:

Week 1

3/17: Crimson Region, Round 1
