Patch's Readers Choice contest winners are determined by results of the weekly poll and reviews left on a business' Patch listing. Why do the ratings matter more when determining the winner? The poll goes away after a few days, but the positive reviews and ratings stay forever with your favorite restaurant and really help them out.
Hilltop 1892 will receive a Patch certificate of achievement in the coming weeks.
Thanks to all who voted and added comments not only to the Readers Choice story but to the listings for each restaurant. Watch for our next contest starting on Monday.
