Martin's Makes the List for Eater's 2016 Standbys

As one year closes and another one begins, many folks find themselves ready to get rid of the past year and open their eyes wide for the future. And while we agree that making plans, setting goals, and getting excited about what's to come is a real smart thing to do, we also think it's kinda fun to look back on the year and reflect.

Apparently we're not alone! Every December when the year nearing the close, Eater reaches out to some of the city's most influential foodie friends, food bloggers, and restaurant critics to reflect upon where they spent the most time eating this past year.

And four of them mentioned little ol' us, Martin's Bar-B-Que! 

We loved that food blogger Beth Sachan of Eat. Drink. Smile. called Martin's out for being a great place for families to go.

Martin’s BBQ is our favorite family meal spot (for both sit down and takeout)

And we were plum delighted to read that our friend Chris Chaimberlain from the Scene claimed to have eaten at Martin's more than anywhere else in the city this year!

The harmonic convergence of Pat Martin opening his pitmaster’s playground at the new Martin’s downtown combined with the opening of the Predators season has meant that I’ve probably eaten there more often than anywhere else this year.
