We started with 64 businesses in mid-March, but in the end there could be only one champion of customer service in Largo: Ted's Luncheonette.
The restaurant cooked up the most votes in our tournament, with strong support from Patch readers and customers.
Here's what some of our readers had to say in the final rounds of the competition:
Awesome service and GREAT food! The atmosphere is beautiful more establishments should be this clean and friendly. — Ginny Scala
Ted's is the place to eat, great friendly service! My Mom and I enjoy a VERY affordable meal everytime we go out to eat. The portions are outstanding and they will bend over backwards to acomadate your needs! Love, Love, Love It !!!!!!!!!! — Spring Berry
Ted's is GREAT and AFFORDABLE!!!! The food is delicious, the restaurant is very clean and the staff is smiling...what more could you ask for! The atmosphere is SO family friendly and comfortable! They make you feel right at home at Ted's! Our family definitely recommends!!!! — Debra Huguley
Ted's has until next week to prepare its acceptance speech, when we'll be paying the owners a visit, asking about what makes their service special and presenting them with their 2012 Readers' Choice certificate.
Thank you to all of the readers and local businesses who participated in our tournament, and stay tuned for more Readers' Choice competitions in the future.
