There’s so much great stuff to eat and do in North Texas. But what’s the best? Just as the year ends, here’s a moment for us — and you — to look back at the best of the best for 2023. Local Profile voted internally on its favorites and, over the past year, let you do the same. While readers’ choice isn’t for every category, hundreds of y’all replied, letting us know what your favorites were. And for that, we thank you.

At Local Profile, we have a rule: If it’s a Kenny’s restaurant, it’s good. And Kenny’s Burger Joint is very, very good — the best. The burgers are cooked over hickory and served up in deliciousness, like the mushroom brie burger, the smokehouse barbecue burger and the juicy Lucy. Plus, the guac and the queso are both on point. Ditto for the shakes and the desserts.
