Munch Madness: Last Day to Vote in the Round of 32!

You've heard of March Madness. This is Munch Madness—Patch's attempt to find the best restaurant in St. Charles County.

With all votes accounted for, Patch's first-ever St. Charles County Munch Madness tournament kicks into high-gear with the opening of the second round today!

Munch Madness runs along the same lines as the much-hyped college basketball tournament, except it uses St. Charles County restaurants instead of college basketball squads. 

That's right, 64 restaurants all vying for top status in the county. All matchups were found by creating a randomized list via random.org.

How do they advance, you ask? It all depends on your vote—on the site, our Facebook page and Twitter feed! To learn more about the tournament .

Here are some basic rules and regulations:

  • Restaurants will advance based on the number of votes they get on each Patch's website and their Facebook and Twitter accounts. The restaurant with the most votes at the end of the matchup will advance.
  • Readers can vote by leaving a comment on the posted article for a given matchup. Twitter followers can vote by tagging a Patch's Twitter handle and adding their vote. And Facebook fans can vote by leaving a comment on the Facebook status that coordinates with the given matchup. 
  • One vote per user, Twitter follower and Facebook fan. If you follow us on all three platforms like you should, that's three votes!
  • Voting periods will be as long as the round in which you are voting.

Here are today's matchups:

Second Round Munch Madness (Wentzville/Lake Saint Louis)

 vs. 

Rizzo's Bar & Grill has a Tuscany look to it, and everything served here is made fresh and from scratch. Rizzo's gives to different organizations locally, and to PanCan.org. For more information on Rizzo's, check them out in our directory or leave a review by clicking . 

54th Street has been at this location August 2007 and has been in business since 1989. The general manager lives in the Wentzville area and is really an asset to this restaurant. He keeps it hopping. The bar crowd is separated from the dining area and the decor is eye-catching. Everywhere you look is a piece of art or a collectible, from vintage beer signs to a motorcycle hanging from the entrance. 54th Street has a very large menu. For more information on 54th Street, check them out in our directory or leave a review by clicking HERE
