WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- From pizza to sports bars, cocktails to farmers markets, Daily Voice readers showed their fierce loyalty to specific food categories by picking -- and then voting on -- their favorites.
It was all part of our first year of DVlicious contests where readers submitted their top choice contenders. Those were then whittled down to five finalists who were profiled with features before voting ended. Along the way there was lots of good-natured rivalry as many eateries took to Facebook encouraging their customers to cast their ballot and declare them the winner.
Here's who made it into Westchester's DVlicious Hall of Fame in 2015:
Pizza: Johnny's in Mount Vernon was "the big cheese," so to speak, with 50 percent of the vote. Broadway Pizza in North White Plains and Frank Pepe Pizzeria in Yonkers scored second and third with 18 percent and 17 percent respectively. The eatery is located at 30 W. Lincoln Ave., (914) 668-1957.

Burgers: The perfect patty can be found at Burger Barn in Somers , at least according to Daily Voice readers. The restaurant won the "DVlicious Best Burger in Westchester" title with 42 percent of the vote. Burger Barn is at 289 Route 100, (914) 276-0600, www.theburgerbarn.com/ .
