According to Feast Magazine, downtown Springfield is home to many of the culinary bests from southwest Missouri to South of Chicago.
Downtown SGF boasts the best steakhouse, diner, beer, cocktails and pastries (and donut shop). In the magazine’s annual Awards for 50 food-related categories, seven winners came from #downtownsgf. Three other downtown establishments were named runners up.
Hurts Donut Co. snagged two titles; best donut shop and the Wham-bulance grabbed top honors for dessert food truck.
City Butcher, on Springfield’s South side, dominated all barbecue and charcuterie categories. It added five awards to Springfield’s total. Pineapple Whip followed the Wham-bulance for sweet food truck recognition. Gilardi’s on Historic Walnut Street won best Italian restaurant.
