IT'S TIME.

The Corn Nation Food Bracket has its 64 entries.

Four 16 establishment brackets have been selected. It will be up to YOU, THE READER, to decide who will win these 63 matchups.

How it works:

For the next 2 months, we will put up a pair of eateries in our brackets. We will ask you, the reader, to vote on which one will move on. There will be a Final Four with the winners of all 4 brackets, and off of that we will decide a National Champion.

We encourage you and your friends to get the word out to folks and such about these places. We will make sure that you know where they are, and what they offer.

The Brackets:

There are four brackets that we have divided eateries. They are as follows:

Lincoln: These are exclusive to the City of Lincoln.

Omaha: These are exclusive to the City of Omaha.

Nebraska: These are eateries that are not located in either Lincoln or Omaha, but is not a chain.

National Chain: These are "chain" eateries that have locations in both Nebraska and outside the state of Nebraska. This does include certain chains that originate in the state of Nebraska.

THE SELECTIONS:

Here we go, these are the matchup's. The tournament field is set, therefore there are some that may not make the cut. We apologize, but them's the rules.
