It's the annual competition you don't want to miss, and now that it's a decade in, it could be the best one yet.

We know you already love our local restaurants and you love the chefs who make it all happen, deliciously, service after service. But this is America, dang it, and we're not happy until we find out who does it THE BEST in a friendly, or even not-so-friendly competition. 

And this being the 10th anniversary you know it's gonna go down, and it's gonna go down huge. 

Here are all the preliminary details you need to know about this year's Iron Fork, and how to be the first in line. The next best thing to being the best is being first:
