Re:MATSU Family Restaurant voted #1 in Vally
LOL...ROFL...I get this feeling the OP was inspired by my "Best Pizza In The Valley" comment on a similar thread yesterday. As I have written here several times, it refers to those readers awards that are put on by publishers of free weekly newspapers. It is a happy confluence of the publishers who "declare the winners", the advertisers, the locations where the papers are distributed (usually on the premises of the advertisers), the readers (who usually pick up the paper while visiting the restaurant being advertised,) and the voters who by now are familiar with the restaurants being advertised.
The reason for my feeling is that, at least in the online version of the newspaper, the list was released back on April 30th, 2009. The title of the article was "2009 Best of the Valley" (what a coincidence.) There is a difference here, being that the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman is a regular newspaper sold for money on newstands, etc. With about 80 restaurants being listed for Wasilla, many of them chains and FF joints, the Family Restaurant does appear to be popular locally. The picture taken indoors on the home page of the restaurant's web site sure suggests Roadfood.
