We asked our social media followers to nominate their favorite restaurant in Council Bluffs or Pottawattamie County to get pizza from, and the response was great! We received over 150 individual nominations and the top 16 restaurants with the most nominations were randomized and then placed into our bracket voting competition. 

The restaurants with the most nominations from our social media followers were Casey's, Glory Days Sports Bar & Grill, Lansky's, The Porch, Lincoln's Pub, Pizza King, Dough Boyz Pizza & Phillys, Godfather's, The Dock Bar & Grill, Pizza Counter, Barley's, Bertha's Bar & Grill, Big Kel's Pizza & Wings, Denny's Place, Pomodoro Fresh Italian, and Pizza Ranch

The Votes Are In! 

The votes have been totaled and our winner has been selected by our followers! Pizza King progressed through all four rounds of voting and won the bracket competition with a total of 729 votes. Pizza King is a family operation that has been serving the Council Bluffs area since 1965. They are best known for their pizza but they also serve prime rib, steaks, and seafood.
