Best Restaurant in Bloomington, Illinois

Flingers Wins Best Overall Restaurant in 2022 Readers' Choice Voting! Fans have voted us Best Overall Restaurant for the 3rd year in a row, Best Bar for the 6th year in a row, and Jules won Best Bartender!

Thank You!

Each year, our local newspaper, The Pantagraph, hosts a Readers’ Choice Voting contest to let the community nominate, vote, and decide their top choices for a variety of businesses, products and services.

In 2022 you nominated Flingers in a lot of categories (including our chicken wings, salads, and our outdoor dining), but honestly, the three categories we had our eye on this year were:

And on Sept. 16th 2022, when the awards were publicly announced, we learned that you helped us win all three!

There are a lot of great local restaurants in Bloomington-Normal (Epiphany Farms, Fort Jesse Café, Mystic Kitchen, and Biaggi’s…just to name a few).

We’re humbled to steward the top spot again as Bloomington-Normal’s Best Restaurant, especially as so many restaurants, us included, continue to face such unprecedented challenges and difficult decisions.

Thank you for your support. We’ll do our best to continuing earning it.
