Best Of Palo Alto

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, step right up for a chance to see a show bursting with wonders and delights guaranteed to dazzle your every sense. The Palo Alto Weekly's Best Of Palo Alto is rolling back into town to shine its lights, pull back the curtains and introduce the best of what Palo Alto has to offer.

Determined to please, the Palo Alto Weekly has gathered almost 34,000 votes from the community and has crafted a one-of-a-kind experience featuring businesses and organizations from 90 different categories that you, the Weekly's readers, have deemed supreme. Whatever your fancy, this year's Best Of Palo Alto has it all, from the most indulgent milkshake at Palo Alto Creamery Fountain & Grill to the most striking hairdo at Juut Salonspa. To keep things exciting, the program also features some rising stars, businesses like the new educational toy store Gray Matters and burrito destination Sancho's Taqueria, which have stolen the hearts of our audience.

For longtime followers of our tantalizing troupe, you'll recognize the 22 beloved standbys included in our Hall of Fame. These businesses — which have won Best Of awards in their categories for five years in a row — gain this treasured distinction for three years, providing them a lasting place in the spotlight while also allowing new performers to take the stage.

So come one, come all: Take a seat, grab an acai bowl and allow the 2015 Best Of winners to show off their superior service, delectable dishes and astounding attractions — all found right here in the Palo Alto area.
