Neighborhood regulars flock to Celebration Restaurant for its home-cooked chicken fried steak, pot roast, casseroles and other comfort foods. Throughout spring and early summer, diners congregate on the spacious outdoor patio, which readers voted the best in Preston Hollow.

Celebration opened in 1971 and is known for its traditional take on American food — the kind you’d cook at home if you had the time, says Leah Ferraro who runs the Celebration Market across the parking lot.

The rustic patio resembles a small-town, country scene with a double-sided waterfall and wood-burning fireplace. Misters keep the area cool even in the heat of summer.

Runner up: Inwood Tavern

Third place: True Food Kitchen
