Miami Spice: The Good, the Best, and the Misses (Part 1)

Miami Spice is both wonderful and overwhelming. With 199 restaurants to choose from and only 60 days to indulge, selecting your next bargain-priced, three-course meal can prove daunting.

So it's time to uphold an age-old Short Order tradition: a three-part series on the good, the best, and the misses -- a closer look at this year's Miami Spice ranking offerings from the restaurants that put out the best menus to the deals that don't quite add up.

We begin with the good.
