Best of Payson 2013

Photo detail

Best Bartender Sal Mercado It would not be a Best of Award ceremony without Sal Mercado winning Best Bartender. The well known multi-year winner said the award is great job security. But he probably doesn’t need it because he considers the bar’s owners family. “They have taken me in as family and made it into a family restaurant,” he said. “It is a super fun, super crazy job. It is a good time and I like being on the side that I am of the bar.” RUNNERS-UP: Angela Hill (Apache Spirits) and Tara Fuller-Smith (Apache Spirits)
