the arena for food scouts

about bigtime bites
Bigtime Bites is a place where food lovers can share their favorite dishes from around the world. The idea was created by Rich Cho, the former General Manager of the Charlotte Hornets NBA basketball team. Rich loves to explore different cities looking for great food, and at Bigtime Bites, he shares his favorite dishes, writing a brief Scouting Report and giving a rating to each dish. Bigtime Bites is unique in that visitors to the site can also file their own Visitor Scouting Reports and share Bigtime Bites that they experience around the world. Once a week, randomly selected users who file Visitor Scouting Reports will be sent a Bigtime Bites hat or t-shirt. Bigtime Bites doesn't share negative reviews of restaurants or dishes. Instead, it's an arena for sharing great (i.e., Bigtime) dishes. This means even a dish that has the "lowest" score on our rating system is still Bigtime!
