The 2016 list of Michelin's Bib Gourmand restaurants have been named.

Bibs are given to restaurants that serve good-quality meals—two courses and a glass of wine or dessert—for a cost of $40 or less, plus tax and tip.

While most of these restaurants deserve to be on this list, there are a few that many say should get at least one Michelin star instead, as you cannot win a star if you are on this unofficial "runner up" list.

What do you think?
