Hands down

Context 1: 

Title: Two friends

Bob:  Hey, Miriam! Did you try that Mexican restaurant I recommended?
Miriam: Hey! Yes, I did. I went there with my boyfriend… You know he is from Mexico, right?
Bob: Oh, that’s why you were asking about Mexican places! Did he like it?
Miriam: He did! He said that restaurant is hands down the best Mexican restaurant in L.A!
Bob: Really? Wow! I thought the food was good, but after hearing that, I know it is really the best one in town!
Miriam: Yes, thank you so much for the recommendation. Guess what happened during dinner?
Bob: I don’t know. What happened?
Miriam: My boyfriend proposed! He asked me to marry him!
Bob: That’s incredible! Congratulations… Did you say ‘yes’?
Miriam: Actually, I did not.
Bob: What? Wh… wha… What are you talking about?
Mriam: Bob, I met someone who is kind, smart, handsome, and every time I see him, my heart melts… He is hands down the best guy I have ever met… I fell in love with him!
Bob: Oh, really? Lucky guy… I fell in love with the nicest girl, but I know she just sees me as a friend.
Miriam: No, she doesn’t… She loves you, too…
Bob: Miriam, what are you talking about?
Miriam: I love you, Bob!
Bob: Miriam, you are hands down one of my best friends, but… I am in love with your sister.

Context 2: 

Title: Are you serious?

Janet:  Miriam just broke up with Mark.
Kristy: That’s too bad. They were hands down the coolest couple at work!
Janet: I know! I think I will ask him out on a date…
Kristy: Janet! Are you serious?

Hands down means: “without a doubt”
