Best of the Fox winners revealed Local businesses make us who we are. They’re what our community is built upon. They’re regular people, like you and me, trying to do extraordinary things for the residents of McHenry County. Each year, we ask our readers to point out the best of them. And we publish that list in our Best of the Fox readers’ choice contest. Earlier this year, we asked readers to tell us how they felt. In this section, we have compiled the winners. We appreciate our readers for taking the time to provide their input as this is an important distinction for area businesses that they should take pride in winning. Through our online survey, readers once again have picked out their go-to businesses in more than 150 different categories, from restaurants to auto repair shops to everything else you can imagine, including donuts.

This is a task our readers take on with serious dedication. Each year before we open the floodgates to voters, our Crystal Lake office is inundated with calls from people eager to cast ballots for businesses they care about deeply. Our readers always come through “in fantastic numbers” for these special companies. Today, we are pleased to announce winners in the 2018 Best of the Fox contest. In the following pages, you’ll find the businesses that our readers care about the most. As always, the favorite food category was the most popular category. More than 22,000 votes were logged in this category for individual winners in categories such as favorite burger, ice cream/frozen custard, pizza, breakfast, doughnut shop and place to watch the game. On Thursday, the Northwest Herald hosted a Best of the Fox award-winners celebration at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park at the

Dole Mansion in Crystal Lake. Congratulations to all of the winners who placed in the 2018 Best of the Fox contest. I can’t wait to see businesses proudly displaying their banners throughout the county for winning their 2018 Best of the Fox category
