Best of the Fox Winners

The Northwest Herald’s Best of the Fox Readers’ Choice Awards were announced at a great evening affair recently in Crystal Lake.

The awards honor the best of the best in McHenry County. It was the greatest turnout of votes in the history of the awards, making this year’s winners extra special.

The restaurant categories are what get my appetite going, and although I’ve been to almost every winning restaurant, there are new categories and new winners to explore.

Best Chicken Wings debuted this year, much to my pleasure. I can think of nothing better than an ice-cold beer and some great hot wings. Buffalo Wild Wings took the top honor here, followed by Wings Etc. and D.C. Cobb’s.

I’ve been to D.C. Cobb’s before, but I’ve never had their wings, so off I will go soon to compare and enjoy another great food quest to conquer. My favorite wings are at Wings Etc., but it might be because they have the coldest draft beer in town. I love that place.
