The juiciest burger, the most thirst-quenching beer and the most relaxing massage. The answers are all here in Rapid City Journal's 2018 Best of the Black Hills.
The votes have been cast, the totals have been tallied and the Best of the Black Hills are now crowned.
We received more than 2,700 nominations of businesses you believed should be named the very best in our region. Then it was again your turn to decide who should be the winners.
More than 5,200 people cast 55,389 votes for the businesses in the 143 sub-categories.
Those votes were tallied, and first-, second- and third-place winners were named. First place winners will receive a plaque and second and third place winners will receive a certificate that they can display at their places of business. Consumers, when you see the Best of the Black Hills logo, you will know they were recognized as a leader in their category by the people of the Black Hills.
The top vote-getters in the 15 major categories also received a short write-up in this publication about their business.
Thanks to all who participated, and congratulations to the winners of the 2018 Best of the Black Hills.
