Every year, our editors work hard to survey the local scene and deliver the annual Best of Baltimore feature. But we know that readers also have their own thoughts on what reigns supreme in the city, so we created the Best of Baltimore Readers’ Poll to honor their picks.

Over four weeks, you told us which people, places, and things—ranging from Best Bagel to Best Roofer—make our area special.

With hundreds of thousands of votes submitted, this was one of our most successful Readers’ Polls to date.

A few quick stats:
• 138,632 votes submitted
• 120 categories
• 374 winners and finalists

Thanks to each and every reader who took the time to rally behind Charm City’s best.
