Best tacos. Best brunch. Best Chinese. We asked. You answered. The Columbus Monthly Readers' Picks.

Columbus Monthly magazine has been putting out its annual "Best of Columbus" every July since 1983. And every year, as part of that feature package, we've asked our readers to vote on their favorite things about the city.

Of course, back in the day, that was done with paper ballots and snail mail (or worse, a fax machine.) Today, it's all done online, and thousands of you voted for our 2016 Readers' Poll. Thank you.

Here are the readers' top-two picks in 44 different Food and Drink categories (along with the percentage of votes received).
