Every year the Mankato Free Press polls residents and visitors alike to develop their annual Best of Mankato issue. This publication is full of listings of the best places to go to based on specific categories. Below is a list of winners in different dining and drinking categories. Please keep in mind that it’s really just a snapshot-in-time survey, and doesn’t mean that anyone who didn’t “win” isn’t very good at what they do.

Below is a partial list of winners. Check out the FULL LIST of winners here.
