The Star Tribune along with Becker Furniture, hosts an online best-of-contest that extends from the Iowa border up to our border with Canada and east to Wisconsin and West to South Dakota and North Dakota. That contest is called Minnesota's Best, and online voting is happening right now. This year there is a section devoted to just St. Cloud-area restaurants. Here's who's been nominated as one of Minnesota's Best in the St. Cloud area.

How the online award contest works is that the public heads to and cast votes across different categories, helping to decide what truly is the best of Minnesota. There are hundreds of categories from food to entertainment, construction, lawyers, etc.
