We were not surprised that more than 3,550 readers took the time to cast a ballot for their favorite, but we were surprised that of the 45 nominees, just two secured more than 50 percent of the vote.
And the winner is… Chicago Street Pub in downtown Joliet.
We know there was a real push among fans to win this bar, located at 75 N. Chicago St., the crown, and they managed to deliver 29 percent. In second place, with 25 percent of the vote, was Maneuvers, also downtown at 118 W. Jefferson St.
