Last week we wanted to say thank you for two years of Racine County Eye by recognizing local businesses you think are the best in Eastern Racine County.

Over the course of five days we asked for nominations for the best restaurant, auto repair, store, plumber, electrician and HVAC. You provided some great suggestions; so many at times that we had to list all the mentions instead of just the top five.

Then, we asked you to vote and promised to reveal the winners Monday in each category.

Here is who you chose as the Best of Racine County Eye:

Restaurant: Kiss the Cook

Auto Repair: Stu’s

Store: Humble Home

Plumber: Rubel

Electrician: Sondergaard

HVAC: First Call

Congratulations! In addition to bragging rights, winners will also get a gift certificate from another local business.

Thank you to everyone who participated; we’re thankful for your support of Racine County Eye and of our locally owned businesses.
