Boris and Robyn asked for your favorites among the mid-Hudson region restaurants and breweries ⁠— and man, did you deliver. Thousands of votes were cast in 10 categories in the seventh annual Boris & Robyn Battle of the Best contest.

We'll be unveiling the winners of two categories each day this week. Monday's announcement includes the Best Sandwich and Best Hot Dog winners.

We're happy to announce that Pete's Hot Dogs of Newburgh won Best Hot Dog with 31% of the vote.
