“It’s pretty awesome, if you look at the items that were there, they’re some of my local favorites and to come out on top is a real honor and a testament to the fans and customers that come in and get the waffle fries, so we’re very proud of it,” said Robert Caron, from Vango’s
“That really was the goal, to get people out and about and maybe trying a new place and really supporting these businesses during what has been and is a crazy time for restaurant owners,” said Doug Lindblom, Co-creator of MarquetteNow.
