ESCANABA — Results are in from last Friday’s Ribfest in Escanaba. Organizers say it was a close race to win you over.

By popular vote, Crispigna’s cooked the fan favorite rib. Irish Oaks and Drifter’s Family Restaurant were tied for second. Other local businesses that competed were Ludington Grill, Andy’s Diner and Babaloon’s. This was the third consecutive Ribfest organized by the Escanaba Downtown Development Authority.

They say they are planning next year’s Ribfest for the same Friday after Memorial Day.
