With this year’s contest started, we went into the archives to find the categories that have had the most debate since we restarted Best of Dayton in 2015. And these line up with the same arguments you always have with friends: Who has the best donuts? Where do I get the best wings?

We need your help in settling these debates this year:

• Best Bakery

• Best BBQ
