The upcoming Super Bowl has us thinking about chili-- traditional Super Bowl fare.
In this week's Chowdown Showdown we want to know who makes the best chili in the Barrington, Lake Zurich area.
You can let us know your favorite spot by commenting below. You will be able to submit your vote through 5 p.m. Tuesday.
From there, we will take the top three finalists and post in an article first thing Wednesday morning. Then it will be time to vote again — this time for the Chowdown Showdown champion.
Voting will continue through 5 p.m. Friday, and we will announce the winner first thing Saturday morning.
If you are really pulling for a certain restaurant, you can share this column on your personal Facebook page and Twitter feed and ask your followers to vote.
This is all about participation so we hope you will chime in and check back.
So, without further ado, lets get the voting started. Patch readers, tell us by commenting below, where is the BEST place to get a bowl of chili in the Lake Zurich, Barrington area?
