It’s time for another Chowdown Showdown, our popular weekly feature that will not only give you great ideas on where to eat, but gives you the chance to rave about your favorite places in town.
The Chowdown Showdown has two components. The first is when we call on you, our brutally honest readers, and gather votes for the best representative from Oak Lawn.
After we declare an Oak Lawn winner, we have a taste test where Palos, Evergreen Park and Oak Lawn restaurants are pitted against each other and each town's editor weighs in on who makes a particular dish best.
It's all in good fun.
Before the competition starts, we need your ideas on who our Oak Lawn representative should be.
This week's showdown will celebrate that summer necessity - ice cream. We want to keep it simple and pure: What is the best single scoop of ice cream in town. We have already highlighted milkshakes and will tackle sundaes later this summer. This competition is all about the perfect single bite of coolness. Tell us the best flavor and who serves it up.
How to Vote
There are three ways to vote for your favorite.
- Leave a comment on this article and tell us your pick and why you think they are the best.
- Find your pick in our Oak Lawn Patch Directory and leave a review and tell the world just how good their ice cream is.
- Go to the Oak Lawn Facebook page and tell us your pick.
Get your votes in by Monday at midnight. We will announce the winner and share the results of our taste test on Wednesday.
That's Not All . . .
The Oak Lawn Patch Directory allows you to leave reviews of your all your favorite places in town. From auto shops to eye doctors, hot dog stands to churches, find them in the directory and tell everyone why they are great.
