Call off the Italian Beef tasting - Brown's Chicken & Pasta has declared itself the winner

Dickson, you may not have to drive fellow hounds around on the quest for the Holy Grail.

In todays Tribune there was a full color flyer of a beaming Frank Portillo (Dick, of Portillo's, brother) declaring Brown's the winner of the Chicago Beef wars.

Frank allegedly went on a year long quest eating hundreds of beefs. The champion claims to use Fontanini beef and Gonnella bread.

Fortunately, I never happen to be around a Brown's outlet. Does anyone care to take a bullet for the troops? One positive note, it can't be any worse than the 'pasta' they dish out.

In the same ad, there is a coupon for a 99 cent Chicago Way hot dog. A rival for Harry V's delectable Bunny Hutch dog?

In case Frank isn't on the hooka, as I suspect, and the beef is better than Al's and Johnnie's, you may want to jump on board before the word gets out. He's soliciting new franchisees.
