Original Tommy's vs Tommy Jr.'s Chili Taste-Off

HBfoodie | Jul 14, 2009 10:24 PM

The OC Register recently printed the results of an informal taste-off between Original Tommy's chili against a new rival, Tommy Jr's Original Chili. The latter is owned by the son of the Original Tommy's burger stand founder in L.A. and he claims that his chili is the original meat-only chili recipe that his father used over 60 years ago (I attached the entire newspaper article below). The chili taste-off was easily won by Tommy Jr.'s and I'm very anxious to try it. According to the article, unless you go on-line to and have it shipped, the only other way to buy the chili is at some Food 4 Less stores..... Any comments from Hounds who have ate Tommy Jr's chili?---And does anyone know what markets are carrying it?
