"Pizza Wars 3 was a jam-packed success," according to the Skokie Patch.
"The event, which started at 6 p.m. on Thursday, was held at Niles West High School. Within half-an-hour of kicking off, there was a line outside the building and some 800 tickets were already purchased. Hosted by District 219's Education Foundation for Excellence, Pizza Wars has come a long way from its humble beginnings.
But who won Pizza Wars 3? More than a dozen restaurants competed – some from as far as Wheeling – but in the end, it was downtown Skokie's very own Village Inn.
"After three years, it feels great to finally bring home the 'bacon,'" said Village Inn owner Randy Miles. "It's nice, you know. I feel vindicated after not winning the last two years."
