Munch Madness Final Four Voting Closes Tuesday Night

You've heard of March Madness, right? Well, this is Munch Madness—Woodridge Patch's attempt to find the best restaurant in Woodridge.

I've tabulated the results from the Elite Eight, and with exactly 100 votes placed on the site and on Facebook, here are your Final Four.

I've added the vote totals for that round and the two rounds before to the bracket so you can see just how close some of these contests have been. In the case of a tie, I have determined the winner by a coin toss. There has only been one tie so far in the competition (Superossa vs. The Dock in the Sweet 16).

In case you haven't heard about this competition yet, Munch Madness is a tournament to determine the best restaurant in Woodridge through a series of head-to-head competitions. We started with 32 restaurants. After each round, we'll eliminate half of the restaurants until we have one left. 

Restaurants advance in each round depending on the number of votes they receive on the site, on Facebook and on Twitter. The three different platforms mean that by following us on Twitter and liking us on Facebook, you get three votes.

Restaurants were organized into four regions depending on their location around town.

Final four voting will be open until Tuesday at 8 p.m. Good luck to all of the restaurants!
