Vote for the four finalists

FALL RIVER — It’s time for Round 3, aka the Final Four, of our head-to-head tournament to determine our favorite iconic Fall River food.

Voting started two weeks ago and in the narrowing we’ve narrowed down our original list of 16 classic Spindle City dishes to four, you’ve knocked out classics like the Coney Island hot dog, grilled cheese sandwich, Patti’s Pierogis, and Venus de Milo soup. Now it’s time to determine which two classic dishes will face off in the final.

Voting will open every Wednesday for three weeks and close on Sundays. Here are your competitors. Keep scrolling to vote!

Chorizo ​​sandwich and fries.

Chorizo ​​and French fries: The classic English fish and chips gets a Portuguese twist with spicy sausage sliced ​​into slices instead of seafood. The best way to eat chorizo ​​and chips, of course, is to pack the chips and chorizo ​​into a hearty roll.
