The South Side Soup Contest is a chance for local restaurants and businesses to serve up tasty soup and strut their stuff. We know that plenty of culinary talent and great businesses are in the South Side, and the Contest is the perfect way to let them both take the stage. Since we launched in 2005, attendees have been voting for their favorites. Take a look at who’s been winning bragging rights, and get ready to get your soup on!
