The Midwest Region Steakhouse Chef Competition

This Competition put the Chefs to the test! The pressure was on while the Chefs of the Hollywood Family battled it out for the prestigious Director's Cut Award. In the end, there could be only one. That lone victor was Hollywood Casino Joliet. Their Chef Nick Dispenza was able to really wow with his unique flavors and presentation.
