Rock Falls is in the top five for an ongoing nationwide contest to bring the Portillo's Beef Bus to town.
The popular food chain launched a food truck in the fall to travel the country and offer up its Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef, and crinkle-cut fries and cheese sauce, and there's a contest to determine what cities get added to the list.
Rock Falls was number 4 on the voting leader board Thursday afternoon, and area organizations are promoting the contest on social media hoping for a spot.
The contest is open to any city in the continental 48 states, and voting will be open until the end of April. The Beef Bus route started in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and is in Tampa, Florida.
