Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG Binghamton) With the last day of Spiedie Fest coming to a close, the only thing left to do was hold the competition that started it all.

On Sunday, competitors were brought together again for the same reason that brought them together 30 years ago.

"To see what the Spiedie Fest has grown into is really something to be proud of and I just think it's great that we have so many different cooks here today," said Broome County Executive Debbie Preston.

There are all different types, flavors and styles of spiedies now. Each one has its own, unique flavor, which makes it tough on the judges' decision.

"You know, I am looking for something that is really unique. Certainly I am someone who has had a lot of spiedies during my time in Binghamton. I know what they taste like. I am looking for somebody to kind of come up with something new and delicious. And that is one of the key factors I am looking for," said Binghamton Mayor Rich David.

Once all the judge tasted the savory Binghamton treats, they were soon able to make their decisions.

In third place was Louie G. and Tanya from Wild 104. Second place went to Time Warner Cable.

First place was awarded to Howard Manges and Dave Greber of WBNG.

After all the awards were handed out, there was more than enough good food to go around.
