In a David vs. Goliath matchup, The Woodshed and Shady Oak BBQ are playing for the right to face off against the winner of No. 8 Riscky's and No. 9 The Reservoir.

Woodshed bracket chunk

No. 1 The Woodshed

Style: BBQ

Location: 3201 Riverfront Dr.

Price Range: ~$11-$30

One of three Tim Love venues in the bracket, the Woodshed is the overall No. 1 seed. Here's a positive review from Yelp:

I had been here before, sat outside, and enjoyed some acoustic guitar. Yes, it is as wonderful as it sounds. There was also a lot more beer drinking since we had to wait at the bar, which stocks a decent craft beer selection. If I had reviewed it back then I'm sure it would get the same 5 stars. I remember the food being good but the atmosphere stuck out the most.

No. 16 Shady Oak BBQ

Style: BBQ

Location: 6364 Sandshell Dr.

Price Range: ~$13-$25

Even though it's the No. 16 seed, Shady Oak is no pushover. It's a long time BBQ staple in Fort Worth, and it won't go down without a fight. Here's a positive Yelp review:

The food is great. Nothing fancy about the food, but very filling. Every time I go over there, I end up eating quite a bit. The servers are extremely friendly too. They have an outdoor patio, plus a few benches outside with a view of a lake, which can be pretty relaxing during your lunch break.

Time to vote! Who deserves to move on?
