It's a BBQ showdown, and here are the contestants. Winner of this matchup faces the winner of No. 5 Reata and No. 12 Texas de Brazil.

Railhead bracket piece

No. 4 Railhead

Style: BBQ

Location: 2900 Montgomery St.

Price Range: ~$11-$30

The coldest beer in Fort Worth, hands down. Here's a positive review from Yelp:

Stepping inside, the wood smoke smells heavenly. Service was quick and professional, and I ordered a chopped beef sandwich because everyone in the line ahead of me had ordered one, which I find is generally a decent recommendation if you can't decide. It simply melted when I took a bite. I nearly cried, it was so good. Perfect consistency, excellent flavour (not too sweet, not too salty), and it didn't need any barbecue sauce. That being said, the sauce served was delicious, and I did find myself dipping the sandwich every third bite or so.

No. 13 Clay Pigeon Food and Drink

Style: Local Organic

Location: 2731 White Settlement Rd.

Price Range: ~$31-$60

The Clay Pigeon supports local businesses and buys local, organic foods to cook with. Here's a positive Yelp review:

We started with the bone marrow appetizer and acorn squash soup.  The bone marrow appetizer was divine, a must order.  The soup was just as divine!  For the main course, my husband ordered the wood grilled steak.  It doesn't get much better.  I had the duck with scalloped yams, a fantastic recommendation from our waiter, Kevin.  Delicious.  We ended with the bread pudding, another must order.  I can't wait to go back and try other items on the menu.  With the perfect blend of spices and textures to bring out the natural best in the food he serves, Marcus Paslay is a genius.  GENIUS.  Thank you!!  We will be back soon....

Time to vote! Who deserves to move on?
