The winner gets a matchup with (probably) the overall no. 1 seed The Woodshed.

Woodshed bracket chunk

No. 8 Riscky's BBQ

Style: BBQ

Location: 300 Main St.

Price Range: ~$11-$30

In a region full of BBQ powerhouses, it's easy to overlook Riscky's. Probably shouldn't though. Here's a positive review from Yelp:

This restaurant is always pleasurable to come and eat. The brisket is literally to die for. Pork ribs are very tender and the sausage is great!!!! The environment is good too. Many decorations on the walls. Very friendly staff. Knowledgeable. They made good suggestions for my friend that came from out of town.

No. 9 The Reservoir Bar, Patio & Kitchen

Style: American

Location: 1001 Foch St.

Price Range: ~$11-$30

Not always known for its food, this sports bar can hold its own. Here's a positive Yelp review:

Fun, outside tables, happy hour
...what more could you ask!?!  Great cajun shrimp tacos, happy hour $1 off beer and well drinks, and lots of choices for appetizers...outdoor seating was nice, fans running, sports channels going, and beat the crowd by showing up before five!!!

Time to vote! Who deserves to move on?
