No. 8 Lili's Bistro

Style: American

Location: 1310 W. Magnolia Ave.

Price Range: ~$11-$30

Here's a positive review from Yelp:

Lili's Bistro. It's definitely bistro-y to me. What do you envision when you read or hear the word "bistro"? An intimate setting with small tables, outdoor seating, and green ivy majestically wrapped around old trellises. Yes! Thick pieces of fresh baked, rustic, floury bread... beautiful sandwiches stuffed with local produce and cheese. Delicate glasses of fragrant wine. Yes, yes. That's what I picture in my mind, and that's pretty much what I experienced here at Lili's. It just FEELS like the kind of cozy, local, European bistro you see in movies or read about. But they're not trying too hard, it's not cheesy. Lili's IS a genuinely cozy, local bistro right here in Fort Worth.

No. 9 Old Neighborhood Grill

Style: American

Location: 1633 Park Place Ave.

Price Range: ~$11-$30

Here's a positive Yelp review:

Great little neighborhood restaurant!  Hunter took our order and was very nice.  The garden salad was delicious and was made even better by the great dressing.  The chicken fried steak was well prepared; lightly breaded and tender.  The cream gravy was very good and was made to the perfect consistency.  We tried the fried green beans which were good, but I have to admit that I felt guilty with each bite knowing that I had taken a healthy bean and turned it into a heart hardening bad vegetable, if you could still call it a vegetable.  Lol.

Time to vote! Who deserves to move on?
