Winner will face off against the winner of No. 4 Salsa Limon vs. No. 13 Chimy's.

No. 5 La Familia

Style: Mexican

Location: 841 Foch St.

Price Range: ~$11-$30

Here's a positive review from Yelp:

This place had top notch margaritas and service. I came here on a Saturday night with a group of 9. We were seated pretty fast and the wait staff was great. I had the chorizo chicken. I had never heard of this dish before but it looked great on the menu and I was no disappointed. The owner of the business was very attentive and would always come around to make sure we were not low on drinks or chips. The décor was very nice with old pictures of their familia that could easily be in a museum. The owner gladly sat down and explained several of the pictures he was in as a young man.

No. 12 Los Molcajetes

Style: Mexican

Location: 4320 Western Center Blvd.

Price Range: ~$11-$30

Here's a positive Yelp review:

We have been coming to this location for almost a decade now.  It has a cozy interior with great service, cold beers and some of the best Mexican food around.  I highly (VERY HIGHLY) recommend their Mole con Pollo...just ridiculously decadent.  
The Super Burrito is definitely super and their brisket tacos are phenomenal.  
Their chips and salsa are great, but if you want the good stuff, ask for a side of their salsa verde...SOOOO good (and spicy).

Time to vote! Who deserves to move on?
