Who should advance?

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Winner takes on the winner of No. 4 Salsa Limon vs. No. 5 La Familia.

No. 1 Original Mexican Eats

Style: Mexican

Location: 4713 Camp Bowie Blvd.

Price Range: ~$11-$30

Here's a positive review from Yelp:

Some of the best Mexican food in Fort Worth. Try the chicken fajitas or the pollo a la parilla. The Original has great happy hour deals and even better deals when the Rangers or Cowboys are playing. The new patio is the perfect place to take a group on a Friday night.

No. 8 Mariposa's

Style: Latin American

Location: 5724 Locke Ave.

Price Range: ~$1-$30

Here's a positive review from Yelp:

Tried this place for the first time and I have no idea how we've never tried it before! You're allowed to create your own dish (to a certain extent I'm sure) but the waiter recommended pork tamales and they were amazing!! They also had a special with blackened salmon and cabbage that I got and it was great! Not as good as the pork tamales my fiancé got but I was getting it to be health conscious, anyway so I went in knowing that. We ordered a homemade red velvet cupcake for dessert and my fiancé, who hates sweets, said it was the best dessert he's ever had! Will definitely be back. Fantastic service, too!

Time to vote! Who deserves to move on?
