Winner faces off against the winner of No. 2 Angelo's vs. No. 6 Lonesome Dove.

No. 5 Reata

Style: Southwestern

Location: 310 Houston St.

Price Range: ~$31-$60

Do you like patios? Well the Reata has a great one...ON ITS ROOF. Here's a positive review from Yelp:

Was in Fort Worth this weekend for my friend's wedding and I must say that this fancy restaurant will have me craving for more Texas style food and atmosphere over and over again, now that I am back at home.  
Meals are huge and impossible to finish, especially for a light eater like myself, yet served in very fancy manner. Loved calamari and bacon wrapped crab jalapeños.  
Service was wonderful and we'll definitely be back for more on my next visit to FW.

No. 16 Shady Oak BBQ

Style: BBQ

Location: 6364 Sandshell Dr.

Price Range: ~$13-$25

Even though it's the No. 16 seed, Shady Oak is no pushover. It's a long time BBQ staple in Fort Worth, and it won't go down without a fight. Here's a positive Yelp review:

The food is great. Nothing fancy about the food, but very filling. Every time I go over there, I end up eating quite a bit. The servers are extremely friendly too. They have an outdoor patio, plus a few benches outside with a view of a lake, which can be pretty relaxing during your lunch break.

Time to vote! Who deserves to move on?
