Restaurant Bracket Challenge: Final Matchup

After three action packed rounds, and more than 9,000 votes, we have whittled down the competition from 16 to just 2. As the KCRA 3 A-List Restaurant Bracket Challenge comes to a close, it all comes down to one question - which restaurant is better: El Novillero or Tower Cafe?

As you ponder that question, consider the entire package: food, drink, ambiance, service and more.

Will El Novillero win your vote? The 5-time KCRA 3 A-List Winner for BEST Mexican has earned praise from every corner of Sacramento. Voters rave about the authentic family-style food; Katie W. "could eat here every day - chicken tacos are ah-mazing" and Carol B. adds "best carnitas and top shelf margaritas in town!" Jorge L. agrees, suggesting "the Davalos family has offered up some of the best Mexican food in Sacramento for many, many years" and is more nostalgic remembering "the days when it looked like just a drive-thru place...."

Or will it be Tower Cafe? The 2-time KCRA 3 A-List Winner for BEST Brunch has also placed in the Top 5 for BEST Breakfast and BEST Desserts. Tamara F. "can't say enough about their menu, their ambiance, their everything! Definitely my favorite place in Sacramento. Worth a visit from out of town. And I can hardly believe they're open late, too" while Erin R. thinks she has found the "best breakfast ever" in the "monte cristo with chipotle berry sauce." When George W. dines at Tower Cafe, he is transported to "Berkeley or SF. Outdoor dining is delightful. Great food, great variety, and great service."

So which will it be? Will Sacramento voters opt for the sweet and savory breakfast and desserts at Tower Cafe or the family-style authentic Mexican cuisine of El Novillero? Now's the time to vote! Voting ends tomorrow, Wednesday, August 1st and midnight.
