Tucson Restaurant Tournament: Sweet Sixteen matchups, voting dates, results and more

Which establishments will make it to our Elite Eight?

We’re now down to our Sweet Sixteen in the inaugural Tucson Restaurant Tournament, and no one-seeds have made it through the first two rounds.

Voting in the second round got serious, as many matchups had over 20,000 votes, and a couple of games were actually decided by exactly one vote. Check out the full second round results here.

The Sweet Sixteen will work much like the second round did. New voting will open at 6 AM and 6 PM each day this week, and voting for each one will be open for four full days. All voting will take place on this website.

Without further ado, here is a closer look at the regions, and when you can vote for your favorite restaurant:
