In a first round matchup in the Catalinas Region, six-seed Rocco's Little Chicago will take on 11-seed Teresa's Mosaic Cafe. Mosaic is pretty much the lone active contender from the west side of I-10, so get on it west side of Tucson.

Be sure to vote in the poll at the bottom. You can also vote by tweeting the restaurant name with the hashtag #TRT.

Tale of the Tape

(6) Rocco's Little Chicago

Rocco's Jason Bartel

Neighborhood: Sam Hughes


Cuisine: Pizza and wings

Yelp rating: 4 stars

Entertaining Yelp review: "I eat a stupid amount of pizza. This is Arizona's best. I live in Phoenix and visit Tucson weekly for business. I always grab two pies to go; a thin to eat on my drive home and a deep dish to nurse me through the next few days."

(11) Teresa's Mosaic Cafe

Mosaic Cafe Jason Bartel

Neighborhood: Ironwood Ridges


Cuisine: Mexican

Yelp rating: 3.5 stars

Entertaining Yelp review: "Seriously, their green corn tamales made from scratch there in the restaurant are so good I could cry! In fact I'm tearing up a little even writing this review knowing that I'm in Seattle and Teresa's Mosaic is in Tucson and it's going to be a while before I get to come to town and visit. Why! Oh why?! Must these green corn tamales be SO good and yet so far away from me?"
