(4) La Parilla vs (5) Papa Keno's

Here's one of those sneaky great 4-5 matchups, where it's a shame someone isn't going to make the Sweet 16-- like Northern Iowa-Louisville last year, or maybe Arizona-Texas in 2011.  Both La Parilla and Papa Keno's cruised in the first round.  La Parilla knocked off Tryaki (who I thought had a whiff of Cinderalla potential) with 71% of the votes, and Papa Keno's rolled BurgerFi in one of the biggest first round blowouts, taking 85% from the relative newcomer to Lawrence.  I think both La Parilla and Papa Keno's would be primed for a decent run through the Gibert Brown region if they didn't have to face each other, particularly with the top two seeds getting eliminated in Round 1.

I'm a pretty big fan of both Parilla and Keno's, and both places usually rank pretty high in the Best-of-Lawrence contests.  I would predict Papa Keno's insanely popular pizza would advance, but The Flamingo beat Johnny's, so what do I know.
