It's time for another big time CN Food Bracket Tournament matchup. The National bracket gets another matchup here, as we want to keep it more local this weekend with the rest of the Lincoln bracket.

You know where to go to get the live and finished results so far. Here we go, this is (somehow) the 2nd vs 15th seed showdown.

A Yelp review:

I went to Runza's recently on a trip to Nebraska and was blown away.  My girlfriend kept telling me that I have to try Runza's burgers, that they were the best around, so I figured ok cool, its a resturaunt with great burgers.  She never mentioned that it was a fast food place, and i never would have throught to ask.  Since she kept talking about them having great burgers I just assumed this was a fancy sit down place.

When we pulled up to a fast food place I was surprised and wasn't expecting much.  She ordered a burger and I ordered a buffalo chicken sandwich and we sat down to eat.  I tried a bite of her burger and was pissed that I didn't get one myself.

The burgers were so good.  I don't know what flavoring they put in it, but whatever it is, I am glad they do.  It tastes like they put pepper and some other seasonings in with the ground beef they make the burgers at, so the flavor goes throughout the whole thing.  I was also surprised to find out that you can buy them frozen, when the person behind me in line came in and ordered 20 frozen and brought a cooler with her to fill it up with.

The chicken sandwich was great and the fries were very good as well.  I thought the burgers were so good though, I decided to get one to go and ate it as we left.

What a pleasant surprise :)

A Yelp review:

Good burgers and the side of fries is huge, enough to split among 2 or 3 people.  Their a little slow in making your food but it's made fresh so that's a plus.  They have free peanuts to snack on while you wait which is a nice bonus for any restaurant.  They also have a nice selection of burger toppings but I would like a few more unique items to make it even better.
