Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Eat for 2018

As the go-to guide for all things local, we know you are constantly searching Yelp for the answer to the eternal question ‘What should I eat?’ Today, we’re announcing our 5th annual Top 100 Places to Eat in the US list because we know you’ve got enough on your plate (pun intended).

Yelp’s data science team compared businesses from across the country, using a ranking that considered ratings and number of reviews, while also accounting for quality and popularity, to not only reveal what’s top rated but what’s most popular across the country.

Topping this year’s list with its mouth-watering classic deli sandwiches is TKB Bakery in Palm Springs. TKB Bakery made their Top 100 debut in 2015 but this year marks their first time taking top honors. Other returning favorites this year include Little Miss BBQ (no. 2 with its smokey ribs attracting rave reviews), Frattelino (no. 8 as a result of their tasty burrata), Tony’s Italian Delicatessen (no. 23) and JJ’s Caffe (no. 27 with delectable breakfast delights). Whether you’re looking for a place where you and your friends can stuff your faces with tacos or seeking a quick bite to eat, there’s something for every taste and budget on the list.

Methodology:
To determine Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Eat for 2018, we looked at the reviews received by businesses in the restaurant and food categories. We considered both the rating and the volume of the reviews.  Businesses must be primarily a restaurant or place to eat a meal to be included on the list. If a business with multiple locations appears more than once on the list, we keep the highest ranked location.
