One of the most popular websites for restaurant reviews is Yelp! With thousands of user-submitted reviews of restaurants in major cities all over the U.S., Yelp has become an authority for diners who want the inside scoop on hot new eateries.
Recently, the site published a list of their Top 100 Places to Eat in 2014. Of the 100 restaurants named, two of them are located right here in Phoenix!
Coming in at #81 we have the Short Leash Hot Dogs Food Truck in downtown Phoenix. This gourmet food truck is owned by a husband and wife team and can often be found at local events such as Food Truck Fridays.
Also on the list at #97 is Postino Wine Cafe in the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix. Their artisanal fare caters to the hip neighborhoods in which their 3 valley locations can be found.
Congratulations to these local Phoenix businesses on being mentioned in the Yelp Top 100 of 2014!
You can jump over to the Yelp Blog for the full list of restaurants featured this year. One thing I noticed is that a whopping 47 out of 100 restaurants on their list are located in California! There is definitely a West-coast bias among Yelpers; which I find interesting when you consider that 56% of the U.S. population lives on the East Coast.
