The 100 Best Places to Eat in America [According to Yelp]

created at: 02/25/2016

Most men I know are pretty committed Yelp users. If you're checking out a new place without recommendations from friends, or in a new town or neighborhood, or have a craving you just gotta satisfy, it's an ever-reliable resource of aggregated information to help you decide. I've even used it for things like finding a good local dentist...

But now Yelp has put together their list of places that every man must try in their lifetime based on the community of opinionated commentators for the 100 Top Places to Eat in America. Here are the top ten:

1. Porto’s Bakery & Cafe (Burbank, CA)

2. Cheese Board Pizza (Berkeley, CA)

3. Paseo (Seattle, WA)

4. Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que (Kansas City, KS)

5. TKB Bakery & Deli (Indio, CA) 

6. Gary Danko (San Francisco, CA)

7. The Morrison (Los Angeles, CA)

8. Mama D’s Italian Kitchen (Newport Beach, CA) 

9. Franklin Barbecue (Austin, TX)

10. Marukame Udon (Honolulu, TX)

I think Oklahoma Joe's changed it's name to Joe's Kansas City a little while back, but it's the same place. There are a few of them in KC, the one I went to wasn't exactly in a gas station, but it was sort of convenience-store/garage-ish.

@Bruno - Is that Okalahoma Joe's? The one inside the gas station?

This list is indeed curious. Those that are in my city are well respected, but not even in the top 20 places I'd recommend to friends or out-of-towners.

Hmm.. I've eaten at Joe's Kansas City BBQ and I have to say: overrated. It was not, by far, among my top eating experiences of all time. It wasn't even the most amazing BBQ I've ever had.
