What is Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Eat list? How is it different this year?

Yelp’s annual Top 100 Places to Eat list covers a wide range of places to eat -- from white tablecloth to food trucks and hot dog carts. It’s more accessible than a list of all fine dining establishments and really reflects the uniqueness of the Yelp community.

The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the restaurant industry in unprecedented ways and the long-term impact is still yet to be seen. While we are beginning to return to normal, to dining out with friends and loved ones, we recognize we’re not there yet. This year, we encourage our community to submit their favorite restaurants, food trucks and eateries to help us celebrate the resilience of the restaurant industry as it begins to rebuild itself.

We want to know which restaurants you can’t wait to return to again with friends or loved ones, your treasured breakfast spots and your favorite spots to grab a quick bite. It can be a beloved family-friendly restaurant, a longtime favorite that brought you comfort over the past year, your new go-to food truck, or a local gem you’ve discovered in your neighborhood this year.

All restaurant nominations must have a Yelp business page. If you’re a restaurant owner, download our Top 100 Business Owner kit here.

How will you determine this year’s list?

To determine Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Eat in 2022, Yelp’s data science team will start by using the data generated from our community submissions.
