The 100 Best Places to Dine in America, According to Yelp


Yelp, the company that connects people to great local businesses, today announced its 10th annual Top 100 Places to Eat list, celebrating must-visit restaurants in communities across the United States.

Each year, Yelp analyzes the millions of reviews on its platform and considers user suggestions to list the best local eateries, including food trucks, cafes, and delis.

Topping this year’s list is Broken Mouth in Los Angeles. With a 5-star Yelp rating and more than 1,300 reviews, the Hawaiian-Korean café serves comfort food dishes such as spam musubi, a seaweed-wrapped spam dish on purple rice, and meat jun, a traditional fried beef dish. Broken Mouth’s location in a downtown dining hall makes this local favorite a hidden gem.

Broken Mouth’s top spot is also part of a larger island kitchen trend that features prominently on this list. For the first time, island cuisine leads the top five on the list, with Kaaloa’s Super Js Authentic Hawaiian Food in second place and Adela’s Country Eatery in Oahu in number five.

“From food trucks and sandwich shops to gourmet restaurants, the Top 100 list reflects the diverse tastes and uniqueness of our community of users,” said Tara Lewis, Yelp Trend Expert. “It’s powered by the people, not a small group of restaurant critics, and we look forward to consumers continuing to share their dining experiences in their reviews.”

To determine Yelp’s best places to eat in 2023, Yelp first reached out to its user community and asked individuals to submit their favorite restaurants. Yelp’s data science team analyzed community submissions and determined the top restaurants based on ratings, number of reviews, and number of submissions, with geographic representation based on an equal share of submissions from top-rated restaurants nationally. Yelp further compiled the list with the expertise of community managers across the country to round out the rankings. And here they are:
