The Top Restaurants In Minnesota According To Yelp May Surprise You
A lot of people use Yelp to help decide where they want to eat, or at least people are familiar with the website. Yelp has released its "Top 100 Places To Eat", let's find out which Minnesota places made the list.
Yelp was founded back in 2004 and was designed to be a one-stop shop for people to check out local businesses, see reviews, make a reservation, or even request a quote.
The demographics of people that use the website or app range from ages 18 - 55+. 39% of people that use are 55 or older, which is the most out of the age ranges. Out of every business, category searched for on Yelp, restaurants come in second with 17%.
This also marks the 10th anniversary of "Yelp's Top 100 Places To Eat". The list is all based on user ratings. Before we dive into restaurants from the Land of 10,000 Lakes, let's see what kind of places rounded out the top 10 in the entire United States:
- Broken Mouth in Los Angeles, CA
- Kaaloa’s Super Js Authentic Hawaiian in Captain Cook, HI
- Archibalds village bakery in Fort Lauderdale, FL
- Beyer Deli in San Diego, CA
- Adela’s Country Eatery in Kaneohe, HI
- Sunbliss Café in Anaheim, CA
- The Nook Cajun Café in Norco, CA
- Tumerico in Tucson, AZ
- Selam Ethiopian and Eritrean Cuisine in Orlando, FL
- Sababa Falafel Shop in Garden Grove, CA
A lot of different kinds of food ranging from all over. Apparently, if you're looking for some highly-rated food, it's time for a California trip. Or, That's just where many Yelp users reside. I have actually been to one of the top-rated restaurants on the list. When I went to Disneyland in Anaheim years ago, we stopped at the Sunbliss Café which was pretty tasty.
Which Minnesota restaurants made the top 100?
I bet you're wondering which Minnesota places cracked in the top 100 according to Yelp reviews. It may shock you, that not one single restaurant made the list. Also, no Wisconsin restaurant made the list either.
