Possibly swayed by demographic of the site users. Will say that I have only really used yelp to get phone info and hours of operation. Never given a review.

Heavy on BBQ and delis, short on refinement. That's what happens when you allow the hoi-polloi to vote.

Best sushi I've ever had and it's not even close.

This has got to be a joke. The guy literally cooks zatarains from the box.

These two and Franklin BBQ are the only ones I've eaten at.

There is a gas station down the road from where I grew up that has better food than 75% of those places. Guaranteed.

Number 7 in Chicago only has a prix fixe menu--$210.

Probably the most pretentious menu I've ever seen.

Crappy list..Gus's Chicken in Memphis can't even come close to Uncle Lou's in Memphis.

Gus's Fried Chicken at #80 is surprising. One of my favorite places though.

I have only been to Gary Danko, #9 on the list. It was top notch but a lot of this list looks suspect.

80% of the places are on the west coast or they are in Austin and NYC.

List is not legit

86. Little Deli & Pizzeria, Austin, TX


This goes to show you that people base their decisions on the idea of a place, and not the food.

Franklins is pretty good, but within a 2-hour radius of Austin, there is much better bbq.

Turf n Surf is one of the worst poboys I have ever had.



Not only does the bread suck, but their fried fish is horribly under seasoned. Not to mention that they try to be fancy by using a field green mix, and that it just doesn't work.

Little Deli is a quaint joint in the Crestview neighborhood. However, neither the pizza nor the sandwiches are the best in the area. But once again, yelpers fall in love with the idea of a place, not the food.

Based on my experience with the Austin locations, I would not put much stock in this list.
