SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Six San Diego County restaurants are among Yelp’s “ Top 100 Places to Eat in the U.S. ” for 2019.
Yelp compiled customer reviews and ratings in 2018 to determine its Top 100, with company officials saying, “We considered both the rating and the volume of the reviews, while accounting for the overall volume of reviews in each business’s area so as not to disadvantage businesses in areas with relatively low review volume.”
The six local eateries on the list (and where they rank on the Top 100):
29. Chuy’s Taco Shop
6663 El Cajon Blvd., Ste G, San Diego
-- Many of the Yelp reviewers loved this Mexican food spot’s huge portions and great prices.
72. Bud & Rob’s New Orleans Bistro
815 F St., San Diego
-- Craving something Cajun or Creole? This place serves up dishes such as gumbo, jambalaya and crawfish etouffee.
94. Empanada Kitchen
819 C St., San Diego
-- Many San Diegans love this spot that specializes in those hand-held pockets of goodness known as empanadas. Oh, and they deliver too.
