Yelp, the company that connects people with 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 identify the best local restaurants, including food trucks, coffee shops, and delis.

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

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

“From food trucks and sandwich shops to upscale restaurants, the Top 100 list reflects the diverse tastes and uniqueness of our user community,” said Tara Lewis, trends expert at Yelp. “It’s driven by the people, not a small group of food critics, and we look forward to consumers continuing to share their culinary experiences in their reviews.”

To determine Yelp’s top restaurants in 2023, Yelp first reached out to the user community and asked individuals to submit their favorite restaurants. Yelp’s data science team analyzed submissions from the community and determined the top restaurants based on ratings, number of reviews, and volume of submissions, with geographic representation based on an equal proportion of submissions from the top-rated restaurants nationally . Yelp curated the list with the expertise of community managers across the country to complete the ranking. And here they are:
