I thought this article was sort of interesting.
Yelp has a list of the best places to eat in America and topping the list is a San Diego food truck.
I saw the LAT story first then clicked over to the link to Yelp.
A Los Angeles spot ranks second: Pisces Poke & Ramen – Los Angeles, CA (What to order? The Truffle Salmon)
Burgerama in Valley Village is in the top five (What to order? The Country Boy Burger)
For what it’s worth, Yelp says the reason mom and pop places rank so high is that their reviewers like the personal, familial way they treat their customers.
I do realize that Yelp doesn’t carry much wait here – I don’t think it does, anyway. But IMO, everyone ends up on Yelp every once in a while even if they’re just trying to figure out what’s close to where they happen to be at the moment. Anyway, I thought it was interesting and worth sharing, without necessarily endorsing the reviews.
