yelps best restaurants cat1

Our only resolution for 2022? Support local businesses and eat good in the neighborhood. So when Yelp released its list of the top 100 places to eat in the U.S., we knew we had to share.

Featuring a variety of cuisines like Japanese, Honduran and Afghan, the crowd-sourcing website first reached out to its diverse community, asking users to nominate restaurants that they can't wait to return to in 2022. After reviewing each restaurant's ratings, number of reviews and volume of submissions, this epic list was born. Aside from discovering a number of new spots we'll happily road trip for, we especially love that nearly all of the top eateries offer affordable options where you can enjoy a unique meal for $30 or less (talk about bang for your buck).

So, without further ado, here are Yelp's top 100 restaurants of 2022.
