Each year, Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Eat recognizes the local restaurants across the U.S. and Canada that truly reflect the unique tastes of the Yelp community. From juicy birria at local taquerias to Hawaiian-Korean favorites like last year’s #1 Broken Mouth, we love hearing about your favorite local restaurants and giving them the recognition they deserve. That’s why for this year’s Top 100 Places to Eat, we are again turning to you, the Yelp community, for nominations!
We want to know which restaurants are your tried-and-true staples, new favorites and everything in between. It can be a new food truck, a trendy brunch spot, a local hidden gem or your go-to pizza place. If you love it, we want to hear about it!
What is Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Eat list? How is it different this year?
Yelp’s annual Top 100 Places to Eat list covers a wide range of places to eat -- from white tablecloth to food trucks and hot dog carts. It’s more accessible than a list of all fine dining establishments and really reflects the uniqueness of the Yelp community. We encourage our community to submit their favorite restaurants, food trucks and eateries to help us celebrate the restaurant industry.
All restaurant nominations must have a Yelp business page. If you’re a restaurant owner, download our Top 100 Business Owner kit here.
How will Yelp determine this year’s list?
To determine Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Eat in 2024, Yelp’s data science team will start by using the data generated from our community submissions. From the candidate restaurants, we will narrow the list down with the expertise of our community managers and Trend Expert to curate a list as quirky, interesting and unique as the Yelp Community itself.
Describe the nominations process.
Nominations will open to the entire Yelp community on Monday, October 16th at YelpTop100.com. The nominations period will close on Sunday, October 29th. All restaurant nominations must have a Yelp business page.
The final list will be announced early next year - stay tuned!

Does the methodology differ by country?
