Yelp Top 100 Places to Eat: San Diego Region

Yelp’s Top 100 List for 2015 is here, revealing the hottest 100 places to grab a bite throughout the far reaches of the San Diego region.

Yelp’s data team took a look at the thousands of rich, local reviews on Yelp in San Diego County neighborhoods from the South Border to Temecula and ranked businesses that fall under the “Restaurant" category based on number of reviews and overall business star ratings.

Clearly beloved by San Diego residents, the majority of the findings were for neighborhood, one-off, family-owned small businesses. From downtown to the ‘burbs, there’s something for everyone everywhere on this list! How many of these hidden gems have you tried?
