"Yelp’s Top 50 Places to Eat is a list unlike any other 'best of' out there, said Anne Faire, Senior Community Manager for Yelp.  Sure, you’ll see your obvious local favorites on the list, but it’s also chock full of hidden gems and off-the-beaten-path joints."


"We are so grateful to our customers for their support, and very proud of our employees who have worked so hard to make this dream a reality. It's amazing to see how the community has embraced our recipes, service, and location.  Our goal is to transport you, and for everyone to enjoy a great culinary experience every time they visit, said Giacomo Giovanetti, & Simone Vezalli, co-owners.

This year's list includes Michelin star restaurants to small kitchen's using family recipes.  To make the list, Yelp identified businesses in the restaurant category on its platform, then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews. "This is an all-time list of the Top Places to Eat in the North County San Diego area," according to Yelp.
