Orange County in Yelp’s Top 100 places to eat list

On Tuesday, Jan. 7, Yelp released its 2020 list of top 100 places to eat.

Did Orange County appear anywhere on the list? (We get overlooked, and northwest Orange County often gets overlooked.)

The answer: yes, Orange County made it onto the list:

  • The Fuel Shack – San Clemente, CA

That’s it. One place, and it’s in southern Orange County.

We should be happy that all our good local restaurants aren’t overrun with Yelpers, I guess.

I’m talking about restaurants like The Anaheim White House, Park Avenue in Stanton, Amor y Tacos in La Palma, Shenandoah and Maderas and Brew Kitchen Alehouse in Los Alamitos, Spaghettini and Kobe at Old Ranch Parkway, and most of the restaurants along Main Street in Old Town Seal Beach. If you’re a Yelper, think about giving them some Yelpish love if you sant to see more northwest Orange County restaurants on the 2021 list.

That’s Yelp’s suggested remedy:

Did we miss one of your must-try restaurants? Share your thoughts on the list on social media using #YelpTop100 and tell us what you think. Remember, we only know how good a spot is if people take the time to review it, so share your thoughts on Yelp, and maybe your favorites will be on next year’s list!

Or we can go on enjoying our local restaurants without Yelping crowds…
