Ten Texas restaurants are on Yelp's fourth annual list of Top 100 Places to Eat — and they may surprise you.
The rankings were determined by the number of positive reviews from Yelp users around the country, and this year the website narrowed in on the most recent ratings, which allowed a new crop of restaurants to rise to the top.
"On our past top 100 lists, you would be likely to find some of those 'famous' restaurants with thousands of reviews, over many years, holding steady at 4.5 stars. This year, those places were crowded out by other businesses that performed spectacularly in the last year. This list is proof that you can find truly amazing food and service just about anywhere," says Yelp.
At the very top of the list is Tony's Italian Delicatessen in Montgomery, Texas, which is the No. 1 place to eat in America. It boasts a mom-and-pop feel and "the best dang deli menu you will find anywhere," writes one Yelp user.
Boteco and BackDraft Pizzeria in Austin; Tommy Tamale Market & Cafe in Grapevine (No. 21); The House of Gyros in Mesquite (No. 49); Irie's Island Food in Port Aransas (No. 53); and Le Pam's House of Creole (No. 60), Yoyo's Hot Dog (No. 83), and Las Tortas Perronas (No. 89) in Houston also make the cut.
