LocalEats® for Android guides discerning diners to the best independently owned restaurants across America and select international cities. From storied steak houses and the nation’s hottest contemporary restaurants to revered roadside diners, barbecue joints and burger bars, LocalEats selects only the best local restaurants. Users can search restaurants by city Top 100 lists as well as category winners, all sortable by price, neighborhood or type of cuisine. The “nearby” feature utilizes GPS mapping to identify great local restaurants near the user’s precise location.
All selections are made by the LocalEats editorial staff, who research local media and relevant dining blogs, monitor social media, survey food-savvy locals and travelers, and take into account their personal dining experiences. There are no national chains listed, and restaurants cannot pay for inclusion.
