While I cannot say these are the best places I have ever dined, some are quite good. Because every restaurant on the list has more than 6,000 reviews, it’s no surprise it mostly features big-city destinations over small-town spots. Los
Angeles had the most spots on the top-50 list by far, with eleven restaurants. San Diego, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New York and Chicago each had five. Hawaii had four.
Here is a brief list of some of my favorite low brow (reasonably priced and casual) places:
Portillo's (Chicago and Scottsdale)Los Sombreros (Scottsdale)Union Oyster House (Boston)Merry Mac's Tea Room (Hotlanta)Ruby Slipper (Nawlins)Versailles (Miami)Abalonetti's (Monterey)Morgan's Lobster Shack (Truckee)Cafe Pasqual (Santa Fe)Nittaya's Secret Kitchen (Las Vegas)Point Loma Seafood (San Diego)500 Club (Old Town Clovis)Ben's Chili Bowl (Washington, DC)Uwajimaya Food Court (Seattle)
