5/5 stars

Tremendously handy!

No glitches. New places & old stand-bys. Hope they enable other search types. Worked brilliantly from first time.

5/5 stars

Really gives it straight.

It's true that some spots are out of business - but that's why you *call and check* before you go.
But the main thing is, this app gives accurate info - on quality of service, food...easy to tell if a place is to be avoided. What more can you hope for on an app like this?

3/5 stars

Works well, but reviews are worthless

The app's method of narrowing down an area is pretty cool even if there's IMO too many cuisine types. So many of the "reviews" are 4, 5, 6 years old - even lamer and more ancient than Yelp's and Citysearch's; millions of people are using these apps, hard to believe there's only ancient reviews out there...
