This mobile version of LocalEats.com quells your indecisiveness and points you in the direction of the highest-rated eateries in your area. Editors at LocalEats take into consideration ratings from magazines, newspapers, dining sites and personal experiences before adding an establishment to their list. That means restaurants have to make the cut to score a recommendation from LocalEats. The editors do the grunt work—the research you don’t have time to do.

To start, tap Nearby. By the time the page loads and you finish reading the witty food-related quote, you have a list of the best restaurants within a frog’s leap of your GPS location. Some are flagged “Top 100,” deeming them the city’s tastiest destinations.

LocalEats allows you to customize your search radius and find restaurants close to particular addresses, cities or landmarks. You can filter the results by Top 100, Cuisine, Price Range, Hours, Patio Seating and so on.

We all know the national chains, and we’ve had enough of them. That’s precisely why we think the best part about this app is that it only features local, independently owned restaurants. You can save your favorites and share them with friends.

If you’re traveling to someplace unfamiliar, this food app is a must-have. The only con: Coverage outside of large metropolitan areas may be limited.
