According to the Yelp representative, they looked at the reviews received by three and four dollar sign businesses in the restaurant and food categories in order to rank the top 100 places worth splurging on a meal out.
Both the rating and the volume of the reviews, as well as the overall volume of reviews in each business’s area, was taken into consideration for the ranking “so as not to disadvantage businesses in areas with relatively low review volume.”
