It's happened to a lot of us, I know. You're in a new city and you're hungry but you don't know where or what to eat. You delay the decision, growing edgier by the second and maybe even a little dizzy. Finally, you give in and order McDonald's or Pizza Hut or any fast food joint you can eat anywhere in this world when a great local spot was right next door. But of course, you had no idea.
With LocalEats (opens in new tab), that scenario no longer exists. You're in a new city, you're hungry, you fire up LocalEats (opens in new tab) on your iPhone to find a great restaurant. You eat at said great restaurant. Don't be mistaken, this isn't a comprehensive food-review app like Yelp but rather a program that points you to the best restaurants when you need it most. To quote our own Dieter Bohn about LocalEats:
LocalEats (opens in new tab) uses a team of experts to find the best tasting restaurants in each locale. It's currently limited to 50 cities nationwide but there are plans for more. Click the Read Link to learn more about LocalEats or download the paid app HERE. (opens in new tab)

LOL. I was referring to its picks for Minneapolis / St. Paul -- the entire list of recommendations was pretty much every restaurant I miss from up there.
Hence the '[really]' f bomb. ;-)
I thought the results for NYC were pretty poor, both in quantity and quality. Oh well.
The "local" space is exciting and starting to really heat up. In the next few years I think we will have a definite winner or some great platforms. Let keep the ball rolling.

How does it compare to Munch?
LocalEats is great, but it does limit you to 50 cities in the US. Munch works pretty much anywhere. Here in Provo, UT, where I live, it found almost every mom-and-pop restaurant as well as all the major chains. I don't know, it's worth a look. Or should I say taste? Ouch, that was bad, wasn't it?
