Bruxie Is Yelp's No. 2 Restaurant of 2011 . . . for the Whole Country

We take a certain amount of homegrown pride to let you know Orange County's very own Bruxie took the No. 2 spot in Yelp's Most Popular U.S. Restaurants for 2011. Congratulations, Bruxie!

Well, Yelpers, Stick a Fork In It broke the news about Bruxie's real-deal Wisconsin frozen custard, and our readers probably learned about the waffle sandwiches before they heard about it on Yelp. Plus, we were first to report other important Bruxie news, such as the announcement of its second location. So you'll excuse us if we feel a territorial attachment to "our" Bruxie.

We can't claim any credit for Bruxie's success, as its universal appeal is as obvious as Jennifer Aniston's recent naming as Men's Health's Hottest Woman of All Time. Some schmuck out there was Jen Aniston's first boyfriend, and in Bruxie's case, that schmuck is us.

How did Yelp arrive at its Top 10 list? "Rank was determined by how many people in the Yelp community have bookmarked the business in 2011, as well as combined with average star rating, total review count and total check-ins."

  1. Bottega Louie, Los Angeles
  2. Bruxie, Orange County
  3. Ippudo NY, New York
  4. Wurstküche, Los Angeles
  5. Bi-Rite Creamery, San Francisco
  6. Daikokuya, Los Angeles
  7. Phil's BBQ, San Diego
  8. Ike's Place, San Francisco
  9. Griddle Cafe, Los Angeles
  10. Animal, Los Angeles

So overrated, the waffles are bland , ordered the burger wished it was on a bun!

Glad to see a local business get that kind of attention, but I just don't see anything amazing about Bruxie. The waffles are very subpar, and the price point is actually pretty high for the portion size.

I'm pleased to see CA hits 9 out of 10. Suck is the rest of the US! You too, Jennifer! No, really!

The only thing Jennifer Aniston and Bruxie have in common is that their inclusion and placement on said lists are unintentionally hilarious. Even Jennifer Aniston's schmuck first boyfriend would tell you "Hottest of all time? Naw...she wasn't that hot, dude."

Seriously guys, "we were first, we were first!"  Way to be the coolest hipster or do you now not go to Bruxie because too many people like it?

That Yelp list seems off though, considering the size and density of the population and fine eateries in NY, how do they only have 1 on the list?

I've met Jennifer Aniston in person. She IS that hot. She might not be your type, but she's still insanely hot to lots of others. Same for Bruxie.

Did you read her post? Pretty concerned with making it apparent that you guys were allegedly "first" to say anything about Bruxie....
