Orange County Lands 46 Spots in Yelp's Top 100 Places to Eat

Afters Ice Cream's Milky Bun, not one the list... yet.

So, a few days ago Yelp released their list of the top 100 places to eat. Somewhat surprisingly (not because we're not amazing, but because people don't pay attention), Orange County landed four spots of the 100.

What won it for us? Mexican food, Italian ice, Mama D's, and.. Dole Whip.

In order..

Cream Pan in Tustin ranked highest at 31st.

Frostbites Crepes and Frozen Delights in Cypress placed 51st, mostly due to their Italian ice-custard combo.

Sabroso! Mexican Grill in Garden Grove landed 61st.

Disneyland's Tiki Juice Bar ended up 65th because of Dole Whip.

Mama D's finished 68th, probably due to the almost creepy levels of good service you get there.

And finally, Mattern Sausage and Deli in Orange at 74.

Now, there are some problems with this list. For one, there's only one pho place, it shows up in the 70s, and it's in Denver (Seriously, Denver).For two, I can get Dole Whip at Strikland's. And for three, Yelpers -- especially the hardcore ones -- are kind of really weird.

But hey, I'm not one to begrudge someone's success, so congratulations, guys!

And watch out for our top 100 list, coming later this year!

Article image from Afters and it isn't even on the list? Too much push for Afters...too much hype...I'm now starting to believe it is a marketing gimmick and not actually amazing like you have said in your last several posts. Fail.

So much to do and eat and so little time and space in my tummy. What is a girl to do... I love living in the OC.

No SoCal Pho? WTPho!?

At least they got Mattern - One of the truly GREAT things about OC.

Dole whip!!! It is the best thing ever! In the 90s, when we had the So Cal $99 pass, we would drive out to Anaheim from Long Beach just to see the fireworks, go on Pirates and have a Dole Whip float- heaven!

Uh, why did you skip Cream Pan in Tustin? It's highest on the list, at #31.


Also forgotten: Mattern Sausage and Deli in Orange, at #74.

if you go by yelp reviews you are basically going by what a twenty something Asian chick thinks, they make up the majority of people posting reviews.
