Great App Great Vision

The functionality of the app is top notch and the vision behind the app is mature and necessary.

This app allows users to find restaurants and other places of businesses that provide specific ethnic experiences and offerings to people looking for something local and authentic. There is no need to search keywords, look through pictures trying to find yourself or to drive around aimlessly looking for a spot, this app has it and it’s a time saver.

10/10 would recommend!!

I Want It To Be Great, But It’s Horrid

I love the the concept with the heat of a thousand suns, but the execution looks terrible. Why did I have a Florida joint when I am in Los Angeles? That doesn’t make sense, especially when it came in the Los Angeles search.

The reviews seem suspect. For instance, Hot and Cool had a 3.1 okras rating even though the sole written review rated it 5 okras. Why not include a feature letting users know who gave what rating, even if they elect not to write a review?

The interface looks ugly and not terribly polished, yet one gets ads begging for money every few seconds. Google funding this poorly designed app reeks of tech bro nobles oblige. Let’s give “those” people some coins so that we can continue not to hire the talented ones and look kewl and with the times, it doesn’t matter if the “those people “ lack talent. MLK Jr. did not die for this. SMH. And shame on Apple for featuring this really bad app on Juneteenth!

Great for black owned businesses

I was very excited to see that they had an app for black owned businesses. I like to go out to eat a lot especially since it’s summer now. But I feel like the app doesn’t give enough options to filter. Like if I want a restaurant that is a dine in location. I can’t tell what type of restaurant it is unless I actually search the restaurant to find out more info. Sometimes when you click on something it doesn’t open. I don’t understand what some of the icons mean when there orange. There doesn’t seem to be any ratings or reviews for the restaurants for me to no if it’s worth my time. I know that the app will be updated soon and I hope that it’s better because I want to support our people.

Developer Response ,

Hi, Thank you for taking the time write this review. Our new app version was approved so you should be able to update. I hope it provides a better experience for you. We are working on ways to make the information clearer and provide more filtering options. Please leave us feedback as we are always looking to satisfy our app users and bring more customers to our business owners. We now have ratings and reviews so it will take some time for people to start documenting their experiences, but we have always had a rating system. Your the first to ask about filtering by dining type, i will make sure it gets added to our development roadmap. Currently you can filter by delivery. ~ Anthony, CEO, Co-Founder
