Better than flipping a coin
Awesome app! I LOVE the “Add My Own Restaurant” feature. It would be ideal if that list can be saved though, so I don’t have to re-enter them each time. The reality is that the family has their favorites and those are the places we want to in the roulette pool.

Thanks for your review! We really appreciate the feature suggestion. Thanks to your feedback we added a feature in version 1.8 that lets you create saved lists of restaurants and use them in the roulette spinner. Our next update or two will allow you to add these lists or individual restaurants to your search results & roulette spin. Let us know what you think!
I wanted to try and discover one new place to eat, and somehow in a 20 mile radius where there’s at least 200 restaurants it gives me 22 results. None of which are a single place I’ve heard of. Why are the normal chains not popping up in this too? Out of the normal 15-20 places we frequent (Texas Roadhouse, Olive Garden, tucanos, Denny’s, ihop, Buffalo Wild Wings, red Robin) none of them appeared in the search even though they should. I expected to see all of those normal results PLUS new discoveries. Instead you suggested coffee shacks and hole in the walls, with nothing else included. If I wanted to make a list of all the restaurants in the area myself I could do that without this app. I don’t usually leave reviews but just to save you the download, this app is weak af.

Thank you for your review FavaronJ. We use Yelp to search for restaurants and it’s historically given pretty good results. Could you let us know where you were searching so we can take a look at the problem? Just send an email to email@example.com. It’s also possible that you had the “open now” switch turned on & did your search outside normal business hours, which is why a lot of the expected restaurants wouldn’t show up. The food category filters may also have filtered out the restaurants - sometimes Yelp can be a little funny that way. Thanks again for the feedback!
Does not show all the restaurants
Confused why many restaurants don’t show up.

Thanks for your review! The app uses Yelp's search system to find restaurants, so we unfortunately don't have a lot of control over what search results they give back. We've seen a few things play into the results:
1. There is a 50 result limit, so we definitely don't get back every restaurant in the area.
2. Yelp sends back the highest rated places first - so the top 50 rated places are the only ones you'll receive.
3. Restaurants aren't always indexed under the right price/food type/open hours.
To compensate for these, we've added the feature to search & add your own restaurants to the list just in case they don't show up in search. Hope this helps!
