Austin S says the tacos at Kiss Pollos Estilo Sinaloa, Phoenix AZ are "absolutely killer and my dad won't shut up about them." Go on, Austin's dad. We're listening.

Tortas Y Tacos La Chiquita in Arlington, VA has chorizo tacos that are "amazing, but the carnitas will change your life. It melts in your mouth!" according to Austin G (yes, another Austin).

Thao N "tried seven out of the 12 taco meat choices" at Don Pancho Villa, Tampa, in FL. Her favorite? "The cabeza... so tender, juicy!" We can't wait to hear about the other five, too.

Yelp Services

I have had the pleasure of using Yelp for a very longtime now, mostly for dining, and or restaurant suggestions or reviews prior to dining. I am now finding that I have started looking for help and suggestion or reviews for many other services as of late. One small challenge when trying to find this information, is there needs to be a specific heading for Odd, or Miscellaneous Services, unless I just missed it. I had no problem finding plumbing, or electricians, and this sort of thing, but spent sometime trying to find niche services, such as Solar removal, as opposed to Solar Installation. Again I suppose this is not exactly what Yelp originally specializes in, but I believe I’m not the only one checking your site for this sort of help, thanks sincerely Vinnie S
P.S. Job well done too ... thanks

Helpful but spam-y

This is my current go-to app for looking up reviews. Although since it’s pretty much all user-generated content, I take it with a grain of salt. Sometimes it’s a mixed bag, but usually the ratings align with my opinion. Between the reviews and user photos, it’s super helpful when deciding where to take my business.

There’s a few annoyances though. Got one, I get unsolicited spam notifications. Even though my app settings unchecked all notification options except the ones actually useful (waitlist updates, etc.), I still get spam notifications like “check out one of this week’s top restaurants.” Turning off notifications all together makes the app lose important functionality.

And I don’t love how much data Yelp uses to track me, especially the precise location tracking. I would expect Yelp would use precise location only to help users discover and find business locations in the app, but it seems it’s also used for tracking users. Unfortunately, if I turn off location services, Yelp makes the main page of the app lose a bunch of content. Too bad they don’t let users just select the city they live in to see recommendations.
