2 Las Vegas restaurants named to Yelp Top 100 for 2023

Updated January 25, 2023 - 4:15 pm

Two Las Vegas restaurants have been named by Yelp to the Top 100 Places to Eat in the U.S. for 2023. On Wednesday, the online review platform announced the annual Top 100, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. The list ranges from food trucks to fine dining.

Zenaida’s Cafe, a breakfast, lunch and brunch place serving American comfort food on East Tropicana Avenue, comes in at No. 24. Zenaida’s averaged 4.5 stars out of 5 across more than 950 Yelp reviews.

The Bao Spot on South Rainbow Boulevard, featuring creative bao, vegetable-protein bowls, boba, desserts and other dishes, ranks at No. 60. The restaurant, which opened last fall, garnered 4.5 stars across nearly 200 reviews.

Zenaida’s and The Bao Spot make their first appearances on the list in 2023.

In the past decade, Las Vegas has had 30-plus restaurants named among the Top 100, more than any other American city, according to Yelp. Los Angeles and San Diego were runners-up, with 28 spots each making the list since the Top 100 debuted in 2014.

Broken Mouth, a restaurant serving Hawaiian-Korean food in a downtown Los Angeles food hall, topped the 2023 rankings. Two other places offering island food joined Broken Mouth among the top five.

To determine the Top 100, Yelp users submitted their favorite U.S. restaurants, then the platform analyzed these picks to rank restaurants by ratings, number of reviews and volume of submissions. Geography, and input from Yelp community managers, were taken into account to create the final list, which may be viewed here.
