3 Phoenix Restaurants Make Yelp's Top 100 for 2018

You won't leave Phoenix's Little Miss BBQ hungry — if you get in before they run out of food, that is. | Via Facebook

A wildly popular Phoenix barbecue joint was named the second-best place to eat in America in a new Yelp ranking, and two other Valley of the Sun restaurants made the top-100 list as well.

Little Miss BBQ, at 4301 E. University Drive, has become a mainstay of Yelp's annual Top 100 Places to Eat list — it's been ranked in the top 15 on four consecutive versions, although No. 2 is its highest ranking so far.

The honor is no surprise to those who have visited or even driven past Little Miss BBQ around lunchtime. The line usually is out the door, and Yelpers rave about the ribs and the brisket. The restaurant currently has a perfect five-star average on its Yelp reviews, which is impressive given that more than 1,500 people have reviewed it. A second location is expected to open this year.

The two other area restaurants making the list were Mesa's Green Corner Restaurant, which specializes in Mediterranean fare, at No. 85, and Phoenix's TEN Handcrafted American Fare & Spirits, which rounded out the list at No. 100.

You also don't have to go far from Arizona to experience the top entry on the list: TKB Bakery & Deli in Indio, California.

Yelp says its "data science team" compiled the rankings based on each restaurant's star rating, number of reviews and other factors.
