These Four Tennessee Restaurants Made Yelp’s Top 100 U.S. Restaurants for 2022


Yelp has released its 9th annual list of Top 100 Yelp Restaurants across the US. Out of the list of 100 restaurants, four Tennessee restaurants made the list: three in Nashville and one in Sevierville.

Topping this year’s best restaurants list is Cocina Madrigal (of Phoenix, Arizona) a Latinx father-and-son-owned eatery serving Oaxaca fundido and beef birria enchiladas.

Bill Miller, Founder, and CEO of Icon Entertainment Group, proudly owns and operates Skull’s Rainbow Room, said in a release, “It’s beyond gratifying to have one of Nashville‘s longest-standing and most-beloved venues selected as one of the top restaurants in the United States,” said Miller. “Since its original opening in 1948, Skull’s has become world-renowned for its ambiance, entertainment, food, cocktails, and incredibly hospitable environment.”

In creating the top 100 list, Yelp stated they created the list by first reaching out to Yelpers for their favorite dining spots. Then, they ranked each by a total number of submissions, ratings, reviews, and geographic representation, among other factors.

An interesting fact about the list – most of the restaurants are affordable where you can enjoy a meal under $30.
