The 3 Best Apps for Finding Restaurants While On The Go

The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

If you travel for business a lot, you know that one of the most difficult things to do is find a good restaurant. You need a place that's fast, offers good food, is affordable and is right in the vicinity of your meeting or your hotel. If you're looking for lunch, it's likely that you don't have time to spare -- and if you're looking for dinner, you may need to impress a client. For those situations, an app is usually the best bet.


Urbanspoon lets you select food venues based on type of food, price and proximity to you. It is a little less controversial than Yelp because it isn't as review driven -- while there are reviews, they don't tend to be as polarizing. Urbanspoon can direct you to the restaurant quickly and includes all the basic information such as prices and operating hours.


Zagat's restaurant survey is still the best way to find high quality food -- and since Google acquired Zagat recently, Google's directory searches will also link you to Zagat's reviews. While the Zagat app may not be as feature rich as the top contenders, Urban Spoon and Yelp, it is more focused on quality rather than quantity and the reviews are experienced.


Do you want the full experience of the local flavor wherever you are? LocalEats only lists locally owned restaurants rather than chain restaurants, allowing you to select from the places that the locals truly dine at. Whether you're looking to impress or you simply want to try something new, this slick and easy to use app will direct you to a place that you have never been before.

Of course, you should never trust only an app for a recommendation -- especially if it's an important client meeting. Few things can put someone in as bad a mood as a poor dining experience. For those situations, always make sure that you look up the relevant reviews so that you don't get caught unaware.
