|About our Star Rating System
Our star rating system rates the quality of food.
We feel there are 5-Star
Barbecue joints, which might be a dive as you would expect, but
the food is exceptional. Realize, that a 5-Star Barbecue
joint is only competing with a 5-Star Steakhouse on taste.
About our Business Traveler Rating System
In each of our cities, we try
to select between 100-750 listings for the categories of Power Lunch, Deal Closing
Dinners, Hot Spot Happy Hours, Out-of-Town Romance, Sports Bars,
Night Clubs and Local Diners. These restaurants ratings may be
of various stars, but the places are being recommend to
business travelers for the above categories.
*Our ratings are assigned
by the results of staff research, user surveys, suggestions, and
our field correspondents who report on the cities we list.
Please view our rating Disclaimer.

Zip Code Search
Most of our listing do not
include the 5 + 4 digit zip codes, so limit your zip code searches
to the first 5 digits.
A wildcard feature is available to list the first few digits of
the zip code to retrieve all listing in an area.
For instance typing in a "75", the first two digits of the zip code,
would return listings in the Dallas, Texas area. Entering a "76"
would return primarily Fort Worth , Texas listings.
To search the surrounding
suburbs within the main city type in the city or suburb name in
the search box.
For instance typing in Plano into the Dallas Search pages the
list only those listing with a Plano city name. Realize that
sometime companies will list the greater city name because it is
more recognizable than the suburb name, even though it
might be in Plano. For instance a Plano business listing its
address a Dallas.
In about 1/2 of the U.S. key cities we cover, we have broken
down restaurants into a location with in the city. Typically these
locations have boundaries not defined by a zip code, area codes,
or city constraints. Most cites for instance of a "Downtown"
location or and "Airport" location.
