5 Restaurant Apps for Serious Foodies


2
LocalEats

Price: 99 cents

Device: Android, iPhone, BlackBerry Storm, or on their mobile-optimized site

What makes LocalEats perfect for your inner foodie, is that there's a strict "no chain restaurant" policy. True foodies wouldn't be caught dead at an Applebee's, and with this app, there's no need to sort through a list of big chains to find real local eateries.

Like Foodspotting, LocalEats is more visual than some of the other restaurant apps out there. There's a photo of each restaurant mentioned. And you can check out user reviews, or take a peek at their "Top 100" list to see what the LocalEats editors say are the best restaurants in town.

If you're in one of the 50 major cities that it covers, this app is a handy tool for tracking down those local favorites.

But let's go one step further beyond local food to street food. If you're a fan, we've got just the app for you.
