Ranking Arizona: Top 10 resorts for 2023

Every year, Yelp analyzes millions of reviews and suggestions from its community of users to name the best local eateries for its Top 100 Places to Eat list — from hidden gems in strip malls to upscale dining establishments and everything in between. One this year’s 11th anniversary of the Top 100 Places to Eat, Arizona was home to eight restaurants on the list between Tucson and Phoenix.
