The summer’s most talked about restaurants: Las Vegas

Welcome back to our series on most talked about eateries! We’re closing out the summer with a mini-series on the most popular restaurants in major U.S. cities, as measured by how many people post online reviews about them. You can read our quick primer about the series here. As a recap:

  • Consumers overwhelmingly use online reviews to decide which restaurants they’ll patronize
  • They mostly care about recent reviews
  • Restaurants with lots of reviews tend to have positive ratings and attract more customers

We analyzed millions of online reviews during June and July to make our list. The top restaurants are the ones that were talked about the most on Yelp, Google, TripAdvisor, and other business review sites during the first two months of summer. (So, “recent reviews” means in June and July of this year.)
