    I do love Yelp, even with reviews that are immature and yes, even with ones that are biased or fake. If you’re on there long enough, those become easy to spot anyway. And it’s a great tool. It has led me to some truly incredible food I may otherwise never have known about. I recommend it to everyone who will listen.
