5 Tampa Bay Restaurants That Are The Best In Florida

We know there are a lot of great restaurants in the Tampa Bay area. Yelp just put together a list of the 100 best restaurants in all of Florida. Many Tampa Bay area restaurants made the list. Their list is based on their community’s ratings and reviews. Firstly, many of us use Yelp to help decide which restaurant we want to go to. We read reviews, so we can make the best choice for the restaurant of our choice.

There is always a trend in food and this year is no different. The Yelp list says, “Yelpers are craving (and raving about) Thai street food, beefy empanadas, spicy shakshuka, fiery chicken sandos, vegan BBQ, and other big flavors.” The top restaurant in Tampa is Rice & Spice, which is serves Pad Thai and Pad See Ew. Rice & Spice is located on Sheldon Rd.

One of the top restaurants in St. Pete is Uptown Eats. If you recall, that restaurant was listed as One of the Top 100 places to eat in America according to Yelp. What’s interesting is that same restaurant came in #36 of the list of best restaurants in Florida. Funny how it’s so high on the national list, but lower on the state list.

The #1 restaurant in Florida according to Yelp is called Pla-Tu Sushi, Thai, Tapas in South Miami.
