You gave a 5-Star rating to a fast-food place AND a fine-dining place! Are you saying they’re the same? What’s wrong with you!?!

Read the Ratings and Standards section of this website.

ALL restaurants on are rated using the same 1-5 star scale. We rate everything from McDonald's to Ruth's Chris. So the ratings are not simply a comparison of one place to another. If a fast-food place does a good job with your crispy chicken sandwich, they might get 5 stars for doing what is expected of them. And the fine-dining place, if it earns it, will perhaps get the same rating for the same reason.

It doesn't mean that the restaurants are the same. It simply means that each did what they set out to do and that each gave you your money's worth.

What would you like to do?
