At the request of our customers, we have been gathering nationwide rich data on restaurants. We now have a database of close to 1 million businesses in the food & dining vertical with rich details including but not limited to menus, special features, descriptions and user reviews. The data was gathered from over 70 local and vertical sites.Compiling a nationwide analysis of user reviews of restaurants, we took the total number of restaurants we found in each state and checked how many of them have at least one user review on at least one site.
The map below shows what percentage of restaurants, in each state, has one or more user reviews on at least one site.
