We've done a fun feature at some Patch site's around the Los Angeles area where we take a look at Yelp's list of "Best Restaurants" for a city and ask readers what they think of the list. Here's an example.
We wanted to do the same for San Marino today, but encountered a problem. When you plug in "San Marino" on Yelp and get a list of their highest star rankings for San Marino, every "Best Restaurant" for the city is in Pasadena.
Now the list is for restaurants "near" San Marino, and with the cities located right next door to each other it seems logical that this could happen, as San Marino is a small town compared to Pasadena. However, a similar search for best restaurants in Sierra Madre on Yelp turns up all Sierra Madre restaurants. Sierra Madre is also a small town bordering Pasadena.
San Marino does have plenty of its own restaurants, bars and cafes, 18 of them according to our directory listings. So, what's the deal? What do you think of San Marino not registering well with Yelp's search engines? What do you think are the top five restaurants in San Marino? Tell us in the comments.
