So you’re in a new city, state or even country, and don’t really know where your favorite restaurant is? Or maybe you want to try out a new restaurant? Well there are apps for that. There are hundreds of them literally. We’ve found 10 that are pretty good, and a few of them are even exclusive to chains like Burger King or Pizza Hut.
10. Restaurant Finder
Nothing overly special about this app, but it does use your physical location to tel you what restaurants are nearby. You can search by Restaurant, Take Away, Cafe, Bar/Pub, Night Clubs, grocery stores and much more. It’s a simple app and it does exactly what you need it to do.
9. Pizza Hut
Honestly, I was kind of surprised to see Pizza Hut in India. Nonetheless, this app will allow you to find the nearest Pizza Hut, if you are ever in India. It uses Google Maps to show you exactly where that Pizza Hut is. Of course, as you can tell by the name, it will only find Pizza Hut locations for you.
8. Restaurant Finder
Nope, this isn’t the same as #10. Although It uses the same name. With this app you can automatically have it use your location and give you details about restaurants nearby. You can also search for an area, maybe you’re headed to Atlanta and want to see whats around there. It’s great for that. Yes, the UI could use some updating, but I doubt you’d be using this app extensively like Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
7. Burger King Rewards
We all love Burger King right? Well with the Burger King Rewards app, you can not only find Burger King’s around you, but you can also get coupons, rewards and much more. Too bad you can’t place an order from the app….yet. BOGO Whopper definitely sounds good to me.
Another great app, and Yes it needs a UI update badly. With the Where to Eat app you can use your GPS to find places to eat. It even has a built in tip calculator so you can give your server a nice tip once your done eating. The app has over 45 different cuisine types to choose from and can also give you turn-by-turn directions to your favorite restaurant.
5. Restaurant Finder
Here’s another restaurant finder with a rather simple name. It’s basically a Google Maps over lay that allows you to type in your City/State or ZIP and find your a restaurant you might be interested in. It’s a very lightweight app, with it weighing in at about 181kb in size.
4. McDonald’s UK
Looking for a McDonald’s in the UK? Well here’s an easy way to do that. Using the McDonalds UK app. To bad there isn’t one for the US or just the world in general. Along with being able to find nearby McDonalds you can also check out the menu, their current promotions and much more. There is also talk of being able to order from the app and pick up your order at the location soon. Now that’ll be awesome.
Here’s a nice Holo-fied Restaurant Finder app. Some of the features in FeedMe include restaurant ratings, powerful filtering, access to Google Maps and Navigation, Direct links to each restaurants profile on other sites like Yelp and Urbanspoon and more. It’s a great app, especially if you’re hungry right now.
Foodie is another restaurant finder that’s based on the Michelin guide website. Some of the features include convenient access to the Michelin guide, search near the current location based on GPS, allows you to specify a different search location, saves searches, show the restaurants location on Google maps, and much more.
A lot of you probably knew this, but just in case you didn’t. Using the Google Maps app, you can actually search for restaurants by name, or explore them along with places to get drinks, shops, movie theatres and much more. Google Maps has definitely become a very powerful app, not just for knowing where you’re going but for finding a hotel, a restaurant to eat at or a place to buy some clothes.
