ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Yelp, a website and app that publishes crowd-sourced reviews about businesses, has released their list of the top 25 takeout spots in Rochester.

“We are one year into the COVID-19 pandemic that forced many Rochester restaurants to move to a takeout-only model. We watched as Rochesterians rallied behind these eateries by ordering takeout and sharing their experiences – all from the comfort of home,” wrote Megan Colombo of Yelp Rochester. “Based on Yelp data, we’ve put together a list to acknowledge the hard work of ROC business owners, and shine a spotlight on the top 25 spots locals went for takeout in the past year.

According to Yelp, the list’s methodology was curated by restaurants with Yelp pages created after December 1, 2017, then ranked by “a number of factors” including the total volume of ratings and reviews between March 1, 2020 and March 9, 2021, adding that this list looked at all businesses marked as open in Monroe County.
