Feeling lucky? Shake your phone and Urbanspoon’s suggestions will start spinning like a slot machine. Once they stop you can see if you hit the jackpot by finding a good place to grab a bite. If not, shake it and try again.
Androidtapp.com said Urbanspoon is an “Awesome location based restaurant recommendation app” that “Helps with deciding dining choices,” and can provide “restaurant information; address, phone number, user and critic reviews, menu, etc.”
“Have you ever been in the situation where you can’t decide where to eat?” AndroidandMe.com asked. “Urbanspoon can solve that problem with a simple shake of your phone. Urbanspoon is essentially a ‘restaurant slot machine’ with the outcome being a restaurant choice.”
This app is good for finding a local restaurant, maybe checking out its menu or even making a reservation. It doesn’t necessarily cover every city or every restaurant, but it can be very helpful where it is available.
“So how well does OpenTable work?” Androidandme.com asked. “Pretty darn well actually. Just this past week, I made reservations at a popular restaurant in downtown Minneapolis at 5pm to surprise my wife before going to see a play. Realizing I was running slightly late at work, I was able to change the reservation from 5 to 5:30 all while stopped at a stoplight on the drive home. I was also able to click on the address in the app to get directions via Google Maps.”
