You can preview menus

Read honest reviews

One of the best things about Yelp is that restaurants and businesses can’t pay money to have poor reviews removed. This means that when you use the website, you’re getting people’s honest feedback on their experience. Of course, however, it’s important to know that reviews should still be taken with a grain of salt because people’s experiences can vary.

Look at images

Do you want to get an idea of the vibe of the place you’re thinking of going to? Users can upload pictures to Yelp Philadelphia so that other potential customers can see what to expect.

While reading reviews on Yelp Philadelphia is great, you can also become a reviewer. Yelp offers its users the chance to  become food critics. People who review locations often can become well-known and highly respected Yelpers.
