Consulting Yelp before deciding on dinner plans is standard operating procedure these days. Even if we don’t always trust the reviews, it’s hard to pass up a spot with four and a half stars and hundreds of reviews. Other places hard to pass up? Every one on this list. Yelp went through their numbers and found the best of the best in the United States, and the group of 100 includes everything from the fine dining at The French Laundry and Eleven Madison Park to the messy chow down at Franklin Barbecue and Bogart’s Smokehouse. Here’s a look at the Top 10:

  1. Porto’s Bakery & Cafe (Burbank, CA) – Link
  2. Cheese Board Pizza (Berkeley, CA) – Link
  3. Paseo (Seattle, WA) – Link
  4. Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que (Kansas City, KS) – Link

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
