I remember being vastly disappointed on my honeymoon to New Orleans because I read Urban Spoon and all the places I went completely sucked.  After I experienced that, I did two things:  stopped relying on online reviews, and stopped using Urban Spoon and Yelp.  I ask.  I go on reddit.com/r/whatevercityI’mvisiting and ask or r/food and ask.  Reddit.  It’s always been a win for me.
