10 Best Restaurants in Anaheim (According to Yelp)

Anaheim is famous for being home to the original Disneyland. But what most people don’t know is that it is also home to another J. Morey Insurance office! So if you are wondering why I chose Anaheim, this is why.

So once again, I will be using Yelp.com to systematically choose the top 10 best places to eat. But this time we will be inspecting the city of Anaheim.

For those who need a reminder, here is how I will be scoring the restaurants:

(Stars) x (number of ratings) x (price)

Price will be represented as follows: $-2.0 $$-1.75 $$$-1.5 $$$$-1.25.

So with this formula, I present to you the 10 best restaurants in Anaheim:

Proving that sometimes location is the only thing a restaurant needs, this Cajun style restaurant is a Disney crowd favorite. With its traditional New Orleans menu, some of their favorites are their pasta jambalaya, fried chicken, and beignets.

If you’re looking for a delicious and healthy meal, this is the place to go. As Mediterranean food continues to become more popular, this restaurant prevails as being one of the best. With popular sides like pita bread, hummus, and basmati rice, these healthy option are only another reason to check this place out.

  1. Earl of Sandwich

Stars: 4 Ratings: 1241 Price: $ Score: 9928

At the top of our list is another Downtown Disney favorite. Although probably not deserving of its low price rating, this sandwich shop has become a big hit for the people of Anaheim. With all sorts of sandwiches, everyone can have something they want and enjoy the Disney atmosphere.
