Sure, it’s always a good idea to live within your means and save for the future. But every now and again, it’s important to treat yourself to something special, too.

Be it a birthday, anniversary, promotion, or a hefty tax refund, splurging on a good meal every so often can be good for your soul. And thankfully, Yelp has parsed out 100 places around the country where those dining-related splurges should take place.

“To determine Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Treat Yourself for 2019, we looked at the reviews received by three and four dollar sign businesses in the restaurant and food categories,” a Yelp representative explained. For the rankings, Yelp considered both the rating and the volume of the reviews, as well as accounted for the overall volume of reviews in each business's area so as not to “disadvantage businesses in areas with relatively low review volume.”

So as we near the end of tax season, if you find yourself with some additional discretionary funds, perhaps consider a nice meal out (or a vacation, if you're really ambitious). Here are the 100 best places to splurge on a meal out, according to Yelp.
