“Whether right in your backyard or requiring a road trip, these spots are worth exploring in 2021,” Yelp noted of its top vegan restaurant list. “Note that some of the featured restaurants may not be 100% vegan but have been determined by Yelp (methodology below) as the top-reviewed vegan/plant-based option in that state.”
To compile the list, Yelp pinpointed businesses in the vegan category with the word “vegan” mentioned in a majority of reviews. Then, it ordered those spots using factors such as the total volume and ratings of reviews with “vegan” in them. Included businesses were all marked open as of Dec. 22, 2020. All listed businesses have a health score greater than a C or 70 as of December 22, 2020, when available.
