In its search for the best diners from sea to shining sea, Yelp teamed up with Impossible Foods, the plant-based meat company.

After narrowing the list to the top 30 diners in the country — including one here in Georgia — the eateries have been offered a chance to introduce the new Impossible Sausage to their customers.

Savannah's Little Duck Diner was the only Georgia spot to make the list, but other Southern diners, like Inskip Grill in Knoxville, Tennessee, and Early Bird Diner in Charleston, South Carolina, were also given a nod from Yelp.

“The list includes plenty of hidden gems, such as a family diner in North Pole, Alaska, an all-vegan spot in Brooklyn, a donut shop turned diner in Nebraska, the second oldest restaurant in Utah, and an eatery serving up Canadian favorites in Texas,” according to Yelp.

In the collaboration between Yelp and Impossible Foods, reviews and data from the crowd-sourced website were used to determine the best of the best.

The restaurants were given a supply of the plant-based sausage and given access to marketing tools to help promote their new dishes using the sausage.

"Diners, some might say, are the heart and soul of mom and pop restaurants. They epitomize 'local' and are often known as a community's beloved and reliable standard," according to a release from Yelp. "It is for those reasons we were excited to partner with Impossible Foods to identify some of America's favorite haunts and help make plant-based a part of everyday fare."

In 2019, Yelp named the Impossible Burger one of the biggest food trends of the year. And since then, interest in plant-based options have continued to grow. According to the company, reviews that include “plant based” have increased 140% in the past two years.

“More and more, we are seeing people make socially conscious decisions when it comes to what they do and what they eat,” according to Yelp.
