This year, the top places to eat are just a road trip away.

Whether you're a foodie or not, I think it's safe to say that we all enjoy a delicious meal every once in a while. Some of us stick to our favorites while others branch out and try something new. That's where Yelp comes in with their annual list of the Top 100 Places to Eat each year.

This year, we'll have to load up the car to try these places.

Unfortunately, not every state in the Ark-La-Tex made the list. In fact, neither Arkansas nor Louisiana locations listed. However, Texas landed eight restaurants on the list with just about every kind of cuisine you could be searching for. Here are the ones who made the list and the number at which they were ranked.

23. Tony's Italian Delicatessen in Montgomery
36. Tommy Tamale Market & Cafe in Grapevine
46. Le Pam's House of Creole in Houston
47. Empa Mundo in Irving
65. Gino's Deli Stop N Buy in San Antonio
73. Yoyo's Hot Dog in Houston
83. The House of Gyros in Mesquite
86. Boteco in Austin

Yelp's yearly list is compiled using reviews on the site in the categories of restaurant and food. They also take into consideration the number of reviews as well as the rating. The number one restaurant on the list is TKB Bakery & Deli in Indio, California.
