How was this list created?

Figuring out the best restaurants can take a long time. We pored over ratings for 10779 restaurants on Yelp and Google, 1095134 restaurant reviews in Lakewood and 1286 top lists and articles. We paid extra attention to what Eater and Thrillist had to say, and applied our Feastfox magic sauce. For example, we considered Eater - 24 Essential Tacoma Restaurants, Thrillist - The Definitive Guide to Tacoma's Best Bars and Restaurants and Eater - Shining a Light on Federal Way's Unforgettable Food Scene as we sourced this ultimate list. Our engine uses real-time data to only show restaurants that are open and their available services, so you can stay safe on your terms. Restaurants can’t pay to show up on this list, so enjoy the best food with no agenda. We don’t recommend restaurants lightly, these 10 are really something special.
