    Best restaurant finder app based on current location? Free or cost. I guess it has to match with your gps location.

    Thanks

    Where is a great app for that. There's also Open Table, which is mainly for restaurants that you can place a reservation. Both of those are free. Many others as well, like Fast Food Finder or Chinese Restaurant (also free).

    Not just a restaurant app but "Places Directory" works well for me.

    At least in my experience in a fairly large city, Google Local has worked well, but also use Open Table on weekends during busy times . . .

    The only thing I don't like about Where is that it has given me a lot of restaurant results that are not in business anymore :(

    Food Finder is exactly what you are looking for. It basically just used google maps but it breaks it down by type of food and distance to make it much easier to use.

    Yep, the built in Google functions do just fine. Longpress search, say "restaurants nearby", done. I also use Open Table.

    From google mobile's main page they have near me now if you have gps enabled. They break it down to different categories.

    Opentables is free and you can set a reservation on-line. Better establishments use them, so you can weed out dives that Guy wouldn't even go to.

    Yelp gives you user reviews, also free.

    Or you could spend the $10 and get the Zagat app.

    When I went to the Market it said that the app wasn't comparable with the Bionic.

    Bionic is running Android 2.3

    It will be very compatible. Go ahead and download it and try it out without any hesitation. If it does not work, we will refund you.

    Thanks,

    Have used yelp and where before and both are good but they all do the same thing. Checked out the review posted above by 2guys1droid and there is nothing different about food finder than the others. They all offer the same service.

    However, I will say that I did notice where would lead to me to businesses that were no longer in open just as another poster mentioned. In one case it lead me to a vacant lot.

    What I have found to be the best is "places". This'll it's already on your phone as it is packaged with Google maps so there is no need to download another app.

    Places has never steered me wrong.
