Waitress Taking Orders

(PRNewswire)  TripAdvisor has unveiled a new ranking revealing the top restaurant chains in the U.S. for 2019. The rankings are based on millions of reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor diners covering fine dining, casual dining, quick service and fast casual. The restaurants are organized into three categories based on their number of property locations.

Rankings for each restaurant chain were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quality, quantity and recency of reviews from all of a chain's property locations that were listed on TripAdvisor during a 12-month period.
