Finding good food at a moment’s notice is now easier than ever thanks to the invention of these free apps for cell phones and computers.

Whether you are at home or out and about these top free apps will help you find exactly what you are looking for instantly.

1. UrbanSpoon

Urbanspoon is a fantastic food finder app. It tops our list because it has basically been around longer than any other free food finder app on the market today.

You can browse specific types of restaurants based on type, price, and location, or you can let the app pick a restaurant at random for you from a huge database.

If you have trouble making up your mind on where to eat, this app is great for deciding for you. It also provides reservation availability, reviews, favorites and top-rated restaurant guides, and hours of operation.


Yelp tops our list as well having a lot of the same features as Urbanspoon, but it is not just geared towards finding food. It helps you find gas stations, parks, and fun things to do around you.

Yelp recently added a review writing feature for customers as well, and it deletes reviews made by business owners, which makes the reviews a lot more reliable and true.

This app is great if you are new to a city and are looking for good places to eat and fun stuff to do.

3. FastFood

FastFood is also a top-rated free food finder app. It boasts having restaurant reviews, ratings, menus, up to date deals, and a map all on one page. Unlike the other top apps, this one shows actual specials and deals currently available at restaurants in its system.

You can also look up the gas station and grocery store locations very easily. Another great feature of this app is its recipe finder tool, which allows you to check out and try all sorts of great recipes.

4. AroundMe

AroundMe is on the forefront of food finding app technology. It not only helps you find good restaurants near to you, but it can also help you book and find hotel rooms, find gas stations, find ATMs, get movie schedules, and find local bars and nightclubs around you.

It is also a worldwide app featuring many different languages from around the world, so no matter what language you speak and where you are in the world, you can find exactly what you are looking for.

5. GrubHub

GrubHub also made our list as a top contender because of its unique ability to allow the user to order food for free online from tons of local restaurants. You can do it from your phone or computer, and it takes less than five minutes to complete any order.

This app is food-specific, which makes it easy to navigate and find exactly what you are looking for very quickly.
