I don't trust any Trip Advisor review for anything. The only reason I ever go there is to see if there are additional photos of a lodging I'm considering. Yelp is also way off my radar.
And I'm skeptical of anyone's reviews of or recommendations for restaurants, even those of my best friends. Our tastes are so different. I'm sure they feel the same about mine.
I have also been disappointed by RS and Forum recommendations. I'd bet that only 10% of those I've tried have been worth the time or money, no matter the price. I seem to have better luck walking around near where I'm staying, looking at menus and the people there and choosing on the fly.
My husband has to be absolutely starving to go to any fast food or order-at-the-counter restaurant anywhere. The only local exception to that is one here that makes the best gazpacho we've ever eaten.
Even in the big truck pulling the race trailer, we will go out of our way to find a local, mom & pop kind of place where he can sit down and get table service. I'm not so picky about that, but I'm not the one driving.
Note: Try as I might, I cannot seem to get the same results for the previously mentioned Vernal or Tucson. I'm getting much different results using Trip Advisor, Yelp or my usual generic "restaurants in xxx" Google search. In any case the ratings are clearly based on supposed customer input, i.e. popularity, not on any food critic kind of criteria.
