Yelp users have named their top 100 restaurants of 2021, and four Colorado destinations made the list.
“Nearly all of our Top 100 are affordable spots where you can enjoy a meal for $30 or under and most are new entries to the list this year,” Yelp published on its blog last week.

To compile the list, Yelp looked to user submissions, its own national restaurant ratings and input from the site’s city managers.
Here are the four restaurants from Colorado that made the cut:
Denver’s Pho Haus has 4.5 stars on Yelp from 435 reviews. Reviewers recommend going off-menu and ordering the Phorrito, which wraps all the traditional soup fillings inside a burrito and keeps the broth on the side. Also order savory crepes, or Banh Xeo; and Thit Kho, or caramelized pork belly with hard-boiled eggs. 540 E. Alameda Ave., 720-710-9918, phohausco.com
Latke Love in Littleton has 4.5 stars on Yelp from 175 reviews and specializes in three foods — blintzes, knishes and latkes — in unusual combinations. Customers rave about the Oy Vey Caliente, a bed of four crispy potato pancakes blanketed in spicy pork Hatch green chile, shredded cheddar and an over-easy egg. 699 W. Littleton Blvd., 303-995-9708, latkelove.com
Esters Neighborhood Pub
This Denver pub has 4.5 stars on Yelp from 714 reviews. Reviewers love the neighborhood pub atmosphere, house nachos, pizzas (including vegan and gluten-free) and all the booze. Try the Prince Caspian pie with garlic olive oil, mozzarella, gorgonzola, figs, caramelized onions, prosciutto, arugula and parmesan. 1950 S. Holly St., 303-955-4904, estersdenver.com
With 4.5 stars on Yelp and 86 reviews, this Denver Thai street food spot is the newest of Colorado’s top restaurants on Yelp, but customers are already fans of the pork dumplings, pork roti, OMG Pad Thai, red curry and Thai ice cream buns for dessert. One such bun combines coconut ice cream with house sweet sticky rice, corn and sweet potatoes, plus a brown sugar syrup. 1201 E. Colfax Ave., 720-917-1000, luckynoodlesdenver.com
