Search for restaurants that have a high customer return rate
Where local eats is a Rails App that allows users to search for restaurants that are the best within their search category in the requested neighborhood or location. Using the Foursquare API, a ratio is created with the amount of checkins and number of unique customers for each venue. When querying for restaurants on the site, only hgih ratios are returned within the specific area, thus giving you upper hand knowledge of popular venues when visiting a new area.
