(3TV/CBS5) -- A Mesa restaurant has landed near the top of Yelp's "Top 100 Places to Eat for 2019."
"Worth Takeaway" came in at number 14!
In fact, a total of six Arizona eateries made this year's list. The others include:
No. 26: Kodo Sushi Sake in Scottsdale.
No. 39: Homer's Smokehouse BBQ in San Tan Valley.
No. 68: Cocina Madrigal in Phoenix.
No. 76: Momo Bowl in Apache Junction.
No. 83: Not Your Typical Deli in Gilbert.
The list honors eateries across the U.S. that rank so highly in the Yelp community’s opinion that they earned the status of “must try" this year.
Ranking at No. 14 is a big deal! Our Good Morning Arizona crew was happy to feature "Worth Takeaway" on the show Tuesday morning.
"Worth Takeaway," a foodie favorite, is a fast-casual, independent, local Arizona restaurant.
It started as "just a cool place, with good food for our neighbors in downtown Mesa," states the restaurant's Facebook page.
Owners focus on sourcing ingredients from local partners, whenever possible.
Worth also features a scratch kitchen, where delicious fare is cooked up daily.
Every Monday night at 4 p.m. Worth serves ‘Monday Night Supper,’ an entree inspired by whatever the restaurant's team is interested in learning about and developing, from house-made ramen to chicken pot pie.
On the weekends Worth serves a special rotating flavor of its signature dessert, banana pudding, as well as a new brunch item.
It seems like diners agree with Yelp's high ranking of Worth.
