Useful Restaurant Ranking Scale


I didn’t come up with this, but I wish I did. All credit to Noah Hayes for this. Unless he took it from someone else. Then all credit to that person.

It’s a 5 point scale, and 5 is the best.

Scale

5: You would recommend it to a friend.
4: You would go out of your way to eat there again.
3: You would eat there again.
2: You want your money back.
1: You want your time back

Why Use This Scale?

The nice thing about this scale is that it never really leaves any doubt as to what a restaurant should be ranked.

Rather than worrying about numeric scores, it directly targets the point of restaurant rankings: to figure out where to eat.

And if you’re the special snowflake that always finds 5 star places: just be happy at your good fortune. In any case, your tastes are likely to shift, so a lot of those five-star places will go down in ranking as you run down the hedonistic treadmill like a yuppie hamster, becoming snobbier with every lap. Life’s cruel that way.
