Forget Yelp, People Are Using 'Pokemon GO' To Decide Where To Eat


Choosing where to eat has never been an easy task. You can drive around from city to city, checking Yelp, and before you know it, an hour has passed by and there's not a single thing filling your tummy.

Well, in addition to making people get out of the house, it seems like the new mobile game, Pokemon Go, is helping people decide where to eat, according to social media reports obtained by Business Insider.


The game uses real locations around you, at any given time, to catch Pokemon, and if you're driving around and see that a restaurant has "lured" in a lot of these little pocket monsters, there's a good chance people are going to pull over and make their way inside the establishment.

That's how crazy this game has gotten. Just last night, I pulled into a Weinerschnitzel to try and catch a Vulpix. Why? I have no idea, but I totally did. I feel super silly about it, but I have no regrets.
