How was this list created?

Selecting the right restaurant can be really difficult, especially when you would like to find a new one. We analyzed 1539 lists and articles from top sources like Eater and Berkeleyside Nosh, 31320 Oakland restaurants’ ratings across Google and Yelp, and 1095134 reviews – all with some Feastfox magic to make sense of the madness. Yes, we even looked at Eater - Where to Eat and Drink in Fruitvale, Berkeleyside Nosh - Nosh Neighborhood Guide: Fruitvale and Eater - The 38 Essential East Bay Restaurants to pull this list together. We automatically update restaurants’ availability and services, so you can find a great meal no matter what. Every restaurant shown earned its spot fair and square. With Feastfox, money never makes the list. We don’t recommend restaurants lightly, these 10 are really something special.
