New York Strip from Kenny's Wood Fired Grill

If you could only eat at one restaurant for the rest of your life, where would you go?

Those of you who said Yelp, give yourself a high-five.

The restaurant rating website and app recently released its annual list of the top 100 places to eat in America this year, which "honors businesses that rank so highly in the Yelp community's opinion that they have earned the status of 'must try within this lifetime.'"

Lucky for D-FW diners, one local spot cracked the list: Kenny's Wood Fired Grill.

Kenny's Wood Fired Grill

Kenny's, an upscale steakhouse and seafood joint located in Addison, ranked No. 48 on the list with a 4.5-star rating. Yelp considered both the rating and number of reviews per eatery to compile the list.

Yelp users have wildly praised the food, such as the adult mac 'n cheese, the pop-overs and even the bread. Said user Diane W. in September:

"I don't give 5 stars very often but this place deserves it! Everything from the food to the service was impeccable."

Four other Texas restaurants joined Kenny's on the list (and, no, they aren't part of the extended Kenny's family). Drum roll please ...

  • Franklin Barbecue in Austin (No. 9)
  • Uchi in Austin (No. 59)
  • Chama Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse in Houston (No. 75 )
  • Uchiko in Austin (No. 97)
