Sushi and high-end chain restaurants are doing well in Roseville, to judge from the Sacramento Business Journal’s latest analysis of social-media ratings.
The analysis ranks restaurants by combining ratings and number of votes on two popular restaurant review services, Yelp and Urbanspoon.
The popularity index rewards restaurants that get both high ratings and a lot of attention online, but it isn’t foolproof. Restaurants that attract a small but devoted following are at a disadvantage in such rankings.
One standout of that kind in Roseville is Foothills Doughnuts, which gets a highly unusual 100% rating on Urbanspoon.com. With relatively few reviewers, it didn’t make the top 25 list. But clearly Foothills Doughnuts is doing something right.
