DoorDash has released their first annual awards for the 100 Most Loved All Star Restaurants in the United Sates for 2022. Fewer than 1% of DoorDash restaurants qualified, based on data from April 2021 to April 2022. The criteria included restaurants that are reliable, top-rated by consumers, and exceptional at operations.

Surprisingly, only one restaurant in the Carolinas was named among the top 100. No, it’s not in Charleston. It’s Kaizoku Japanese Cuisine at 6461 Old Monroe Road in Indian Trail, North Carolina. Known for their poke bowls, Kaizoku is one of many Asian-style eateries to be named a “Most Loved All Star Restaurant” by DoorDash. It’s now on my list of places to try.
