The latest scoop on the best dining experiences in the US has dropped, and boy, it's a feast for the eyes—and the stomach. OpenTable, the master of digital reservations, has churned through a stomach-churning 12 million verified reviews to make this year's Top 100 restaurants list. And guess what? Austin's food scene is looking hotter than a jalapeño in July, with five local hotspots making the cut.

The Texas capital's crown jewels include Clark's Oyster Bar, a haven for seafood aficionados, J Carver's - where oysters meet chop house sophistication, Jeffrey's Restaurant, the go-to for prime cuts since '75, Red Ash Italia, where the pasta's as handcrafted as the vino, and Uchi Austin - the sushi empire expanding faster than you can say 'roll 'em up'. So if you're in Texas, hitch that hunger to one of these fine establishments and ride off into the culinary sunset, according to  KXAN.

It ain't just Austin, though—the Golden State's got its fair share of bragging rights with 14 spots on the list. From LA faves like Bavel and Bestia to Napa's The Restaurant at Auberge du Soleil, California is living up to its reputation as a diner's paradise. Florida isn't far behind, unfolding seven culinary wonders, including the highly-touted Bern's Steak House and Miami Beach's Stubborn Seed, as per Travel + Leisure.
