Tuesday Tip: Restaurant Finder Through Facebook Friends

By Kristen Evangelista


If you’re a huge foodie like me, you will love this “secret” restaurant search tool on Facebook! You can only access it from the search bar. It will even show restaurants your friends have “liked” on Facebook, complete with map. 

Here’s how to search from the mobile app:

  1. Type “restaurants nearby” into the Facebook search bar.
  2. Click the Places button at the top of Facebook (you might have to “scroll” over).
  3. Click the Visited by Friends button at the top of Facebook.

You can filter the results even more by pressing the Filters option that appears at the top left, or simply choose from the other selections at the top like Price, Open Now, and Features (for delivery, takeout, and parking).

A similar way to complete the search is to type something like “pizza” into the search bar. A list of places nearby will automatically come up, and you are able to see the ones liked by your friends.

All the restaurants shown are places that at least one of your Facebook friends has liked. If you open the company’s Facebook page, you can see which friends liked it from the Community section.

Tip: this search works for all types of businesses! Just type the name — like bank, escape room, etc. — to see those results.
