PHOENIX — Several Valley restaurants made Yelp’s Top 100 Places To Eat in 2022 list — including one that made the top spot in the entire country.

Cocina Madrigal, a Latinx father and son-owned Mexican restaurant near 16th Street and Broadway Road, took the number one spot.

They first made the Top 100 list in 2019, but rose to the highest honor on this year's list.
