Foodies have a new way to show off their favorite restaurants thanks to upcoming review sections coming to DoorDash.

Now you won't have to switch back and forth between Google reviews and the DoorDash app (opens in a new tab) to see if a restaurant's food is good. Written notices are added to condense all of this information as a direct update to the original public notices (opens in a new tab). With this update, people will be able to explain in more detail why their favorite restaurant is so good. DoorDash also hopes that these reviews will provide restorers with public feedback on things they can improve.

The second feature, the most liked articles, is related to the written reviews. Let's say you've chosen a restaurant based on its good reviews, but you don't know what to order from the menu. You can narrow down your decision to the items you like best, allowing people to rate individual dishes. DoorDash indicates that there will be a "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" icon next to each menu item. The top three rated boards will appear with a “Best Liked” tag next to them.

If you want to see the most popular restaurants in your area, DoorDash is adding new top 10 lists. The restaurants that appear on the list change based on user reviews and how often people order from them. Thus, the registrations are dynamic and you may end up discovering a new favorite corner.

And the last feature is Most Loved All Stars. As the name suggests, this is a collection of the best restaurants in the United States, Australia, and Canada. You can view the US 100 Ticket List (Opens in a new tab) and Australia 15 Ticket List (Opens in a new tab) on the DoorDash merchant site. However, at the time of this writing, the Canadian list has not yet been released.

Expand the reach

According to a DoorDash representative, the most popular articles and written reviews will be published in the United States and select markets in Australia and Canada. Top 10 lists will be available in select regions of the United States, Australia, Canada, and Japan. So far, these are the only countries that have these characteristics. It is not clear if there are expansion plans in other countries.

If you live in one of these countries, we recommend that you update your DoorDash app so you can start reviewing.

Over the past few months, DoorDash has tweaked its platform to make it more user-friendly. In early April, the company added a new DashPass for Students service that cuts the normal cost of a subscription in half. Other benefits include no delivery charges (as long as you reach the minimum subtotal), 5% credit, and access to exclusive menu items.

If you order a lot and want to save some money, TechRadar has introduced a new app called Too Good To Go that helps you find deals.
