Have you ever said this sentence, "wait, you have never eaten there?!"

The hole in the wall restaurant that you love but no one else knows of it. The restaurant 20 miles away from everything but has the BEST food. Or even the restaurant just off the beaten path that not enough people go to.

Why? Because they can. Word of mouth travels quickly, especially when good food is involved.
When you go to a small hidden gem of a restaurant that not a lot of your friends know, you feel prestigious. Like you know a secret. The best part of knowing about that under-the-radar restaurant is sharing it with others, who come back impressed. You help the restaurant you love, you help introduce a new place to your friends, and you were right - it is an under-the-radar place!
