MenuPages can show your results in a list, or marked on a map.
You hungry? Me too. "You gotta eat" -- it's a cliche for a reason. And free, location-based restaurant search tool MenuPages makes finding the food you want easier than ever, with the help of your trusty iPhone or iPod touch.
The App Store has more restaurant-finders than Texas has rib joints, but Menu Pages gets it right by focusing on where you are, letting you find what's nearby. Filters for distance, price, and cuisine start you out -- and others such as Features (Online ordering? Open 24 Hours? Kid-friendly? Gluten Free Items?) and Meals (Dinner only? Breakfast? Brunch?) to help refine your search to that perfect spot.
Being able to check out the menu is a huge plus. And just click Call to phone 'em right up.
The real beauty of MenuPages is that every restaurant in its database has a full menu -- without the restaurant's fancy logo or distracting pictures that make so many other menu resources a pain to use -- with prices and dish descriptions to let you know what you're getting into before you go.
Handy icons on each menu screen allow you to call the restaurant, get directions, rate it, and share your find via email or by posting to your Facebook page. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the Facebook posting feature to work; perhaps that will be fixed in a subsequent build and Twitter tweet functionality will come, too.
Be a dear and review your favorite place(s). The reviews database needs some beefing up.
The app's restaurant reviews are a little thin at present since it's so new, but as the user base grows, those user reviews will provide an additional safeguard against your ever ending up in the wrong spot again. We'd like to see it expand to more cities, too -- right now it's just in NYC, LA, San Francisco, Philly, Boston, Chicago, DC, and South Florida.
The bottom line. MenuPages is a great free mobile restaurant locator that satisfies our appetite for full menu listings, location-based mapping, built-in click-to-call, directions, and social sharing features. It's a handy resource for getting friends together or just finding the perfect place to eat right now.
