About America’s Top Ten

Tom Horan’s America’s Top Ten Club is universally recognized as the authority on Independent Dining Establishments. We have recognized and showcased the American Independent Restaurateur for over 25 years and will continue to do so.

Our reputation is based on the fact that no one pays a fee to be included on our lists and no one ever will.

Inclusion is based on the establishments food quality, service, wine and liquor served, price value, atmosphere, reputation and history; and that intangible of how one remembers their total dining experience.

We believe that our lists reflect the diversity, geography and entrepreneurship of America.
