“I flunked retirement!” -Bob Alexis, Founder of Back Seat Review

Back Seat Review was born from failure

After a long and successful career in the medical field Bob looked forward to spending time with his family, sailing, travelling and more.  He quickly realized that something was missing: he missed the interaction, stimulation, daily communication and contact with the general public.

After learning about ridesharing, Bob thought that this could be a unique way to stay in touch with people while exploring more of the city. Excited to start this new journey he was given a very simple yet important task from his wife - "be productive and find new restaurants".

Bob quickly discovered that ridesharing patrons have extensive knowledge, passion and opinions about their restaurants: Back Seat Review was born. After all, who doesn’t love to talk about food!

Based on thousands of critiques (good and bad) the BSR formula was created. It takes a certain number of positive recommendations before a restaurant can be added to our exclusive list.  Each restaurant must  also maintain certain number of positive recommendations to remain on our exclusive list.  Our list will not exceed 225 restaurants to ensure we are bringing you the best of the best.  Back Seat Review is an Organic site and we do not take any monetary consideration from restaurants. 

Our recommendations come from ridesharing customers: the most knowledgeable restaurant patrons in the world.  Because of this unique method of acquiring restaurant recommendations, Back Seat Review is a guide to where the locals dine.
