Google’s Favorite Places not quite that helpful

Today I caught a sticker in the sandwich shop by the office for Favorite Places on Google and decided to give the QR code a shot. Here’s what I got in return:

Sandwich Planet via Google Favorite Places

Reviews are helpful if I’ve never been t here before but needing to call or get directions (standing at the door) seems like a total waste.  Where are the daily specials, or perhaps a default to let me add my own review right away …   I was at least able to add it as a favorite, but I’ll need to open Maps on my desktop or Google Earth to get the benefit of saving it.  These types of services needs to be much more contextually relevant to matter.

    yep. i prefer the LocalPicks app (tripadvisor), which shows the nearest restaurants incl. ratings and reviews using GPS. its faster, and has more options and other info (such as distance, price, etc)
