Meet the Restaurant That Wants to Be the Worst Reviewed Restaurant Ever on Yelp

Meet the Restaurant That Wants to Be the Worst Reviewed Restaurant Ever on Yelp

Botto Bistro in Richmond, CA near the Bay Area is fed up with Yelp's alleged manipulation of consumer reviews. To combat corruption within Yelp, Botto Bistro has a new, lofty goal: be the single worst reviewed restaurant on Yelp.

Congratulations, Darrin Z., Daniel B., and Diana A. You all just earned 25% off of your next meal at Botto Bistro!
