Yelp is a source we've certainly been using more alongside Tripadvisor but I often find you have to take some of the reviews with a pinch of salt. Sometimes you read some of the negative ones, you actually find the place and it's not half as bad.

Will certainly check out the GasBuddy app - that sounds really helpful!

Thanks for stopping by Rachael! You're right, you really have to take a lot of reviews with at least a pinch of salt, but if there are a number of reviews, you can usually get a good sense of the place.
