Well, we’re still at home — and still ordering takeout.

Yelp has revealed the most popular food delivery order in each state during the coronavirus health crisis, and the findings might surprise you.

In a report published Thursday, the business-review platform released a list of most ordered dishes across the country since March 16, soon after the COVID-19 outbreak was declared a national emergency.

Using term frequency-inverse document frequency (TF-IDF), a Yelp data scientist calculated how frequently a dish was ordered in each state, relative to its popularity in other states. From there, the scientist standardized the dishes' names to calculate the TF-IDF scores and ultimately identify each state’s most ordered delivery meal.


Though classic takeout favorites like pizza, pad Thai, gyros, General Tso’s chicken and sushi reigned supreme, contenders like crab rangoon, bubble tea and burgers also made the cut.

“It’s no secret that delivery has made life at home a little more enjoyable for many people during the last two months,” Yelp trend expert Tara Lewis said of the results. “At Yelp, we’ve been inspired by the resilience of restaurants across the nation, and their ability to provide safe food delivery to their customers.”
