Blog name: www.justineats.com

Who writes it: Justin Lee is a late 20-something who's an Arizona native and is a freelance writer who loves to eat and cook. He uses five tenets when reviewing eateries, including understanding the foods before he reviews them and going into restaurants with an open mind. It's evident the guy is very intelligent judging by the sharpness of his writing.

Why you should visit it: The blog has an extensive list of categories, and while it's a little difficulat to navigate, the writer seems like someone you'd want to take food advice from because he's unpretentious and thorough. In addition to posting lots of local takes on food, he also features tidbits from around the country.

Our favorite post: We love the "Personal Ramblings" section of the blog, where Justin talks about everything from movies to his opinion on frozen peas. In this post, Justin gets down and dirty about hot dogs and why they're so fabulous.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
