National Diners Guide

Use ROC United’s Diners’ Guide app (for iPhone & Android) to find restaurants that are doing right by their employees! If restaurants meet our standards on wages, benefits, and promotion practices, we consider them “high road” restaurants.

The app also provides employment info on the most popular restaurants in America in major cities across the country, from Los Angeles to D.C. to New York City.

New app features coming soon to the 2015 versions!

  • know of a “high road” restaurant in your city that isn’t in our app yet? you’ll be able to submit it to our app to be considered for publication!
  • raise awareness of racial justice issues prevalent throughout the restaurant industry, like occupational segregation!
  • head straight to a restaurant’s Yelp! page to leave reviews that encourage “high road” practices!

This guide isn’t about boycotting certain restaurants. We want you to continue to dine at your favorite restaurants, but if they don’t score well in the guide (or are absent altogether), we want you to tell the restaurant owners that fair wages, access to paid sick days and internal advancement opportunities are important to you. If they are high road restaurants, they’re deserving of praise!

The app has been featured in several publications including
The New York Times, WNYC, The Huffington Post, and The Washington Post!

Feeling especially pumped about standing up for higher wages and fair labor practices?

In addition to downloading our app, please join The Welcome Table, an association of eaters across the country joining forces to hold the restaurant industry accountable to sustainable labor practices and/or download the consumer toolkit to spread the word.


If you’re in NYC and are interested in fair labor practices everywhere you go, check out SWICH! They’re all about helping you find better businesses that share your values.

    I, for one, appreciate what you are doing. I was a waiter for 4 years prior to an Army career; and I stand, in solidarity, with you in pursue what’s owed you.
