Souvla in Hayes Valley, a trendy Greek sandwich shop in San Francisco, was the most-visited restaurant in Lyft’s 32 nationwide markets. No place was more popular for “quick bites” than a Las Vegas In-N-Out Burger.
Good Times at Davey Wayne’s surpassed another Los Angeles watering hole, The Abbey, after back-to-back years as the bar of choice for Lyft passengers. The Abbey remained the most-frequented LGBTQ staple in Lyft’s market.
