What it does

This website asks to take the users location and gets a random restaurant within a 10 mile radius of the user. It also gives the user some information about that restaurant.

Challenges we ran into

Accomplishments that we're proud of

What we learned

We learned so much because we were not familiar with javascript at all nor any previous experience using google's tools.

What's next for Restaurant Roulette

We hope to expand this into having better parameters and adding the option to add filters such dietary restriction and price.
