The most-loved grocery store in the county is a Trader Joe's in Gilbert, according to an analysis of Google reviews by mobile gaming company Solitaired.

Zoom in: Forty-five of the 50 grocery stores with the best reviews were Trader Joe's locations, illustrating the chain's "success in delivering a high-quality customer experience," per Solitaired.

  • The one at the corner of Williams Field Road and Val Vista Drive in Gilbert topped the list with nearly 1,700 reviews and 4.8 stars.

How they did it: Solitaired included in its analysis only stores with more than 1,000 reviews, combining the star rating and number of reviews to rank each store.

  • The company, which develops mobile card games like Spider and FreeCell, discovered that a large number of users said they play the games while waiting in line at the grocery store.
  • "Given our goal at Solitaired is to create moments of joy, it got us wondering what grocery stores provide the best experience," the company wrote.
