Uber Eats promises to deliver the food you want with the same speed and efficiency Uber is known for. This is kind of like ordering a pizza, except here you can order from a wide range of restaurants in your area. The app and service is still new, but it’s making a lot of buzz for good reasons.
The app has collaborated with several restaurants to make the service possible, and more are being added all the time. Once you have downloaded the app, you have to create an Uber account and provide your contact number, location, etc.
Once registered, Uber Eats presents you with a list of restaurants near you, and you can also browse via the cuisine. As you browse through the list, Uber Eats calculates how long the delivery time will be, giving you time to prepare. Each restaurant list displays the most popular dishes, and you can look the full menu as well. If you have a specific dish in mind, use the search function.
After you’ve chosen a dish, add it to the cart and go through the payment process. An order page will appear confirming your order, payment and other details as well as the expected delivery time. Now all you have to do is wait for the food to be delivered. Just like with Uber, there is no need to tip the delivery person as it is included in the payment.
You can track the delivery progress on the app, and if there is a delay in the delivery, the app will notify you. While the service is still new, it clearly has potential and worth checking out.
