No matter where you are, eating well is of utmost importance. Whether in the comfort of your home, too lazy to part from your couch, or visiting a city for the first time, the answer to the question “What is the best food delivery near me” is something you must know at all times.
Things are easier when in your hometown. Personally, I have the phones of all places that have food delivery near me. A pizza place, a Chinese take-out, and a fast food delivery near me, that’s all I need to function and be happy.
However, things get a bit complicated when you travel. When I was in NY a few months ago, I typed “food delivery near me” on Google because I had no idea where to start from. A few minutes of research later I concluded that the online world is full of websites and apps that offer a vast number of restaurants you can order from, without even having to speak to actual people. Just a few clicks and a little patience until the food arrives is all you need.
I spoke to some of my more digitally literate friends and they have recommended the best food delivery websites.
1. Food Place Near Me
This relatively new website is my own nominee. I stumbled upon it by chance and decided to test use it in my very first search for food delivery near me.
The page design is great and easy to navigate, offering the times when food orders are available, as well as estimated delivery time. The service covers metropolitan areas throughout the whole United States area, divided into regions for easier search.
The search is done visually, by location – click on the “Food delivery near me” section and select your location on the map. The short description that goes with every suggestion of the food delivery nearby helps you decide whether you like the place or not in a matter of seconds!
Besides the large area it covers (400 cities) and the ease of search, what makes this website stand out is their 24-hour customer support. There is a live chat you have access to at all times and where you can ask anything connected to food delivery nearby or any issues you might have regarding your order. You can also track your order’s status, which I think is not a very good idea because it makes your hunger worse.
What sets this website apart is the person-to-person communication that the rest of food delivery near me places on this list lack. They have customer service both online and on the phone, so if you are more of an old-fashioned person like me, this is an important upside (I sometimes feel like the order I’d placed by just clicking is lost in space and will never arrive, which by the way never happens, but that’s just me).
Grubhub covers hundreds of restaurants in major cities around the States. It also has Android and iOS apps to make food delivery nearby even more efficient and much easier on the go.
