Sometimes you need food delivery because you need something, anything, and you don’t have time to do it yourself. And sometimes, you’re a foodie who doesn’t want to leave home but can’t stomach a generic meal. From the essentialist on the go to the foodie staying in, here are seven iPhone food delivery apps you don’t want your phone to be without.
If there’s a restaurant that will deliver to your area, GrubHub will find it for you. You can view the menu on the app and order at the same time. Currently, the app is usable in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, DC, Philadelphia, San Diego, Portland, Denver and Boulder.
2. Snapfinger – Restaurant Ordering
Just as the title implies, this app is like snapping your fingers and getting exactly what you want in return. This app allows you to order directly from your local chain restaurants. Among many others, you can look over the menus from Outback, California Pizza Kitchen, Subway, Baja Fresh and Fatburger. Decide what you want and order it through the app.
If you live in New York City area (including parts of New Jersey), Washington D.C. area (including parts of Maryland and Virginia) and parts of San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia or L.A. (basically any major city area), you can benefit from the Seamless Web App. This app is connected to popular local restaurants so you’re not limited to the chains if you want to get a sense of the local flavor.
4. Tasting Table To-Go
If you’re a foodie, and you need answers, this the app for you. It’s not just a general delivery connection app; this app tells you where the trendiest and tastiest food and drinks are in town.
