It’s about time that Uber for food and restaurants hit the scene. Since there are tons of apps for everything else: making to-do lists, creating music, edit pictures, catching a ride, and a lot more, well, it’s about time that Uber for food delivery is the new wave of Uber-style smartphone apps.
Uber for food delivery has actually existed for quite some time, as many local restaurants and websites have had services for this type of thing. But in 2017, with the Uber revolution underway, there have been a number of newcomers – which is why we were compelled to create a list of the best apps for food & restaurant delivery. Without further ado, let’s dig in!
Our Favorite Food & Meal Delivery Service Apps:
Purple Carrot: Plant-based Meal Subscription Service
Although this isn’t an app, this qualifies for this topic since it is a similar concept – sign up for something, and receive it at your door. Except in this case, it is a plant-based meal for 2 that is delivered 3 times a week to your house for $78. You might be wondering, why would anyone pay for that? Plant-based meals that are gluten free and barely have any sugar or salt? Well, this service is not just endorsed by NFL star and future Hall of Famer Tom Brady, but used by him as well. And if his sold-out $200 cookbook is any indication, his Purple Carrot meal subscription service will likely be a huge success. Check it out here: https://www.purplecarrot.com/tb12
GrubHub: Food Delivery & Takeout App
GrubHub is one of the most popular, and reliable ways to place online deliveries for food. The way it works is that it connects you with restaurants near you. You can narrow down your search by price range, pick-up only or delivery, and the type of food you want. You get to see information such as the restaurant’s hours, minimum delivery, and their delivery fee.
Some cool features GrubHub has is that it saves your favorite restaurants, and even your previous orders. This makes it so you don’t have to go through the menu every time for your favorite order. It’s pretty easy to get started with GrubHub. All you need to do is sign up for free and you can get started on your next at home food delivery app service.

Seamless: Food Delivery from Restaurants Near You
The next app on this list is Seamless. It works a lot like GrubHub in the way that it connects you to the different restaurants in your area that deliver. Searches can be narrowed down by cuisine, price range, delivery time, and more. You’ll notice that Seamless works and is laid out similarly to GrubHub, making it quite the competitor.
To be honest, this might as well be GrubHub. Aside from that, it is extremely reliable and is one of the most popular apps to order food from. Give it a try if you haven’t yet, it’s free to sign up here: https://www.seamless.com
Postmates: On-Demand, 24/7 Food Delivery App
One of the apps that is one the come up for food delivery is Postmates. Enjoy different cuisines that are often not available on either GrubHub or Seamless with this app. Something pretty interesting is that you can even get non-food items if non-food related stores decide to become partnered in your area’s Postmates roster.
Things like Subway and Starbucks are food chains you never find for delivery. This is where Postmates gets it’s edge, and is definitely why people are using it more and more.

Deliveroo: Takeaway Delivery App from Premium Restaurants Near You
If you are located in the UK, then Deliveroo is just for you. Choose what kind of food you want, from breakfast to healthy, or Italian to more affordable choices. Deliveroo keeps it pretty classy. When you are browsing through your options, you see the type of cuisine a restaurant offers, as well as the average delivery time. This is great because if you need food fast, you can choose quicker options.
Something you might like about Deliveroo is that it provides a ton of healthy options, even vegetarian and gluten-free! Whether you live in the UK or are there for a visit, you should definitely try it out: https://deliveroo.co.uk/
Jinn: Food Delivery App in Minutes
Another UK option is Jinn. Being available in London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Glasgow, and Leeds, both citizens and tourists of the UK can enjoy the convenience of food delivery through the Jinn app. You will notice that many of the options are fresh and, for the most part, healthy. This is great because many of us want to eat healthy while still enjoying the convenience of delivery.
With that being said, you can still indulge and order some McDonald’s if you would like. It’s one of the most popular food chains that don’t deliver (unless you order through Jinn!). It’s a very nice app that is easy to use, so we definitely recommend if you’re in the UK: https://www.jinnapp.com/
UberEats: Food Delivery in San Francisco & More
