Swipe Your Finger and Food Will Come To You—No, Really!—with One of These Apps

How great it is to live in an age where you can get hot meals delivered right to your doorstep with the swipe of a finger? Food delivery apps allow for you to order from a wider range of restaurants and geographical areas --and the best part is you don’t have to go anywhere! You can continue to stay at home, be safe, and flatten the curve. Check out some of our favorite food delivery apps below:


If you're new to food delivery apps, DoorDash is a great choice. Once you enter your address or zip code, DoorDash will load all participating restaurants in your area and provide an approximate wait time before your order is even placed. You can filter results by type, price range, reviews, and more. The app offers a special deal for first-time users, like free delivery or 20 percent off your first order.

Uber Eats

Since delivery rates can depend on restaurant pricing, sales tax, and extra fees, there's some debate on which food delivery app is cheapest. A recent study compared identical orders on a few food delivery apps and found that Uber Eats was among the cheapest. Other than being affordable, Uber Eats offers a competitive range of selections when it comes to ordering food delivery, often offering various incentives to its customer base.


In business since 2004, Grubhub knows a thing or two about good food delivery service. While you can order food to be delivered immediately, you can also place an order up to four days in advance. The brand claims that it doesn't charge delivery fees. Instead, fees are set by each individual restaurant. This makes Grubhub one of the more affordable options on the market.
