Time to free up some space on those smartphones, Phoenix residents. As of this week, the food delivery service, UberEats, is available in metro Phoenix, meaning you can get food from some of the city's top restaurants delivered right to your front door. Or office door. Or the door to whatever place you might be in.
The app — brought to you by the same smart folks behind the ride sharing app, Uber — is pretty easy to use. Just sign in, enter a delivery location, browse through the list of local restaurants that have signed up to participate, order your food, and wait. Most orders take about 35 minutes to arrive. You can even watch your food as it makes its way to you, the same way you can watch an Uber driver on his or her way to pick you up.
And we're not talking about getting sandwiches and pizza delivered, guys. We're talking pork belly ramen, The Original Chopped Salad, and fried chicken skin po'boys. Food from restaurants including The Gladly, The Clever Koi, Short Leash Hot Dogs, The larder + the Delta, Crudo, Okra, Delux, Bitter & Twisted, and Tacos Chiwas is available for delivery through the UberEats app.
For now, delivery is available in downtown, midtown, and uptown Phoenix, as well as in Arcadia, the Biltmore, Old Town Scottsdale, and Central Scottsdale from 8 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. Best of all, for a limited time, delivery is free.
