If you want brunch, lunch or dinner delivered to you via Uber, there's a new app for that called UberEATS. We'll wait while you download it. Or delete a few apps first to find room. The struggle is real.
Uber has joined the likes of Caviar, DoorDash, GrubHub and others that are hot on food delivery. Gone are the days when pizza was the only deliverable. Now, there's burgers, Thai food, cookies and more.
Existing Uber users can use their same logins to use the new UberEATS standalone app.
The new UberEATS app has dramatically expanded food delivery hours -- 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
(A former iteration of UberEATS offered lunch service only, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.)
Here's the change: There are two kinds of delivery services within the UberEATS app. No. 1: INSTANT, where your food is expected to arrive in 10 minutes or less. That's available only from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. No. 2: During the other hours between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m., UberEATS offers regular deliver-to-your-door service. Just don't expect it in 10 minutes.
According to a press release, UberEATS will work with more than 100 restaurants such as HG Sply Co, East Hampton Sandwich Co., Pakpao, Monkey King Noodle, Bolsa Mercado, Oddfellows and more.
For now, delivery will be free. At an undisclosed time -- "in a few weeks," says an Uber spokeswoman -- delivery will bump up to $4.99 per order.
You're free to order in your sweatpants (or, sure, wearing something else) if you're located in these areas of Dallas: downtown, Uptown, Bishop Arts, Deep Ellum, Design District, Oak Lawn, Highland Park, Knox-Henderson, Lower Greenville and Lakewood.
Note that the INSTANT delivery service occurs in a smaller area than the regular delivery service:
