Big news for delivery fans— UberEATS, Uber’s food delivery business, launches in New Orleans today. What does that mean? Basically, anyone can use the app to order from the menu at 100+ local restaurants and have food delivered.
The UberEats app can be downloaded here or you can also order online via ubereats.com. From there, you can set up a delivery address, browse restaurant menus, pay for food with a card on file, and track the order, which makes the process a bit different from a conventional restaurant delivery.
Participating restaurants include a range of eateries around town, from soul food spots to juice bars, including Willie Mae’s Scotch House, District Donuts, The Ruby Slipper, Juan’s Flying Burrito, City Greens, Raw Republic, MoPho, Company Burger and more.
UberEats is offering free delivery during the launch. No word on if Uber’s infamous surge pricing will also accompany those orders when demand is high. The delivery app is quickly expanding, with plans to enter 22 countries (yes, countries) in the near future.
