UberEATS, a food delivery system affiliated with the Uber ride-sharing App, just started bringing New Orlean’s delicacies to everybody’s doorstep, as from yesterday.
The platform, accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, either on the Internet (ubereats.com/neworleans/) or on iOS and Android, is a service that uses Uber’s network of drivers to deliver throughout of New Orleans metro area. The standout App makes it possible to order from more than 100 local restaurants including The Company Burger, Raw Republic Juice, Willie Mae’s Scotch House, Slice Pizzeria, The Halal Guys NOLA, Bao & Noodle, Mopho, Oceana Grill, The Sweet Life Bakery and much more.
The service will usually charge a flat delivery fee of $4.99, but since it’s its starting week, the fee is waived until Nov. 8. UberEATS explains on its website that tips “aren’t included and they aren’t expected or required. You can always rate your experience after you order.” (ubereats.com/neworleans/faq)
But how does it work? After downloading the App (or surfing on the website), you can browse the nearest restaurants and choose your food. You pay your meal with the payment info associated with your Uber account. The average delivery time is about 35 minutes, according to UberEATS. You can then track your food until it’s right outside your door.
You might have to be careful, as for UberEATS can charge an extra fee for a busier area. Before clicking on a specific restaurant, an arrow icon with the additional fee will pop out to inform you of the fee details if it’s located in a busy neighborhood. Voila!
