    It's Friday, it's raining and I have no plans for lunch. I'm sick of eating at the cafeteria at work, so I'm contemplating ordering in. There are a few eateries nearby, but I'm not in the mood for pizza or Panera. So I'm thinking about using Door Dash, and it occurred to me that it might be fun to explore other food delivery apps.

    I pretty much use Door Dash exclusively. It's a great app and really easy to use. I have great success when I use it from home, but it's not as full proof when I use it for deliveries to my office. I work at a university, so my building doesn't have its own address... and while I have provided clear instructions on how to find me, drivers don't always seem to read them. To be clear, my frustration is with the human element, and not the app itself! I will say that Door Dash's customer service is outstanding! They go above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction, and I continue to use them because of that.

    It's nice to have options however, so I've contemplated using Uber Eats, but the delivery fee seems a little steep. Door Dash's delivery fees are more competitive, and if you order after the rush, the fees are often less.

    I've also looked at Grub Hub, and the list of restaurants isn't as appealing.

    So, I'm looking for suggestions and recommendations. Do you have experience with any of the three Apps I've mentioned? Or, other apps out there that offer the same service that you'd like to share?

    That's about it, unless there's one more local to your area. We have one here called GrubSouth. They have an app, but are local to the North Alabama area. There was another local one called ShoalsTakeOut. They were online only, but are going out of business.
    DoorDash is nice and have a wide selection of restaurants here. I have 6 days left to get free delivery.

    I’ve used Grub Hub, TakeOut Central and Postmates, and they all did well for me.

    I’ve been using Seamless in various cities for the past 10+ years. Not sure what I’d do without it LOL. I think it’s owned by Grubhub now.

    I use Postmates the most. They have a “party” feature, if a restaurant you want is part of the “party” the delivery is free.
