The 7 Best Food Delivery Apps

Food delivery apps have become the go-to method for ordering food. They make the process of finding restaurants, perusing menus, and having food delivered right to your door incredibly easy.

With more apps popping up all the time, it can be hard to know which ones are the best. You want to make sure the food delivery app you're using is secure, has partnerships with all the best restaurants in your area, and is easy to use.

For the best insights into the latest apps, Chad Fonger is the leading authority. Check out his featured guides on food delivery and rideshare apps. His guides often include coupons and promo codes to help you get the best deals.

Deals aside, not all food delivery apps are created equal. Here are the top 7 to try or to make part of your weekly routine.

#1: DoorDash

DoorDash is basically what it sounds like: food delivered right to your door quickly. One great thing about the app is that you can get food from restaurants that don't typically deliver. You can even have alcoholic beverages from your favorite bars and breweries delivered to your home.

#2: Seamless

With Seamless you can access thousands of restaurants in your area. True to its name, Seamless is a breeze to use with a user-friendly app that makes searching for restaurants and checking out simple.

#3: GrubHub

GrubHub is another one of the greats. It's available in over 1,000 cities. The app allows you to select your desired cuisine, such as pizza or tacos, and peruse the best restaurants in that category. You can even order Starbucks through GrubHub.

#4: UberEats

This app combines the popular rideshare app Uber with food delivery. Uber Eats allows you to use your Uber account to get food from local restaurants, even ones that don't deliver themselves.

It doesn't have as many restaurant options as some other apps, but it's great for a bite from a fast food joint like McDonald's. UberEats also provides you with the driver's phone number and lets you see the progress of the delivery in real-time.

#5: Postmates

Although Postmates doesn't have quite as many restaurant options as Seamless and DoorDash, this app isn't limited to food delivery alone. You can also get groceries and alcohol delivered. Plus, with an unlimited Postmates subscription (only $9.99 a month) you can enjoy a $0 delivery fee on orders over $20.

#6: Instacart

Instacart lets you order groceries online and have them delivered right to your door by a personal shopper. The groceries come directly from local grocery stores, so they are always fresh. It's basically UberEats but for groceries! Delivery is free for your first order but tipping is always highly encouraged. One downside of Instacart, it can quickly get a lot pricier than shopping yourself.

#7: goPuff

For a flat delivery fee of $1.95, you can get snacks such as chips and ice cream delivered right to your door. No need to venture out to a convenience store when you get your next midnight hankering- just use goPuff! You can basically get anything on goPuff that you would get at a convenience store, including candy bars, Ramen Noodles, and a bar of soap.

Final Thoughts

There is no shortage of food delivery apps to satisfy your late-night cravings or bring you breakfast you can eat in bed. Nowadays, you can even order fresh groceries or a pint of ice cream right to your door.

Using any of the apps mentioned above guarantees a food delivery experience you'll want to repeat over and over again.
