Just a quick note about a very convenient service I found recently. After getting a few fliers in the mail, I finally decided to check out grubhub.com. With the tag phrase “Discover who delivers”, I figured it might be worth looking into. Sure enough, this easy-to-use website solves many a late night problem. Simply click on a map or type in your location, check/uncheck the “delivering now” and “online ordering” boxes and even choose what kind of grub you are seeking and – voilà!
All of us have surely at some point stopped and thought, “Damn, if only I knew who else delivered around here. I’m so sick of [insert your local too often visited pizza joint here].” Well, here is the solution. A simple idea, but oddly enough one that no one had seen through to fruition before. The About Us section does a good job explaining why: “It became clear to them why nobody had done this before; this information sucks to collect. Some of the restaurants were unresponsive, some didn’t understand English and others still were just plain rude. GrubHub.com is the result of several hundred hours of mind-numbing, data collection.” I, for one, lift my hat off to Matt and Mike for taking one for the team.
So next time you’re up late brainstorming your next million dollar idea, finishing an English essay, laying down that sweet bass track or just too busy to cook, skip the usual Thai place down the street or gyro stand you’ve been to a thousand times and go to grubhub.com to expand your culinary horizon while getting to know your neighborhood a little better. Bon appetit!
