Order from

I honestly don't do takeout often, but it's a trusty, convenient standby for when time is tight or, in this instance from a few weeks ago, the kitchen is EMPTY.  Literally. Brand new kitchen, no food, and less than an hour to finish up working on something at home before having to head out.  Enter: is exactly what it sounds like.  The easiest possible name to remember for a food delivery service.  Search, order, and pay online, and wait for your food. Easy peasy.

When the folks at asked me to review their services, I knew a time would come when I'd need it.  On this particular night, the BF and I needed some good eats but had to stay home, where the cupboards were bare.  So we entered his address and browsed the many, MANY restaurants that delivered to his area.

From the get go, the website was extremely easy to navigate.  I didn't have to waste any time figuring out how it worked or where to click.  First you enter your location (pictured above) and then you can refine your search by cuisine (over 50 different options!), rating, delivery fee, minium, etc.  Very helpful!  Then browse the options, select a restaurant, and view the menu.

The menu is also easy to read, prices and all.  Hovering your mouse over the menu item will reveal a more detailed explanation of what the item is. Then you select, type in any special requests, and place your order!  Depending on the restaurant's preferences, you can pay online by card or in cash.  We paid online, received our confirmation email, and waited for the buzzer.

Our food arrived in about 30 minutes - easy and done.  The bag included napkins and plastic utensils. Just what we needed!

What I liked:
  • User-friendly website
  • Many search features (shown above)
  • Can sort lists by merchant name, distance, rating, order minimum, or discounts.
  • Starts with your address, ensuring that your results will deliver to you, at the selected time.
  • Allows for immediately delivery OR to place an order for later.
  • It's more than just food!  Categories include: restaurants, caterers, groceries, wine & liquor, flowers & gifts, pet supplies, bakeries & desserts, butcher shops, and office supplies.

What I wish it also did:
  • Allow searching for multiple cuisines at once.
  • Display the expected delivery time before placing the order.

Overall, a positive experience!  Next time I'm in a bind and need food delivered, I'll likely go straight to  Easy to remember, simple to use.

What's your favorite way to do takeout/delivery? A certain website? call? go get it yourself? 

Disclosure: gave me a $10 coupon code for my first order as a basis for this review.  The thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. 


  1. we never order take out.. usually for cost reasons, but i like the idea of this! and sushi? always a good choice!

  2. Living where I do I NEVER do delivery unless Im traveling...I LOVE TO TRAVEL :-)

    1. Interesting - I'd never thought of delivery while traveling. Wouldn't even know where to order from lol!

  3. This is awesome! I don't do delivery a lot because I would rather drive somewhere myself than pay a delivery charge (I'm cheap) but on lazy nights delivery can be the best thing ever.

    1. Yeah, I try to avoid fees, too. Generally delivery is a standby for terrible weather or when I'm sick. :/

  4. I never do take out. Like Linz, I usually don't because of cost. If it's going to take 30 minutes, I usually can whip up something to eat. Yes, it may have to get creative if there's nothing in the fridge, but that's when I rely on my pantry/freezer. I do like the idea this is more than food. Office supplies? That could come in handy at the office.

    1. Definitely agree. 30 minutes is more than enough time to make something on my own. (Usually for me that means my tangy tuna avocado mush lol.) I never really do takeout, either. But when there was a brand new, unstocked kitchen (I meant EMPTY haha) and limited time, this helped :)

      And good idea about ordering from the office in a pinch - useful!

  5. I've heard of something like this but have never tried it. Very interesting So often we do take out vs actually eating out to save on the tip. =)

  6. WOOWWWW.....An interesting way to order food on line...A variety of food items are available in the menu..You can get food of your choice at anytime..

  7. wow what a great idea. I don't usually get a lot of take out food but if i do i'll definitely have to check out this site!

  8. I always look at ads for services like these and think I need to try them, but never get around to it. Glad you had a good experience with them!

  9. What a cool website! I would never think to order my dinner online but I guess there's a website for everything now!

    If you have a cheat day every week, and some do this over the weekend, as in
    two days of unbridled mastication, you would never

  11. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme
    of this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance.
    I must say that you've done a very good job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super quick for me
    on Internet explorer. Exceptional Blog!
