Uber has been our number one cab service ever since the trend of online cab services became popular. It’s a well-known name that operates in a number of countries worldwide. With its amazing cab services and excellent rates, Uber Technologies Incorporations decided to expand their territory. That’s when Uber Eat was introduced. This food service is like many you’ve seen before – Food Panda, Deliveroo etc. But with the Uber trademark on it, we naturally expect this to be a class apart from its competitors. But does it hold up to our expectations? Let’s find out.
Uber Eats is an Editor’s Choice app on the Google Play Store which gives it an instant leverage over other similar food delivery services. It also has over 10 million downloads on the Google Play Store alone which means the user base for this app is actually pretty amazing. Despite being a relatively (note relatively) new service in the game, Uber Eats has quickly climbed the ladder to the top and is now one of the most popular food and drink delivery services smartphones app can offer.
The app design, straight off the bat, retains the same black and white monochrome themes as Uber. It also keeps the same elegant and simplistic design of the app as its parent cab service app. Uber Eats is an app with a user-friendly interface and you don’t need to fidget around too much to know what you want and how you want it. All the lists in the app are categorically organized in a pretty neat and systematic manner and you should have no trouble navigating your way around it.
Uber Eats tickles your stomach and stimulates your salivary glands with the mouth-watering, high quality pictures on the app. If you opened the app to satiate your hunger, you’re probably going to suffer a lot more hunger pangs before you actually make a choice and place an order.
Since the Uber cab service is known for its economical rates and its fast service, Uber Eats has tried to keep that in its app as well. While the food prices themselves are unchanged since they’re connected with an actual restaurant, the delivery charges are considerably less than other top notch food delivery service. Plus, the company prides itself in delivering food to your doorstep at Uber speed.
Here’s how you can see what options you have to eat: simply give the app your location access and its will search up all the nearby restaurants that support the Uber Eats service. You can also manually browse for your favorite local restaurants, check their detailed menus and place an order if they deliver in your vicinity. You can also search for a specific dish as well. Suppose you want fish for dinner or a hamburger, all you need to do is type in what you want in the search bar and the app will find all the local restaurants with the particular dish you want in their menu.
Once you place an order, the app gives you an estimated delivery time which we have found to be more or less accurate. Users of the Uber Eats app can pay with their credit card or cash on delivery. You can also track you order in real-time after it has left the kitchen.
Uber Eats currently operates in fewer countries compared to the cab service. Still, the list is pretty expansive and includes Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam, Austin, Auckland, Baltimore, Bangkok, Cape Town, Brussels, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Dubai, Hong Kong, Glasgow, Liverpool, LA, Madrid, Melbourne, Mexico City, Miami, Milan, Mumbai, London, New Delhi, New York, Rio de Janeiro, Seattle, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Toronto, Vienna and more. New countries and cities are constantly added to the list.
