Chicagoans can now order more than just rides from Uber – the popular ride-sharing app has launched a new program that will deliver food to customers too.
UberEATS launched in the Chicago market Tuesday, and aims to be the go-to service to bring busy workers lunch weekdays from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
“Chicagoans can use their Uber app to request lunch from the most popular, iconic restaurants in the city — no standing in line, no waiting for a table, just a tap of the app and lunch is on its way,” their website states.
The UberEATS curated menu changes daily, and will kick off with an inaugural menu from Rick Bayless’ popular XOCO, Freshii, County Barbeque, Doc B's, DMK Burger Bar, and more.
"Like requesting a ride via Uber, UberEATS offers real-time order tracking and effortless automatic payment through the app. Enjoy food from Chicago's most popular local restaurants brought to you faster than any other delivery service - 10 minutes or less," an Uber spokesperson said in a statement.
How to order:
1. Open the app and slide over to EATS (only visible when you’re in The Loop or River North)
2. Enter address or move pin to your location, and tap VIEW MENU
3. Select number of meals, tap PLACE ORDER, and your driver will appear curbside clutching culinary delights within minutes
