I was intrigued, and signed up to participate. First, I entered my zip code. I then realized that I needed to enter my specific address, since I'm on the other side of town from the "center of town," and would have far better options with my exact address.
I decided to go for a pizza place; we had a visitor we were looking to feed, so pizza made the most sense. I selected one with a lower delivery charge (listed right on the main page, which is really helpful), and was excited to see a whole menu (it's so hard to find menus online, even through a place like allmenus). I placed my order and waited for confirmation.
About ten minutes later, I received a phone call. It turns out that the location I'd selected does not deliver to my area, but rather only provides catering. I was disappointed because not only did I waste about 10 minutes (at rush hour, waiting for delivery, with two kids to feed and keep on a schedule), but it seems that the website wasn't as updated as I'd hoped. Still today, ten days later, the website does not indicate the restaurant is catering only.
The man who called suggested a similar restaurant to which he knew an order had been successfully placed, so I turned to that restaurant next. I was now really disappointed, because it was a higher delivery charge and the site had no prices or menu on the site. Since my family and our guest were waiting, I went ahead and placed the order anyway.
The ordering experience was fairly easy--you input it and go; in this case, I ordered two pies and mentioned in the comments we wanted one plain and one mushroom. We got an email about 10 minutes later confirming the order and telling me that the order would be delivered in about 40 minutes (and THIS is why I so infrequently order delivery, but I digress).
The bell rang about 25 minutes later, sweet!
The delivery man was very confused, though, because the order was placed using a different card than the one I'd used to place the order. It was also at this point that I found out how much I was actually paying for my order. Hopefully this is something that will be resolved moving forward and as the company expands.
This service is definitely one I'd have loved when I first moved to the area; it's nice to have a one-stop-shop for which restaurants deliver to my address (aside from the catering only snafu) with menus too. If we hadn't been in this particular situation (looking for something cheap to feed 5 people), it would have opened up a quick meal option for us beyond our typical Chinese or pizza routine, which is something I'm always happy to do; there's been a ton of times we order from the less-than-favorite pizza place around the corner because it's, well, around the corner and traffic around here around dinnertime is ridiculous. I really like that you can see everything, from delivery charge to will they deliver to me, all in one place.
They are running a promotion right now; like Bringmethat on facebook to get $5 off your order, which isn't a bad deal at all! Give them a try and let me know what you think!
