The company is working with over hundreds of restaurants in these cities to put the best local food all in one place.

By tapping into the Uber network, one can get anything from its roster of local restaurants, fast. The average order takes 30 minutes from start to finish. When the user is ready to place the order, he/she will see a total that includes the food and delivery price.  One can pay with one’s Uber account and track the order.
