Delivery.com...Giveaway!

Recently we were given the opportunity to try the website www.Delivery.com, which is a site that allows you to order from nearby restaurants and cafes and either have it delivered straight to your door or ready for pick up. I hadn't heard of this site before, but it sounded like a great idea!

When we logged on to the www.Delivery.com site, it was incredibly easy to navigate. I simply entered my work address and hit "Search".

Pros:

  • Options for Delivery or Pick Up
  • Quick list of all the participating restaurants in the area.
  • Filters restaurants alphabetically or by distance
  • Listed many restaurants we didn't even realize were in our area.
Cons
  • Choosing "Pick Up" cut down on our options significantly.
  • The website did not work properly for the second restaurant we ordered from.
  • Most restaurants we visit frequently are not participants of Delivery.com...yet.

 The first place we tried is called Wisey's located in Georgetown. We ordered two sandwiches for pick up and when we arrived they were already packaged in a bag and ready to go. Both sandwiches were absolutely DELICIOUS!

Sarah's Wrap: Grilled chicken,
roasted red peppers, lettuce,
cucumbers, goat cheese, tortilla points
and a splash of balsamic vinaigrette.
Steak and Cheese Deluxe Sub: Served with grilled onions and mushrooms, 
provolone cheese, with lettuce, tomato and mayo.

Delivery.com made it super easy to order our meals and have them ready as we swung by on the way home from work. Wisey's had everything we needed ready to go in the bag and there no signature for payment was necessary. Great experience all around!

We decided to try Delivery.com a second time to try out the delivery option, but unfortunately our address was not recognized. We put in a nearby address which allowed us to order for pick up.  
 We order some appetizers and subs from a local pizza place we hadn't tried before called Planet Pizza and Subs.When we tried to order, the website listed the bread choice oddly, adding double the price for a sub versus regular bread. It was not in line with the restaurant's prices. The restaurant called to ask us what was meant by the choices we clicked on the website, and a lengthy discussion followed, where we basically re-ordered our food on the phone. 



Overall, we were happy with Delivery.com. Our first experience was great and we found a cafe in Georgetown that we would have never known about otherwise. We would like to see more restaurants in our area participate in this website to make it more useful to us. It seems like some kinks need to be worked out here and there, we are definitely willing to give it a try again in the future.
