Remember when pizza and chinese food were your only delivery options? Today, food delivery is crazy popular thanks to apps like DoorDash and GrubHub which allow you to order food from virtually any restaurant and get it delivered to your doorstep.

Suddenly, Golden restaurants that never delivered are only a few taps away. Burritos, salads, steaks, ice cream, burgers, lattes – BAM! … straight to your door.

Here at Golden Group, we’ve tested the major delivery apps to see who offers the best user experience and widest selection of restaurants. Each app is slightly different but they all provide the same dead-simple concept: search nearby restaurants, place your order, pay online and wait for your doorbell to ring.

Read on for a quick summary of each app and see which restaurants are included.


DoorDash is America’s most popular food delivery app, offering 110,000 menus from local eateries to national chains. Both its website and app provide an easy ordering experience, complete with real-time order tracking and fast delivery speeds. As you swipe through available restaurants, you’ll see the delivery fee (if applicable) and estimated delivery times. All payments and tips are handled at checkout.

GrubHub is another can’t-go-wrong option for food delivery or pickup. We like how the app allows you to see delivery options for your address before asking you to register. Alongside the list of available restaurants you’ll see precise wait times, user ratings and intuitive filters to narrow your options. Once you pick a restaurant, dishes are listed by popularity and include photos to help you decide what to order.
