do you like lukewarm food at 130% of the normal price,
delivered after 1+ hrs? order uber eats

pretty much....

depends on the time of day though. Sometimes if the
restaurant is close and things aren't busy you can get it
quite fast and hot.... but overall it can be pretty
disappointing

I used it once and it was all spilled in the bag. Never
again.

Wasn’t even aware of this service.

This type of service has been around for like 15 years in
some areas and it's always sucked in its various
permutations. The first one I had access to around '05 was
called "Doorstop Delivery", I think, and it was exactly as
you described, the one and only time I used it. Food cold,
130% price, delivered at glacial pace.

Show off!

So we’re talking Uber the “taxi” service?

Isn’t there an app dominating that market atm?

Haha, sorry! Oops, my comment wasn't specifically about Uber
(yeah, the "taxi" service), but rather just this particular
offshoot of Uber which is: you order food from a restaurant
and then a 3rd party goes there, picks it up, and delivers
it to you.

So, "Doorstop Delivery" was just the first version of that
business concept I encountered, but it wasn't affiliated in
any way with Uber Eats.

it can be good to find local restaurants, look at menus...
then, just pick the phone and call the place, boom, it's
there fast and hot. i take what uber would have charged and
give it to the guy as a tip, and feel better about every
aspect of the transaction, really. it was nice to dodge the
awkward negotiations for food with people that don't always
speak the best of the english, but it's far better than uber
eats. disruptive business models aren't always what their
ego tells them they are
