UberEats, the personal driving app's restaurant delivery service, unleashes its standalone app in Austin today. The app also expands beyond lunch, delivering meals between 8 a.m. to midnight every day. Users will download the separate app, use their Uber log-in, and place orders.
The delivery service area expanded to keep up with the demand, six times bigger to include areas within 183, Loop 360, and 71 like Mueller, Rollingwood, and Windsor Park. Almost 100 restaurants are now participating, including Unit D Pizzeria, Freedmen’s, and Jacoby’s Restaurant and Mercantile.
There are still daily highlighted dishes from specific restaurants available through instant delivery, like when Kyoten before it opened last fall. Per order, delivery fees are about $5. Other restaurant delivery services in Austin include Favor, Amazon Prime Now, and PostMates.
