Have you ever had one of those weeks where you feel like you're racing against the clock? Time just doesn't seem to be on your side and it just feels impossible to get everything done. For a 20-something like me with a full-time job and lots of other hobbies keeping me busy, I've been feeling the time crunch lately (I don't know how people with kids do it!), and so when the folks at Foodler, a convenient online delivery and takeout service, offered me a credit in exchange for reviewing them, I was thrilled! I'd heard great things about the site and was psyched to place my first order.
I'll admit, the reason why I had never opted to try third-party food delivery services in the past was because I just didn't understand the point of paying more for food that I could just as easily order from the restaurant directly.
I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Foodler didn’t cost more, however! The cost of delivery depends on the restaurant and its distance from your address. I ordered a few california rolls from Fins Sushi and Grill, which is located nearby my address, so the delivery fee was the same as if I had ordered from them directly. I was also excited to find that Foodler offers delivery from restaurants that do not offer delivery services themselves, like Panera, or from restaurants where your address falls outside of their delivery area.
The website was very user-friendly and is packed with tons of useful information. It can divide restaurant options by type, cost, rating, distance and delivery fee. It keeps track of the restaurants you have ordered from and makes suggestions based on your delivery history. It even offers rewards points and delivery scheduling options! I decided to place my sushi order around mid-afternoon for 7:15 p.m. that evening. The order was delivered right on time! It was great knowing that as soon as I got home from my post-work gym session, I would have some delicious sushi waiting for me.
All in all, Foodler was simple, convenient, prompt and the food was fresh and delicious! The next time you feel like ordering in, definitely give Foodler a try!
