I've never really verbalized it but here goes: I dislike calling for food deliveries.
There, I said it.
I love eating, I love the convenience of having someone else cook for me but that bit in between (the ordering and junk) I can't stand it. I will cop to some user (mine) error but there are times when I call and make special requests and the meal is delayed due to the requests not being included, a misinterpretation of a food thing or just something that's off.
When fellow blogger, Jo-Lynne S, asked me to review Foodler I was sold on the idea of online ordering.
From their website:
What is Foodler?
Foodler Gives You:
Last week The Bee and I tried out Foodler and, without gushing, we give it a thumbs up. Registration was easy and for our honest review we were given a small stipend in "Foodler" bucks to use as we wished. Foodler bucks are like a sort of gift certificate good for ordering from the site. We reviewed the variety of restaurants and chose to order in Chinese from a restaurant we've passed but have never ordered. The menu was easy to access and select from with options for special requests.
As we ordered we were able to keep track of our spending with a helpful running tab in a box on the side listing the order. Delivery costs and taxes were included to avoid any unnecessary surprises at the end of the order. There is also an estimated delivery time available so that we knew when to expect our food. The site also shows discounts and specials from the different restaurants and the discount or special that will help save the most money is selected for you as you order.
The only nitpicky thing I can offer is that not all restaurants in the area are listed. This may just be a perfect way to get out of your restaurant rut (like me) and try something new.
I enjoyed my experience and will alternate Foodler listed restaurants with my normal haunts. The prices are similar and I've just found out that there are restaurants near my college gig available for delivered orders! This means no more long hungry shifts or junk food runs.
Take out or delivery is so simple! Plug in your information on Foodler.com and see what's available.
Getting ready for dinner,
