Since its release in 2004, GrubHub has revolutionized the way people order food from their mobile phones. One of the original food-delivery apps and easily the most user-friendly, GrubHub makes it easy to order great meals from that new place down the street, or from your favorite local standby. By partnering with restaurants throughout the U.S., GrubHub offers full menus, images of dishes and accurate reviews.

How Does GrubHub Work?

Say you want to grab some tacos from your favorite taqueria a few blocks over. Just open the GrubHub app, type “Tacos” into the search bar (or use the “express reorder” feature, if you’ve ordered from them before), select the meal you want, input your payment method and wait for the food to show up at your door. It’s that simple!

After your order is placed, GrubHub offers all sorts of convenient, user-facing features, including real-time order updates via push notifications, options to rate and review your favorite places, and GrubHub eGift cards.

Why do People Love it?

While GrubHub is attractive on many levels, its biggest draw is its simplicity. Users say the app “flows very smoothly” and that it’s “simple to use.” 

Designed to remember your preferences, save your payment information, and store your home or work addresses, GrubHub is dedicated to making the food-delivery process as streamlined as possible, and it succeeds in spades. 

The app currently boasts about 8.75 million active diners and 267,500 daily grub orders. It also offers access to more than 50,000 restaurants throughout the U.S., located in more than 1,000 cities.
