The wait is finally over: The expansion of UberEATS is set to serve hungry Las Vegans. Uber’s version of a food delivery service app, which launched on September 7, features more than 200 restaurants from which locals can choose. As of now, the app services the areas around the Strip, Summerlin and parts of Henderson, but is set to expand to additional locations based on user demand. Prices of menu items are the same as in the restaurant, with an additional flat delivery fee of $4.99. And for a limited time, delivery fees will be waived to celebrate the launch of the app.
To use UberEATS, download the app and enter your address. Participating restaurants will pop up, with a search bar located at the top. Suggested searches ranging from comfort food to gluten-free alternatives give users an array of options. Once a restaurant is selected, the location’s entire menu is displayed with a detailed description of each item, the price and estimated time of completion. After the order is placed, the app allows you to track its status up until delivery. And just like Uber’s traditional car service, tips for the courier are optional.
