Hunger hits, the cupboards are bare and the thought of getting presentable and heading out the door is unthinkable; we’re not going to judge, we’ve been there too. Sometimes the only option is to act like an emperor and demand food be brought to your presence.
Thankfully, food delivery in Salt Lake City is no longer simply a choice between pizza and Chinese food (not that they aren’t still great options!); today there exists a bevy of useful third parties who will bring practically any cuisine, right to your doorstep; of course there’s usually a small fee to pay too, but when the mood hits, who cares, show me the food!

Some cool restaurants that deliver in Salt Lake City
New Golden Dragon – One of my own staple restaurants to order delivery food in Salt Lake City from. Great Chinese cuisines that offers standard Americanized fare everyone will enjoy but also plenty of more exotic selections. My personal favorite? The funky and aromatic Salted Fish and Chicken Fried Rice.
