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!
Restaurant food delivery in SLC:
UberEATS – launches Wednesday 20th 2017 in SLC!
Grub Hub | A national operation that offer an iPhone and Android app for the truly couch embedded diner. The service operates seven days a week and hours are based around restaurant opening times. Delivery costs vary but expect to pay $2.99 for restaurants close to your location rising to $7.99-$9.99 for restaurants several miles away.
The app automatically updates you as your order is being prepared, and once it hits the road. At that time you can even track your driver on a live map, just like Uber and Lyft. You can tip your driver right in the app using a credit card, making hunting for change down the sofa a thing of the past.
I’ve used Grub Hub many times and have had nothing but great experiences.

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.
