Some nights we don’t feel like going out for date night, or even really to grab food, but we’re also not motivated to make food of our own at home. Recently, some of the food delivery services started serving our area and I decided to try them out and see which ones were worth using. After all was said and done, I’ve found that Door Dash is the best bang for your buck, at least for our area of the county.

Why We Love Door Dash

Large Variety of Restaurants

When looking at all of the apps that deliver food to my house, and there are about five of them, Door Dash has the best options for restaurants that will deliver to me. They have everything from fast food, to casual sit down to some of our favorite date night restaurants. A few of my favorites have been removed in the last couple of months, but there are still a lot of great ones to choose from, especially when compared to the other apps that only give me one or two choices total, so I’m still a fan.

Available to Deliver Immediately

A couple of the apps that I tried always told me that the restaurant I wanted to order from was currently closed for delivery but that I could pre-order for he next day or a few hours from the time I wanted to eat. As much as I’d like it to be, our schedule isn’t always that predictable. We generally decide last minute that we want to order in, or make a plan to order as we’re putting the kids to bed, and who knows when that will be. #toddlers

Great Service

Each time I’ve ordered from Door Dash, I’ve had someone different deliver my order. It doesn’t matter where I order from or who drops it off at my door, I’m always happy with the service. The dashers have always been friendly and my orders have always been spot on.

Text Message Updates

I love the text updates I get letting me know when my food has been picked up and when my dasher is approaching my house. It helps me to know time wise when my food will arrive, and knowing that the dasher is arriving lets me know to be listening for the door and that it’s ok to open it even though I don’t recognize the person on the porch.
