A popular ride sharing service will now also deliver food directly to your doorstep.

Uber announced this morning that it has expanded its UberEATS app in to Queens for the first time, covering Astoria, Long Island City, and Sunnyside.

The app has partnered with 30 local restaurants, and will deliver food ordered through the UberEATS app or on their website, expanding the reach of certain restaurants in to new neighborhoods.

The service is available from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. every day, and carries a $2.99 delivery fee, but similarly to the ridesharing service, tipping is not required and users can rate their experience after delivery.

In celebration of the expansion in to Queens, Uber is offering $15 off of the first order through the app until next Monday, using the code LETSEATQNS15.

A spokesperson for the company did not answer questions regarding the expected amount of use of the app in the area or future plans for expansion, but only referred to the FAQ page on the company website.

The full list of restaurants available in Queens is:

  • Buttercup Bakeshop

If Uber is taking a cut from the restaurants, then this will ultimately lead to higher prices. I’d rather pay the delivery guy directly.

But what’s going to happen to the illegal alien guys who illegally zoom around the neighborhood on their equally illegal electric scooters?

They will deported once trump becomes President. No more slave wages so that lazy people now have to cook at home or go to the restaurant and eat.

People would riot if food was not delivered. It’s unconstitutional. NYC amended the US constitution to include the rite to have food delivered 24/7.
