I’ve pretty much tried almost every local food app, and today I’ll be talking about and ranking the best Toronto food apps for delivery and pre-ordering food.
While I love to cook, sometimes I just feel like relaxing or getting things done while I wait for my food to get delivered to me.
I had a conversation awhile back with the owner of a popular Toronto restaurant, and he told me that half of their restaurant’s orders were now through food delivery apps!
With it being so easy to order pretty much any kind of food you want, it’s kind of tempting to just sit at home in your underwear rather than get dressed up to go out to eat.
Don’t get me wrong – I do enjoy going out to restaurants, but that pretty much only happens when the weather is nice out.
Anyway, here are my picks for the best and worst Toronto food apps!
The best Toronto food apps
The Skip the Dishes app has the best visual interface out of all of the Toronto food delivery apps.
You can see the delivery time, delivery fee, and rating of each restaurant all at a glance, and it’s visually appealing and not too cluttered.
I like how they give you the option to choose how much plastic cutlery you want, and if you’re ordering at home, you can write “none” in the special instructions.
The service itself is also very speedy!
I’d recommend ordering from Poke Guys or Mean Bao if you’re downtown.
You can get $5 off your first order of $15 using my discount code.
For those of y’all who love Asian food, you’ll love the selection on Chowbus.
One of my fave things about Chowbus is their bundling options, AKA you can order from nearby restaurants in a single order with no added fees!
You can get $10 off your first order using my code “JESSICA5”.
The best thing about UberEATS is being able to hop onto other people’s orders nearby and get free delivery, but tbh it’s not my favourite out of all these Toronto food apps.
They add “busy area” surge charges on top of the delivery fee if you live in a busy neighbourhood, which makes no sense if a cyclist (who can get to places much easier than a car) is delivering your food.
There’s also a “delivery tax” and I’m not sure how it’s calculated, but I don’t think there should be a $2 delivery tax on top of a $5 delivery charge along with a $16 surge fee.
I only ever order from UberEATS if other food delivery apps aren’t available where I’m ordering from.
If you want to try UberEATS, you can get $7 off your first order of $15 using my code “eats-4nci5”.
Ritual allows you to preorder food ahead of time so you can skip the lines.
The only problems I’ve had with it are ordering from the wrong restaurant location lol.
I love how there’s a points system to earn free food.
Plus, you can earn extra points doing certain activities!
They also have Eats Week every year, where you can get $1 meals at your fave spots. It’s amazing.
I’d recommend ordering from Tacos 101, Banh Mi Boys, and Buster’s Sea Cove.
You can get $10 off your first order using my code.
