If you’re craving something from a restaurant that isn’t available in your area, Uber Eats’ new nationwide delivery service may be able to help.
The food delivery service, which dates back to 2014, was previously limited to restaurants within bike/car distance of your home. With this new delivery option(Opens in a new window)however, you can choose from a selection of restaurants across the country that will ship your order.
In the Uber Eats app, select the domestic shipping tile. Choose a restaurant, choose your current craving, confirm your order and voila. You will receive a tracking number from FedEx and can expect your order to arrive within 5-7 business days.
The selection is currently quite limited; only 15 merchants are available for delivery nationwide, including Waffles and Dinges in Brooklyn, Bludo’s BBQ in Los Angeles and George’s Stone Crab in Miami. The 15 restaurants are based in California, New York and Florida, so if you’re craving Louisiana donuts or Maine lobster, you’ll still have to shell out for a plane ticket.

The move comes weeks after Uber Eats launched two autonomous delivery pilots in Los Angeles with Serve Robotics and Motional. For those dining in person with friends, the service added bill splitting in March.
