Caviar provides foodies with photos of every item on a restaurant’s menu, so they can decide what they want to eat a lot faster. Users can schedule food delivery up to a week in advance.

You can also leave notes to the chef, mentioning any special request you might have (ex: don’t add vinegar to the salad). Naturally, there’s a live order tracking option, as well.
Another app that lets you order more than meals. Studying for an exam and need your supply of chips and ice cream replenished? Open up goPuff and in 30 minutes you should be hearing from your goPuff shopper.

Eat24 uses information from Yelp (user reviews and recommendations) as the backbone for its food-ordering service.
Thus the app will let you sort restaurants based on distance, rating, delivery time and more, to make sure you won’t have a disagreeable experience. Eat24 is also focused on healthy eating by employing something called the Healthy Filter, which lets users focus more on items from the food pyramid.
Eat24’s CashCoupon reward system allows users to cash back for future orders. Fun!
