UberEATS launches in Little Rock

Just as Gusano's owner Tim Chappell told the Times a while back when he was talking about his plans to open The Shack in the River Market district, UberEATS, the food delivery service, launched today in Little Rock. A press release from the company said you can use UberEats to have food delivered from dozens of Little Rock eateries.

You can order either by downloading the free UberEATS app or going to the UberEATS webpage. You'll create a sign-in (your Uber app will work), open a restaurant link (which shows the prices of the food and expected delivery time) and order. We chose Skinny J's just for the heck of it and went to checkout to determine the booking fee (it seemed to be the only way): It's $4.99. The first order by app is free; promo code is littlerockeats.

A visit to the website shows 16 participating restaurants in the neighborhood of 201 E. Markham (Eat Arkansas's headquarters), among them Dugan's Pub, Hawgz Blues Cafe, Skinny J's, Stratton's Market and Mexico Chiquito. The press release noted that Star of India and 610 Center are also participating. There are also national chains participating, including Slim Chickens and Captain D's.

The website's a wee glitchy (it seems once you open uberEATS from your computer, you'll always go to the last address you put in, and if you type in Minnesota, for example, you'll get NYC suburbs), but it works well enough. It also includes food by category as well address, so you can look up Irish or Wings or Japanese, etc., to find the meal you want.
