Launched in Melbourne in April 2017, Uber Eats is a mobile, standalone app that allows you to order takeout food from your favourite restaurants and have it delivered to you by an Uber Eats delivery person.
There are more than 100 restaurants signed up in Melbourne, ranging from Vietnamese restaurants to seafood and Tex-Mex. Melbournians clearly love their burgers, as this is the most popular cuisine with 12 choices in total. Foodie suburb Fitzroy has an impressive 29 restaurants involved, while the CBD has 24.
Here's how it works: You download the Uber Eats app for free to your Android or iPhone and enter your physical address. The app will provide you with a list of all participating restaurants in the area.
The service is open 24 hours a day. Once you've found your restaurant of choice, check for Uber Eats promo codes so you can save on your meal. Browse the menu and select the food you want to order by swiping the items into your cart. When you're ready to complete the order, pay with your Uber account.
Once the order is complete, you can track it using the app as your meal is prepared and picked up. When the Uber Eats driver picks it up, your app can track its progress as it will display a grid map connecting your location to the restaurant. The GPS in the driver's phone will show you the driver's progress and give you a constantly updating estimated time of arrival.

What is the most expensive order ever placed on Uber Eats Melbourne?
In December 2017, an Uber Eats user in Melbourne ordered $1,570 worth of food, $600 of that coming in caviar, from Entrecote. The order consisted of eight gourmet cheeseburgers, seven servings of smoked salmon, seven steak sandwiches, six bombe alaskas and $600 of Beluga caviar.
Do I need to tip my Uber Eats delivery driver?
The decision to tip your Uber Eats delivery driver is entirely up to you. The drivers receive funds for picking up and dropping off orders as well as for each mile driven between the restaurant and your location, but Uber Eats takes a portion of those funds for its own coffers. If you feel that a driver has gone above and beyond and deserves a tip, you can reward them by adding a tip to their account after the delivery has been made. Uber Eats drivers keep 100% of the amount tipped; Uber Eats does not take a percentage.
