Race to your door: Many new food delivery apps now in San Antonio

Food delivery options

When it comes to getting food delivered to your door, you're not limited to just pizza anymore. One of the biggest apps, UberEATS, just launched in San Antonio on Wednesday.

Home delivery apps make it easy to get your favorite meal from your favorite local restaurants right at your doorstep. Hundreds of San Antonio restaurants partner with these apps.

Joe Gallero, a chef at Tre Trattoria, said that the apps are good for business. He said that they've already gotten several orders from UberEATS.

"We're getting a lot more to-go orders and a lot more feedback from the customers. They love it so far," he said.

KENS 5 put three of those home delivery services to the test. UberEATS, DoorDash, and Favor.

Favor allows you to get anything delivered, even groceries.

"I've run to the drug store, the grocery store. I've done a lot of food deliveries, all ages, all addresses," said Chris Van Wyk, a runner for Favor.

We ordered Pizza from Tre Trattoria restaurant on UberEATS and Favor.

DoorDash said that they didn't deliver as far as we wanted, so we ordered from Dough Pizzeria instead. All pizzas were $15 plus tax, and were ordered around the same time on Wednesday.

Favor arrived in 53 minutes, UberEATS arrived in 50 minutes, and Doordash arrived in about 35 minutes. However, since we ordered from Dough Pizzeria for Doordash, which is about eight minutes closer, we'll put them at about 43 minutes.

After a processing and delivery fee, Favor cost us a total of $23.45, although Favor does ask you to tip your runner after delivery.

UberEATS cost us $21.23 after a 4.99 booking fee. No tipping needed.

And DoorDash, after an included service fee and a tip, gave us a $5.99 discount, which put us at $21.26.

All of the apps track your order and allow you to contact your driver. They also alert you when your delivery has arrived.
