Grubhub: Local Food Delivery Reviews

    The app is better than the service

    I have used gh at least 20 times. The app is great, it always works. though it seems inconsistent from restaurant to restaurant in its menu application and usage -sometimes confusing what comes with an item. The service from grub hub employees hasn’t been bad, they tell me when there’s a problem and make it right, so I think the company seems to care (more than I can say for other food delivery services I’ve used which I won’t name here, but it starts with a U!) So I’m loyal to gh in my restaurant delivery patronage anymore. Now you just have to expect though, the restaurants sometimes have issues and cancel your order & your experience depends in large part upon the relationship between that restaurant and gh. Another factor- if you get a driver who treats your food and your time with respect, which isn’t usually a problem. The drivers usually call from the driveway, I don’t know why, most pizza places ring the bell. Sometimes the drivers forget food or spill it. hey this is going to happen if you order from gh 20 or more times. You take your chances, because you don’t want to cook so much, and you don’t want to go out into the public either. Thanks for being there most of the time gh when I’m not cookin’. And shout out to mr. gyro because he is consistently good & fast, never cancels.☮️

    Never using this service again

    I placed an order last night at 8pm. I was told the order would arrive at 9:30. After three calls, two text conversations and 5 hours later I never received my order. The first two conversations plus the first text conversation said the food would be delivered and remade and I was even told that they were in contact with the driver. By 1am I had had enough and I was very vocal with my frustration. The only compensation I was told I would receive was 10% off my next order and a refund. Great. My money back and an extra $4 next time I decide to use this service. I tried to explain that the compensation was very lackluster and I was unhappy with my situation, and the GrubHub person told me I should try ordering something else At 1:30am? Even after explaining how unrealistic this compromise was, I was told for the fifth time of the night that they were “sorry for my inconvenience” and asked what else they could do for me. Extremely unsympathetic and I will never use Grubhub again. You better hope you’re in a highly populated area. The order is confirmed no matter if there are any drivers in the area. If not, just be ready to accept an apology for an inconvenience. And as a side note. I would have driven to pick up my order if I was told it wasn’t coming. I know I’m paying at least a 20% mark up for the delivery. I’m tipping after that too. The point was I was told in multiple occasion it was coming, just a terrible delay. Ridiculous.

    Horrible service

    First off their GPS can never find my home. Every time the food comes late and cold/soggy. Second I bought $35 worth of food that was never delivered to my door even though they app said it was delivered. I went through their help service and the person told me since it says delivered they cannot refund the money to me but they could offer me a coupon for 10% off my next purchase. I said that I would either like my money back or the food that I ordered. Again they refused. Then I said I want to become a Grubhub driver, just check that the food was delivered, and eat for free all day. After some time the person agreed to give the full refund “as a courtesy”. When I asked why that is a courtesy and not a standard the person said they gave me the full refund and will not get the 10% off coupon that I never wanted. That person’s before I could answer said I was taking to long and hung up. The next person then said that the food was set for pick up not delivery. Once I told them in had proof otherwise they said it was my fault for not going out to the delivery person’s car to get the food. I did not order to walk out to some random person’s car I bought it to be delivered to the door. After realizing the person was just trying to give me the run around I ended the chat. On top of it all when I looked at the receipt Grubhub charged the restaurant for the refund even though it was their Grubhub driver that failed to do their job.

    Not happy...

    So today I ordered Taco Bell through Grub Hub (obviously). It was like my fourth or fifth time doing so, all of the other times were all good. But today I ordered it at 1:02pm and it usually takes less than 30 minutes for them to be at my house with my food. I noticed the time for my ETA was getting later and later, so I call and tell them what’s going on. I was super nice because accidents happen and I’m an understanding person. They tracked the driver and said I should get a call from them in the next ten minutes. Ok. I get text ten minutes later saying my food should be there around 2:17pm. Ok great. 2:30pm...still not here. I got annoyed and called again to cancel my order. All was fine, she didn’t seem very sorry but whatever. I’m probably not going to order again, just because getting my food isn’t guaranteed. The only bad part about all of this, is that I had a hungry two year old waiting for his food that never came. Of course I gave him snacks to keep him happy until his actual food came, but he needed a real meal. I couldn’t drive anywhere to get food because my baby was sleeping. Also I’m breastfeeding, so when you don’t eat for a while it messes with your milk supply. Once my baby woke up we went to DQ. Because we had a late lunch, that meant no nap, and because no nap, I couldn’t get my shower for today. So thank you grub hub for making me hungry and stinky. That is all. (I never write reviews, I honestly just want to know how this even happened.)

    No Guaranteed Delivery Driver

    Ordered my food on a Sunday morning at 8:00am. Estimated delivery time was 40-50 minutes. It came upon 50 minutes and the tracker still showed that the food was being prepared, along with adjusting the estimated delivery time to 10:00am. I called the restaurant and they told me the food had been ready for 20 minutes but nobody had showed up to pick up the food. The app, at least at this point, doesn’t say who the delivery driver is or allow you to contact the driver, if there even was one assigned yet. I called grub hub (very pleased they have customer service on a Sunday morning) and the first option they gave me was to wait for the food and if there was anything wrong with the food to call them back again and say there was something wrong with it (it was pancakes and eggs, chances are after them being ready for over an hour they would not be how anyone would want them to be). The second option was to just cancel the order and receive my money back in 3-5 business days (4-6 days with it being a Sunday). So then at this point, of course, I need to go find a different means of breakfast. While breakfast is not the biggest deal, this is not a pleasant way to start a Sunday, nor to have your one and only experience with Grubhub to tell your friends about. There are many good reviews out there about Grubhub, I just wish I had the same experience as the others.

    Continually frustrated

    So many frustrations with this company. One huge one is when my orders are randomly cancelled, but nobody lets me know for an hour. By the time I’m told I need to figure out different food everything is closed half the time. And it’s usually with no explanation. Delivery time is entirely unpredictable, it will give you an estimate that ends up being literally half of how long it actually takes. But one of the biggest complaints is price discrepancies. I’m not even talking about the ginormous delivery fees, but rather the difference I price of the actual food items as listed on Grubhub compared to the restaurant’s website. I only noticed this recently, but they often charge a higher price for the food itself than the restaurants, which seems so screwy. High delivery fees are one thing, but the food itself is more expensive too?? What?? And so very often my order is missing items or just wrong, so what was I even paying extra for? Lastly, they used to make up for some of these annoyances (at least in my head) with fairly frequent coupons, and that fun wheel thing you spun with every order. It doesn’t feel worth ordering anymore unless I have a coupon, but they took those away (except for the ones that you have to use within like 24 hours of receiving them, which I seem to only get after ordering when I’m not trying to shell out the delivery money twice in 24 hours) so I guess that’s that. Disappointed and hungry.

    Overpriced and ridiculous

    I ordered food from this app/service and noticed first that they charge an additional fee they don’t mention, which should’ve been my first red flag. But with a coupon on your first order, fine. It was $10 off, and yet I still paid a several dollars over my order subtotal(basically the tip). So it literally just covered the fees, which I was choosing a very close restaurant so it was the smallest delivery fee they charge. My order arrived nearly 20 minutes late and was missing THREE items. There’s not way to log a quick problem with your order like with other similar services so I had to contact their support. Who took at least 5 minutes to just “look up my order details” before even asking what I was missing. When I tell them my missing items they just say, “you’re all set! You’ll get an email for your refund. Is there anything else I can assist with?” Without telling me what the refund is or anything. The email comes and I see they only refunded me part of what was missing, for the the third item. When I asked they said it was “a free part of the order”. It wasn’t. It was part of my combo. They start to list off the prices of my combo items individually and this happened to be the “free” item in it, which is so ridiculous. It was food that was supposed to come as part of my meal, so I should’ve had something come off of the price of the combo. Needless to say, I will never use this app/service again.

    not user friendly

    The interface of this app is so painstakingly dumb. First of all, I live in a decent sized town, it’s not a major city but there’s a ton of restaurant options. With this grubhub app, those restaurants don’t even pop up when you search by category- you have to type in the restaurant name to get it to come up. I wonder if that’s some kind of under-the-table promotional idea Grubhub has with some restaurants. It’s moronic. This brings me to my next point of restaurants not showing up when they’re not open. I could care less if a restaurant was open to browse the menu!! For me, the app is rendered useless before 8AM, I cant do anything but look at the places I’ve ordered from in the past. The main screen literally just tells you to come back later. If this app is designed to help restaurants gain business and to link customers to places they may have never known existed, Grubhub is doing a pretty pisspoor job. I mean, at least have a live tracking option. On numerous occasions, drivers have had difficulty finding my place of work. Provide a better GPS interface and hirer smarter drivers who actually read the delivery instructions. Sidenote; even the fact that their ‘Leave Feedback’ option doesn’t bring you to the app store but asks you a survey-like question in which you have to choose from 3 options, goes to show how archaic their customer service is.

    WOW...slowest delivery EVER!!

    I don’t know how this gets such a high rating with all the negative reviews I see... Ordered for the very first time tonight at 4:45pm. They originally claimed a 40-50 min. delivery window. It just kept getting pushed back and back and back. I tried to contact Grubhub to see what on earth was going on over an hour later, but it just kept bouncing me back to the Order review page. I finally called the restaurant at 6:45 to see if my order had even been picked up yet, and they told me that a driver had JUST walked in. The food had been sitting there, getting cold, for well over an hour!! So then it was another 45 minutes after THAT before the driver pulled in my driveway...I was tracking his route and I have no idea why he went the way he went. He went MILES out of his way!! I don’t even know how he GOT to the area he was in!! So what should’ve been about a 15-20 min drive, took almost an hour!! I had preheated my oven because I just knew the food would be cold by the time we got it. And of course, it was. I’m an avid doordasher, and I have NEVER had even close to the delays or problems I had with this one first order of mine!! I’m sorry Grubhub....you guys take WAY too long with everything!!! Never again, unless I’m cool with waiting HOURS for food!! P.S. this was an over $65 order...at that rate I could’ve driven there myself in shorter time, or dragged my whole family out and we could’ve been in and out in shorter time!!

    Not using Grubhub again

    Really disappointed with the service I got today. I ordered food and received an update that it was delivered but I never received a phone call from the driver . I attempted to call the driver with the number the app provided but I would only get a me voice message to try calling the diner again (which had a different number so I thought that was weird). After multiple times I tried calling the place I order from in which they said they could not help me get in contact with the driver and that I would have to call Grubhub. While switching between apps I happened to open my email and saw an email saying the the driver attempted to call me (using an old number that was not set as my default on my account) and to call the number provided in the email to “avoid further delays from my food” . So I called and was told that the driver called, could not deliver so drove away and that I needed to update my account even though it was updated and my correct number was set as the default . They said they could not refund me and only offer my 50% off my next purchase which means nothing to me because at the end of night I ended up without my food and no solution offer to try to deliver it again and paying for something I did not received with no explanation on why my default number was not use to call me when it was never an issue in the past. Highly dissatisfied and deleting app.

    Absolute worst

    Worst customer service ever. The delivery ETA for my order kept changing every time I refreshed the page. When it got to an ETA of 45 min after the original ETA I called to find out what was going on. Customer service tried pinning it on the restaurant so I sat on hold while the rep called the restaurant. 14 min later she finally admitted that my food was in fact ready but they didn't have any drivers to pickup my food and had no idea how long it would be until they found someone. She told me I could cancel my order or wait. I asked if I could go pick it up myself and be refunded for the delivery charge and tip that I paid. She said she was taking care of that while we were on the phone and confirmed it was done before I hung up. I drove to the restaurant to pickup my food and as I am pulling in the parking lot, I get a text that my food had been picked up and was on its way to me. Called customer service back to confirm and told him about my previous conversation and he blamed it on a bunch of new employees. He offered me a discount on my next order and I told him to apply the discount to this order bc I won't be using them again. And asked again that they remove the delivery charge and tip bc the previous person failed to do so. Received an email receipt and was still charged the $9 tip despite me driving to pickup my own food and have it already be picked up. Finally after my 3rd attempt the charges were removed.

    Still not quite there...

    I use this app maybe a couple times a month at most when I don’t feel like cooking. The app itself is easy to use but the fulfillment of orders leaves much to be desired. Most of the time it takes much longer than is advertised (e.g. delivery time 45-55min has sometimes taken 90min), food has arrived barely warm despite coming from a few blocks away, drivers don’t know how to read maps (our condo complex is a little confusing but there are maps & they don’t bother looking - I’ve been called & expected to walk out to the front of my complex which I cannot do because I have a small toddler & probably ordered food vector was inconvenient to go out in the first place, & several drivers were rude or unprofessional. That being said, there have been a couple great driver & they have comped delivery fees or given ‘free next delivery’ codes when I’ve contacted the company but I don’t appreciate having to contact them with issues the majority of the times I’ve used the service. Hopefully hey can get it together & maybe take tips from Uber eats to have ratings for drivers separate from just rating the food. I still come back because of the restaurant selection in my area but always keep my fingers crossed that it will arrive in a reasonable time frame & be relatively hot still 😑

    Horrible

    Idk how this app is rated so high they must of paid someone to get app over 4 stars because EVERY time I’ve tried to use grub hub it takes atleast 2 hours to get the food. Not to mention they mess up the order almost every time. First time I ordered a simple pepperoni pizza. When I got the pizza it arrived an hour and 15 minutes past the expected time and the pizza was missing cheese. We called grub hub to let them know they said the wouldn’t refund the money because it was the restaurants fault. So called the restaurant and they told us it’s how the pizza was ordered thru grub hub. In the end I never got even a sorry nor a refund. About a year passes by and I decide to put some trust in grub hub and go for round two. And Again my cheesesteak I ordered came an hour and 15 min later the the expected hour wait. ( 2 hours and 15 min to get my food from a restaurant that’s 10 min away from my house) called and they told me sorry but some one had to physically go to the restaurant order the food, wait for it to be made then driver it. I called the restaurant and they said the didn’t even do business with grub hub any more because they made so many mistakes. WHY would grub hub still offer there food still. And if you do atleast give an accurate time table for delivery. WILL NEVER USE AGAIN Suggest you do the same! - Overpriced delivery/service fees - Horrible customer service - Extremely long delivery Times

    The worst App & delivery people!!!

    I’ve used the app several time and the delivery of the food was on time majority of the times I’ve ordered but my experience today was awful. I ordered my food at 12:00, with the delivery ETA of 12:45. I checked the status on my app and it said my food was delivered at 12:24. I spoke with customer service via chat and they stated they spoke with the delivery driver and he was three minutes away and my food would be delivered shortly. Another 30 mins went by no food. I called the restaurant this time and they stated my food was ready and had been siting there for 45 mins. I called GrubHub customer service to see what was going on, the customer service guy apologized offered me $10 off my next order and said he would call the driver. He got back on the phone and said he attempted to call the driver multiple times but the driver turned off his phone. I was outraged, the customer seemed rep gave me two options, cancel order for a full refund or have them deliver my order that has been sitting there for an hour at this point. GruHub offered new real solutions and it was almost 2:00 by this time and I was starving!!! I deleted the app, and never downloading again!!! I’ll stick to Eat24, at least on their app, I can call the driver directly and if something like this happens they still deliver the food and provide a full refund, now that’s true customer service. I guess I’ll go make lunch now.

    If I could give 0 stars I would

    I place an order and get an estimated delivery time of 30-40 minutes later. It says the restaurant is preparing my food. Well 30 minutes passes and it still says that they are preparing it but now I have a delay and it’s gonna be another 20-30 minute wait. 20 minutes later I get another delay for 20-30 minutes but it still says the restaurant is preparing my food. I call the restaurant to find out why the hold up is and they tell me that my name and order has not even arrived in their system for them to prepare. I call grubhub customer service and you tell me that the order has been confirmed by a driver but apparently that is a lie because the restaurant does not even have it! You can’t contact the driver so you just tell me you’ll have them contact me. I don’t want to talk to the driver. I want you to put my order in the system and the restaurant make my food and it get delivered to me without an hours worth of delays because your driver is sitting around doing nothing. And then on top of that my order gets messed up because your driver can’t seem to actually read the order correctly. I quit using your services for 5 months because of these constant problems. Now I use it again and clearly you have not fixed a single thing!! Fix your broken system and then maybe you will be worth a 3 star review but I highly doubt you’ll be worth a 5 star review!
