SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Guys, starve no more. The popular food delivering service, UberEATS has launched in Santa Barbara.

UberEATS launched on October 11 and offers full menu options from nearly 30 of Santa Barbara's most popular restaurant including South Coast Deli, On the Alley, Joe's Cafe, and Farmer Boy Restaurant.

The delivery service covers neighborhoods from Montecito to Goleta and Isla Vista. The UberEATS app is a free download available for iOS and Android devices, and has been built specifically to make getting great food as easy as getting a ride.

The service not only offers restaurants and customers convenience and reliability, but offers drivers within the Uber network more flexibility to make some extra cash.

Here's how UberEATS works:

  2. Login with your Uber account
  3. Find a restaurant you know and love, and pick what you want from their menu
  4. Pay with your credit card on file
  5. Watch as the order is picked up and delivered to you

"We're very excited to partner with Uber. We've been looking at food delivery services in this space now for over a year, and when we heard they were coming to the area, we were one of the first people to reach out and contact them about a possible partnership," said Ian Smith, President of Genuine Restaurant Concepts (GRC).

GRC operates Brophy Bros. Restaurant, On the Alley, Benchmark Eatery, Cliff Room, and Farmer Boy Restaurant.

"Our goal is to bring UberEATS to as many people as possible...we've slowly been expanding throughout all of Southern California and we felt that it was time to expand to Santa Barbara," said UberEATS Southern California General Manager Ben Story.

There is a flat delivery fee of $5.99 and the app offers the option to tip your food delivery driver.
