Dallas now has a bevy of services that offer the convenience of home delivery for things of all kinds – think DoorDash, Caviar, and Amazon’s Prime Now. Prime Now has long been delivering grocery items and other sundries in Dallas, but tomorrow, the retail giant will officially make its entrance into the city's increasingly competitive restaurant delivery market.
Starting today, Amazon Restaurants has officially launched in Dallas. The service offers one-hour delivery from some of Dallas’ best restaurants, including Kenichi, Luscher’s Red Hots, and Ellen’s Southern Kitchen, for Amazon Prime members. At present, more than thirty local eateries, ranging from macaron shops to health food spots, have signed on to be part of the service.
There’s one feature that makes Amazon Restaurants particularly unique – outside of the $100 fee that you pay to enjoy that free two-day shipping and other perks, delivery is free. Compared to other services, where fees range from $1.99 to $6.99 that’s a pretty substantial savings. Dallas makes the 10th city for the service, which currently operates in Austin, San Diego, Portland, and other cities across the country.
Amazon Restaurants can now be accessed via the PrimeNow app on your Android or iPhone, or via the new Prime Now website. Go forth, and never leave the house ever again.
