A food delivery service from Uber is now cruising into San Diego’s North County.
The UberEATS app – which launched in parts of San Diego three months ago, offering food delivery from hotspots like Carnitas Snack Shack, Draft Republic and The Baked Bear – has expanded its service area to include Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas and Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Uber confirmed.
A spokesperson for UberEATS told NBC 7 some participating North County restaurants working with the delivery service include Del Mar Rendezvous, Handel's Ice Cream Encinitas, Milton's and EVE Encinitas.
The expansion comes with some extra perks for the palate, too, including deals, giveaways and exclusive menu items for North County customers all of this week.
This includes $1 tacos from select eateries on Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., $3 breakfast burritos Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., and free High Brew Cold Brew coffee Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For the full list of deals, click here.
When UberEATS launched locally in June, San Diego became the 11th city in the U.S. serviced by the food delivery app. Currently, the service is available seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m.
In addition to the North County expansion, the service area for the app runs from downtown San Diego to La Jolla, and from the beach to Interstate I-805, according to the company’s website.
Here’s how UberEATS works: Users download the app and add their delivery address. They can then choose from a list of participating San Diego restaurants offering full menus and place their order for direct delivery to their address. Uber says the delivery fee for UberEATS is a flat $4.99; prices for dishes vary by restaurant.
