  • VERY Hit or Miss


    By PeachTheTeach
    We have ordered from this app several times. Sometimes it’s okay, although it seems like on every order the delivery time gets extended from what they originally tell you (for example it was supposed to take 40 minutes but it actually took 50-60). This happens a lot which in my opinion is not a good business practice. There have been several times (including right now) where the driver seems to sit in one spot and stay there until AFTER the delivery window. And then eventually they get to the restaurant to pick up the food. Because of this many times our food will arrive cold or soggy. This has happened with multiple drivers in our area, so often that we have started using other apps over Grubhub. Also for whatever reason, the app GPS never gets the address right. Usually it’s not a problem but one delivery we had a driver get very lost and couldn’t tell me where he was, and then had the nerve to tell me that it was MY fault that the address was “wrong” or hard to find. I get it, these are tough times especially for delivery drivers and such. But that doesn’t excuse bad business practices, not holding drivers accountable, and a really bad working app. It seems like many other people have had similar problems that date back 1-2 years, which means that higher ups don’t value feedback or just aren’t in the business for customer satisfaction. I’m sorry if it sounds harsh but it seems to be the truth.
  • The app is better than the service


    By Classtaker
    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.☮️
  • Depends on the area


    By igraine.convery
    I have been using GH for many years now and have lived in/ ordered GH from many different towns and states. I have noticed that in some areas, especially when it’s closer to the city there are less problems with orders. I just moved to a more suburban area further from the city and the drivers seem to not be as caring or attentive. One time I ordered food and realized after I ordered that the restaurant was closed! It was pretty late at night so I had to quickly find another restaurant to order from. My order was never canceled and the app even said that my food was delivered. I had to call customer support the next day and ask for a refund. Even they were confused because in the system it says it was delivered. The only explanation I can think of is that the driver still put in that he/she delivered the food. It was pretty frustrating. Unfortunately this is not the only incident that has occurred like this. I have actually intentionally avoided using GH since living in this area and now use the online ordering systems of local restaurants to place an order. Sometimes I even just call them to place an order if they offer delivery. I also feel good contributing to the profits of local businesses rather than a huge company like GH. GH can be very convenient but unfortunately the number of bad experiences has outweighed it’s worth. Sorry GH.
  • Never using this service again


    By I just wanted my wings
    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.
  • Two strikes, might not get a third


    By Merp8472619484628
    Today was my second horrible experience. Driver parks in a parking lot around the corner for 20 minutes, then marks my food delivered. I texted the fake phone number they get 4 times and called it about 5 or 6 with no response. Call customer service, at first they tell me I don’t exist in their system using the phone number I was calling from, after telling me the wrong number 3 times. Once the guy miraculously finds my account he says it was delivered. I tell him it wasn’t and explain that the driver literally sat in an empty parking lot and he offers me $5 dollars for a $9 meal. I told him no thanks and I hung up. I called back to get another person. They call the driver after managing to find my account instantly and the guy said he was calling a number (mine but all out of order) and that he delivered it on my houses doorstep... I was ordering from the bowling alley I work at... After saying I can send proof the driver basically stole my food and refused to contact me, the offer changed to $25 dollars. I’m giving one more order to use it and then I probably won’t use the service again. Foch from Portland, ME, I hope you enjoyed my Applebee’s and that tip you didn’t deserve. Tip for Grubhub, add a rating system for drivers, I have a ton of friends who have all had a similar experience. If I could report a driver and rate him this review wouldn’t be written, just a bad one for him.
  • How on earth do they have 4.8 stars?!


    By Ellemno
    The quality of Grubhub must depend on the area because we have NEVER had a smooth delivery with them, yet we’ve never had any issues with UberEats or DoorDash. Grubhub is HORRIBLE. Food arrives super late if it ever arrives at all! One driver apologized profusely stating that her COMPANY credit card had been denied upon paying for our food at the restaurant so she had to wait 45 minutes for customer service to assist her. Thankfully, she insisted that the restaurant remake our food so it would be warm for us. We’ve waited & waited for several orders & called customer service to find out what the hold up is, only to have our orders CANCELED in which “no further information as to why, can be given at this time, but we apologize for the inconvenience.” Seriously?! I’m pregnant, I have a 2 year old & when I order food for delivery, it’s not because I’m lazy, it’s because I’m having a moment of desperation & a NO SHOW order is NOT cool. Some of our favorite restaurants have switched to Grubhub & I’ve told them all of our horror stories & they’re seriously thinking about going back to UberEats or DoorDash. If you’re not able to be consistent in certain areas Grubhub, you’ll only damage your rep & lose clients. If you’re not ready &/or equipped to deliver in our area, pull yourselves until you are!
  • Not happy...


    By javevwhirro
    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.)
  • Horrible service


    By Ethan_xander
    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.
  • Love .... but...


    By Nrock1983
    This app is the best however there is one major glitch. If you Open a restaurant and start to place an order and then for some reason have to do something else on your phone such as received a phone call or send a message, when you go to go back in to GrubHub your order is completely gone. It in NO WAY saves your order to you bag. This has been a large inconvenience a few times. Also it doesn't often seem to be very convenient way to add extra small things that aren't always automatic optional extras. Like if you want to add peppers to your soup ( a cheap but important add for some) and you have to message in the comment you then and hope that they add it and possibly price adjust your order. The thing that the app is outstanding. I use it constantly. Not to mention their customer service is amazing! Recently we were missing an addition to a main dish that was supposed to be together. Not only did grandpa take it upon themselves to send out the missing item they re-ordered the main dish for us so that everything could be hot and fresh together. That will ALWAYS fix problems above and beyond. That's why I will continue to always use them.
  • Continually frustrated


    By Izzlefoshizzlemanizzle
    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.
