UberRush, the ride-sharing company's food delivery service, is still only active in San Francisco, Chicago and New York, sorry to say. The good news is that it's no longer limited to the small group of establishments that tested it. Now, any restaurants in those three locations can sign up to be part of the service, according to Eater. Uber's partner delivery platform ChowNow customizes ordering apps for each restaurant, allowing them to tweak options based on what they're selling.

If a business doesn't want a particular item in their menu to travel for over 15 minutes because it'll melt or wilt, for instance, it could set a delivery radius. While you can't expect to order a delicate chocolate dessert from a restaurant from the other end of the city, you at least don't have to worry about having to buy during peak hours: UberRush doesn't have surge pricing.
