GrubHub, an online food delivery and ordering company, just dropped an Android application into the Market. The app lets you find out which restaurants in your area deliver and place an order online or over the phone. Here are the areas with current GrubHub coverage:

  • New York
  • Chicago
  • San Francisco
  • Oakland
  • Boston
  • Los Angeles
  • Washington DC
  • Philadelphia
  • San Diego
  • Seattle
  • Portland
  • Denver
  • Boulder

According to the application description, this translates into support for over 13,000 menus.

GrubHub founders have this to say about themselves:

Founded in 2004, GrubHub is the number one place on the interwebs to find out who delivers to you and allows you to order food online. The two founders, Matt Maloney and Mike Evans, were two software engineers in Chicago who found themselves working late one night, lamenting the lack of web sites that would tell them every restaurant they could order from.

They wrote the first business plan on a mustard-stained bar napkin over cold drinks, and ever since then, we’ve been a company whose sole vision is to be the best destination for ordering food online. We’ve grown enormously over the past few years from just two to almost 50 employees, secured two rounds of funding from venture capital firms and several angel investors, and have expanded service to over thirteen cities— and counting…

We have some amazing plans in store for the next year and hope you’ll dig them as much as we do.

Cheers,
GrubHub

    nice-looking app, but I still prefer foodgetters.com ...

    this app is essentially a browser that loads grubhub.com/android as the home page...kind of lame.

    I used this app and inputted my credit card and that very day my card was hijacked and purchases were made that I did no initiate. Could be a security leak with the phone itself but after I notified my bank, I removed the GrubHub app and probably won't be using any app that makes me input my credit card info.

    I ordered via the GrubHub website from a restaurant just down the road using my VISA debit card, and the following morning I got a call from my credit union asking about 3 charges that had been made, and all of them turned out to be fraudulent.

    The person used my name, address, phone number, and card number, but their own email address (likely just a temporary one.) I got the person's email address and IP from one of the companies this person tried to buy from, but when my fiance tried to trace the IP it bounced all over, so he/she knew what they were doing.

    A few days later, my fiance's debit card was also compromised. We think the hacker may have put something on my computer that searched our home network and found his card info coded somewhere from previous online transactions.

    Lesson learned: call the restaurant to order food. Don't order using GrubHub because their website is not secure. I have since changed all of my card numbers, my phone number, and my email address to prevent this from happening again in the near future.
