Yet another delivery business with goofy delivery parameters.

I can use this to order from a restaurant across the street from my wife's office, 5 miles away from my office.

She puts in her address and gets a message that there are no nearby restaurants that they deliver from.

KC online menu looks good: Thai to Mexi to burgers to breakfast delivery...

Use it or lose it.


Anyone try this yet? I'm too far away.


I tried it earlier this week. They actually have a 'beta' program in KC, where you can sign up to be a tester: https://beta.clustertruck.com. I got approval to be a tester in a matter of hours, which was good for $15 of free food.

I think the food is fairly expensive for what you get. I got the black bean burger with tater tots, which ended up to be just shy of $15 (excluding tip) and the quality was just okay. I may try another dish since it would be pretty convenient while I'm at work. I was able to receive the food in under 30 minutes in the East Crossroads, so that was nice. I do like that they update you on the progress, kind of similar to dominoes website. The delivery driver was also friendly.


I finally tried it and this is basically my review too. The service was great and quick, but the food was just average for what you're paying. I hope they can make it because I'd definitely use it occasionally. But I have doubts.

For my delivery dollar, Grubhub remains the best. $2.99 delivery from KokoThai, usually in under 30 minutes. It's fantastic.

True, but worth the wait.

I just used grub hub for the first this past weekend for bay boy sandwiches and I loved it. They were very responsive and the restaurant ran out of something so grub hub called me for the change i wanted and they gave me a 5 dollar credit for the inconvenience.
I like postmates but its so damn expensive

I know! I got kokothai again last night and it was the same situation ~30 minutes. It's crazy.

P.S. I suspect this is why it takes so long at the restaurant....

Just did my first Grubhub order, and my first cancelation, and my first $5 apology credit. That said, I'm a dirty suburbanite and only have one place I can order from. So there's that.
