Most Popular Delivery Picks of 2018

This year’s biggest food trends.

From Seattle, Washington, to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida—and 375 cities in between—our drivers were busy in 2018! They hustled scrumptious food from more than 11,000 restaurants to the doors and desks of thousands of hungry Americans.

Throughout the year, we saw some interesting ordering trends across the country. A southern favorite, collard greens, became the hottest new craving in Minneapolis, Minnesota, while down south in Gainesville, Florida, gator dishes grew in popularity by almost 700 percent!

Nationwide, we watched wings climb the charts to number one, while salad orders took a nosedive following November’s romaine lettuce recall. And the #1 holiday for delivery? Date-night in was a big hit on Valentine’s Day!
