Umami Burgers Can Now Be Delivered To Your Door By Amazon Prime
Amazon will now deliver burgers, cupcakes and more from some of your favorite L.A. restaurants within an hour.Amazon Prime Now, the company's one-hour delivery service, is now delivering from select restaurants around the city, reports the L.A. Times. Depending on your zip code, you can order up burgers and fries from Umami, brisket from Baby Blues BBQ and cupcakes from Sprinkles. Restaurant delivery through the service will be free for a limited time, according to the Times. You can also get groceries in an hour from places like 99 Ranch, Bristol Farms and Sprouts.
The service is currently offered mostly on the Westside—including Santa Monica, Culver City, West L.A. and Venice—but is expected to expand to other areas in the coming days, according to GeekWire. Amazon first launched the restaurant delivery service in Seattle and Portland in September and they're now gradually unrolling the service in select cities.
The restaurant delivery service is available to Amazon Prime members and can be ordered through the Prime Now smartphone app. Through the app you can track your delivery and see the progress of your driver.
