    The Waitr App is live in The Houston Area. Available in the App Store and google play. Soon to have a browser version for computers and Windows devices.

    We are currently delivering in the Woodlands, CityCentre, Energy Corridor, midtown/Heights. And will soon be delivering in Lake Jackson, Spring, Tomball, Sugarland, over the next few months our operations will be expanding to Katy (don't evacuate yet!), Clear Lake, College Station, Conroe, Rice Village, La Porte, Pasadena, Deer Park and more!

    It's a great new way to browse menus with full photography. Pay securely from your phone for either takeout or delivery (Jerry Built will soon be using it for Dine In). Order as a group all from your own smart phones and pay only 1 delivery fee.

    Large photos from the app.

    Support a fellow Clutchfan and download the free App!!!

    Texans dammit!
    Full photography of the menu for starters. Menu and delivery time is controlled by the restaurant so less errors and quicker delivery time.

    I've eaten that Mel's burger in seven minutes. Not even joking. I was racing my cousin. It was really good, and they have a bigger one.


    I could never do that now.

    ive never tackled the big Mel. But I've had their normal sized burgers and they're great.



    Hungover today? The search feature is nifty. Search among all the restaurants in your area to find the item you're looking for.

    That looks great, congrats on the business venture.

    How does the delivery option work? Are you the one delivering? Is that why you drive so much? Am I asking too many questions?

    Soon. Houston is the first major market we've tackled. Once we have a stronger market share in the area we are expanding to Austin/SA Dallas/Fw.

    We still have tons of markets in Houston we haven't touched yet
    We have a network of scheduled drivers in every area we are live in. I'm in business development so my job is getting the restaurants on board. But whenever necessary I do make deliveries if we are short staffed in an area that day.

    Some markets have over 30 drivers working at a time.
    No. I'm not a cofounder. Company won a pitch contest and started in Lake Charles. I've just worked in sales/restaurants my whole life in the Houston area and was approached by Waitr 6 or so months ago to join the team.

    When they showed me the platform I was amazed at how advanced it was compared to the options we currently have in Houston and had to join in.
