Impatient Lazy People Can Now Track the Progress of Their GrubHub Orders

Following a similar service from Dominoe's Pizza, GrubHub has a new feature called "Track Your Grub." As the name implies, you'll now be able to track your order every step of the way.


Is there anything worse than the long wait for your food delivery? Sure, you got a vague "delivery window" in a confirmation email after sending your order off into the Internet ether, but how will you ever occupy your mind until it's delivered. I'm hungry NOW! Where is my freaking food?

GrubHub has you covered. In addition to a standard confirmation email, GrubHub will also send you real-time SMS notifications when the restaurant starts working on your order as well as when the food is going out for delivery. Thank you for rewarding my impatience GrubHub. Your move Seamless. [GrubHub]


Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

So do they just use estimates or does it require each individual restaurant to start participating in giving updates. I could see many restaurants in my area not having time to do this real time updating.
