Where to order food in Orlando when you're tired of pizza



When you think about calling for a pizza delivery for the fourth night in a row, your stomach might just jump out and stop you. But after you've pulled an all-nighter in the library (or the bar, hey, it's your life), the last thing you probably want to do is get your butt out of bed to claim some noms from the dining hall. Here are some places that will deliver more than just a generic pizza. The furthest you'll have to move is to your door, plus your stomach will thank you.

Doorstep Delivery


You have probably already heard of this service, which delivers nationwide, but did you know it was co-founded by a graduate of Rollins College? William Moore graduated from Rollins in 1999 and he helped launch this service, which delivers food from restaurants all over the region, in 2008. For a delivery fee (usually $3.99 to $6.99), Doorstep will deliver anything from the menus of participating restaurants listed on its website.

Highlights include: Jersey Mike's (subs), Friendly Confines (wings and pub grub), Whole Foods and more.



A $6.99 base delivery charge will bring more than two dozen restaurants to your door, thanks to Yelp's service Eat24. Delivery minimum is $13.

Highlights include: Black Bean Deli (Cuban cuisine), Tamarind (Indian cuisine) and Powerhouse Café (salads, healthy wraps and smoothies).
