Uber Eats

Great news for hungry residents on the Saanich Peninsula – you can now have your favourite restaurant eats, and have them delivered, too.

Popular food delivery service Uber Eats announced on Tuesday that they have expanded ther reach just north of Sidney stretching into Saanich, excluding an area west of John Dean Provincial Park.

The expansion comes after the service initially launched in Victoria in August of 2018, though residents outside of the main delivery areas have been impatiently waiting since then to enjoy food delivery, pick-up, and online ordering from the popular app.

Uber Eats connects with local restaurants to offer food delivery and pick-up so that people can get take-out from their favourite eateries.

On the Saanich Peninsula, some restaurants offering the service are Dickens Public House, the Surly Mermaid, and Woodshed Pizza, and the ever-popular Fish on 5th – home of the famed Disneyland Dole Whip.

To use the service, you can download the Uber Eats app, input your delivery address and browse restaurants within your area. Users can also track orders from pick up to delivery.

While Uber Eats is working on expanding its reach across the province, competitor SkipTheDishes has implemented a $1 temporary “B.C. Fee” for all users.
