The Best Meal Delivery Services for Pittsburgh Reviewed

1. Factor – Best for Delicious Microwave Meals in Pittsburgh

Factor's Cavatappi & Italian Pork Ragu

Key Features

Factor is a prepared meal delivery service that takes prep and cooking off your hands. Each meal comes in single servings in microwave-safe containers. Dishes only need between 3 and 5 minutes in the microwave. Easy-peasy!

What’s on the Menu?

Most recipes follow a classic formula of lean protein, complex carbs, and fresh vegetables. However, this doesn’t mean that the menu is boring. As my colleague mentioned in their tested Factor review, many of the meals are inspired by international cuisines like Italian, Thai, Chinese, and Mexican.

The menu also includes delicious American-based dishes, tweaked to better suit a healthy lifestyle. Recipes like Southwestern Black Bean, Corn & Quinoa, or Herb Grilled Chicken have less than 600 calories but retain the authentic American cuisine style. So you can enjoy the dishes you like without worrying about your weight too much.

Factor’s impressive add-ons menu is also worth checking out. It’s packed to the brim with convenient breakfasts, lunches, cooked protein, healthy desserts, juices, smoothies, and shakes.

What Makes It Special?

Your meals are cooked by professional chefs working with registered dietitians to create nutrient-rich and healthy recipes. Also, Factor’s menu caters to several dietary needs, such as high-protein, calorie-smart, keto, vegetarian, vegan, and flexitarian.

All the ingredients are fresh and carefully selected for maximum flavor and nutrients. Whenever possible, Factor uses organic ingredients (especially produce and eggs), and every dish is GMO-free. Poultry is antibiotic-free and raised cage-free, and all the meats are grass-fed and/or pasture-raised.

You can get a free session with a licensed dietitian. This service has a diverse team of experts, and you can connect with a specialist tailored to your unique dietary needs. If you like the support you get, you can sign up for additional sessions.

Is It Good Value?

Factor's recipes are designed with nutrition in mind, ensuring that every meal you consume is well-balanced. This is thanks to the guidance of expert nutritionists. Unlike many prepared meal delivery services, Factor prides itself on delivering fresh meals. These typically stay fresh for up to 7 days, which is another standout feature of this provider.

Factor is a bit on the steep side, with prices starting at $10.49 per serving. This price is available for the maximum order, which is 18 meals per week. The minimum order is 6 meals per week, and according to Factor, the most popular plan is 10 meals per week.

2. Green Chef – Best for Healthy Meal Prep Kits with Unique Flavors

Green Chef's Sesame-Ginger Shrimp Bowls

Key Features

If you’re looking for healthy meal kits and nutrient-rich foods, Green Chef is a great option. All the recipes include lean proteins, whole grains, and veggies, so each meal is well-balanced.

What’s on the Menu?

The menu features a mixture of American and international cuisines, with options for various dietary preferences. Our reviewer was impressed with how the recipes turned out when they gave Green Chef a try at home. There’s a well-stocked add-on menu to help fill in any gaps. Order protein packs, breakfasts, salads, and more.

Most kits on the menu are easy to make and are ready within 20 to 35 minutes. There are a few recipes that require a bit more time and recipes that’ll only take 10 minutes (look for the 10-Min Lunches tag). If you’re pressed for time, it’s easy to avoid the longer recipes since you can see the prep time for each while browsing the menu.

Green Chef uses clear tags to help you quickly identify suitable meals. Choose Gluten-Free options if you need to avoid gluten, select Keto-tagged dishes for a keto diet, or explore Gut & Brain Health-tagged recipes for high-fiber meals.

What Makes It Special?

The company works hard to deliver organic fresh produce, eggs, and some proteins (such as beef, chicken, and wild-caught seafood). Whenever organic options aren’t available, Green Chef makes sure to source conventional ingredients of the highest quality. All the animal proteins used for these meal kits are raised according to high animal welfare standards.

People with celiac disease or gluten intolerance can trust Green Chef’s thorough process. The company was among the first meal delivery services to receive a certification from the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) for its Gluten-Free plan. All recipes in this plan are prepared and packed separately from the rest of the recipes to avoid cross-contamination.

Is It Good Value?

Green Chef caters to health-conscious individuals with its delicious and nutritious meals. It sources top-quality ingredients from trusted and verified providers. And many of its meals feature unique sauces and spice blends. 

At $9.99 per serving for 24 servings (4 meals for 6 people per week), I find the service a bit pricey. Still, organic ingredients are not cheap, and in this case, the price reflects the quality. But you can start with the minimum box size (3 meals for 2 people per week) or the best-value order, which is 4 meals for 4 people per week.

3. Blue Apron – Best International Recipes

Blue Apron's Shrimp Sushi Bowls

Key Features

  • Gourmet meal kits 

  • Over 80 delicious recipes per week, plus add-ons

  • Dietary options include vegetarian, low-calorie, and diabetes-friendly

  • Current deal: Enjoy meals starting as low as $5.59!

Blue Apron offers a selection of around 80 different recipes each week, including a good variety for most diets. However, the menu mainly caters to an adult palate, so there aren’t too many family-friendly meals.

What’s on the Menu?

Blue Apron offers both meal kits and prepared meals. Kits take up to 45 minutes to prepare, and prepared meals take just 2 to 3 minutes in your microwave. You can see a breakdown of the full cooking or heating process in my colleague’s expert-tested Blue Apron review.

It offers recipes from international cuisines like Mediterranean, Asian, and Mexican. Each week, you’ll get to try new and exciting recipes like Sweet & Spicy Chicken Stir-Fry or Cheesy Pork Chorizo Enchiladas. There are also American recipes like NY Strip Steaks or a Creamy Poblano Burger. 

Blue Apron also has an Add-ons menu. This selection includes desserts, soups, salads, and a few ready-to-eat dishes updated weekly. If you prefer to cook meals by yourself, you can buy individual proteins like Cooked Pork Belly or Bistro Steaks.

What Makes It Special?

Blue Apron’s menu offers a few customization options, allowing you to upgrade/change certain ingredients. For instance, you can make a meal vegetarian or add meat to a vegetarian meal. There are also options to change the sides or proteins for specific meal kits, which makes the menu more flexible.

Blue Apron is committed to waste reduction, which is why most of its packaging materials are recyclable and/or reusable. However, I’m not a big fan of wrapping individual ingredients in plastic film, which Blue Apron does to maintain optimal transit conditions.

The Market section is another distinguishing feature of this particular service. There, you can buy its meals without opening an account. This is perfect if you want to try them out before committing.

Is It Good Value?

Blue Apron prepares tasty meals for various dieters, including omnivores, vegetarians, and pescatarians. I also like that you have recipes for every skill level, from absolute newbies in the kitchen to experienced home cooks. This way, you can improve your cooking skills and learn to work with more exotic ingredients that wouldn’t be a part of your diet otherwise.

At $3.74 per serving, I find the service quite affordable, especially considering the quality of the meals and ingredients. However, this price is based on Blue Apron’s maximum box size. If you decide on the minimum box size, which is 2 meals for 2 people for Meal Kits or 4 Prepared & Ready meals, the price per serving will increase. It’s still affordable, though.

Note that you can add more meals to your order, so there’s no hard cap. To order both kits and prepared meals in the same week, you have to place separate orders. You can also switch from 1 meal type to another from week to week.

4. HelloFresh – Best Easy-to-Cook Options

HelloFresh's Falafel Power Bowls

Key Features

  • Lots of family-friendly options

  • Over 100 weekly recipes and market add-ons

  • Dietary options include Calorie Smart, Veggie, Vegan, and Carb Smart  

Whether fussy children or picky adults, HelloFresh has something for everyone on its massive menu. And, even though it’s a meal kit service, you have plenty of options for easy-prep recipes that’ll only keep you in the kitchen for 30 to 35 minutes.

What’s on the Menu?

I was also impressed by the menu’s diversity, which lets you try dishes from international cuisines. This way, you can order Tex-Mex Turkey Stuffed Green Peppers for the picky eaters and treat yourself to a unique delicacy like the Spicy Tunisian Bulgur & Chicken Bowls. When the menu is this diverse, there are few limits to what you can enjoy!

Besides the impressive variety, our reviewer enjoyed trying out HelloFresh’s many easy-to-cook options. At least one-third of the menu is made from one-pan, easy prep, and easy cleanup meals (follow the tags to find them). This allows even busy parents to create delicious home-cooked meals that suit everyone’s tastes.

This service brings back its most beloved meals, identifiable by standout labels such as Best Recipe 2024 and Hall of Fame. Look out for Premium Picks dishes featuring high-quality ingredients and a higher price. Moreover, you can assess the complexity of each dish—categorized as Easy, Medium, or Hard—by selecting it.

What Makes It Special?

To top everything off, HelloFresh lets you customize 12+ sides and proteins each week. This way, you can decide if you want chicken or steak with your salad or if you want broccoli instead of potatoes with your Golden Chicken Schnitzel. In all fairness, the HelloCustom feature isn’t as comprehensive as Home Chef’s custom options, but it’s nice to have the option.

HelloFresh boasts an extensive on-site cookbook filled with over 2,500 recipes. This collection spans a range of global cuisines, including Thai, Mexican, and French. Also, it features a Dishes sub-section, where you can explore specific categories like Stir-Fry, Soup, and Skewer recipes.

Is It Good Value?

I like that HelloFresh has options for low-calorie, pescatarian, and other diets. It also boasts a good offer for vegetarians and vegans, with 10-, 15-, and 20-minute lunches and entrees for the entire family.

On the flip side, there are no meals marked as gluten-free, soy-free, or dairy-free. So if you want to avoid these ingredients, you’ll have to do some digging through the menu.

HelloFresh is a great fit for families, as you can order up to 6 meals for 4 people per week (or 24 total servings). In this case, you’ll pay $3.32 per serving, which is quite affordable. Honestly, I found the minimum box size, which is only 4 servings, to be a good price, too.

5. Home Chef – Best for Customized Meal Plans for Pittsburgher Families

Home Chef's Asian-Style Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Key Features

  • Good variety of prep options

  • 30+ unique weekly recipes + extras

  • 3 dietary preferences – carb-conscious, vegetarian, and calorie-conscious

It’s easy to see why Home Chef is 1 of the most popular meal delivery services. It provides great meal customization options, helping you leave out ingredients you don’t like or tolerate with ease. This Pittsburgh meal subscription service has options for busy people and those who relish time spent in the kitchen. Besides entrees, you can buy various add-ons. 

What’s on the Menu?

The variety of meal choices and prep requirements alone are outstanding. From Culinary Collection gourmet options like Baked Butter Cracker Salmon to an oven-ready Turkey Diavolo Ravioli that just needs to be heated up, there’s something to fit every schedule.

Home Chef’s meal kits include flavors from American and international cuisines. While you may not have as many gourmet options as with Blue Apron, there are 5 Culinary Collection meals each week. Plus, our reviewer found Home Chef’s recipe cards easy to follow.

Besides classic dishes, Home Chef’s menu includes a wide range of add-ons and extras. You can add breakfast, smoothies, snacks, desserts, soups, ready-made foods, and cooked proteins. There’s also the Bundle & Save category, which includes sets of popular extras, like salads and soups, at a better price.

What Makes It Special?

You can customize most meals by using Home Chef’s Customize It feature. This lets you swap the protein options with various other items. For instance, if you order Marsala Fig Pork Chop, you can choose between Filets Mignon, USDA Choice New York Strip Steak, Sirloin Steaks, Antibiotic-Free Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, and Boneless Pork Chops.

You can leave out up to 9 allergens due to preferences or intolerances while setting up your meal plan. These are fish, shellfish, pork, poultry, beef, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, and mushrooms.

Is It Good Value?

I would’ve loved to see more diet-specific menu filters, besides vegetarian, carb-, and calorie-conscious. Each week, there are dozens of vegetarian menu items to choose from. Also, Home Chef often offers Impossible Burger as an alternative to meat-containing dishes. This means you can make some of the classic entrees vegetarian as well.

Home Chef is a great fit for large families because you can order for 6 people, up to 6 meals per person. The price per serving starts at $7.99. The minimum order is 2 meals per week for 2 people.

6. Fresh and Easy – Best for Speedy Home-Cooked Meals

Fresh and Easy's Mediterranean-Style Salmon

Key Features

  • Access to Home Chef’s features and extras

  • 20+ speedy recipes per week

  • 3 dietary options – carb-conscious, vegetarian, and calorie-conscious

Fresh and Easy takes the work out of home-cooked meals and makes it easier to cook for the entire family. The menu includes Home Chef’s fastest meal kits, so you can trust the quality of the ingredients and the instructions available on the provided recipe cards.

What’s on the Menu?

The core menu comprises around a dozen meals in the Express and Fast & Fresh menu sections. You can prepare most Express meals in 15 minutes, while the Premium dishes take up to 30 minutes. Oven-Ready recipes come pre-prepped and only require some assembly before cooking.

Fresh and Easy has a few vegetarian meals on the menu. Plus, you can make some of the meat-containing meals vegetarian by using the Impossible Meats option (if available). As my colleague points out in their in-depth Fresh and Easy review, this is 1 of the simplest meal kit delivery services out there.

The recipes are quite simple, but this doesn’t mean they’re boring. Even though speed is the top priority here, you still get impressive dishes like Balsamic-Glazed Chicken Cutlet or Bok Choy and Mushroom Lo Mein (ready in 10 to 15 minutes).

What Makes It Special?

Fresh and Easy provides pre-prepared ingredients, so you usually won't need to slice, chop, grind, or dice in most cases. Sometimes, you'll get pre-washed food, too. Most of the time, you'll have to combine the ingredients, cook the meal, and a little more.

Heat your food in the microwave or a conventional oven. You'll enjoy the convenience of oven-safe trays and grill-safe bags that reduce cleanup. You may not even need to use pots, pans, and other utensils, too.

Is It Good Value?

Because Fresh and Easy is a Home Chef brand, it provides the same quality and unique features. Some recipes are customizable via the Customize It feature, and you’ll have access to Home Chef’s Extras as well as the Bundle & Save section.

Fresh and Easy practices the same pricing system and order size as Home Chef. This means that the price tag starts at $7.99 per serving. You can order between 2 meals for 2 people to 6 recipes for 6 people.

7. BistroMD – Best for Specific Dietary Needs

BistroMD's Grilled Salmon with Creamy Pesto

Key Features

  • Science-based meal plans created by a physician

  • Around 150 meals + snacks

  • 7 dietary programs, including diabetes-friendly, menopause, gluten-free, and vegan

If you want to get in shape without sacrificing delicious food, BistroMD is a great option. The meals are created by a doctor and a team of dietitians and cooked by professional chefs. This way, it’s like you’re being assisted by a team of professionals on your weight loss journey. 

What’s on the Menu?

Experts tailor BistroMD's meals to meet your weight loss calorie requirements. As a result, most recipes have between 300 and 500 calories per serving. The menu is diverse, offering portion-controlled, ready-made meals from various renowned global cuisines.

Some people seem to find the portion sizes a bit small, but I think they’re decent. After all, BistroMD is a healthy weight loss service focused on creating a calorie deficit. You get 3 meals per day plus snacks (1 snack per day for women and 2 snacks for men). The meals and snacks on women’s plans bring in 1200 calories per day, and men’s have 1400 calories per day.

BistroMD features a fixed menu with more than 150 meals. Options vary depending on the plan. For example, the Signature plan boasts over 150 meals, while the Vegan plan has about 25 recipes. Meals fall into 3 menu sections: Breakfast, Lunch/Dinner, and Snacks.

What Makes It Special?

BistroMD’s meals are perfectly portioned, so you won’t have to worry about counting calories. There are meal plans tailored for the needs of women, men, people with diabetes, heart health, menopause, gluten-sensitive people (gluten-free), keto dieters, and vegans.

The other plans are designed to fit particular diets. For instance, the Heart Healthy program follows the American Heart Association's recommendations for calories, sodium, total fat, and saturated fat. Also, gluten-free meals are tested to the FDA gluten-free standard.

Is It Good Value?

I'll admit, I was a bit skeptical about how good frozen meals could be. But according to my colleague’s tried-and-tested BistroMD review of the service, these meals are nothing like your typical TV dinners. They're flash-frozen to lock in freshness, and they taste pretty darn good.

BistroMD is a service for individuals looking to lose weight while eating healthily. All the meals are in a single-serving format, and you can order the Full Plan (breakfast, lunch, dinner) or the Lunches & Dinners plan (lunch and dinners). Both are available for 5 or 7 days and include snacks that fit your dietary needs.

Prices start at $8.24 per serving on the Full Plan, which places BistroMD on the pricey side. Still, considering the amount of care put into creating healthy weight-loss meals, it makes total sense.

8. Nutrisystem – Simple and Delicious Meals for Weight Loss

Nutrisystem's Meatloaf Sandwich

Key Features

  • Meal plans for men, women, and partners

  • Over 100 recipes in a rotating menu

  • Dietary options include diabetes-friendly, vegetarian, and low-calorie

Nutrisystem is a weight loss meal plan that hooks you up with yummy food and tips. It even claims that you’ll start seeing results within the first 4 weeks of eating meals on its diet plan. 

What’s on the Menu?

The menu is well-designed and includes options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snacks. Nutrisystem’s meals are ready-made and sized to fit your dietary and caloric needs. They're packed with lean proteins, healthy fats, and smart carbs that are balanced with veggies and dietary fiber for maximum nutrition.

Most of the cuisine is American, but you’ll find a few international influences, including Italian and Pan-Asian. Considering the size of the menu (over 100 options), it’s not easy to get bored, especially since you can add some of your own fruits and veggies. Learn more from our in-depth Nutrisystem review.

The weight-loss company delivers fresh and frozen meals. The recipes needing thawing before consumption are labeled as Frozen on the menu, so you'll easily tell 1 from another.

What Makes It Special?

All the meals are designed in collaboration with registered dietitians and follow the high protein and low glycemic index formula. This means that you won't feel hungry all the time, and your blood sugar levels will stay steady.

The NuMi app sets Nutrisystem apart from other weight-loss-oriented services, like BistroMD. The app was designed so you can easily keep tabs on your food, water, and activity, making it a breeze to stay on top of your goals.

The service sends daily motivators to keep you pumped up and motivated throughout the day. You also get personalized advice based on your tracked progress, which makes it feel like you have your own diet coach guiding your steps.

Is It Good Value?

Nutrisystem is particularly well-suited for individuals and couples looking to lose weight. However, it also serves as an excellent choice for those aiming to maintain a healthy diet.

Nutrisystem’s prices start at $9.64 per day for the Uniquely Yours plan. To unlock various useful features, you can sign up for a Uniquely Yours Max+ or a Complete 50 plan.

9. Trifecta – Great for Fitness-Oriented Ready-Made Meals

Trifecta's Chicken Tenders, Brown Rice, Mixed Vegetable recipe

Key Features

  • Fully gluten-free menu
  • Over 25 weekly recipes
  • Dietary options include paleo and keto options

Trifecta offers prepared, macro-balanced meals designed to boost your fitness journey. Each recipe is backed by food science and created with the help of a team of medical and diet specialists and nutrition-trained chefs.

What’s on the Menu?

You can choose your own meals among 4 plans: Clean, Paleo & Whole30 Approved, Keto, and Plant Based. Regardless of the diet you choose, all the recipes include carefully calculated macronutrients to help you lose weight, gain muscle, and get in shape.

The meal plans feature a chef-selected menu, but you can choose your own meals if you prefer. Otherwise, your weekly box is decided by Trifecta’s in-house dietitians and nutritionists based on your profile. You can decide on the size of the box and typically exclude 1 ingredient from your menu.

If you prefer to prepare your own meals, you can choose from the Meal Prep options. This selection includes 10 types of proteins, 4 varieties of vegetables, and 4 kinds of carbohydrates. Each has 4 servings, and you can mix and match them however you like.

What Makes It Special?

All the ingredients are sourced from environmentally sustainable farms and fisheries. The company also uses organic ingredients whenever possible. It’s a way to respect the health of its customers while also respecting the environment.

Trifecta isn’t Certified Organic, like Green Chef. So you can’t know for sure what percentage of your meal is organic until you read the label.

As our reviewer put it, Trifecta makes it easier to stick to a diet. That’s because all the meals are low in calories but have a high protein content. This way, you’re getting the best quality nutrition from each delicious meal.

Is It Good Value?

Since the meals are designed with nutrition in mind, there isn’t much culinary variety. You should expect a combination of lean meats (except for Plant Based plan), in-season vegetables, and whole grains. The entire menu is free of gluten, which makes Trifecta a great option for celiacs and people with gluten sensitivities.

Pricing starts at $13.79 per serving, but this varies depending on the plan you choose and the number of meals you order. The maximum box size includes 14 entrees and 7 breakfasts, which gives you the best value. The minimum box size is just 7 entrees per week but comes with a higher per-serving cost.

10. Dinnerly – Best for Budget-Friendly Hearty Meals

Dinnerly's Chicken Taco Salad

Key Features

  • 6 steps to cook each recipe

  • 100+ weekly recipes and extras

  • Menu options include kid-friendly, one-pot, low-calories, and more

If you're looking for an affordable meal delivery service, Dinnerly might just be your go-to option! The meal kits are budget-friendly without being boring or lackluster. This budget-friendly service offers a surprising number of customizable recipes, surpassing many of its more expensive competitors.

What’s on the Menu?

Dinnerly offers over 100 different items on its menu each week, giving you plenty of variety to choose from. However, there’s still a trade-off for these low-cost recipes. For instance, some of the dishes are pretty basic, with just a few ingredients to work with. And if you're following a specific diet like keto, you might not find many options that work for you.

The menu has enough variety to satisfy all but the pickiest of eaters. In fact, my colleague thought Dinnerly had a better selection than many more expensive services.

The massive menu includes a wide range of American dishes, but there are also more exotic recipes inspired by international cuisines. So, in the same week, you can enjoy a Thai Beef Bowl and some delicious Chicken Parm.

What Makes It Special?

Dinnerly makes other compromises, including not using images on its recipe cards. Beginner chefs might initially find this a bit more confusing, as it’s more difficult to visualize each step of the cooking process. But I think this is a reasonable trade considering the money you can save with this service.

Dinnerly allows for the customization of sides and proteins in certain dishes, identifiable by the Customizable label on the main menu. I was surprised to find that more than half of the menu items offer this flexibility. Note that altering ingredients might incur a small surcharge. But considering Dinnerly's affordability, this extra cost should be minimal.

Is It Good Value?

Dinnerly is committed to sourcing sustainable proteins and produce from trusted suppliers. This means that all the meal kits include ingredients like antibiotic-free chicken, grass-fed beef, and even some organic fruits and veggies on occasion.

There are plenty of kid-friendly options and easy-prep recipes (follow the Under 30 Minutes and One Pot Meals tags). And, if you're feeling fancy, Dinnerly offers some more expensive recipes called PremiYUM. These come with a varying per-serving upcharge.

At $2.12 per serving, Dinnerly is a great budget-friendly option for any household. You can order for 2 and 4 people, between 2 and 6 meals per person each week.
