Amarillo’s weather is great, the Palo Duro Canyon offers some of America’s most scenic hiking and horse trails, and there are many attractions to be seen along the former Route 66. With so much going on, who has time to plan and shop for meals?
That’s why I’ve researched the options out there and put together a list of Amarillo’s best meal delivery services. Singles, couples, working families, people on specialized diets – there’s a meal delivery service on this list for just about everyone!
Keep reading, Amarillo, and learn how you and your loved ones can eat better and save time and money.
Meal delivery services like Home Chef send regular boxes of food, direct to your door. You can choose between meal kits with ingredients you have to prepare and cook yourself or prepared meals that are ready to heat and eat.
Food delivery services like Grubhub deliver food from nearby restaurants. Simply go on the app or website, find a list of participating restaurants, then choose your meal. The food delivery service brings it fast and hot (ideally!) to your door.
Food delivery is convenient and quick, but it can get expensive if you’re using it every day. And while Texas barbecue is certainly a culinary treasure, it can also wreak havoc on your waistline.

Postmates delivers more than just food
Orders are dispatched as part of Uber

Postmates is now owned by Uber, and can take advantage of Uber’s sophisticated dispatch and routing systems. But that also means you have to watch for surge prices during busy periods. If you order takeout when the rodeo is in town, the delivery might cost more than your food.
