Oklahoma City is a mecca for food lovers, with a diverse culinary scene that pleases even the pickiest of eaters. But with so many restaurants and options for eating out, your wallet will get thinner by the day.
Luckily, I found another option that’s equally as good but less expensive. Oklahoma City has a wide range of meal delivery services that allow you to enjoy nourishing homemade meals at a fraction of the cost of eating out. Plus, there are lots of choices out there no matter what your dietary needs are and whether you enjoy cooking from a meal kit or prefer to heat something prepared in the microwave.
Out of all the options, I found Factor to be the best choice, thanks to its nutritionally balanced and chef-prepared heat-and-eat meals. But every service on this list has something to offer, so you’re sure to find a meal plan that suits you.
I’ve compiled a list of Oklahoma City’s 10 best meal delivery services, comparing their menus, prices, and shipping. So, if you want to know more, keep reading!

Factor is a meal delivery service that offers a wide variety of dishes that can accommodate different dietary needs. The meals come ready-made, so you don’t need more than 5 minutes to prepare your lunch or dinner. On a side note, you can also use an oven instead of a microwave as long as you remove the food from its plastic container.
I need to highlight that these recipes are nothing like standard microwave meals. Each dish is carefully prepared by professional chefs and then packed to seal in nutrients, texture, and flavor. To avoid any texture and taste changes, the food is never frozen (only chilled for transport). As a result, if you follow the heating instructions provided by the producer, you’ll be able to enjoy the full freshness of every meal.
The menu is varied and offers a well-designed culinary experience with influences from world-famous cuisines, such as Mediterranean, Asian, Middle-Eastern, and Mexican. Several recipes fit the hearty and filling style that’s so common for Southern cuisine. Dishes like White Cheddar Chicken or Jalapeno Beef Mac and Cheese are all-time favorites, and even the fussiest of eaters will enjoy them.
I like that most meals range from 350-900 calories per serving and that there are several vegetarian and vegan options each week. Overall, as my colleague put it in their review, Factor is a great option if healthy, prepared dinners are your goal. Each new subscription comes with an included 20-minute virtual nutrition coaching session with one of Factor’s nutrition coaches and dietitians.
Moreover, the add-ons menu is very well-stocked, with options for breakfast (egg bites, pancakes, smoothies, and fresh juice), healthy desserts, cooked proteins (chicken breasts, mahi mahi, salmon, and so on), and sides.
Prices start at $6.19 per serving for the maximum order, so Factor is a bit pricier than other meal delivery services. However, considering its convenience and culinary diversity, I think it’s worth it. Currently, you can mix the meal plans, and order 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, or 18 single-serving meals each week (10 meals per week is the most popular plan).
A USDA-certified organic company
45+ unique recipes per week
8 meal plans, including keto, plant-based, and gluten-free
Current deal: Get $250 off + free shipping
Green Chef tailors its menu toward people with specialized dietary needs and those looking for meal kits that include organic ingredients. The menu is large (45+ recipes) and changes each week, so it’s difficult to get bored, even as a couple or a larger family. Plus, there’s a wide selection of add-ons, which includes healthy desserts, breakfasts, 10-minute lunches, and cooked protein.
Green Chef offers 8 meal plans, each catering to a specific diet, and has the most vegan and vegetarian dishes on the menu for a service that’s not entirely plant-based. The company is committed to offering as many organic and ethically sourced ingredients as possible. However, according to my colleague’s in-depth Green Chef review, the only organic ingredients are eggs and fresh produce, while the proteins are raised with high animal welfare standards.
The menu is divided into categories that fit several dietary needs, such as Keto, Gluten Free, Protein Packed, Plant Based, Quick & Easy, Calorie Smart, Delicious Discoveries, or Mediterranean. Most recipes are easy to cook if you follow the instructions on the recipe cards. With these meal kits and basic cooking skills, you can prepare a medium-complexity meal like Buttery Lemon-Garlic Shrimp in 25 minutes. The more complex meals will take around 30 to 35 minutes to complete.
I like that Green Chef is also focused on eco-friendly packaging materials (whenever possible), but I’m a bit taken aback by the fact that each ingredient is individually wrapped in plastic. While I understand the company wants to make sure all the ingredients arrive in pristine condition, some veggies don’t need extra protection. Other than this, I do appreciate that the other materials used are recyclable or reusable.
Green Chef is a great option for larger households since you can order for 2, 4, or 6 people each week. Also, you can order 3 or 4 meals per person per week (with the 4-person plan, there’s also the option to order 2 meals per person). The prices start at $9.99 per serving when you order the 4-person plan with 4 meals per person or more.
America’s most popular meal kit service
60+ unique recipes per week
Dietary options include vegetarian, pescatarian, and calorie smart
Current deal: Free Breakfast For Life + 16 Free Meals
HelloFresh is a meal kit delivery service that can accommodate different tastes and dietary needs. The menu includes a wide range of recipes each week, with dishes that are easy to prepare and can appeal to both adults and children.
The service offers a range of cuisines – there’s a good variety of family-friendly options such as classic meat and vegetable dishes, kid-friendly meals, and vegetarian and low-calorie options. You can also find many quick and easy-to-prepare recipes (between 15 and 25 minutes) and 10-minute lunches that can be helpful for busy families.
HelloFresh also provides clear, step-by-step instructions with each recipe, making it easier for families to prepare meals together. While testing it out, our reviewer found the recipe cards easy to follow and loved that each meal kit includes pre-measured ingredients, which helps to simplify the cooking process and reduce waste.
The focus of HelloFresh is to provide customers with premium ingredients (sometimes organic) and help them cook well-balanced meals at home. Plus, the company makes an effort to work with suppliers who use sustainable farming practices and prioritize high-quality produce.
Moreover, HelloFresh has the HelloCustom feature, which allows you to change, swap, or upgrade 12+ sides and proteins each week. This way, you can decide if your Golden Chicken Schnitzel comes with a side of potatoes or broccoli. As a result, the menu becomes even more varied, which is fantastic news for picky eaters.
To help you navigate this massive menu, HelloFresh uses a system of clever tags, like Fast & Fresh, Brunch, 10-Min Lunch, or 15-Min Breakfast for recipes that are quick to make. You’ll also find Premium Picks recipes, which include gourmet ingredients like shrimp, scallops, or high-quality steak. Lastly, there’s the Hall of Fame tag for the most appreciated dishes on the menu.
The cost per serving usually varies depending on the specific meal plan and options selected, but HelloFresh is generally competitive with other meal kit delivery services on the market. The prices start at $3.32 per serving, and you can order for 2 or 4 people, between 2 and 6 meals per person per week. The most popular plan is 3 meals for 2 people per week.
Meal kits and oven-ready recipes
30+ unique recipes per week plus extras
Dietary options include carb-conscious and calorie-conscious
Home Chef’s Customize It feature is a unique feature of this service and one of the main reasons why so many people want to try it out. This feature allows you to either swap or upgrade the protein in most meals on the menu. For instance, in a meal like Picadillo-Style Pork Stuffed Peppers, you can choose between ground beef, pork, or turkey.
Most recipes on the menu are “Americanized,” as my colleague called it in their in-depth Home Chef review. However, this doesn’t mean you won’t find any international influences. Recipes like Shrimp Bruschetta Risotto or Huli Huli Tofu Rice Bowl are available on every menu rotation (which happens weekly). Also, the rest of the menu includes meals that Oklahomans love, like BBQ, Tex-Mex, or Fried Chicken.
Home Chef also has a solid selection of vegetarian meals. You can swap vegan Impossible Burger for meat on many meals. You’ll find even more veggie-forward options in the Extras section, which includes everything from breakfast items and desserts to a variety of cooked meats, soups, and seafood. There are also snacks, bread, and beverages.
I think Home Chef’s menu is a great fit for families with children since there are lots of crowd-pleasing options that are quite popular with fussy eaters. Moreover, each week, you’ll find 4 meals from the Culinary Collection category, which are designed for an adult palate. But be advised, these meals are a bit more complex and require more time and effort than other meal kits.
The well-designed recipe cards include helpful instructions and cooking tips, so even beginners will feel confident about trying new things. Plus, with each recipe, you get a list of the extra things you’ll need during cooking.
Home Chef is quite affordable, but the cost varies depending on the number of servings and the specific meals you choose. In general, the per-serving cost ($7.99) is less expensive than dining out at a restaurant or ordering takeout. You can order for large and small families and couples – the maximum order is 6 meals per week for 6 people, while the minimum is 2 meals for 2 people.
Weekly rotating menu
20+ dishes per week + extras
3 dietary preferences, including calorie-conscious, vegetarian, and carb-conscious
Fresh and Easy specializes in easy-to-cook meal kits that only take 10 to 30 minutes to put together. The brand is a subsidiary of Home Chef and offers 4 meal categories (Express Meal Kits, Fast & Fresh, and Oven- and Grill-ready) plus salads, and most of the recipes fit an American palate.
The secret stands in clever cooking tips and well-designed meal kits that turn cooking into a fun and speedy experience. For instance, a recipe like Honey BBQ Chicken isn’t that easy to pull off. But with Fresh and Easy’s oven-ready method, there’s little prep to be done, and then you just have to put it in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes.
I like that I have access to all the Home Chef features (including the Customize It tool) and that the recipes and ingredients follow the same standard of quality. In a nutshell, Fresh and Easy tries to provide people who don’t want to spend more than 20 minutes in the kitchen with healthy and delicious recipes. And, according to my colleague’s tried and tested review, it does a stellar job.
Fresh and Easy doesn’t have options for vegans or people with specific dietary needs (like gluten- or dairy-free). However, you have the possibility to remove recipes that include ingredients you don’t like from the menu during the ordering process. This is a way to make it easy for you to find the meals that work best for your preferences.
If you find the Fresh and Easy menu lacking, you can always supplement it with cooked proteins, soups, or breakfast options from the Extras section (the same one available on Home Chef).
There’s also a Bundle section where you can pair salads with chicken (or other protein), breakfast with smoothies or lattes, bread with soups, and so on. This way, you can design a complete breakfast or lunch from the start.
Fresh and Easy prices are the same as Home Chef’s (starting at $7.99 per serving for maximum orders). You can order for 2, 4, or 6 people between 2 and 6 meals per person. The shipping is a $10.99 flat fee per order.
Different meal plans for men and women
150 meals per week, plus snacks
7 dietary options, including heart-healthy, vegan, and diabetes-friendly
BistroMD is a meal delivery service focused on weight loss through healthy eating. The meal plans are designed by a weight loss physician with years of experience in helping patients achieve healthy weight loss without starving themselves or having to give up on meals they love.
The meals are designed to fit your caloric needs for weight loss (most recipes are between 300 and 500 calories per serving). However, this doesn’t mean the food is tasteless! The BistroMD menu is quite varied and features portion-controlled ready-made meals from several world-famous cuisines.
While most of the meals are American, there’s plenty of inspiration from international cuisines, such as Mexican, Asian, and Mediterranean. This way, even if you’re trying to lose weight, you can still enjoy luxurious recipes, such as Meatloaf with Honey Bourbon Glaze or Grilled Salmon with Champagne Sauce. Check out my colleague’s review for a more in-depth description of the BistroMD menu.
BistroMD features 7 programs, each designed to help people with specific dietary needs. For instance, men and women have separate programs because each gender has different caloric needs. Also, there are 2 programs dedicated to women – the standard program and the Menopause Program. The latter includes chef-prepared meals that include 25 g or fewer carbs and lean protein to support hormone regulation and help with long-term weight loss.
BistroMD also has a gluten-free program that follows the FDA gluten-free standard and includes meals that don’t contain wheat, rye, or barley. So anyone who has gluten sensitivities or Celiac disease can enjoy the meals formulated for this meal plan.
The dishes are cooked with fresh ingredients and then frozen to preserve the texture and taste. This makes it safer for transport and prolongs the shelf life, but it can be a problem for some people. So if you’re looking for ready-made meals that are delivered fresh, Factor may be a better option.
Overall, BistroMD’s plans are designed for individuals (no family-friendly meals), and each plan can include breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks (to keep your cravings in check). You can order the Full Program for 7 or 5 days or the Lunches and Dinners program for 7 or 5 days. Prices start at $8.24 per serving but can vary greatly depending on your options.
Spice up your meals with Martha Stewart's recipes and spice blends
Over 100 entrees each week plus desserts
5 dietary preferences, including low-calorie, vegetarian, and pescatarian
Marley Spoon’s impressive menu (100+ recipes per week) is a perfect fit for Oklahomans, who enjoy culinary diversity and know how to appreciate a good selection of tastes and textures. Martha Stewart is known for her appreciation for Southern cuisine; she even promoted a few delicious Southern recipes in her cookbooks and shows.
The Marley Spoon menu includes a range of cuisines (Asian, Mediterranean, American, Mexican, and more) and offers options that fit some of the most common dietary restrictions. Each week, you find at least 10+ vegetarian recipes, 5+ vegan recipes, and around 15 dairy-free recipes.
There are also many one-pot meals that fit a beginner cook’s skills and don’t take too long to prepare. Based on my colleague’s tried and tested review of Marley Spoon, all the recipes can be prepared and cooked in 6 steps or less. So you can also use the recipe cards and tips to improve your cooking skills.
I like that the company sources its ingredients from trustworthy suppliers, such as local farmers, fishermen, and specialty producers. For example, the beef comes from grass-fed, free-range cattle from Australia and New Zealand, and the seafood is sourced from sustainable fisheries. As a result, the meal kits only include high-quality ingredients that are fresh, seasonal, and sustainably grown or raised.
Marley Spoon lets you customize some of the meals by upgrading the protein (from sirloin steak to organic sirloin steak, for instance) or swapping the protein altogether (chicken instead of shrimp). However, organic ingredients come with an upcharge and are only available for upgrades. If you want more organic ingredients in your meals, have a look at Green Chef’s menu.
Marley Spoon is a great fit for families and couples since you can order for 2 or 4 people per week between 2 and 6 meals per person. Prices start at $2.99 per serving for 24 portions (the maximum order), which is quite convenient, but you won’t go broke even if you order the minimum amount, which is 4 portions per week.
Mostly organic non-produce items
Around 16 unique weekly recipes and add-ons
6 dietary preferences, including gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free
Oklahoma City isn’t known as a vegan hub, but things are changing as more people are interested in healthy foods. This is why Purple Carrot fits really well with the local culinary scene – while the service is 100% plant-based, its meals can be enjoyed by everyone.
The recipes are clever and combine taste and texture into delicious meals that impress both vegetarians and meat eaters. If you’ve got the time to cook, you should try the meal kits section. Here, you’ll find exotic recipes like Spicy Szechuan Style Glass Noodles or Pulled BBQ Jackfruit Sandwiches that are low in calories (maximum 520 calories per serving) and easy to cook (only 25 minutes).
There are also options for breakfasts and lunches (not many, though) and a few add-ons for your pantry in the meal kits section. However, as our detailed Purple Carrot review states, you can’t mix and match between the plans.
If you’re in a hurry, Purple Carrot’s ready meals section offers single-serving meals that need a couple of minutes in the microwave. However, there are 11 recipes per week, which can seem rather limiting, especially when compared to a service like Factor. But keep in mind that Purple Carrot works on a 6 weeks rotation system, so you’ll get to enjoy more new and exciting items.
Purple Carrot uses a variety of packaging materials to ensure the freshness and safety of ingredients during shipping. The company aims to minimize waste and use recyclable and compostable materials whenever possible. But I think there’s more work to be done on reducing the use of wrapping plastic in meal kits. The prepared meals arrive in microwave-safe containers that can be reused and recycled, so it’s less worrisome.
Prices vary, depending on whether you order meal kits or prepared meals. Meal kits start at $8.50 per serving for the biggest box size (3 meals per week, 4 servings). However, even if you order the minimum amount (3 meals per week, 2 servings) is still affordable, considering this is a plant-based service. The ready-made meals will cost you $13 per serving, and you can order between 6 and 10 single-serving dishes each week.
Recipes with 6 ingredients per dish
100+ meal kits and prepared meals per week + extras
Dietary options include low-calorie, vegetarian, and low-carb
Dinnerly specializes in fuss-free meal kits that provide balanced nutrition for omnivores. The menu is quite massive, similar to Marley Spoon’s, and features a good selection of recipes from American and international cuisines.
The menu uses easy-to-follow tags to help you find the meals you want. For instance, if you’re looking for easy-to-prepare meals, you have the One Pot Meal and Under 30 Minutes tags. There are also tags to indicate dietary-specific meals, like Dairy Free, No Added Gluten, Low Calorie, Low Carb, Vegan, or Vegetarian.
Most of the recipes are kid-friendly, and you can customize the ones that don’t fit your taste by upgrading the protein or side dish. While the customization feature isn’t as advanced as the one Home Chef has to offer, it’s good to have the option.
Dinnerly has an extensive network of trustworthy suppliers, so you’ll always have access to the freshest produce and the best quality meat. The chicken meat is NAE (No Antibiotics Ever) tier, and all the meats are locally sourced. The only exception is for high-quality, grass-fed beef from Australia. Moreover, you also have access to some organic ingredients.
To keep the prices low, most of the meals are simple and contain fewer ingredients. Still, this doesn’t mean you’ll be missing on nutrition or taste (there’s a lot you can do with 6 or 7 ingredients). Plus, the company has around 10+ PremiYum recipes each week for when you’re craving more complex flavors.
Dinnerly also uses minimal packaging materials (also for cost reasons), which is why it’s one of the most eco-friendly companies on my list. For instance, while testing it out for their comprehensive review, my colleague discovered that Dinnerly has digital-only recipe cards. This may make things a bit more challenging for some people, but it’s a step forward toward reducing the company’s carbon footprint.
Dinnerly is great for couples and families since you can order for 2 or 4 people, between 2 and 6 meals per person per week. The cost per serving starts at $2.12 per serving for the maximum order (24 portions per week), and it stays affordable even for the minimum order (4 portions per week).
Gourmet meal options each week
16 unique recipes per week plus add-ons
Dietary options include low-calorie, vegetarian, and health conscious
Blue Apron’s menu features healthy gourmet meals that resemble Southern comfort food without worries about extra carbs and calories. Plus, there are several Family-Friendly recipes each week that even the fussiest of eaters will enjoy.
The menu is diverse enough to keep things interesting, and the recipes change weekly. Also, the ingredients are carefully sourced from Blue Apron’s network of farmers, fisheries, and ranchers that only use sustainable farming practices.
All the ingredients that make it in your meal kits are premium quality and packed with nutrients and flavor. According to my colleague’s in-depth Blue Apron review, some of the ingredients are even USDA-certified organic, but this isn’t the norm.
Most of the recipes are meal kits that require some level of preparation (around 20 to 40 minutes), but there are also oven-ready dishes that are ready to cook. These come in a recyclable baking tin, so all you have to do is pop them in the oven. Plus, you also have access to several low-prep, no-hassle meals on the fly (follow the Fast & Easy label for this).
For more flexibility, Blue Apron offers customization options that allow customers to choose the type of protein they like in their meals. Plus, with some meals, you can eliminate the animal protein altogether and turn the meal vegetarian (follow the Make It Vegetarian label).
Each week, there’s at least 1 Premium dish on Blue Apron’s menu. These meals are a bit more complex and include refined ingredients like scallops, shrimp, gnocchi, or rib-eye steak, which usually require advanced cooking skills. However, with Blue Apron’s recipe cards, it’s easy to understand and follow the instructions, even for beginners.
All this comes at a surprisingly reasonable cost. Blue Apron’s Signature for 4 plan starts at just $5.74 per serving (for 5 meals per week), and shipping is a $10.99 flat fee for each order. You can order for 2 or 4 people, between 2 and 5 meals per week.

To help you find the best meal delivery services in Oklahoma City, I rounded up the criteria I used for this list:
Factor is the highest-rated meal delivery service on my list thanks to its great selection of prepared meals you just heat and serve. If you’re pressed for time but want to eat healthy and delicious dinners, you’ll love Factor.
HelloFresh has the most family-friendly menu due to a variety of cuisines and options for customization. Also, most meal kits are easy to prepare, and the recipe cards include instructions and useful tips and tricks that help beginner cooks improve at a faster rate.
If you’re looking to switch to a plant-based diet, then Purple Carrot is a great option. The menu is 100% plant-based and vegan and features delicious recipes that even meat-eaters enjoy.
