Restaurant Delivery in Bergen County NJ Just Got Really Awesome

Catering  / 

You’re not in the mood to go out for dinner, but it’s too hot/late/unappealing to cook at the moment. Sure, takeout is an option, but if you order from the same Thai place one more time you’re going to swear off Pad See Ew forever. (Tragic!) The solution might just be to get delicious dishes from one of your favorite local restaurants delivered to your door. And with a bunch of great restaurant delivery services in Bergen County, it’s actually easier than ever. We compared the offerings of five delivery services to figure out which ones are best for our weeknight food fix.

After achieving cult-like popularity in New York City, Seamless expanded to Bergen County to satisfy our need for food delivery. The breadth of restaurants is extensive, including local favorites GRK Grill and Sofia. Our favorite restaurants from Seamless include Tenafly Classic Diner, Hummus Elite, Bing’s Burgers and Goldberg’s Famous Bagels.

Restaurant: Hummus Elite
What we ordered: Falafel Sandwich
Time for delivery: 45 minutes
Delivery Fee: $2.00

Service: Seamless does an excellent job at keeping its delivery time under an hour, making sure food is still hot when it arrives. Our falafel sandwich was in pristine condition, and so were the sweet potato fries. The delivery guy was friendly and made sure to update our seamless account as to when he would be picking up, and then delivering, the food. Overall, Seamless was on its A-game with dinner!

Whether you're looking for a binge-meal such as Bareburger or a healthy smoothie from Lovin’ Today, Grubhub has more than 100 restaurants in Bergen County that will satisfy your craving. When you order from GrubHub, they text, call and email you updates on when your food will be delivered, which is incredibly helpful! Our favorite spots from GrubHub are Daruma, Mr. Bagelsworth and Avo’s Grill.

Restaurant: Daruma
What we ordered: sushi rolls, soup, salad
Time for delivery: 40 minutes
Delivery Fee: NONE   


Service: After we placed our order on GrubHub, we received an email and text message notification that Daruma had received the order and it was in the process of being made. GrubHub is great at constantly communicating with customers and updating them on their orders, which not many food services do. The food was delivered earlier than anticipated and maintained its quality. The website and app are both easy to use, and they give you plenty of options for customizing your order (like adding avocado or switching to brown rice for each roll ordered).
