We’re Grubhub, the nation’s leading online and mobile food ordering company. Since 2004 we’ve been connecting hungry diners to the local restaurants they love. We’re moving eating forward with no signs of slowing down.

 

With more than 80,000 restaurants and over 14 million diners across 1,600 U.S. cities and London, we’re delivering like never before.
