If that’s the case then we’re hear to help!
With the emergence of incredible restaurant apps and many hidden and super helpful perks that they offer, it’s a no-brainer to not have these downloaded today.
Best Restaurant Apps for 2018
Here are the best restaurant apps that you need to download today in 2018.
You’ll never be able to eat out ever again without these on your smartphone!
1. Open Table
There’s no easier way to discover and reserve a table at a restaurant for free than using Open Table. Plus as an added bonus, you even get rewarded with dining credits every time you dine out. Not bad if you ask me.
Plus it works in all major tourist destinations including hundreds of the most popular restaurants in Las Vegas.
2. Trip Advisor
Although this may seem like another hotel and attractions review app, believe it or not Trip Advisor offers some of the best reviews and recommendations for restaurants. I personally use this to look up the top 10-20 restaurants in a certain area (like Orlando).
A food delivery app and service newcomer that isn’t available anywhere but will probably soon dominate market in a couple year. With UberEATS, you can get your food from your favorite local restaurants all while using the same Uber account that you use today. (And of course don’t forget to use this code: UberAdamBryan to get $15 off your first ride!)
This is a game changer for healthy eating. With Tasteful, users are able to search for restaurants and their menus just by selecting their healthy diet preferences including vegetarian, vegan, paleo, low carb and gluten free. It’s crazy how helpful this app is.
By far the easiest and most popular way to browse menus from local restaurants, choose what you want, and get it delivered straight to your door.
Trusting a restaurants sommelier isn’t always a surefire bet. Delectable helps you cut truly understand the ratings and reviews or a wine. Just take a picture and get expert opinions.
Anytime you can pay with your phone and get rewarded with free drinks and surprises is always a great perk. By using Starbucks mobile app you’ll be able order ahead and pick up your drinks without waiting in line, while also gaining stars. If you go to Starbucks on the daily, it’s a necessity, especially if you want to get free drinks and refills.
8. Taco Bell
I mean why wouldn’t you want to gain points for your crunch wrap supremes or chicken quesadillas?
Yes Foursquare is still a thing. With this app you can follow people who have similar tastes, get food and menu option advice and more.
This is one of the more popular ways to find the best restaurants, cafes, and bars. Plus you’ll even be able to read blogger reviews of certain restaurants as well!
Resy is quite unique. This app allows you to reserve the best tables and times at some of the more popular eateries in major cities by essentially buying the table. It may seem ridiculous but if they had something like this for Disney World restaurants, I would be all over it.
With Postmates, you’ll be able to get food delivered to you in under an hour. But not unlike some food delivery apps, you can actually get deliveries from major chains like Chipotle.
Take the guessing out of what time a certain bar or restaurant offers their happy hour. Now you can search for restaurants and bars around you and know exactly what time there happy hour is while also learning about any specials and deals.
14. Tip Calculator
Take the hassle, mental math, and stress on trying to figure out how much of a tip you need to leave. With this app, you’ll be able to choose your tip percentage and total bill, even if you’re looking to split the bill between other people as well. So simple, yet so helpful.
Although not a restaurant app, Acorns is a great app that you must check out especially if you use your debit card a lot when eating out. Basically how it works is that when you make a purchase, you’ll be able to invest the difference. So if you make a purchase at Chick Fil A for $7.50, Acorns will round up and invest the $0.50 for you. It’s an awesome way to potentially make some money just for eating out.
Hopefully you try one of these best restaurant apps today.
