Whatever issues Philly restaurants have had with UberEATS — shrinking delivery radius, sketchy drivers, high commission fee — it seems the pros mostly outweigh the cons. There are now more than 700 area eateries on the platform, a huge jump up from the 100 or so it had at launch last August, Uber announced today.

Coverage has increased, too. The ridesharing company says it provides UberEATS services (with the caveat that the delivery zone for any given spot can fluctuate at any time) to the following areas:

  • Center City
  • South Philly
  • North Philly and Temple University
  • Northern Liberties and Fishtown
  • University City
  • Main Line
  • Manayunk
  • Conshohocken
  • Chestnut Hill
  • “Most of the Southwest and Northeast suburbs”

The food delivery world is already very crowded — think Caviar, Postmates, GrubHub, Eat24 — so to win customers, Uber devs have been pouring time into adding features to the UberEATS app. For example, you can filter via speed, price and dietary constraints (gluten-free? vegan?). You can customize your drop-off point to choose curbside, lobby or at the door. You can track your order on an interactive map (no word if it’s more accurate than the regular Uber map), and also schedule food deliveries in advance. Plus, you can now access the service on the web, no app required.

It seems to have worked in Philly, because, according to the company, the list of the top restaurants here is pretty diverse. There’s Fette Sau, but also Pat’s King of Steaks. El Vez, but also Chickie’s and Pete’s. Pizzeria Vetri, but also Papa John’s (really? Come on now, Philly).

In alphabetical order, here are Philly’s 15 favorites on UberEATS:

  • Bareburger
  • Bubblefish
  • Buena Onda
  • Burger Lane
  • Chickie’s and Pete’s
  • Dan Dan
  • El Vez
  • Famous Dave’s BBQ
  • Fette Sau
  • Halal Guys
  • Papa John’s
  • Pat’s King of Steaks
  • Pita Chip
  • Pizzeria Vetri
  • Wishbone
