Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Uberness
On July 4, 2012, a quiet uprising occurred in San Francisco.

And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
