The final OrderUp.

We tapped OrderUp tonight to get some more delicious Chicago Gyros and Dogs. Only to find out that tonight was OrderUp’s very last night. Starting tomorrow, OrderUp is joining forces with GrubHub

That’s kind of a bummer. We really liked OrderUp. But still, we enjoyed our last meal from OrderUp. Genifer had a huge Greek salad…

And I had “The Dougie.” Grilled cheeses loaded with gyro meat…

It sure was delicious. We’re really going to miss OrderUp. It was super convenient and always worked really well for us ever since we’ve moved to Northside. I guess now we’ll have to try GrubHub and see how it compares. 😀🥗🥪❤️

OrderUp: Chicago Gyros and Dogs.

I love me some gyros. But I don’t eat nearly enough of them, mainly because there aren’t that many gyro places around. When I ride my 17 metro bus from work home every night, it goes right by a place in Clifton called Chicago Gyros and Dogs. So it was kind of surprising that we’ve never checked them out. Tonight, we tapped OrderUp to bring us some much-needed gyros…

Genifer ordered the chicken gyro stuffed full of grilled chicken, tomatoes, lettuce, onions and taz sauce…

I ordered just the classic gyro loaded with tons of delicious gyro meat, tomatoes, onions and taz sauce…

And I had to try something Chicago Gyros and Dogs called “The Dougie.” It’s gyro meat on a grilled cheeses…

Their gyros aren’t the most beautiful things in the world. And it’s pretty hard to get a really nice, appetizing photo of a gyro. But there was so much meat on those gyros that they were also pretty difficult to pick up and eat. But they sure were delicious. Next time we have a craving for gyros, we know where to turn. 😀🥙❤️

OrderUp: Los Potrillos.

We had Los Potrillos delivered again from OrderUp…

Sometimes you just need a really good ground beef chimichanga…

YUM! We really enjoy getting Los Potrillos delivered from OrderUp. 😀🌯❤️

OrderUp: China Food.

There’s a Chinese restaurant in Clifton called China Food. We’ve driven by it a bunch of times but we’ve never actually stopped there to eat. Tonight, we were perusing OrderUp to find something to have delivered for dinner. And much to our surprise on the list of restaurants that will deliver to us, China Food. So we finally got to try us some China Foods…

Genifer ordered Sesame Chicken. And I ordered Empress Chicken…

We got some crab rangoons and fried wontons too. Everything was really outstanding. We may have just found our new go-to Chinese restaurant. At least where delivery is involved. And they gave us about 20 or so fortune cookies…

Fortune cookies for days. China Food is really great stuff. 😀🍜❤️

The laziest Sunday.

We had the laziest Sunday. After the soccer game last night and the big international friendly tomorrow, we just laid around pretty much all day…

We did manage to pull ourselves off the sofa long enough to order more delicious Mexican food from Los Potrillos via OrderUp

And then it was right back to laying around and watching movies…

It was a pretty wonderful Sunday. 😀🌮🌯📺❤️

OrderUp: Los Potrillos.

When we lived downtown, we used to tap OrderUp to have dinner delivered every now and then. But the delivery times kept getting longer and longer. And eventually,
we gave up on OrderUp and we started using UberEats. For whatever reason, all the good restaurants we liked on UberEats gradually started disappearing to the point there are hardly any restaurants on the app anymore. Tonight, we gave OrderUp another try. We decided to have some delicious Mexican food delivered for dinner from Los Potrillos in Clifton’s Gaslight District. Mexican food always looks like such a hot mess especially when it’s to-go but it sure is delicious stuff! Genifer ordered some enchiladas with rice and beans…

I got my favorite, a ground beef chimichanga also with rice and beans…

We also got some Jalapeno Poppers but they weren’t very good…

But everything else was such great stuff! It’s a little dangerous to know someone will bring me a chimichanga at the push of a button. But pretty awesome at the same time. It’s good to know that OrderUp is back and there are a bunch of really great restaurants on there we’ll have to try. I can definitely see more OrderUp in our near future. 😀🌮🌯❤️
