You may never have to leave the house again

The onslaught of food delivery services like Caviar, UberEats and DoorDash has made it easier than ever to enjoy restaurant-quality food on the couch in your sweatpants. Now, Amazon is throwing its hat into the local food delivery game.

Announced via release, Amazon PrimeNow will offer one-hour delivery for Prime members from dozens of restaurants across the city. Which means that you’ll not actually have to visit the restaurants to enjoy food from The Hay Merchant, El Tiempo Cantina, Hugs & Donuts, and more.

Unlike other delivery services, whose fees range from $2 to $7 per delivery, PrimeNow deliveries will be free for those that have paid the $100 for Amazon Prime perks. Notably, Amazon will not mark up menu items’ prices, which other services are unabashedly guilty of.

PrimeNow delivery is officially available in Houston as of today. To see if it’s in your area, you’ll have to download the PrimeNow app and look for a "Restaurants" option.
