MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Those wanting delicious local cuisine without having to leave the comfort of their home are now in luck.

Uber Eats has launched in Myrtle Beach, according to information on the company’s website. It's something restauranteur Larry Bond has been working to bring to the area for months.

“I first got involved in Uber Eats in my restaurant in Miami and it made up probably 50 percent of my business there," Bond said. “Maybe a year and a half ago, I started reaching out to Uber and said, 'Hey, let’s get Myrtle Beach involved.'”

A number of popular Grand Strand eateries are listed, including: ART Burger Sushi Bar, Simply Southern Smokehouse, Gordos Tacos and Tequila, and Shwarma Company Restaurant.

Those wanting to take advantage of the delivery service first need to download the Uber Eats app or visit the website. Then, they search for participating restaurants.

Once that eatery has been found, the customer places their order through the app and pays with their Uber account.

Finally, they can track their food in real time.

“I think it’s going to do fantastic, especially in the summertime," Bond said. "A lot of our locals don’t want to fight traffic to get to some of our popular restaurants. In the wintertime when it's cold, if they want to stay in, they can order Uber Eats and they’ll bring it right to them. It’s very convenient," said Bond.
