Food.com, the leading online source for food and dining information and services, offers a convenient service to hungry students who are returning to campus life this Fall. By visiting www.food.com, students can search for information on restaurants in their area, order takeout or delivery online from local restaurants, and read cooking and entertaining tips. The website is designed to act as a food resource for students on the go or on the couch.

Order Food Online

To simplify the ordering process, Food.com has designed a “My Food.com” section. It saves addresses, allowing students to easily search takeout and delivery options. In addition, “My Food.com” enables students to build a “usual orders” section, build a “favorite restaurants” section, and view past orders.

Search for Restaurants

Food.com’s Dining Guide lists over 400,000 restaurants across the country. Students can search this up-to-date database of restaurants by city and state, cuisine, and restaurant name. They can also refine their restaurant search to show only restaurants within certain proximity by entering a street address and choosing any distance from 1/8 of a mile to 30 miles. By clicking on a restaurant name, a student can view restaurant location and phone number, rate the restaurant for food quality, service, and ambiance, print out a map to the restaurant, and send the restaurant profile to a friend.

Cooking and Entertaining Tips

Food.com offers an assortment of food editorial, including tips for dining out, entertaining, and cooking. The searchable recipe and cocktail database is a valuable resource for the party planner, as well as Food.com’s weekly menu and cocktail suggestions. The site also lists the top 10 hottest restaurants in major cities across the country — a helpful resource for the dating scene.
