Featured EatStreeter: Chris Morgan

 

Loyal customers are the foundation of EatStreet. Without you all, food delivery would still be in the Dark Ages. Recently, we took a few minutes to get to know one of our best customers, Chris Morgan, a 22-year old student the University of Madison-Wisconsin with a voracious appetite. Here’s a quick view into his life and the role that pizza rolls, Mount Everest, and Anthony Bourdain play in it.

Bites & Beverages: Best Brews with Burgers

This is the first-ever installment of Dishin’ It Out’s “Bites & Beverages” feature. Every few weeks, we’ll take a look at the best things to drink with the best things to eat. Today, we’re paying homage to that bastion of between-bun goodness–the burger.

Going with the classic cheddar cheeseburger? Maybe a slice of tomato and some crisp lettuce for extra crunch? Accompany it with an amber or brown ale. They’re drinkable, all-purpose beers with a delicate balance of sweet maltiness and bitter hoppiness. And if you’re more into hopps than I am, an IPA would also pair nicely.

Graffeati

EatStreeters are among the goofiest, silliest, wittiest people on the planet. Want proof? Just have a look at some of our best order comments from the past week. We like to call these clever special requests “Graffeati.”

“My brother may need wet naps since he’s kinda a slob when it comes to sauces.” – Shannon T., Oshkosh, WI

We found it funny that she needed to explain her need for additional wet naps. It’s okay, you’re eating wings and it might get sloppy! No need to justify needing extra wet naps, that’s just the way it goes in the world of wings.

Top 5 Grilled Foods

The summer season is upon us. What better way to celebrate than by consuming some of the signature delicacies of summer? And what better way to prepare them than by grilling? While there are plenty of things that you can throw on a grill, we at EatStreet have decided to narrow down the list to a Top 5 collection of the very best grilled foods.

#5: Shish Kabobs. These provide you with the most options when grilling. You can either prepare them ahead of time, or each person can make their own using any combination of beef, pork, chicken, shrimp, veggies, fruit, and potatoes.  The possibilities are endless!

#4: Hot Dogs & Brats. What better food to cook on your grill than the staple of baseball games?  Not only are they decently priced, but they’re also easy to cook in large batches, allowing you to please a hungry crowd.  My personal favorite is a venison brat.

Megabites: Introduction

Hi EatStreeters!  I’m Eric Martell, co-founder and COO of EatStreet.  I’ll lead off with a joke:

Q: What did the hungry computer eat?

A: Chips!  One byte at a time.

I’m sure that’s the funniest thing you’ve read all day!

As Dishin’ it Out progresses, I’ll be writing posts called “Megabites.” I’ll be talking about our product and sharing exciting news from our company.  Today, however, I’ll just start with a brief blurb about the three EatStreet co-founders: Matt Howard, Alex Wyler, and myself. We started EatStreet in 2009 in Madison, WI, as BadgerBites, for three reasons.

101 Ways to Give Back

It may come as a surprise to you that the minds behind EatStreet are preoccupied with more than just the quick alleviation of your hunger pangs. While providing you with the simplest route to local takeout and delivery may be our bread and butter, we also like to dish out a more common, less edible form of currency – charitable checks.

When our three co-founders forged a fledgling website in 2010 called “BadgerBites,” they also formed our Give Back Program, wherein EatStreet promised to donate 5% of its profits to local non-profit and student organizations. We let you decide where the donation goes. Every time you place an order on our website, you are presented with a list of our partnering organizations. You then choose who receives the 5% of profits from your order.
