For those people who wished Uber drivers could just pick up a meal for them and deliver it to their houses, those dreams have come true with the launch of UberEats.

UberEats debuted on April 28th in four cities: Barcelona, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York City.

All a user has to do is access the Uber mobile app, then move to the EATS option. The user will then need to pin their location or enter their address. After those steps are completed, users can view menus of select restaurants in their area, place an order, and the meal is supposed to arrive at their home in ten minutes or less.

The payment for the meal is cashless and there is a $3 delivery fee–$4 in New York—but the good news is that no additional tip is expected. Uber only asks that you give ratings for each driver, based on how well he or she performed their service.

UberEats is currently only available in select parts of Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Austin, Toronto, and Barcelona. Each city has different times when UberEats is available.

For example, in Chicago, a user can order lunch from 11am-2pm on weekdays and can also order dinner Monday through Thursday from 6-9pm.

Users are required to meet the driver in front of their home to grab their meal.
