You Can Now Order Food on Facebook

Step aside, Seamless. You can now order food right on Facebook, the social network announced Friday.

The next time a friend's check-in at Chiptole has you hankering for some queso dip, order it without ever leaving the social network.

"People already go to Facebook to figure out what to eat by reading about nearby restaurants, and seeing what their friends say about them," Facebook VP of Local Alex Himel wrote in a blog post. "So, we're making it even easier."

Facebook has been testing this feature since last year, and is now rolling it out everywhere in the US on iOS, Android, and the desktop. You can order food for either pickup or delivery through services like EatStreet, Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, and Olo, as well as directly from restaurants like Papa John's, Wingstop, Panera, Jack in the Box, TGI Friday's, Denny's, El Pollo Loco, Five Guys, Jimmy John's, and, yes, Chiptole.

For a visual demo of how to order food on Facebook, check out the video below.

To view nearby restaurants, just visit the Order Food section in the Explore menu. Then, when you find something that sounds yummy, select Start Order. If the restaurant offers takeout and delivery from multiple services, you can select the one you want to use. If you already have an account for that service, sign in to complete your order; if you don't have an account, sign up without leaving the Facebook app.

Meanwhile, just in case you didn't already know, you can also order food right from Google search results and Google Maps.
