There’s a new business that's now open in Twin Falls that will give you more options for takeout.The concepts is pretty simple:

Twin Falls Food Express hosts Twin Falls area restaurant menus on their website. Just add items to your cart, and order your food directly through Twin Falls Food Express.  The cost for the service is a $5 delivery charge plus a percentage of the food bill.  Phone-in orders are also welcome.

The delivery charge hits you pretty hard for single orders but I can see this being a handy option for a family or offices that want something other than pizza, Chinese or subs. Here's how a single order breaks down.

I ordered bacon and eggs for breakfast from the Ground Round. Here's my tab.

$7.00 Bacon and Eggs
$1.47 Tax and services
$5.00 Delivery
$0.40 Processing
$3.00 tip (optional)
$16.87 Total

So yeah, it's cheaper to drive there and pick it up, but I expect to pay a price for the convenience of having someone else go get my food. I also could've saved 3 bucks by not tipping but I always feel compelled to tip.

Some of the cool features you're paying for include email notifications, confirming when your driver has arrived at the restaurant to pickup your order and when they leave to deliver. Another nice thing about the site is that it itemizes your order so you can clearly see the fees associated with your delivery before you submit the order.

Twin Falls Food Express will provide deliveries to homes and businesses in the 83301/83303 zip codes, with the possibility of expanding to other areas in the future.
