The Most Popular Uber Eats Quarantine Orders by State

Order some takeout during quarantine—for your fellow countrymen!

The most outlandish thing about a global pandemic is that as the world grinds to a halt, I’m still allowed, nay, encouraged even, to get takeout. It is actually my civic duty and suddenly I am this country’s most upstanding citizen—a patriot, really. And as a patriot, I’ve compiled a list of America’s favorite Uber Eats orders. By the way, here’s how to safely enjoy takeout when you’re feeling the munchies comin’ on.

All 50 States’ Favorite Uber Eats Orders

Independent eateries across the country are experiencing a massive downturn as takeout orders become their only source of revenue—but multi-million dollar company Uber Eats is experiencing a surge. The food delivery service saw a 10 percent increase in sales and 30 percent increase in their customer base just a few weeks into quarantine. These are the best food delivery services to try.

Uber Eats recently released a list of the cuisine most hankered for during quarantine in 35 states. As a lifelong takeout aficionado and Taurus, this garnered my rapt attention. Some of its findings were to be expected: French fries (or some variation) were the most frequently delivered food in nine states, and Pennsylvania’s favorite order was a Philly cheesesteak. Others, not so much—residents of Iowa love their poké bowls and Rhode Islanders just want hotdogs, apparently. Very interesting findings indeed, especially when you stack them up against the most iconic food from every state.
