Just as Amazon, David Chang and Uber are getting into the delivery game, Seamless, perhaps the most OG of delivery services, is getting in on the action, too.

Seamless and GrubHub, its parent company, have always been the connectors in the delivery game, essentially providing a go-between for restaurants and customers who don't want to get off the couch (or speak to an actual human being). Now, Seamless is introducing its turnkey service to Brooklyn and Queens (it's already under way in Chicago and a number of smaller markets), where its drivers will personally deliver food to your door, Grub Street reports.

To kick things off, the team is delivering from The Original Ramen Burger, barbecue spot Mighty Quinn's, vegetable haven No. 7, Caribbean spot Glady's and a handful of other places that easily outshine a box of generic take-out noodles. Users are charged $0.99 for the delivery, but that rate in other markets is between $1.50 and $3, so that number could go up over time.

The battle for delivery supremacy is just getting started, so who will come out on top is anyone's guess. In the meantime, we'll take two orders of barbecue, please.
