Uber to launch 'Eats' app in Boise

Last week, grocery delivery service Instacart got revved up in Boise.

Now, Uber Eats is set to launch.

The food delivery offshoot of the ride-hailing app will go online Tuesday, August 22nd according to a news release from the company. Restaurants will set their own prices and Uber will add a $5.99 charge to the order.

Uber has had a bumpy year and is currently without a full-time CEO - but continues to expand as competition from Lyft and others increases.

Uber listed just three "notable" restaurants that will be available in Boise - Flatbread, Mai Thai and Parilla. A spokesperson cofirmed Fanci Freez, Gyro Shack, Barrelhouse and Bombay Grill would also be on the app.

To use the service, users will have to download the separate Uber Eats app for iOS or Android.

An Uber rep says the service will be available "downtown as well as Eagle, NorthEnd, Meridian, and parts of Southeast Boise."
