The Best Sites for Any Delivery Need

From meat and snacks to coffee and booze

The message is clear: stay home, stay put. But we all have needs and desires, right? Thankfully, there are still plenty of services that are up and running. Especially when grocery stores these days are hit-or-miss, these delivery companies offer quality food and drink, dropped safely at your doorstep. Trust us when we say that self-isolating is a whole lot easier with a rib-eye steak and a nice bottle of bourbon. And if you need some snacks or household cleaners to finally tackle those home projects you've been planning ... they've got you covered for that too. Herewith a few of our favorites.

Delivery Services

Meat

Allen Brothers

These old school purveyors have been providing USDA prime beef to high-end restaurants and discerning meat lovers since 1893. Along with steaks, they've also got poultry, seafood and lamb—all in stock and ready to ship. And currently, you'll score free steak burgers or ribeye steaks by spending at least $149.

Allen Brothers

Porter Road

This online butcher shop specializes in pasture-raised meats free of hormones and antibiotics. They're currently offering free shipping on their subscription boxes (sent every two, four or eight weeks) or you could choose à la carte from their unique cuts and meat blends—the beef vs bacon and coarsely-cut chili grind are particularly nice.

Chicago Steak Company

With a longheld reputation for their prized steaks from Mid-West raised heritage cattle, this mail-order company is currently offering free shipping on orders of $99 or more, along with a 20% off discount (with code FREEZER) on what they call "freezer fillers"—staples like chicken breasts, pork chops and boneless baby ribeyes.

Coffee

Bixby Roasting Co.

In a world of coffee snobs, Bixby doesn't discriminate. They offer gourmet whole beans and fresh ground coffee, naturally, but they also sell fresh-packed Keurig compatible pods, along with high quality single-serve steeping coffee bags. It's specialty coffee, no matter how you want to make it. Or as the company says, "However you make your coffee is how we make your coffee."

From $5 at
Bixby Roasting Co.

Trade

This subscription service asks how you take your coffee and then makes smart suggestions based on your taste. They've pulled together over 400 incredible coffees (along with cold brew selections) from local roasters across the nation and allow you to discover new and comforting coffees as often as you like. They also sell some varieties in five-pound bags, if you really want to stock up.

Liquor

Drizly

Like the GrubHub of booze, Drizly offers all spirits, beer, wine—even mixers and ice—from your local liquor stores. This means your local craft brews are likely available. Serving over 180 markets coast to coast, they're among the fastest to deliver, too, guaranteeing 60-minute delivery for when you really need that drink ASAP.

Wine

Vivino

Vivino is the world's most downloaded wine app and offers the most variety when it comes to ordering wine. Connected to over 500 merchants, it shows you the same wine on sale at various stores, so you'll always get the best price. And the customer-based reviews help you make an informed choice when trying new bottles.

Snacks

Universal Yums

We're not crazy about the name, but the concept is legit. Because we never come home from an overseas trip without a checked bag half-full of edible treats. Now that we're grounded, we're relying on this service that sends curated eats from a different country each month. Shipping is free and each box comes with a booklet packed with info and trivia about the snacks' country of origin.

From $13.75 per box at
Universal Yums

Patagonia Provisions

Patagonia, long purveyors of amazing outerwear and hardwearing gear, has recently gotten into the snack game with responsibly sourced foods that serve you just as well at home as on the trail. That means everything from breakfast grains and buffalo jerky to wild salmon and dried fruit.

From $48 at

Household Essentials

If you need hard-to-find household items (hand sanitizer, paper towels), this online service sells sustainable options in handsome, minimalist packaging that is designed to look good in your space, rather than stand out on a drug store shelf.
