Adding to the options of food delivery in Allegheny County, DoorDash is now available in numerous communities in the Pittsburgh area, including Robinson, Green Tree, Bridgeville, and Mt. Lebanon.

The on-demand destination service connecting patrons with restaurants is available from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., according to a news release.

More than 1,500 restaurants in the region are partnering with the service, including Houlihan's, PF Chang's, Buca Di Beppo, Bravo Cucina Italiana, Primanti Bros. and Wendy's, the release adds.

The service is offering an introductory free rate for first-time users, and $1.99 deliveries for the first two weeks (following the April 2 opening) in the Pittsburgh market.

Operating in more than 600 cities across the country, DoorDash says Pittsburgh is its 56th major metropolitan market.

"Delivery is something we see as the future of restaurant dining, and we are excited to be a part of it. Bringing Primanti to people's homes through DoorDash is something we are excited for as a business," Primanti Bros. manager Jim Prezioso says in a release.

"Pittsburgh has been a focus of ours for some time, and (now) customers will be able to use DoorDash to delivery from some of their favorite local restaurants. The city itself has such a rich history and culture when it comes to food, making this launch especially exciting," DoorDash CEO and co-founder Tony Xu, says in the release.

DoorDash can be downloaded for Android or iOS.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
