Great so far!

Was so glad to have this app when we rolled out of a Common concert and were looking for Soul food. No more driving around in hope. Took only a couple of minutes to learn our first choice was closed so we drove right on to the second choice which had a kitchen open for another hour. The chicken and waffles was great and there was a great DJ to help us dance it off! Great app!! Folks, load it up so we can find each other!

Great for black owned businesses

I was very excited to see that they had an app for black owned businesses. I like to go out to eat a lot especially since it’s summer now. But I feel like the app doesn’t give enough options to filter. Like if I want a restaurant that is a dine in location. I can’t tell what type of restaurant it is unless I actually search the restaurant to find out more info. Sometimes when you click on something it doesn’t open. I don’t understand what some of the icons mean when there orange. There doesn’t seem to be any ratings or reviews for the restaurants for me to no if it’s worth my time. I know that the app will be updated soon and I hope that it’s better because I want to support our people.

Developer Response ,

Hi, Thank you for taking the time write this review. Our new app version was approved so you should be able to update. I hope it provides a better experience for you. We are working on ways to make the information clearer and provide more filtering options. Please leave us feedback as we are always looking to satisfy our app users and bring more customers to our business owners. We now have ratings and reviews so it will take some time for people to start documenting their experiences, but we have always had a rating system. Your the first to ask about filtering by dining type, i will make sure it gets added to our development roadmap. Currently you can filter by delivery. ~ Anthony, CEO, Co-Founder

This is so racist and offensive I wish I could give negative stars. Every single time I see an ad for this app I become just a little more offended than I was the last time!! I only downloaded the app so I could leave a review. I am SOOOOO sick of black people accusing others of being racist when they apparently think it’s perfectly ok for THEM to be racist!! I am SOOOOOOOO sick of the hypocrisy!! Tolerance is a two way street people!!!! Forget Caucasian owned businesses. Are there ANY apps for Asian owned businesses? What about Hispanic or middle eastern???? Indian?? No there are not!! If there were every black person in America would be up in arms SCREAMING racism!!! So why is it ok for you to do it??? Despite what a lot of people seem to think Americans do still have freedom of speech and I am done sitting quietly trying not to offend anyone when no one else seems to care if they offend me!!!!
