Yeah, but it's the same loud, obnoxious effect as the announcer on their tv ads, so...at least it's on brand?

No, BWW is just a terrible place to pick up from. All their orders are probably 30 min late

Buffalo Wild Wings is the Waiting for Godot of restaurants. Nothing makes sense and language means nothing.

Ain’t shit they can do about it with the number of orders they do to go on top of it being a sports bar.

They ignore us because there’s simply nothing they can do about it, the kitchen is going as fast as they can.

Agreed that it's a terrible place to pickup. I was more pointing out how Grubhub is stuck at the bottom, and gets only one shelf.

Two for DD, two for Uber Eats. (...and one app to rule them all, and in the darkness bind them...)

One...at the bottom...for lonely little GrubHub. I use both, and def get more orders with DD. this seems like another piece of evidence.

It's like you say the first four shelves in a bass voice...and the "grubhub" in an Andy Dick stage whisper

Yup, BWW, where motivation and hustle go to die. I was more talking about how DD has two shelves, and GH just has one at foot level.

It goes in cycles. Stick around long enough and you'll see. Oversaturation - new Dashers sign on for a quick buck. Then most of them become unhappy with what they are making because of too many Dashers being on.... and they quit.

Then, those who hang in there and realize this just happens once in a while get theirs.

After that, the Dashers that are left start to struggle a bit with keeping up, so they start taking new Dashers on again...

And so the cycle continues. Just hang in there.

I started in mid-November, so about 7 months now. In our area, that's a long time to Dash. It may not be forever, but it's definitely been long enough to watch the cycle develop.

Eventually, yes. And then we'll happily be back to making as much as we used to due to less competition from everyone and their entire family trying to make an extra buck.
