San Mateo Delivery Options

Hi. I'm looking for a range of delivery options for friends who are about to become new parents and recently moved to San Mateo. They eat everything in general (ethnic, spicy, have had a csa box, etc), but am not sure how one's appetite is after giving birth. Any other take-out and food delivery ideas for the area would also be appreciated. Thanks.

    they have a san mateo office.

    If you're doing this as a special treat, there's always the trick of ordering togo via credit card, then sending a prepaid cab to the restaurant. Should work for any restaurant.

    1. There are tons of ethnic places, all of which will do take out. There must be 40 or 50 restaurants on 3rd, 4th and 2nd as well as cross streets. A search would give lots of info if they want to get reviews - Hotaru (japanese), Sushi Sam (more expensive) and Little Schezuen on 4th (which has the advantage of a free parking lot - really helpful before 6pm) are some of my favorites, but there are lots and lots of choices.
      I would avoid Joy Restaurant (japanese not Joy Luck - chinese), though, since I had a bone in my sashimi!

      Not aware of any delivery except maybe pizza -- but stay aware from Domino's - made the mistake of getting pizza there- not only did they get the order wrong but the ?cheese was some sort of white glop that didn't melt and tasted like wallpaper paste.

      1. Here is a link to the listing of restaurants in downtown San Mateo. It doesn't look very current as it still lists Chef Wai, which I believe has closed. Nevertheless, it's a good starting point. I know for sure Amici's delivers, and I think North Beach Pizza does as well.

        1. In terms of delivery:
          Amici's Pizza

          Pollo Supremo (chicken with sides)
          Windy City Pizza (Chicago style)
          Bonne Sante (burgers; one will feed two people)

          Windy City Pizza
          35 Bovet Rd, San Mateo, CA 94402

          Amici's East Coast Pizzeria
          69 E 3rd Ave, San Mateo, CA 94401

          Pollo Supremo
          901 S B St, San Mateo, CA

          Bonne Sante
          1184 Broadway, Burlingame, CA 94010

          1. I know original buffalo wings on B St. delivers. They have burgers on their menu also.

            Original Buffalo Wings
            150 S B St, San Mateo, CA 94401
