Kitchener Waterloo Get Ready To Skip The Dishes!


As many of you know both Diane and I work full time, but provide media coverage for events most evenings and weekends.  This doesn’t leave a lot of time for cooking dinner in between. Last week before heading to the Alan Doyle concert we tried out SKIP THE DISHES to save us both time and energy. Skip The Dishes is an online restaurant/food establishment platform that arranges pickup or delivery of your requested meal.  They have over 20 locations in Canada and the service is now available in Kitchener Waterloo.  After we placed our order for delivery, we received a meal in about 30 minutes and had minimal clean up after. It was quick and convenient and a great option for busy families.  You can place an order to pick up on your way home, or if you are already at your house you can have your meal delivered to your home.

*Please note, delivery times and delivery charges vary depending on the restaurant you choose and the day of the week it is being ordered.  Expect longer wait times on weekends.

The Steps To Save On Your Skip The Dishes Order


Skip The Dishes is offering 10% off your order with the promo code THOSE2GIRLS. Below are simple steps to place an order (using a computer, if using a phone most options take up the full screen)

1.      Head to the Skip The Dishes Website https://www.skipthedishes.com

2.      In the top right corner click LOG IN (to make it easy I used the facebook login)

3.      In the middle of the page, choose either delivery or pickup. Then type in your address. Don’t worry that there is a place for a unit number you can put that in later. You still have to add your address if it is pickup so that you can advance to the next step. It is what lets you know which options are available for your city.

4.      A pop up window with a map will come up. Next click on the red bar that says FIND RESTAURANTS under the map.

5.      A list of local choices will come up for you. In the top right corner, you can also pick a heading to get your listing sorted by delivery times or delivery charges.

6.      Now you can start clicking on the restaurants listed to see what they are offering for Skip The Dishes customers.

7.      Once you have decided on a restaurant, make your meal selections

8.      Before you click the ADD TO ORDER bar, you can select the quantity of meals (IE if you are getting identical dishes) and any instructions you wish the restaurant to have in regards to your food selections.

9.      After your order is complete, in the top right corner of your screen, click CHECKOUT

10.  On this screen you will see a map. If you chose the delivery option, under the map, fill in the fields for your delivery driver IE side door, unit number, buzz code etc. (to ensure that there would not be an issue I also put in the phone number of the place it’s being delivered to)

11.  The next box is where you select the amount to tip your driver (if the order was placed for delivery)

12.  NOW THIS IS WHERE YOU GET TO SAVE 10% in the box that says Have a Voucher? Type in THOSE2GIRLS and your price will be adjusted accordingly.

13.  Then select to proceed to payment.  There you can select the method of payment that works best for you.

14.  After the payment is processed you can watch real time updates of the courier arriving to pick up your order at the establishment and delivering it to you!

Once the order arrives, enjoy it knowing that there’s not a sink full of dishes waiting for you after.

  1. While delivery isn't available in my area, pick up is. There are lots of restaurants near by that we haven't tried, and this would be a great way to do it! With the warmer weather coming, who wants to turn on the stove?

  6. I love that there are soooo many options - whatever I'm craving they can bring it to me - gourmet pizza, Frat Burger, East African Cafe, Bombay Bhel - fantastic! My kids are picky eaters, so being able to get our more exotic wishes delivered would be great for us.

  24. This site seems to have a pretty stellar restaurant selection and I am frequently too wiped/lazy and resort to take out - so this is a good new option.
