Do you ever place your takeout/delivery order online?

The future was promised in 1995’s The Net when Sandra Bullock managed to order a pizza without leaving her desktop. That’s right, she ordered a pizza delivery via the World Wide Web.

The promise of that future now seems as likely as a software savant looking like Sandra Bullock. A few years ago, Papa John’s made noise by pushing online ordering (see Trey Wingo’s surprisingly dated commercial from 2007), but most restaurants don’t go beyond reservations over the Web.

Are you still talking to a human to get your chicken fingers or do you use any restaurant’s online order system — whether it’s Urban Table or Applebee’s?
