Favor reveals Houston's most popular food and drink deliveries in 2019

In 2019, no one has to let a food craving go unsatisfied. After all, a host of delivery apps exist to provide potables and comestibles at all hours of the day and night. 

Favor, the delivery service owned by Texas grocer H-E-B, sent along some of this year's most popular deliveries. Not surprisingly, they show that Houstonians like to have food delivered that travels well such as chicken tenders, tacos, and burgers, but chips and queso is the single most popular food item. 

We also like White Claw. People ordered 32,388 cans of the spiked seltzer; black cherry and mango are the most popular flavors. Bud Light is the most popular beer overall, and good old Shiner Bock tops the list of Texas brews sold. 

Speed of delivery also helps determine popularity, which means different neighborhoods have different favorite places. In EaDo, that means Rodeo Goat reigns supreme, while The Rice Box rules The Heights. Uptown Sushi leads the way for the Galleria, and Velvet Taco is Montrose's most popular option.

Need a pick-me-up? Gatorade, coffee, and iced tea are the most popular non-alcoholic beverages. When it's snack time, people like things sweet or spicy: Chester's Hot Fries, Takis Fuego, and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups all make the top five.
