The Bay Area is home to some of the country’s best restaurants.

However, office lunch delivery is a whole other story. Finding a restaurant that can quickly deliver meals to an entire workplace is a bit more challenging. We’ve rounded up a list of places that have been proven to deliver high-quality food in a timely matter to offices of all sizes. Consider one of these tasty options for your next office lunch…
The Grill House | Redwood City
This award-winning, family-owned restaurant is the home of Redwood City’s Best Burger, a fresh ground, 6-ounce burger patty that is seasoned and grilled over an open flame then served on a fresh-baked potato pepper bun. Customize your burger by picking from a selection of dozens of toppings and sauces, or choose from their extensive burger menu that features standouts such as the Siracha Burger and the Hickory Burger, amongst many other tasty options. For the burger traditionalist, the GH Burger keeps it simple with Grill House in-house spread, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and your choice of cheese.
Starbird Chicken | San Francisco
A restaurant chain exclusive to the Bay Area, Starbird has perfected the art of fried chicken. Their poultry is locally raised, sustainably farmed, and always antibiotic-free. From tenders and sandwiches to chicken salads and tacos, Starbird’s chicken is hand-breaded in their secret blend of gluten-free flour and spices, creating a delightfully crispy crunch with every bite. Craving some heat? Try their new Nashville Hot lineup! Don’t forget to add one of their famous house-made dipping sauces (or two… or three…) to your order.

Les Gourmands Bakery | San Francisco
An order from Les Gourmands will instantly transport your tastebuds to Paris. Fifth-generation family bakers moved to San Francisco with the goal of sharing their heritage of French baking with the local community – and there is no denying that they have succeeded! From croissants and puff pastries to sandwiches made on homemade French bread, everything on their menu is très delicious. They even offer savory French classics like Croque monsieur. Bon Appétit!
The Argentum Project | San Francisco
The Argentum Project offers a slice of Greece right here in the Bay Area. This Greek-style coffee cafe serves breakfast and lunch on weekdays, but don’t try to order on Saturday or Sunday – they are closed on weekends! Their menu features authentic Greek specialties such as pita souvlakis and koulouri sandwiches, but they are perhaps best known for their award-winning, house-made authentic Greek yogurt and baked goods that include hortopita, spanakopita, bougatsa, tahinopita and more!
Curry Up Now | San Francisco
The legend of Curry Up Now is quickly growing. The modern Indian street food chain now has locations all over the Bay Area and beyond. Their popularity is well earned. Curry Up Now puts a twist on traditional Indian flavors like tikka masala and butter chicken by remaking them in an innovative and recognizable fashion. From street snacks such as their “Itsy Bitsy Naan Bits” and “Bombay Maggi Noodles” to huge Thali Platters and signature dishes like their Deconstructed Samosa, it won’t be hard to find your new go-to lunch dish at Curry Up Now.

All of their food is free of dairy and nuts, and gluten-free and vegan options are available.
Il Casaro Pizzeria & Mozzarella Bar | San Francisco
There is no shortage of great pizza in the Bay Area, but Il Casaro might just take the cake (err… cheese?) Their menu may be on the smaller side, but that’s ok because you order from Il Casaro for one reason and one reason only – their incredible Neapolitan style pizza. Seriously, does anything beat that crispy, delicate, lightly charred thin crust? We think not. It’s hard to go wrong with a classic Margherita pie, but if you insist on more toppings, their prosciutto pizza is also a great choice.
Ramen Underground | San Francisco
Look no further for authentic and healthy ramen in San Francisco. Ramen Underground is here and well, its popularity amongst office workers in the Financial District indicates that it isn’t exactly laying low any longer. The only entree they offer is ramen, and boy are they good at making it! Choose from chicken, vegetable or tonkatsu broth for your noodle bowl and your choice of toppings, or select a dish right from the menu.
