Want the cheapest, quickest version of this delivered to your doorstep? Bootler can help.

Another element of convenience has entered the on-demand food delivery scene. Enter Chicago-based Bootler, which launched earlier this month in select locations throughout the Bay area.

Similar to travel-related booking websites like Kayak or Orbitz but for cuisine, Bootler aggregates data from several delivery services (think GrubHub, Bite Squad, Postmates and EatStreet) to organize their offerings in one place.

It’s like a search engine for your takeout, essentially — allowing users to pursue a long list of restaurants that offer delivery in their neighborhood, then do a side-by-side comparison of which provider has the best price and fastest arrival time.

A quick search on the Bootler website brings up several results for the St. Petersburg, Tampa and Clearwater areas. Other locales such as Palm Harbor, Dunedin, Wesley Chapel and Gulfport can take advantage of the new-to-town aggregator, too.

But Bootler hasn’t reach every city around the region. Treasure Island, Lutz, Tarpon Springs and Brandon, for example, land outside of its service area, so residents should visit the site or mobile app to see if their neighborhoods are available yet.

BTW: Bootler is free, no matter how users choose to scope out the best bangs for their bucks.
