Amazon.com is extending their restaurant delivery service to Dallas and certain parts of New York.

Starting May 17, Dallas residents can order from of over 50 restaurants. Manhattanites can choose from over 350 restaurants spanning across the borough, from Harlem to the Financial District.

Additionally, Le Pain Quotidien has opted for Amazon Restaurants to be its “premier delivery provider” for 34 of its locations.

With one-hour or less delivery times, all deliveries are free for Amazon Prime members.

The service guarantees “transparent pricing,” with no hidden fees or menu mark-ups. Customers who do find pricing disparities with 24 hours of placing the order will received a refund for the price of the item. 

From the Prime Now website or the Prime Now mobile app, members can place orders, track the status of their delivery, and watch as “Amazon delivery partners” travel from the restaurant to the delivery address in real time. 

The Amazon Restaurants service—which was rolled out in other American cities, such as Chicago, San Diego, and San Francisco during the early months of 2016—will compete with the likes of GrubHub, Postmates, and Caviar.  

Prime members pay an annual $99 for a variety of services, including free two-day shipping, unlimited streaming access to films, TV shows, and music, storage capabilities on the Amazon Cloud Drive, and Kindle e-book lending.
