More Delivery Services in Jersey City!

Delivery is a pretty big deal in Jersey City, especially these last couple weeks as temperatures have frequently dropped to the single digits. But as much as the restaurant scene around here is exploding, delivery options still leave a lot to be desired with limited choices and delivery areas.

Well, now it looks like we've got some changes coming. A couple of weeks ago, twitter friend Joel/nemobeatz told me about a couple of alternative delivery options based in Jersey City: FastBoy Delivery and The FooDeliveryBoss, As more locally based and specialized delivery services, they offer different and more unique services than say, your typical or Seamless.
