New Yorkers are getting lunch delivered with a side of snark after Grubhub’s delivery snafu.

Uber Eats sent an email to users this week with the subject line: “There’s no such thing as free lunch” with a winking emoji and a $25 coupon. Fast-casual restaurant chain Dig sent users a message asking “Still hangry from Tuesday?” encouraging them to download the chain’s mobile app with a referral discount.
