Joe’s Italian Ristorante in Long Beach and Mario’s Italian Restaurant in Hattiesburg went to Instagram two days ago with separate posts that had the same message.
After some deliberation, we have decided to stop interfacing with all online food delivery services, immediately.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Although some of them may still have our menus on their site, we have no contact with them and are unable to receive and fulfill any online orders.
Alternative options are being discussed and we will update you all if anything changes.
Thank you again for your support.
The restaurants’ partnerships with the delivery services ended on Saturday, 2-1-20.
The image at the top of this post was screengrabbed and Joe’s and Mario’s used it on Instagram. Joe’s ran its own logo atop the image and Mario’s also displayed its logo on the image.
Joe’s and Mario’s didn’t name the names of the delivery services. I won’t attempt to name names. I guess all of us can figure out the names.
