Whether or not you live in Miami, there’s a good chance you’ve ordered an Uber. The ride-share app saves customers from pricey parking fees and long nights at bars and clubs. Sometimes drivers get lost or simply don’t show up at all, but most often, taking an Uber is a smart idea.
This year, drivers dropped off the most riders in Florida at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, shuffling thousands of locals and tourists to and from the large-scale oceanfront hotel, which is home to LIV Nightclub, StripSteak by Michael Mina, and Scott Conant’s Scarpetta.
As part of Uber’s 2018 list of the top ten drop-off destinations in Florida, five hotspots were in the Miami-Dade area. After the Fontainebleau, Dolphin Mall came in at number three and Aventura Mall at number five. Bayside Marketplace followed at number six, with Brickell City Centre rounding out the list at ten. The list didn’t include Florida airports, and statistics were counted as of December 20, 2018.
Unsurprisingly, all of the other locations on the list, including Universal Studios Florida, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom Park, Disney Springs, and Epcot, were in Orlando.
If you’re curious about Uber Eats’ most ordered restaurants in the South Florida area this year, McDonald’s regretfully took the number one slot.
However, there was a glimmer of hope: Moshi Moshi, the popular late-night Japanese/Peruvian spot in MiMo and Miami Beach came in second.
Other contenders were all fast-food spots, including Rice Mediterranean Kitchen, BurgerFi, and Chicken Kitchen. As for the most ordered items? Those were burgers, chicken wings, pizza, tacos, and tofu.
