I eat out a lot—maybe too often—and that’s not uncommon for a business traveler. One of the things that irks me when dining out, especially when I’m pressed for time, is having to wait around—first to get seated, then for the waiter to take my order, then for the food to come out, and finally to pay the bill. I know it’s a first-world problem. Well, thanks to app All Set Now (for Android and iOS), those annoyances might soon be disappearing—especially in San Francisco and now New York City, where the app has over 200 restaurants signed up.

All Set Now-partnered eateries allow users to browse their menus, order food, choose their dining time, and pay the check (including tip) all in advance using a phone. That way, when they arrive to the restaurant, they won’t have to wait around. It’s perfect for those on the run. You can even invite your friends/colleagues to join, which means in addition to everything else, you can split your bills.

The tag line is “No more waiting for a table, food and check. In-and-out in under 30 minutes. Delicious meals.” I can’t wait until they expand to Los Angeles.

Note: I tried signing up and went through all the steps, but I never received my text with the four number access code. I wonder if it’s because I have a 310 number?
