The Tampa International Airport is home to some of the most revered food hubs in the city of Tampa. Local staples such as Mise En Place, The Columbia, Goody Goody Burgers, Ducky’s, and Bella’s are all available at various terminals. Even Guy Harvey with its iconic cylindrical aquarium has a space inside one of TPA’s terminals.

The Airport’s TPA to Go mobile-ordering program, which allows guests to purchase food, drinks and other items in advance for pickup, is now available on Uber Eats, thanks to a new partnership with the company. Order your favorite eats in advance and pick it up at your convenience. This is way less stressful than hopping in line with just 15 minutes to boarding time.

Users can place an order quickly and reliably ahead of time at 18 restaurants and 4 retailers, which can be a welcome time-saving option, especially during Spring Break, which is TPA’s busiest travel season of the year. The Airport expects as many as 90,000 passengers on peak days during the period between March 7 and April 10.

Order from TPA’s top restaurants in advance and on the move

TPA to Go is available to anyone at or headed to the Airport, including passengers, flight crews and Airport staff. Travelers can set TPA as their location before they arrive, choose items from their favorite eatery or shop and have it ready for pickup when they get there.

“We’re thrilled that TPA travelers can now enjoy greater and more convenient access to our award-winning concessions program,” Airport VP of Concessions and Commercial Parking Laurie Noyes said. “Our partnership with Uber Eats is another way we’re elevating the guest experience by making shopping and dining at TPA easier and faster, which is a great value for our customers.”

TPA is Uber’s first official U.S. airport partner, after working successfully at Toronto Pearson Airport in Canada and pilot programs at John Glenn Columbus International Airport in Ohio and Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina.

Editor’s note: The story initially stated that delivery was also available through TPA to Go. This is not the case anymore through the partnership with Uber Eats.
