Food-truck customers and senior citizens aren't the only people eating meals on wheels these days. Last month, Burger King launched an in-home food-delivery service in Sacramento. In case you are tempted to try BK Delivers, but would rather eat something much tastier and healthier, here's another option: A national company called Eat24 lists plenty of restaurants in the region that can be called when there isn't time to cook for oneself—let alone a family. Eat24's Sacramento-specific section of its website allows users to order from restaurants online, and the company's app—The Hunger App—helps you to see what food is around you and order from a smartphone or tablet. Sacramento's Eat24 page (http://sacramento.eat24hours.com) includes both chains (Chevys, Togo's, Rubio's) and local restaurants (Ma Jong's Asian Diner, Sandra Dee's Bar-B-Que & Seafood, Roma's Pizzeria), and delivery charges range from free to $5.99.
