Taco Bell now delivers.

The fast food giant launched a delivery service on Wednesday in more than 90 cities across Los Angeles, Orange County, the Bay Area, and Dallas thanks to a partnership with Palo Alto-based startup DoorDash.

“Taco Bell has always been about value and convenience, and we believe delivery is the next step in catering to today’s on-demand culture that’s driving consumer behavior,” Taco Bell CEO Brian Niccol said in a statement.

Customers in those regions can submit an order from more than 200 Taco Bell restaurants on the DoorDash app, which also features hundreds of other eateries to pick from. The two companies plan on rolling out the delivery service nationwide.

Re/code notes a $3.99 delivery fee, along with extra costs for individual items.

This is Taco Bell’s first time partnering with a third-party delivery service and is the first national partnership for DoorDash, one of many companies vying to deliver food to your doorstep. The delivery deal is similar to what Postmates, a leader in the food delivery space that just raised $80 million, inked with Chipotle and Starbucks earlier this year.

DoorDash was founded in 2013 and has raised nearly $60 million to date. It is also testing a grocery delivery service.

Taco Bell launched mobile ordering this past October. No word on when the company will start delivering food in Washington and Colorado, where recreational marijuana is legal.
