HIT THE SPOT: A new roadside food stand, The Spot, recently opened at 918 E. Jericho Turnpike in Huntington Station. The Spot offers “fast casual food” like wings, burgers and burritos, but also has acai bowl and smoothie options. It’s open seven days a week, 11 a.m.-10 p.m., and most menu items run less than $10.

LOCAL EATS DELIVERED: Popular food delivery service UberEATS has expanded into Suffolk. The service, an offshoot of taxi service Uber, was previously exclusive to high-trafficked areas like Manhattan, but has since expanded, giving Foodies the opportunity to have their favorite restaurant’s food delivered to them, even if the eatery doesn’t usually make house calls. When the service was checked Monday morning, the list of participating eateries included local favorites like Bee-Organic, Curry Express, Roy’s Deli, Sur Argentinian Steakhouse and Zaro’s Cafe. The app, which is separate from the standard Uber app, tacks on a $4.99 delivery charge to all orders.
