AND honestly probably a better source than asking pilots where to eat.
Buy a portable oven
Makes for a great conversation piece on transcons while you reheat 3 day old wet salmon you've been dragging around the concourse
I've used Grubhub a bunch. It's good in a pinch, but I honestly can't say I've ever had them take less than an hour to deliver anything. But at weird hours and/or in a bad neighborhood they are a good option.
Actually just the other day in CVG I discovered www.orderup.com/ Same general thing, but you can track your driver on a map just like Uber.
Yelp delivery didn't cover you? When I was in Chicago a couple months ago I got introduced to that wonderfulness.
UberEATS is awesome where you can find it.
For the hideous smokers out there: 9 times out of 10, a Courtyard is going to have a balcony room available. Dealing with the front desk is hit or miss (mostly miss). Ask for a manager. Go full "I'm Captain Dudley McImportantguy and I'm a Platinum Member, cough cough wheeze. I REQUIRE a balcony room, sir. *cough* *hack* REQUIRE, sir!" I'm like 99/100 on that strategy.
Aprende a hablar español un poco. Hace maravillas.
Or another prevalent language.
Try the vent in the bathroom? Sucks like a Hoover. Nobody ever went to hell for smoking in the stairwell either. Just sayin.
This. Oh my goodness, this. And never use the coffe maker in the room. At some point in its history, a young man, angry at his dad, brewed his pee.
That's surprisingly not the worst thing to happen to the hotel coffee pot.
Postmates as well
Don't even need a hacked one, I'm sitting in my hotel right now watching "the ranch" on Netflix with mine.
Hiking clothes from somewhere like REI or Eastern Mountain sports are great for the road. Quick drying, lightweight, and often have some anti-stank technology so you can wear them for a few days.
Use one of these instead of the hotel coffee maker.
I carry plastic bags for remote condoms.
There are a number of noise makers on the internet for sleep. I use a thunderstorm app on my firestick to sleep to from Amazon. Have a bunch on my iPad as well.
Collapsing bowls that are microwaveable. You can use that to cook food from the local grocery store instead of eating out all the time.
Secrets of daily regularity to avoid constipation or worse, Montezuma's revenge.
This is a Health and Fitness issue and or for the 'My Flight Surgeon (last seen: Feb 11, 2016)', yet not addressed. For me, it has been greens, legumes, H2O, and execise.
DoorDash. Where available.

And download the Terrarium TV app which is castable. It literally has everything.
DIRECTV now is a great new program. I pay $30 a month for 100 channels. Get all the latest and greatest. Discovery, Syfy, Cartoon Network, Fox News, HBO, etc. runs off my fire stick or iPad so I can take the walking dead with me on the road.
How well is it working? The reviews a few months ago were terrible.
Always empty the room iron. Had a skipper on an overnight discover someone thought it would be funny to pee in into the water reservoir of the iron. Needless to say, pee steam and the subsequent staining doesn't bode will on the last day of a 5 day trip.
