Amazon launched its one-hour delivery service in Atlanta on Thursday.

Atlanta is only the fifth city in the country to get Amazon Prime Now – joining New York City, Baltimore, Dallas and Miami. But is it worth using?

“It goes, 'Hello M, What do you need today?' Searching for Dog Food," Waits said. "It says: 71 results.”
