How do I tip the driver?
Our drivers use their own vehicles and gas. They work hard to assure that your meal is delivered to you promptly professionally. As with all food service wait staff, they rely on tips as their major source of income. Unlike restaurant wait staff, our drivers do not serve multiple tables. They dedicate themselves exclusively to your order. The entire delivery process for our drivers from start to finish can take up to one hour.
A 18-20% gratuity is suggested on all orders. Our drivers sincerely appreciate your generous consideration.
Whether you are paying with a credit card or cash, the tip may be added to your total or you may choose to tip in cash.

I have a problem with my order, what should I do?
If there are any problems with your order, you must call us within 15 minutes of the order being delivered. We will confirm with the restaurant regarding the mistake. Once we verify with the restaurant that the problem was on their end, we will either coordinate with your self-employed delivery professional to re-deliver the missing/incorrect item, or refund you the amount. If your delivery professional has to re-deliver, you must give the driver the incorrect item. If the incorrect item is not provided or was correct after inspection, you will be charged for both items.
We do not issue refunds for orders. Should you have an issue with your food, we will be happy to speak with the restaurant to assist in a refund. We are contractually obligated to not refund any orders without consent from the restaurant.
