Delivery fees may vary slightly depending on the size of your order. Our delivery charge is not a tip or gratuity provided to the driver. Please consider tipping your driver in appreciation of great service.

Do meals contain allergens?

Some meals contain allergens. Allergens, like nuts, are often times separated inside the product container in a sauce cup with a lid. Allergens are disclosed in meal descriptions. All products are prepared in a facility where nuts are present and residual cross contamination could be possible. At this time, nutritional information is not available for our products, but we are working towards providing this in the future. Ingredient and allergen information is always disclosed.
