The average food delivery time varies based on size of order and time of the day. With the power of Foodgistics, we can usually quote between 60 and 90 minutes, allowing for possible incidental delays like heavy traffic, long preparation times in busy restaurants, and poor weather. We strongly recommend Lunch food delivery reservations between 11:30-12:30 be made the prior day, as that time period gets booked quickly. We also suggest planning ahead, if at all possible, to guarantee your delivery time, especially for large orders.

The food delivery charge can be slightly different based on the area you are in and the type of customer you are. For exact details call or chat with us online. Currently the typical driver delivery fee is $9.99, plus gratuity. Our ROTR Service fee is 5.99% for Business, Residential and Hotel deliveries and $14.99 flat for pharmaceutical deliveries in most areas. There is a minimum food order of $20. Certain restaurants may require higher delivery minimums based on your location from the restaurant.

Yes, you can order food delivery from more than one restaurant, especially for large catering orders where you need multiple types of food, but we do require that you meet the minimum order and pay the normal delivery charge for each restaurant you order from.

The restaurant delivery time and date requested may not match with the available restaurant delivery hours, or the restaurant may be placed on a temporary vacation which means the restaurant is not currently offering food delivery orders via ROTR. It is also possible that you are requesting a restaurant delivery date and time that cannot be fulfilled. If there is a restaurant and/or food delivery time, that is not being accepted when you are ordering online, please contact a customer service representative at (800) 510-3663.

If this was your first online RESTAURANT DELIVERY order with our service, and you do not receive a phone call or voicemail message from ROTR to confirm your order, it is possible that the order had to be cancelled due to an invalid phone number or suspicious delivery address. If you did not receive a phone call from ROTR on the date of your delivery for your first online order, please contact us immediately.

Yes, Restaurants on the Run has taken your security and privacy very seriously and has taken all necessary precautions to receive and store your data securely. We use Thawte security on all payment/personal information pages that is date stamped to verify security.

100% of your gratuity goes directly to your mobile server. Mobile servers are self-employed and use their own transportation/gas and work hard to make sure that your restaurant food is delivered on-time and accurate. Depending on your area of delivery, a 12% to 15% gratuity or flat $5.00 minimum (whichever is more), is required on all food deliveries. Some areas will also require that the gratuity is calculated on restaurant food total, beverages/catering accessories ordered, restaurant delivery fee and cash adjustment (if necessary). Since the tip is mandatory, the tip is considered to be a taxable item, so please note that the tax will increase based upon the selected tip amount applied to the food delivery order. Breakfast and non-standard food delivery times require an 18% gratuity.

Gratuity for out of Area Restaurant Food Deliveries:  Out of area restaurant food deliveries, are subject to an additional tip charge based upon the distance from the selected restaurant to the desired out-of-area delivery location.

Tax-Exempt Customers:  If your organization has documentation stating that they are tax-exempt, please contact our call center for further details for processing your tax-exempt orders at (800) 510-3663.

All of our business & residential orders include a 5.99% service fee that we stand behind to take care of everything about your delivery from putting together your order, to our operations team monitoring the progress of your order to ensure that it is on-time, accurate every time. If you are not happy with your ROTR experience on any level or don't feel the value of our service, we will "make it right" for you...and that's guaranteed! No gas surcharge.  No cash adjustment.  No other hidden fees. This is it.

Billing & More

All credit card transactions receive a pre-authorization for an additional 10% in the event any additions are made on the order. The pre-authorization will be removed within 2-3 business days and the final charge will be processed for the amount on the invoice or for the amount the customer signed for at the time of delivery. If the pre-authorization amount causes any problems for you, please contact your financial provider for further assistance.

Please call (800) 510-3663 option 2 for customer service, and have your invoice number ready. Keep in mind that a working fax machine is required to complete the payment authorization process for gift orders. ROTR will send an authorization form to be filled out and signed and then faxed to (949) 951-7700. This will prevent the driver from collecting cash or an alternate payment method from the recipient. If this situation is going to be a recurring event, we recommended that you purchase gift certificates for the payment of gift orders.

You can now purchase gift certificates online to send by e-mail, mail or FedEx by CLICKING HERE or you can call toll free (800) 510-3663, x3211 and leave a message. You will receive a call within 24 hours to verify your gift certificate order and schedule a delivery date.
