Delivery Dudes is a service set up to deliver food from restaurants in your area to your home, office or wherever you are. You just choose your location, look at the restaurants in that area and select items from their menus. When delivered, you pay a small fee plus the cost of the food and that’s it.
The Delivery Dudes service is fast, reliable and eager to add locations and restaurants to their list. The Dudes can also perform other errands for you and each stop is an additional fee. We’ll discuss fees in a minute.
About Delivery Dudes
Delivery Dudes started back in 2009 by the company’s founder Jayson Koss. While sitting around with some friends he wished he could have a better selection of food from area restaurants and actually get it delivered to their home. That was the seed that was planted to create the company. It’s been growing ever since. Good idea!
The drivers are trained and given the tools to get your food or errand done right at each driver-operated location. Delivery Dudes aren’t in every city or state yet but the list is growing. The service operates independently of any other delivery service. Partnerships are made with the restaurants on the list to let the restaurants know that they will be sending drivers to pick up the food. The restaurant then provides a menu for the site. Opportunities to work for Delivery Dudes or even to open one of your own are explained on their website. The website has all kinds of information. Here’s some of what’s there:
- Contact information.
- How the company operates.
- The restaurants and their menus.
- Career opportunities.
- How to suggest a restaurant.
- How to sign up your restaurant.
- A feedback form.
- Links to social media.

Delivery Dudes Time of Delivery
The Delivery Dudes estimate that an order from a restaurant should take 45 minutes to get to you. There are occasions when
…bad weather, busy restaurants, dinner-time rush, and street fairs can each play into longer wait times.
When you pick a restaurant, a map comes up showing the delivery range and listing the restaurant’s hours. Delivery Dudes are quite reasonable about those customers who think they might be just out of range so call and ask.
Cost for Delivery
Each stop the service makes will cost $5. If you pay with a credit card it’s $7. So paying with cash gives you a $2 break. If you want to order food that will come from more than one restaurant, each stop will be $5 or $7. As far as tipping goes, that’s up to you. The Dudes work pretty hard though! Keep that in mind and besides, they’re trained to provide excellent service. The idea of saving yourself from traffic, using gas, bad weather and, well, just staying at home while all this is being done for you is pretty attractive.
Suggesting a Restaurant
If Delivery Dudes agrees to pick up food for you from a place not listed, and they will, 20% is added to the cost of the food. Other than that Delivery Dudes never up-charges. They just don’t do that. There’s a place on their site where you can “suggest a restaurant” though. That might solve the problem.
In case a mistake is made or something’s missing from your order, call right away and Delivery Dudes will fix it. While on the subject of the food in your order, Delivery Dudes goes out of their way to make sure hot food stays hot and cold food stays cold when you get it. Normally, utensils aren’t provided by the Delivery Dudes, but some restaurants do. If you need those things just mention it when you order and Delivery Dudes will make sure you get them.
I bet you’ve been in situations that involve being hungry but not wanting to go out or even cook because you’re involved in other things. Now, as long as you are in one of Delivery Dude’s areas, you can get the food delivered! If you’ve used Delivery Dudes or if the idea sounds good, try it, leave some comments and let other people know about them too. That’s one reason for the links at the bottom of their home page.
