Handle Uber Eats orders safely

These guidelines help make every order a great one. They also help build trust among delivery people, customers, and your favorite neighborhood restaurants.

Restaurants are expected to meet all relevant licensing requirements and to follow regulations—including food safety regulations—and industry best practices. Restaurants must maintain valid restaurant licenses and/or permits.

Restaurants may outline certain delivery guidelines that promote food safety, adhere to regulatory guidance, or accommodate customer dietary restrictions. For example, restaurant notices to keep halal and non-halal food separate should always be followed.

Restaurants should provide a safe area for order pickups that make delivery people feel welcome.

Only customers who are the legal age to buy alcohol (21 in the US) and are not intoxicated can order or receive alcohol deliveries where available. Delivery people are responsible for following local requirements for alcohol delivery, which often include asking customers to show their ID and refusing delivery if a customer is underage or appears intoxicated.
