Dave's Italian Kitchen Delivery FAQ

PLEASE, PLEASE--if you order for delivery, please be at home or answer the door when the driver gets there. Please be ready to receive your order as soon as you call. I beg you.

Do you deliver? If so, how much is the delivery charge?
Yes. Currently, $3.75. Subject to change.

Who is Zoomer?
They're our new delivery service.

Should I tip if there's a delivery charge? If so, how much?
You ask the great question. It's entirely up to you but please realize that the delivery people use their own cars and must pay for gas and upkeep. They work in bad weather, struggle to find places to park and are frequently under extraordinary pressure to perform. Furthermore, thanks to the recent downtown Evanston development, they have to deal with rush hour during the dinner hours. Your kindness and generosity with delivery people is always appreciated.

Is there a minimum order?
Yes - $15 before we add tax and delivery charge. That would make the minimum total a little over $19.

What is your delivery boundary?
Primarily Evanston but we're expanding on that slightly.

How long do deliveries take?
We generally quote less than an hour though sometimes we give longer times. Our average time is between 30 and 45 minutes but we cannot guarantee that.

Why can't you be faster?
As much as possible, we cook your food to order. We have a fairly large dining room and must also cook for that. If your delivery seems to be taking a long time, it's almost always because the dining room is packed and we are maxed out with cooking. Also, extreme cold, snow, rain, ice and tornados cause longer delivery times. Armageddon may also impact delivery times.

Can you deliver alcoholic beverages if I'm over 21?
You could be over 90 and we couldn't. We do not have that kind of license.

Can I order a delivery for a specific time?
Yes but we need to allow a 15 minute window on each side. In other words, if you ask for a 7 o'clock delivery, we would arrive between 6:45 and 7:15.

What are your delivery hours?
From 4 to about 9:30 Sunday through Thursday, till 10 on Friday & Saturday.

What was it like delivering pizzas in the 70's?
Did you see the movie Dazed and Confused?
