Submitting and Picking Up Your Order

  1. 1

    Choose whether to pick the order up now or later. As you review your order, you'll be asked whether you want it now or later. If you click later, you can choose between times from now until Taco Bell closes in 15-minute increments.[8]

    • Orders usually take between 3-5 minutes to get ready.
  2. 2

    Decide whether to pick it up in-store or drive-through. The checkout page will also ask you whether you'd prefer to pick your food up at the drive-through or inside the store. Determine which option is most convenient for you and click on the corresponding option.[9]

    • If you change your mind, you can always pick your food up either way. Choosing as you order the food just helps the Taco Bell staff stay organized.
  3. 3

    Include the first name of the person picking up your order. At the bottom of the checkout page, you'll find the question, "Who's Picking It Up?" In the bar below, type in the first name of whoever will pick up the food.[10]

  4. 4

    Submit your order and pick it up. When you've finished filling out your order, click on "Submit Order" at the bottom of the page. Once you've checked out, you're ready to pick up your order at the time you signed up for.

    • Remember to give the Taco Bell staff your first name when you pick up your order so they know what food to give you.
    • Review your order and the final price before submitting your order. This will help you catch errors before you pay for and pick up your food.

Using Food Delivery Apps

  1. 1

    Choose a food delivery app to buy Taco Bell menu items from home. Although Taco Bell doesn't offer a delivery service, you can use a food delivery app to buy Taco Bell without leaving your home. Try a popular food delivery app to complete your order, like:[11]

    • Grubhub
    • Uber Eats
    • Postmates
    • Door Dash
    • Foodler
  2. 2

    Select Taco Bell from the app's restaurant options and place your order. Most food apps offer a list of available restaurants in your area. Choose Taco Bell from the list of options and place your order either by selecting it on the app's menu or typing it into the app.

    • How you place your order specifically varies depending on the app.
  3. 3

    Pay for your food using the app's checkout system. How you pay for the food varies on the app, but you will generally have to pay for the food before the driver picks it up. After placing your order, make a payment so the food delivery driver can pick it up.

    • You will likely need to pay an extra fee to cover pickup expenses. On average, delivery fees range from $5-10 USD.
  4. 4

    Watch the app to follow your driver's progress. Most apps allow you to watch the driver via GPS as they pick up your food. Keep an eye on the app so you can answer the door when your driver knocks.

    • If you're able, tip your driver as a sign of appreciation. While there is no set range for delivery tips, 15-20% of the bill is normal.
