Note the auto-grat is split with staff members who work that shift (delivery drivers, phone people, cooks and dishwasher). There is a $5.00 delivery charge which goes directly to the driver for gas and the wear & tear of their vehicle. Our driver will call you to let you know they are about to place your food on the doorstep and will watch from a distance to see you grab it. For pickups, you call when you're outside and we bring out the food to your vehicle! Plaza staff will be wearing masks!
