Illinois Restaurant Serves Up Outrageous $1,300 Pizza
Hey, it's 2021, a lot of us hit up Grubhub for the convenient food we love. Sometimes, that deliciousness comes at a price.
In 2019, 18 of the 20 most expensive restaurants in Illinois were in Chicago, which is no surprise.
At the bottom of the list was Les Nomades at $80 a person, on average. At the top of the list was Alinea at a whopping $355 per person. That price actually fluctuates. The caveat is it's a 4-to-5-hour dining experience that involves an 18-course meal.
Truth be told, you'll likely never find me inside either of those restaurants or any on the list, that's too boujee for me.
I'm sure the case behind this Northern Illinois' $1,300 pizza but it must be a mistake. It has to be.
Someone shared a screenshot of a Grubhub order for a restaurant in Belvidere, Illinois called Firebox, on Facebook.
The prices for most of their pizzas are fair, except for one, a $1,300 Margherita pizza.
What?! Does that Margherita pizza have flakes of gold on it? Is it some uber-rare crust? How can this be?
Ok, clearly there is some sort of error here, but imagine if you had ordered that pizza without closely looking at the price.
It's been a long time since I've ordered through Grubhub so my question is what would have happened if someone order that pizza? Would they be charged that price? Can you imagine?
Now You See It, Now You Don't
I grabbed the Grubhub app and searched for Firebox and scrolled through the pizzas and it appears to have been fixed. Their Margherita pizza is actually only $11 and not $1,300.
Let this be a lesson to always double-check your online order.
