As an immune compromised senior citizen, I frequently utilize Door Dash meal delivery. Today, after they confirmed with a Yucaipa restaurant a complete breakfast with all the trimmings, their Dasher delivered a plate containing a piece of chicken fried steak and a slice of bread, nothing else that was supposed to complete the order. I phoned the restaurant, where a rude and disrespectful woman answered the phone, told me I was mistaken, had the wrong restaurant, and there was no ticket for my order in their store.

First of all, the “meal” came with a printed receipt showing the restaurant’s name, address, and 20 dollar fee charge to my credit card. Also, I followed the Dasher delivery on my computer and through phone texts. I explained all of this to her and asked to speak to the manager. She replied, “There is no manager here,” then she hung up on me.

I phoned the corporate office in Spartanburg, South Carolina and discovered the store was franchised and their corporate people would lodge my complaint with the owner. Then I phoned Door Dash and their representative was profusely apologetic and refunded my card immediately.

Yucaipa is growing and there is a banquet of restaurants from which one might choose great service as well as a good meal. The franchise owner should spend some time explaining to employees that they are in a relatively small but growing community and those who live and spend money here, need to be taken care of. I, for one, shall never use that restaurant again.
