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.

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.

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?

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.
