Elite F'ing Meals is a delivery company that operates out of our commercial kitchen location. Our small business has been open since 2013 and is rapidly growing and evolving. We are proud to announce that we will open our first retail storefront at M-K-T Heights in 2020.
Currently, most of our orders are for home delivery, but we do allow for pick up at our commercial kitchen on Airline Drive.
We wish to provide our customers with the best possible experience from start to finish. The following FAQ's and guidelines were created to better serve you, our customers!
How It Works
Our menu is posted every Wednesday at 2pm CST for pre-order. Our first delivery day of the week is Sunday, which is our most popular delivery date to receive your meals to begin the week!
Simply place your order on our website and select your items for delivery or pick up. It's that easy! We deliver the meals fresh in a thermal tote with ice packs in case you are not home. Choose Sunday, Monday or Wednesday delivery. Please see location and hours for pick up & delivery below.

Delivery Policies & Best Practices
- Please leave gate code or special entry directions in order notes, when placing your order (example, gate code, leave at back door, etc). If your home is not accessible for delivery, our driver will call or text you for further instructions. Due to the high volume of our delivery routes, drivers are not permitted to wait for more than 5 minutes.
- Our drivers have been instructed to ring your doorbell or knock at time of delivery, so that your food remains optimally fresh, and so they can hand deliver your order and return with our delivery totes and ice packs.
- If you are not home when your meals are delivered, leave your bags and ice packs on your porch for our drivers to pick up.
- Delivery orders are packed in insulated thermal totes with reusable ice packs free of charge. In order for this program to remain cost effective, we ask that you please return our totes and ice bags, so we can reuse them.
- If you are not home at the time of delivery, please leave your bags and ice packs on your porch for our drivers to pick up.
- The delivery tote should be picked up as soon as possible and refrigerated for optimal freshness. The delivery totes typically stay cold for up to 4 hours.
Order Changes & Cancellations
- We will do our best to accommodate changes to your delivery date or address prior to leaving our kitchen for delivery. Please call, text or e-mail us with updated delivery instructions prior to 12pm the day of delivery. We are unable to cancel or change an existing order that is already on route for delivery.
- Deliveries in route will incur an additional delivery fee of $13, plus a 30% restocking fee for the total order, due to the highly perishable nature of our product.
