Delivery services can be a blessing and they can also be a curse. On one hand, you don't have to get off the couch to get any food you could desire. On the other hand, it could take way longer than expected and your food could show up soggy, cold, and gross.

Nobody wants that. If you're going to stay in and have your food brought to you, you should still receive a quality meal! If you want to avoid your food showing up in a condition that's less than ideal, Chef Lizzy Briskin says there are food you should avoid ordering.

It may be something with the way your order is prepared or the way that it's stored in transit that could cause issues upon arrival.

You want your food to taste the same way it would if you were sitting down at the restaurant, not like it's been in the fridge for a day and a half. Now, companies have been doing a better job ensuring freshness of your order.

They're now stapling the bag shut to ensure your driver doesn't eat any of your fries. They also have improved storage containers for your food. However, problems still happen. The new developments aren't perfect.

Perhaps, if you ordered a little differently you could have your food show up fresh and tasty. The way you expected it.

Chef Lizzy Briskin knows a thing or two about food. I trust a Chef's opinion. She says there are 10 foods you should avoid ordering if you want your meal to show up the way it was made. She doesn't want you eating mushy nachos, and neither do I....and certainly neither do you!

Here are the 10 foods Chef Briskin says you should avoid having delivered, if you can help it. Some of these are obvious, while others may come as a surprise!

I think all of those make sense. I have actually seen firsthand the problem with ordering many of those via delivery.

I think the worst one for me has been ordering a drink along with my meal. Every time the ice is melted and the drink ends up watery and gross. I think I'm done ordering drinks over delivery. I love soda...but I just can't any more.

Did Chef Briskin leave any food items off the list that you won't have delivered? Comment or send me a Tweet.
