I talk about the gig economy a lot on This Online World.
This is for good reason. After all, I think gig apps like Uber Eats are an awesome and flexible way to make extra money on the side. So if you want to boost your income, it’s a great app to deliver for.
But sometimes, the gig economy can be frustrating or downright hilarious.
So today, I’m covering some of the funniest and most accurate Uber Eats memes for your enjoyment.
Let’s get to it!

The Best Uber Eats Memes
In this post, I’m covering some Uber Eats driver memes as well as memes for customers.
And at the end, I’m also covering if you can potentially make more money with Uber Eats by sending memes to customers and adding in some humor.
Let’s dive into the memes!
1. Lost Uber Eats Driver Meme
It doesn’t matter if you’re an Uber Eats driver or customer; I’m sure you know the feeling of being absolutely lost on a delivery.
If only Uber Eats customers could use a bat signal like this guy! Talk about being a helpful customer.
2. Uber Eats Is Expensive Meme
It doesn’t matter if you’re ordering Uber Eats or from another delivery company; food delivery sure can be expensive!
That’s why this Uber Eats meme really hits close to home.
But hey, at least in this second meme the customer remembered to tip $3! Gotta find the silver lining somewhere, right? 😛
Also I’m not sure about the last time I saw a $0.99 delivery fee…those were the good old days!
3. The Walking Delivery Meme
One of the great parts about making money with Uber Eats is that it lets you deliver via bike, car, or scooter. In contrast, other driving apps like Instacart require driving with a car since you need to transport groceries.
But in this Uber Eats meme, one courier is taking it to the extreme and delivering on foot!
I don’t even think this is allowed in 99% of zones unless you deliver right downtown, but hey, good thing this courier walks fast!
I just like how the customer decided to double check!
4. The Sarcastic Uber Eats Driver
If you’ve ever delivered for gigs like Uber Eats or DoorDash, I’m sure you’ve felt the urge to be a bit sarcastic with your customer.
And can you really blame the driver in this scenario…It seems like a pretty obvious answer once you think things through!
I just hope they didn’t lose their tip or get a bad rating for this joke.
5. The Waiting For Delivery Meme
Another classic Uber Eats meme category is the anticipation that build while waiting for your food to actually arrive.
Maybe it’s 2AM chicken nuggets from McDonald’s, or maybe it’s your dinner.
Whatever the case, I’m sure we’ve all been here before as we track our Uber Eats driver on the app with hungry anticipation.
6. The Caught Red Handed Meme
When you deliver for Uber Eats or DoorDash, you have to take a photo of the food being dropped off at the customer’s door. This is to prove that you’ve delivered the food so customers can’t claim a refund and that the food never arrived.
But in this Uber Eats meme, it looks like the driver was pretty speedy and caught the customer retreating back into their home.
This feels like a creature crawling out of its cave to snap up some food. But hey, I bet we’ve all been there on the customer side of things.
7. The Boss Delivery Guy Meme
When you deliver for Uber Eats, you’re working as an independent contractor. This means you pay for your own gas, vehicle repairs, and any expenses.
But wouldn’t it be nice if long-time drivers got something for all their hard work besides cash and tips?
Well, this Uber Eats driver meme thinks a golden skin delivery box would do the trick!
I gotta admit, this gives me major boss level in a video game type vibes. It would be cool if you got some prize for 1,000 and 10,000 delivery milestones though, that’s for sure
Pro Tip: Use the GetUpside app to save up to $0.25 per gallon so you’re not overspending on gas!
8. The DoorDash vs Uber Eats Driver Meme
As the two most popular food delivery apps, it’s no wonder people often compare DoorDash to Uber Eats.
But in this meme, the creator seems to think that DoorDash drivers hustle way more than your average Uber Eats driver!
I don’t know about running red lights, but definitely respect the customer service and commitment to delivering on time from this Dasher!

9. The Stealing Food Meme
Another classic Uber Eats meme, or any delivery gig for that matter, is that drivers always steal food.
This is obviously a violation of your delivery contractor terms, so don’t ever steal food unless you want to get deactivated!
But you got to admit, even though taking food is wrong, this meme is pretty hilarious and spot on.
10. The Waiting At Restaurant Meme
One of the worst experiences as an Uber Eats driver is getting stuck at a restaurant waiting for food to get prepared.
This slows down your deliveries per hour and earnings. And it can feel agonizingly slow to just sit there and wait…almost like you’re this skeleton!
For the drivers out there, remember: your Uber Eats acceptance rate doesn’t really matter, so don’t be afraid to decline orders from restaurants that are always slow.
And one pro tip for Uber Eats drivers is to cancel orders if you realize the restaurant is going to take forever to prepare the food.
You can’t do this too often since you get deactivated if you cancel a lot of orders. But don’t be afraid to abandon an active order if it’s a lost cause.
Pro Tip: Try driving at the best Uber Eats times so it’s always busy and you can get as many orders as possible!
Should You Send Uber Eats Memes To Customers?
In my post on the best DoorDash memes, I talk about the idea of sending memes to customers to try and get more tips. The idea is to use humor to make the customer chuckle, increasing the odds they want to tip you.
You can technically send your Uber Eats customer a IMGUR link to a meme that relates to delivering, but from what I’ve seen on Reddit, this seems to be way less common than with DoorDash.
I honestly wouldn’t try this tactic but would instead be very friendly. Sending updates about the order or if you’re stuck waiting isn’t a bad idea on the customer service front either.
Ultimately, anything you can do to provide better customer service is a good thing since it potentially means more tips on average.
I hope our list of Uber Eats memes got a chuckle and even gave you a few tips for how you can make more money with this side hustle!
I honestly love the gig economy for several reasons. For consumers, it adds convenience into daily life for a certain price. And for hustlers, it provides so many effective ways to make quick money.
But as mentioned, sometimes getting a good chuckle from the downsides of the gig economy is worth it too.
Anyways, thanks for reading, and best of luck if you’re also out there delivering!
