Here are the most popular Uber Eats special requests in each state during quarantine

"Extra Yum Yum sauce, please."

Anna Ben Yehuda

Back in April, Uber Eats revealed the most popular takeout orders in 35 U.S. states. Today, the delivery company delves deeper into its data, highlighting each state's customization preferences when ordering.

The company shared its findings with Travel + Leisure. Among the most noticeable trends: tacos and limes are the most popular food combination that people tend to order, followed by French fries and salt. Also: as more folks ask for "extra sauce," "no onion" and "no cucumber" as compared to pre-quarantine times, less users than usual demand "dressing on the side" and "no bacon." 

But what particularly stands out from the company's report is that people in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Vermont and Washington are, generally speaking, the most polite customers across the country—writing "thank you" and "please" most frequently when ordering.
