Parking at ORD: The cheapest place to park is in the O'hare lot G. It's $10/day. Be aware that you need to take a bus to the tram (in lot E) which takes you to the terminals. This can take 20-25 minutes

Plain Uber. Many don't care, as long as you tell them before, and the food is packed well. EJs pizza is on Ubereats, but obviously not Fleish.

Can you think of any other meat options to deliver to ORD?
Uber eats shows error when putting in ORD..
We have only a 1.5 hour stopover

See the first part of my answer. You can order from any place and call a standard Uber to pick it up.

Right, Uber and Lyft seem to be, consistently, at least $50 for pool/line.
