Show Menu Item Image

Order Ahead / Endpoints

Show a Menu Item Image

This endpoint redirects the client, using an HTTP 302 response and Location header, to a menu item image of the requested dimensions, if one exists.

Please note that menu item images only exist in a very small subset of menus. All merchants, and associated locations, will have an image, but very few menus have images for each item. A base URL for the request is included in the “Show Menu” endpoint’s response as item[image_url]. The client should add appropriate query parameters.

The following dimensions (width x height) are available at 1x, 1.5x, 2x, and 3x:

  • 420 x 300
  • 320 x 180
  • 133 x 92

Note that an Accept header with the value image/jpg is required for the request.
