Hola Tonya

Yes, pedir could mean "to order" (e.g food and drinks in a bar) or to "ask/ask for" something. We have different examples in the lesson covering both meanings, for example:

"Siempre pido una cerveza fria."

I always order a cold beer.

"Ellos piden 500 euros por el alquiler."

They are asking for 500 euros for the rent.

Un saludo
