¿Le podría encargar un........?

¿Le podría encargar un taco de carnitas?

I heard “¿Le podría encargar un taco de carnitas?” used when ordering food at a food stand/food truck, and I am wondering if this can only be said when it’s obvious that the employee is the one who is going to prepare the food?

Does it more closely translate to “Will you please make me a..........?”

Would “¿Le podría encargar........?” ever be used when ordering food from the menu at a sit-down restaurant where it’s obvious the waiter is not going to be the one preparing the food?

Where else would I hear “¿Le podría encargar........?”

I heard that said in a predominantly Mexican/Central American neighborhood.
