a difficult task, or assignment
Getting people to accept a compromise in a polarized forum like that before the vacation is a tall order.
an assignment or task which is difficult or seems impossible to accomplish.

1. A seemingly impossible task.
2. Any of various customer-specified coffee or coffee-related drinks whose names are usually as long or longer than this definition.
1. Three final projects in five days? That's one hell of a tall order.
2. "Oh, I'd like a Triple-score Double Half-Diamond Sparkling Choco-caramel Machiatto-Mocha Mixed Shot with Extra Twice-whipped Cream!" What a faggot, trying to sound all high and mighty with his gay-ass drink.
