Tailgating - surprisingly tantalizing

Orders can be picked up to take to the game or delivered to your home. Enjoy cheering your team on to victory without the hassle of being stuck in the kitchen. If celebrating in your own home, we can even provide staff to serve and clean up the kitchen when you’re done.

Use our sample menu as a guide or order ala carte to create your own menu. Remember, you can always speak with Chef Gretchen directly to custom tailor a menu to your specific needs. She can personally help you design your event from start to finish.
