Choose BBQ Catering for Your Next Event

Choose BBQ for YOUR Next Catering: 3 Simple Steps

Let’s face it. There’s always a good reason to celebrate, and even if there may not be, who doesn’t love a good party? Well, the key to a great party is delicious food, of course. Save the headache of cooking and look to catering instead. Not just any catering, though, but BBQ catering. It’s sure to be a crowd favorite.

Here are 3 simple steps to choosing a BBQ catering company:

1. Search for quality BBQ.

With so many different styles of BBQ and grilling out there, it’s important that you find the right fit. In addition, you’ll need to look for a caterer committed to serving the highest quality product on the market. At STONEFIRE, we constantly scan the market for what’s available to us, and our two-step slow-cooking process for our Mesquite BBQ Tri Tip, Chicken and Baby Back Ribs ensures a slightly smoky, tender and delicious product. Our signature BBQ sauce is sweet and tangy, too!

2. Something for everyone.

Choosing a BBQ catering for your next big event is sure to please most, if not all, of your guests in attendance. But what about those pesky vegetarians and vegans? As a good host/hostess, you’ll want to make sure you choose the caterer with the best side items! From our signature Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Macaroni & Cheese to a selection of 16 unique, market-fresh salad, STONEFIRE Grill caters much more than BBQ.

3. Catering = service.

Since you’ve now decided on a BBQ caterer committed to quality and a variety of options for you and yours, make sure that guest service is their top priority. Saving yourself the trouble of cooking is one thing, but don’t forget about the all of the little details before and after your event. STONEFIRE’S catering services keeps things simple for you every step of the way. You’ll be greeted by a friendly Catering Specialist at 888.649.5783 who will guide you through placing your order and organizing your event; your food and servers will arrive on time with freshly prepared BBQ, sides and salads; and the Team will serve you and your guests with a smile ensuring they leave their area spotless before heading back to the restaurant.

Gluten-free Restaurants throughout Southern California

Gluten-free Restaurants throughout Southern California

Living in Southern California, it has become increasingly common to see gluten-free restaurant menus popping up all over the place. AT STONEFIRE Grill, we have prided ourselves since opening in 2000 on truly providing something for everyone. Yes, even gluten-free diets!

We’re committed to providing the very best for gluten-free diets, and while we cannot necessarily guarantee that YOUR meal will not come into contact with gluten in our kitchen, we are very happy to serve a gluten-free menu within each of our locations with a little something for everyone. To learn more about our gluten-free offerings, be sure to ask a friendly Team Member for a menu on your next visit.

In the meantime, here are three STONEFIRE gluten-free facts that you probably never knew…until NOW!

Our signature BBQ Sauce is gluten-free.

Many years ago, we went back to the drawing board to ensure that our recipe was 100% gluten-free. What does this mean for YOU? As a gluten-free guest at STONEFIRE, you can feel confident enjoying any of our signature mesquite-grilled entrees!

We have nine gluten-free salad dressings.

Like everything at STONEFIRE, our salad dressings are family recipes made from scratch daily. From Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette to Lemon Tahini, these dressings are unique to who we are and what we stand for – deliciousness. For a full list of our gluten-free salad dressings, simply click here.

Modifying STONEFIRE is encouraged!

Especially for our gluten-free guests, but for any diet in particular, all of us at STONEFIRE encourage modifications to suit your taste buds. We do it all the time ourselves! It may be as simple as removing the tortilla strips from our BBQ Chopped or as complicated as a “no this, sub that and extra fill in the blank”. Whatever it is, we want YOU to order it, and we’ll be happy to serve. It’s just a small part of what makes our menu so diverse and interesting here!

Still interested in learning more about how to eat gluten-free in one of our Southern California restaurants? Feel free to check out the entire STONEFIRE menu here, or for a full selection of our current gluten-free offering, click right here.

We look forward to serving you soon!

Testing, testing 1, 2…

At STONEFIRE, we do our best to provide friendly and efficient service every step of the way. Ordering takeout at any of our restaurants in Southern California is no different. Recently, though, we knew that it was time to develop a system for those guests not necessarily having the time or simply not wanting to call to place their orders. We’ll still be there to provide the friendliness and efficiency you have come to expect from us, but now, ordering YOUR next STONEFIRE meal for takeout is just a few clicks away.

Each of our eight restaurant locations will debut our brand new online ordering platform by the end of October 2015. Right now, we have two locations testing live, and we’re excited to share this with you! If you find yourself in the Pasadena (Hastings Ranch) or West Hills (Woodland Hills/San Fernando Valley) areas, please give it a try! We’ve optimized it for your smart phones, too, so ordering could not be simpler.

To begin placing YOUR takeout order in Pasadena, click here; and for West Hills, click here. We look forward to serving you and yours very soon. For location information for either of these two information, please visit our STONEFIRE Locations page, or click here.

Please let us know how we’re doing and how you’re finding our new online ordering system. Your feedback is important!
