MORE THAN COOK A GREAT MEAL

We Bring People Together.

My best early memories are leaving the bustle of New York City for holiday pig roasts on the lakes of New England. This is where our passion for cookout catering was born.  As a child, my mom moved us to Florida. As an adult my career took us to Southern California. Now, I have a family of my own – and this has brought us BACK HOME to my wife’s prior stomping ground in Austin & home state of Texas.

 

I have been delighted to discover every region of our country has its own favorite style of cookout, each with two things in common – great food and the ability to bring people together in a very special way.

 

Reel & Ranch cookout catering brings more than just a great meal. We bring people together, creating one-of-kind culinary experiences designed to maximize the quality of your guests’ experience. Knowledgeable, passionate and ready to answer questions, we come ready to cook, to teach, to laugh, and to help ensure your guests make great memories.

 

Our philosophy is to use high-quality ingredients that come from people and places we know and trust. We serve you the food we serve to our own families, choosing local, seasonal and sustainable options whenever they are available. Our promise is to constantly balance serving the highest quality and best tasting food with our responsibility for sustainable sourcing and providing a reasonable to-client price. This is what makes us different, and, in our opinion, it is why we are Austin’s best cookout catering.

High-Qualitymeans Great Flavor

Real food just tastes better. What do we mean 'real' food? Have you ever heard someone say 'you are what you eat'...

True Cost &Sustainable Sourcing

Where our food comes from and how it gets from there to here is more important than it has ever been before...

Providing the Bestto-Client Pricing

Everything is a balance and price is certainly a large part of the equation. Every event is unique and every budget is different...

THIS IS OUR PASSION

This is what we do.

We are not your typical event caterers and this is not your typical cookout catering. We are professional cooks who love to create cookouts and enjoy sharing our passion for great food with people just like you. It shows in our presentation, in our team’s demeanor and in the quality of our food.

 

Our goal is to provide the best possible cookout catering experience. This is why don’t cut corners and why we use reliable vendors that we know and trust. Taking the time needed and putting in the extra effort to do things right, is a commitment you can see and taste. Your guests will appreciate the quality of our food and their gourmet cookout catering experience.

FREE-RANGE ORGANIC

Whole Pig Roasts

We have been roasting whole hogs and suckling pigs since Memorial Day 2004. With a wide variety of sizes and range of cooking options available we can 100% find a setup that will work perfectly for your event’s style and venue parameters. We are Austin's pig roast specialists. If you are in Central Texas and want a whole roasted pig done right, you've found your guys (and gals)!

FRESH SEASONAL

Fish Fries

Fish Fries are big on flavor and really bring the fun. We fry fresh catfish, cod and tons of other great seafood. Stressing seasonality and sustainability our selection of fresh fish changes regularly. It is always delicious and is sure to please every crowd.

REAL PIT STYLE

Smoked BBQ

The best barbecue is part art and part science and everyone has a strong opinion on the right way to get things done. Memphis, St Louis, North Carolina, Georgia and Texas all have a unique style and each produces a very different finished product. All of them are delicious! No matter what type of meat or what style of cooking you prefer we have one of the best BBQ pits around.

LOCAL & SEASONAL

Shellfish Boils

Low-country Boils, New England Clam Bakes, Maryland Crab Feasts. When it comes to boiling or steaming shellfish it doesn't matter what style or flavor you choose - you are sure to get a great meal and a lot of smiles. Our local shellfish selection is bountiful but varies based on seasonality & availability so there is always something different and always something delicious.

ALL-AMERICAN STYLE

Grillin' & Chillin'

Backyard barbecues are a cornerstone of the American experience. Grilled steaks, burgers, sausages & dogs, chicken, shish kabobs, skewers and more. If you can grill it, we can dig it. Let's fire up the grill. Our cookout catering menus can ALL be customized to be perfect for you and your guests.

SOLID START

Hors d'Oeuvres

We offer a wide variety of Solid Start options designed to be added on to any Reel & Ranch gourmet cookout. They serve any sized group and can even work as standalone options for cocktail parties and smaller events. Mix and match your favorites or just ask and we can help you come up with a great plan for a perfect meal!

SWEET TREAT

Desserts

Sweet tooth? Us too! Our dessert menu has something that will please every guest. We make a bunch of great sweet treats that are the perfect add-on for any cookout. We also source a few local favorites from the area's best bakers & dessertiers. Sometimes the masters know best and if you can't beat 'em - support 'em!

CHEF DRIVEN

Wine Dinners

The art of pairing great wine with great food is something that has drawn excitement with diners and wine enthusiasts for generations. Something about the right complementary pairing seems to bring out the best in both the food. We love a good cookout but when the cards are down and our team wants to really impress, we go wine dinner every time!

WHAT MAKE US THE BEST?

This is How We Roll!

When we cook for your friends and family, you all become a part of our extended cookout family. More than a great meal, this is a culinary experience and we are here to feed your people.

 

We prepare special first tastes while the food is being prepared and sweet dessert bites to say, ‘Thank you,’ once the meal is through! Your choice & our pleasure!
