    Hello. I’m getting married in August of this year in Sonora . I will be having about 150 guest and I’m looking to have a buffet style dinner. Would you travel to Sonora and if so can you please email me all the info on? Thanks

    • 2-7-2014

      Jessica~Thank you for considering us for your upcoming wedding. I’m very sorry we do not go to Sonora, but we do have what we call a “get-it-and-go” which means you pick up the cooked product and the labor is your responsibility. But the good part is that you save money. The get-it-and-go price is $2.00 off our regular price. If you are interested I can email our catering prices. Thank you

    • 3-18-2014

      Yes we will go to the Farmington area. June is pretty much open except for the 21st but we may be able to work something out if it is that weekend. And last question, yes you can add in extra sides. Please call me at 209-847-5991 to discuss you wedding date and options.


  12. 3-30-2014

    We are having a luncheon after my sons wedding on June 7th. (probably 1:00 or 2:00 will know more later from the bride). We were wanting the beef and pork ribs with the chicken along with baked beans, corn on the cob, garden salad and an the assortment of dinner rolls. You will need to deliver this to a local church in Modesto. That information will also be coming from the bride. I would like to know what that would cost and then as an extra I would like to know what adding cobbler would add to the price. (I also love peach cobbler hint hint), There will be about 40 people attending. I am located near Dallas, Tx. so I am sure that there will be lots that we will have to message back and forth about but the bride and her family are in Modesto, that should help.
    Thank You

    I am having a party of approximately 50 guests. How much would it cost to serve prime rib? I would like meat only pricing, please.

    • 2-17-2017

      Hi Arentina,

      We sent your price quote via email.

  21. 2-21-2017

    Do you have someone who would come to our house and cook a lunch (beef, chicken & salmon) on our grill for 10 people? Or do you only cater at your place or people pick up the food and bring it home?

    • 2-22-2017

      Thank you for considering the House of Beef for your home party. It probably would be to expensive to have someone come to cook for only 10 people. We do cook on site for large parties which does cost much more. Most customers with small parties are interested in the “Get it & Go”. Which is us cooking here and you picking it up hot to serve yourself. Depending on the date we could deliver if you are local or even offer labor to deliver, set up and take back so you can enjoy your party. I hope that answers your question but if you need more information you could call 209-847-5991 or email me back.
