All Barnyard menu items are available for catering. Our menu and prices can be found under the "Party Packs" tab at the top.
Our co-owner, JJ Nelson, loves to take catering jobs on the side! At 31 years old, he's been featured multiple times on WKRG, CNN, AL.com, and CBS' "Cooking with John." At Auburn, he catered private fundraisers for the legendary Coach Pat Dye. Today he primarily caters private events for the Archbishop of Mobile.
With more than 11 years of experience, JJ has catered dozens of large parties, weddings, celebrations, funerals, prayer breakfasts, business luncheons, holiday feasts, and Mardi Gras balls.
JJ specializes in Soul Food, wood-smoked BBQ, roast beef, fried seafoods, Southern brunch, chicken wings, charcuterie boards, fruit trays (with chocolate covered strawberries), and other finger foods/party platters.
Both Barnyard Catering and JJ's Catering jobs of $200 or more are available for delivery given plenty of advanced notice. There will be a flat-rate $50 delivery fee plus a variable mileage cost for deliveries outside of Saraland.
Free buffet set-up and disposable serving utensils are included with delivery.
In order to keep your food warm, we do recommend that you either purchase reusable chafing dishes and fuel canisters OR rent our commercial-grade equipment.
Be sure to let us know if you'd like us to provide gallons of tea, lemonade, or water. Ice will come included, and we can provide lemons and sweeteners for tea (by request).
We also offer disposable paperware or plasticware (napkins, cutlery, plates, and cups) for a small fee.
If you'd like to hire an on-site service team, we can stick around to replenish your buffet and keep everything running smoothly. We'll clean up behind ourselves and even pack up any leftovers for you to take home.
Some larger jobs may require us to cook on-site and employee a kitchen staff as well on the day of your event.
Please try to find out what types of equipment the event venue provides before you call us for a quote.
