Catering and Chef
Thank you so very much for considering Crown King Catering for your important event. Please know that what you will see below are simply examples and all menus are tailored to your needs, style and budget. Our unique bulk pricing allows us to make your dreams come true without sacrificing quality and flavor.
All menus are “all inclusive,” meaning that each price category includes 2-3 theme matched appetizers for your cocktail hour, a full meal with main course, salad, side, hot vegetable, bread, non-alcoholic drinks and our “basic” set-up of plates, napkins, cups, flatware and such are all included in your package. Upgrades, of course, are always available. We will customize your menu as you see fit.
We gladly offer table service for your wedding party and, if practical, a “served” buffet, with staff service of the main course.
Of course, we are happy to cut & serve your cake. As a special service, we will bring your cake up the mountain (assuming we can work with your baker’s location, or you may use ours). If you decide on an alternative to a traditional cake, we can work with you to get the best possible quality and price for whatever that choice may be.
Tier 1 Menus are our most popular menus for all occasions. These menus include options such as a Mexican buffet of enchilada casserole, a taco bar or smothered burritos, hot or cold black beans & corn with peppers, cilantro/lime rice, southwest slaw or salad with chips and salsa on the tables. If Italian is your favorite, we offer penne pasta with homemade tomato basil sauce Sweet Italian Sausage Lasagna or Veggie Lasagna, garlic butter herbed roasted veggies, an Olive Garden style salad and herbed Focaccia bread sticks or rolls on the tables. There is also a traditional meatloaf meal with mashed potatoes and gravy, homemade Sloppy Joes with peach bourbon baked beans, a grilled burger and hot dog bar or a chili and salad bar. The choices in this category are many; these are but a few ideas. Prices for this tier range from $22 to $25 per person for 50 guests.* For an additional charge, a “real meat” dish can be added to any of the themed meals… perhaps, carne asada for the Mexican or Chicken Marsala for the Italian or punch up your burger bar with beer brats and 1/3 pound Angus sirloin patties?
Tier 2 Menus are also very popular, especially for weddings. Brides find these menus more upscale without the upscale price. These menus include what we call “the real meat” entrees’ that include roasted pork loin or grilled chicken with several choices of glazes, sauces and marinades. Also in this category is roasted beef or turkey breast sliced on the buffet, perhaps with herbed rice pilaf or Loaded mashed potatoes and green beans almandine. This category also includes homemade slow cooked BBQ pulled pork. Pulled pork done properly is more expensive due to the cost of the right cut of meat and the hand shredding. The BBQ sauce is homemade (grown and canned here in Crown King) and it comes with many choices for sides. Prices for this tier range from $28-$30 per person for 50 guests.
Tier 3 Menus are our top of the line menus and include anything from Prime Rib with homemade creamy mustard/horseradish sauce, salmon, grilled T-bone steaks, crab cakes and variety of seafood and shrimp dishes. A wide variety of seafood appetizers goes without saying. The only limit is your imagination. Prices for this tier range from $34.00-$38.00 per person for 50 *Under 50 guests may incur an additional charge due to the inability for us to buy items at the best bulk prices. Extra Fees for additional Guests beyond 50.
