Fiesta, Fiesta!

Cinco de Mayo is coming in hot, and we’re already busting out the margarita glasses and all the avocados. In honor of this beloved Mexican holiday, we’re sharing five menu-must haves for your Cinco De Mayo bash. 

cinco de mayo theme catering options

 

  1. Do It Yourself Taco Bar

What’s Cinco De Mayo without tacos? We love the South of the Border Menu, which includes a Chicken & Beef Taco Bar. Your guests will have a blast making their own creation with all the fixings: guacamole, shredded cheddar, lettuce, tomato chunks, olives, sour cream, salsa, and jalapenos to add some spice! 

  1. Salsa con Queso Mac N’ Cheese

Think outside the box, and wow your guests with an unexpected dish: Mac n’ Cheese! Our Salsa Con Queso Mac adds a zesty spin to this childhood favorite, with a to-die-for white cheese sauce. Take it to the next level by adding taco beef to your mac order! 

  1. Chips & Guac

Keep it simple with a Mexican classic: chips and guac! Our Mexican Platter is a party must-have, complete with nacho chips, salsa, sour cream, black bean dip, jalapenos and of course guacamole

  1. Irresistible Queso Dips 

Everyone loves a good ol’ fashioned dip to snack on throughout the day. Our cheesy Salsa Con Queso or Beefy Salsa Con Queso dips are especially fitting for your Cinco De Mayo fiesta! 

  1. Tex-Mex Vegetable Salad 

All your favorite Mexican flavors into one big healthy salad! This colorful and refreshing combo – featuring corn, beans, and peppers – is a great complement to your fiery meals and apps. 

 

BONUS:

If you don’t feel like crafting your own menu from scratch, our  South of the Border Menu is the perfect option for you! Along with the DIY Taco Bar (as mentioned above), this fan-favorite menu also includes:

 

  • Veggie or Meat Chili
  • Mexicali Vegetable Medley
  • Spanish Rice
  • Freshly Baked Corn Bread 
  • Watermelon
  • Lemonade

    Stellar Food and Service

    Here's what Dan R. of Simsbury, CT had to say on Yelp about his clambake. 

    delicious clambake catering great service

    "B&M catered our Friday night clambake at the Narragansett Beach North Clubhouse. 

    They were absolutely stellar in every way! 
    Food, service, everything was excellent.

    Our clambake menu included a belly-busting all-star line-up of Lobster, BBQ Chicken, New England Clam Chowder, Steamed Clams & Mussels, Drawn Butter, Baked beans, Corn on the Cob, Red Bliss potatoes & Onions, Brown bread & butter, apple crisp, lemonade & coffee. We also added on a full open bar option that ran 4 hours and included a bartender and insurance. 

    The food was amazing!! 
    The clam chowder had a lot of flavor and wasn't overloaded with potatoes, and yes, there were clams in the chowder. The steamed mussels and clams were also great- super fresh and super delicious. I passed on the beans and the potatoes, but let me tell you that the corn I had was great - a super large portion that was expertly cooked and tasted sweet and excellent.

    The lobster was so good- perfectly cooked and without any of the tough stringiness, you get from a lobster that's been boiling in the pot a teensy bit too long.
     One of the B & M guys pre-cracked the tail and claws to make your dining experience easier.

    Now I didn't expect to rave about the BBQ chicken at a clambake, but let me tell you the chicken was outstanding. So moist and tender with a really good barbecue sauce on top.

    And we finished off our feast with a scoop of apple crisp and a squirt of whipped cream.

    Thank you, Brian and Mickey Doherty (The B & M in B&M).  
    You did a bang up job for us."
