Catering Menu FAQs

About Phil’s BBQ Catering:  Catering orders are for groups of 10 people or more.  (Individualized meal orders are considered “take out” orders and are placed directly through our restaurants the day of the “take out” order.)  For group catering orders, we pack each food item “family style” in separate, sealed aluminum catering pans, and provide all plates, cutlery, napkins, serving utensils and wet naps at no additional charge.  Our catering pans can be easily arranged on your tables and lend themselves to a buffet line when your guests are ready to enjoy the food!

Q:  How do I place a catering order?  Simply determine how many guests you will be feeding. From the Catering Menu, select the meal or menu items you wish to serve and multiply the number of guests by the meal or menu item selected.  (For example, our most popular item for catering is the “Best of Both” baby back rib and chicken meal with a choice of 2 sides for $15.49.  Multiply the number of guests by $15.49 plus tax (and any applicable fees, delivery charges, or service charges depending on the level of catering service you desire—see below for options) for your total cost.  To place any catering order, or speak to an Event Coordinator, please call the Catering Department  619-814-0050, or you may also email a catering inquiry to, or visit our website at
