Picnic BBQ and Backyard Catering Perks

Is there anything better than relaxing outside in the sun? How about relaxing outside in the sun while burgers and hot dogs sizzle on a grill? After all, who doesn’t love the smell of barbecue on a hot summer day? Backyard catering is the perfect way to help you celebrate. Our picnic catering experience offers you all the food you love with none of the work.

At Zachary’s BBQ, we have the best to offer in picnic catering. We’ve been doing backyard catering for decades and know all the ins and outs to make it a great party. So the next time you want to host a summer event, consider picnic food catering near me from Zachary’s BBQ.

What is picnic catering?

If you’ve been doing all the cooking for your backyard parties, then you are missing out. Everyone else is splashing in the pool, playing tug-of-war, or running relay races. You’re running in and out of the kitchen trying to get food on the table and keep the grill tended too. Some people enjoy all the prep work that comes with a terrific backyard BBQ. But many wish that they have been part of the other fun activities vs. just being in the kitchen behind all the food.

Trained caterers for BBQ picnic catering

That’s right. At Zachary’s BBQ, our staff is trained in backyard catering. Picnic planning can suck the energy out of even the best of us. But when you bring in outside professionals such as our team, we’ll help you turn your dream event into a reality. Making you the hero!

Resources for the best catering for company picnics

It’s easy to underestimate how much work planning an event can be. Whether you are planning a get-together for family and friends or need help catering for company and office picnics, we can do the job. Not only that, but we have the catering tools to keep hot food hot and cold food cold. No more worries about food getting too warm or too cold before serving. Our staff knows the ins and outs regarding safe food handling and preparation. So, stop worrying and leave it to us.

Best Value

Buying hot dogs, chips, and everything at your local wholesale club can add up. How do you know exactly how much you buy of one thing? It’s almost inevitable that you’ll have too much of one item and not enough of others. You don’t want any guests to be disappointed or to buy too much, causing you to overspend.

Because this is all we do, and we do it well, we can help you estimate what you’ll need. And even better, we’ll bring it all to the table. That allows you to appreciate every dollar spent on the best BBQ picnic catering in Collegeville.

What Our Clients Say

Elizabeth thank you again for the quick response . The event went well and the food was remarkable. I told Abe we should get some of your business cards because everyone wanted to know where you were. Again thank you and if not before we will see you on Labor Day!!!

Lynn W. , Elkins Park, PA

Thank you so much ! Everything was fabulous and more then enough food ! We actually had left overs and brought to the office for the group to enjoy!

J. H Conshohocken, Office Holiday Party

Yes! Our block party was a hit and the food was as well! If there are any takeaways for us next year it’s to order more Mac n Cheese… that was annihilated in minutes ha!

Thank you for great service and food.

R.D , Lafayette Hill Block Party

Hi Elizabeth,

The food was fantastic. So many people raved and asked for information on where to find you ( which I gladly supplied:). I even had leftovers on Sunday and they were delicious next day as well.

The food stayed warm and moist for the party which was great.

Also very easy to place order with you and everything about deliver and set up was perfect.

Thanks so much. I’m sure we’ll see you again!

M.S., Radnor Graduation

Hi Elizabeth,

Everything was great for the party. Everyone enjoyed the food and it was very easy to warm up. Have a great day!

C.F., Collegeville Birthday

Yes and although I was notified that my delivery would be arriving 15 minutes late, it was worth the wait.

We enjoyed everything and I will be ordering again.

Thank you for such scrumptious food.

K. Boyd, Kitchen-to-Kitchen Meal Order

I should have let you know before this but yes, everything was great with our Kitchen to Kitchen recent order.

Not only was the food wonderful, your delivery service was also great.

I have given your information to several of my friends.

Will be ordering again soon!

Thank you again and stay well.

R. Holt, Kitchen-to-Kitchen Meal Order

Hi Elizabeth,
Everything turned out great – thanks for asking! My sister was a huge help heating everything up so I would not get sauce on my white dress. LOL Everyone raved about the food, of course, and there are not too many leftovers. Brisket went first. I loved the mozzarella capri!

Thanks for all your help and coordination to make hosting so easy!

Wish I had photos of the food or people eating, but we were having too much fun.

K.S., Ambler, Engagement Party

Hi Elizabeth!

Thanks for checking in – everything was great!

The mac and cheese was a huge hit and got all eaten up. If we do this next year, we’ll definitely order a bit more (probably 2 more trays).

I’ve put it in my notes. As always, thank you for being so easy to work with….we love Zachary’s BBQ!

The synergistic effect is what makes Zachary's- a combination of family recipes and pride from the Chef/Owner Keith, the fresh and some quite unique ingredients, the love and joy of preparing & serving food instilled in the staff by Keith make for a delicious down south meal well north of the Mason/Dixon line. Go get your fingers dirty, they got plenty of paper towels.

Zachary's BBQ + Elizabeth were both incredible for our event. Great communication all throughout the process and the delivery & setup were timely and organized, we're so happy we went with Zachary's. Everyone raved about the food, I was worried we didn't get enough but I'm glad I went with Elizabeth's recommendation-- it was the perfect amount! Couldn't be more pleased with how everything came out, thank you Zachary's!

Zachary’s catered for my husbands birthday and it was amazing! Everything came so nicely and ready to go. The food was delicious, people went in for seconds and thirds! They could not stop talking about it. Made for easy setup/cleanup, allowing for us all to relax and enjoy! Would definitely do this again!

I am so glad I chose Zachary's to cater our grad party. From start to end everything was perfect. The BBQ was delicious. I could not have been happier.

This BBQ was amazing. The meat practically fell off the ribs, and the brisket was so tender, no knife was needed. The chicken was moist and delicious. The potato salad was so good, it was completely gone by the end of the day. Salad was great, and everyone loved the cornbread. The baked beans were excellent, and the corn-on-the-cob was the best I've ever eaten. Not one complaint from the 70+ people at our party. The caterers were so personable, friendly and helpful. The set-up was beautiful, and I loved that they left the leftovers in aluminum containers so we were able to enjoy that food for several dinners afterwards. I highly recommend them!

It was the perfect day. Not 1 person said anything bad about your food and staff. I am sure you will be getting calls from people there. The pig is the moistest pork I have ever had. I am so happy that we went with you. My mother-in-law was very happy. Thank you again. Kudos to your staff, they were wonderful.

I cannot say enough about our experience with Zachary's. Elizabeth helped us out on very short notice and we loved everything about it. The food was great and the service was excellent. Their awesome service took so much of the burden off of us. Our only regret was not ordering dessert. (next time) We look forward to our next event with them.
