Catering & Beverages

Great food and beverages are our trademark

We are proud of our unique home-style cooking that allows you to satisfy your appetite with delectable Ranch entrees and desserts available only at Rio Cibolo Ranch, a unique event venue in San Antonio! From the moment you arrive, you are fed and entertained with homegrown Texas hospitality and fun!

WE CATER FOR PRIVATE GROUPS OF 50 TO 5,000

Of course, Texas barbecue is our specialty and the most popular item we have to offer.

Our brisket is smoked for many hours in a Texas-sized barbecue pit (which, by the way is the largest barbecue pit this side of the Rio Grande, as far as we know!) Our barbecue chicken melts in your mouth as it falls off the bone and our sausage with special barbecue sauce will make you feel like you have taken a delectable trip through barbecue heaven.

We can cater to any theme party you desire, whether it be a Mexican South of the Border Party, Tex-Mex Party, Hawaiian Luau, Cajun Catfish Fry, or any regional or traditional holiday theme party. Our catering staff has years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry and knows what it takes to cater for private groups of 50 to 5,000.
