Tens of thousands of visitors from around the world make the trek each year to Collin County to visit Southfork Ranch to experience what life might be like as a legendary oil baron. Now, whether they are coming to the famed ranch and mansion or entertaining in their own space, party hosts can bring the big flavors of Texas to their table with catering from Southfork Ranch Catering.


Executive Chef Juan Rivas has created an expansive collection of catering menus, with beautiful options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. While there are unique offerings representing our global community here in North Texas, some of the menu’s most exciting highlights celebrate the dining that might have been experienced by the Ewing family for their celebrations at Southfork Ranch.


Bobby’s Barbecue celebrates the character brought to life by Patrick Duffy and includes a broad array of Texas-style barbecued meats, including a mesquite smoked brisket, barbecued chicken, smoked sausage and pork ribs. The fabulous smoked meats are accompanied by all the favorite sides like potato salad, creamy cole slaw, beans and a wide array of relish options, all along with Southwestern cornbread muffins. The Ewing theme continues with JR’s Steak Dinner, which starts with a wedge salad served with a cooked-to-order rib-eye. Sides include a loaded baked potato, grilled vegetables and house-made warm rolls. Miss Ellie’s Recipes presents a delicious take on Lone Star favorites. Guests choose between chicken friend steak or chicken with cream gravy. The meal is served with a mixed salad, red-skinned mashed potatoes and seasoned green beans with sauteed onions and applewood-smoked bacon.




The menu celebrates not only the Ewing clan, but also the history of Dallas itself. Plated entrees are named after signature streets in Dallas such as Commerce Avenue, Mockingbird Lane and Greenville Avenue. To bring experiential dining, Southfork Catering offers a wide array of carving stations, including Barbecued Brisket, Whole Prime Rib and Beef Tenderloin. Small plate action stations range from Shrimp & Grits and Braised Beef Short Ribs to Pork Belly and Wild Mushroom Ragout.


All meals have the option of ending with a sweet treat. Desert offerings include a traditional bread pudding, strawberries Romanoff and JR’s Triple Threat, a dark and white chocolate chip cookie in the shape of Texas with caramelized bananas and Baileys anglaise.




Southfork Ranch Catering can accommodate groups ranging from 10 to 10,000 people and can be offered throughout the ranch property and across the entire Metroplex. Its expert event coordinators can work to craft a custom menu for any event including all food, beverage and alcohol, and can assist with rentals and other event needs as well.
