*Solved* Catering/Food Advice

Ok H/A, I need suggestions. My wife and I are hosting the UFC payperview this weekend. Normally when we host them, when everyone gets here we'll just pool money and order pizza, but that's getting old.

So far we've thought of two options, Panda Express and a local Greek restaurant, which both offer party size orders.


I'm looking for ideas. What should we do for food for 10 people?

    My mouth waters at the mere mention of Greek food. Can't go wrong with that.

    I was going to suggest a massive platter of nachos... thats a pretty easy do-it-yourselfer type thing. Cheese, sour cream, diced tomatoes and/or salsa

    I don't think I could make a nacho platter large enough to provide a full meal to 10 people.

    I dunno, seems like the most obvious suggestion then is just your cookie cutter Chinese or burgers or etc etc.

    I'd go with the Greek food, like souvlaki platters with rice, greek salad, chicken or pork skewers, potato.. As mentioned... my mouth is watering...

    They sell deli/sandwich platters at grocery stores that are pretty good, and it'll be cheaper than Chinese/Greek. Though, not as good.

    Those are good, but I tend to think that buying, or even making, a deli meat platter and having some rolls so that people can make sandwiches works out better. Everyone gets to choose what they want, and it tastes really good. If you don't mind spending the extra time, just buying the meat and making the platter yourself is a lot cheaper.

    Most of the ones I see around here are, like, 4 pounds of meat or so, a bunch of cheese, and some rolls, along with condiments. Everyone makes their own, and it's generally cheaper than buying all that stuff on its own.

    nothin goes with violent barbarianism like roasted meat. Barbecue! Hamburgers and a shank, preferably cooked on a stick. Then, civilize your tribal urges (much like the UFC itself) with a decent selection of wines. Have beer on hand later for crushing it up. A smallish platter of meat and cheese with buns and butter will keep the munchies away for the after-dinner part.

    Uninformed opinions aside, We'll be too busy to cook anything on our own.

    Than, I'm thinking we'll do something along the lines of what you suggested. Thanks.
