What the heck is a Chicken Lip..?
Our World Famous Chicken Lips are made with voluptous chicken breast strips, rolled in flour and buttermilk, they are fried and dunked in Spicy Lip Sauce (think boneless Buffalo wings but 10X better) Lips are served with homemade Budweiser Blue Cheese Dressing or Ranch if you prefer.
We recommend 2-4 lips per person depending on how much other stuff you are serving.
Graze Pizza is "Soft & Crispy and Light as Air".
Our hand tossed 16" New York Style Pizza is made with an all natural Sourdough Starter. It takes 5 days for our pizza dough to ferment and develop its fabulous flavor....

We LOVE boneless, skinless chicken thighs because they taste great and stay moist and juicy for a long time which makes them perfect for catering.
We serve them three ways: Beer Marinade, Italian or Simple Salt & Pepper.
We recommend 2 thighs per person plus sides.
Chicken breast, pounded thin, rolled in egg wash and seasoned Italian bread crumbs. Pan sautéed until golden brown and crispy, topped with marinara, mozzarella and lots of reggiano parmigiano.
We recommend 2 pieces per person plus sides.
This is our favorite way to cook fish!
We dip it in butter, then season it with the Food Guru's Seafood Spice and sear it on an HOT griddle to create a delicious crust... and serve it with tomato dill beurre blanc. Wow!
This makes a great second entree... for the fish lovers!
