In 2000, enthusiastic employees opened their doors to the first Moe’s Southwest Grill in Atlanta with a boisterous “Welcome to Moe’s!” And a culture of welcoming, warm service has followed ever since. Moe’s now has over 650 locations across the country. And, as Fortune notes, it has topped the Harris poll as America’s favorite Mexican restaurant for the past two years. Moe’s catering menu can bring southwestern flavor to any office lunch and learn or casual taco Tuesday. Here’s everything you need to know about ordering catering from Moe’s Southwest Grill.

The Menu

Moe’s Southwest Grill boasts over 20 all-natural ingredients in their flavorful recipes. They make the salsas, guacamole, queso, and pico de gallo in-house daily. Grass-fed steak, all-natural chicken, and organic tofu make up the protein bases for all the fajitas, tacos, and burritos.

Repeat favorites include the do-it-yourself taco and fajita buffets. Soft or crunchy corn tortillas start your spread. Choose from chicken, ground beef, pulled pork, sirloin steak, and tofu. Add on black or pinto beans. Taco bars also include rice, cheese, lettuce, and sour cream. While the fajita bars add sautéed veggies and guacamole. Both come with plenty of chips and salsa to feed your crowd. Depending on the size and type of your event, you may even want to add a salad or nacho bar, too.

You can also order individual burrito boxes that come already made. Each box comes with a burrito specified with protein and bean fillings, with individually portioned chips and salsa on the side. For extra customization, add on sides of guacamole, queso, and pico de gallo.

Portions Guide

When determining how much food to order, think about the type of event you’re catering. For a particularly focused meeting, or when lunch needs to be on the quicker side, go with the pre-portioned burrito boxes. Order one per person. Either allow everyone to choose their own in advance or order a variety for people to select from at the event. If people are particularly hungry, add a few sides so people can bulk up their meals that way. If you’re looking for something a little lighter, Moe’s Southwest Grill also has an option for mini burritos. They’re smaller versions of the classic burritos and they come with chips and salsa.

When you have an event that’s more social, the buffet option is the way to go. Maybe it’s a lunch and learn where everyone is eating during a presentation. Or, it could be a more casual event that encourages mingling. The taco and burrito buffets are perfect for a group of at least 10 people. When ordering through ezCater, the platform will help you determine exactly how much food you need. But it’s always a good idea to order for slightly more than your headcount. That way you’ll have plenty of protein, fillings, and sides. This is especially important if you’re planning on a break where people can go back for seconds.

Service Tips

That first “Welcome to Moe’s” became a motto for a good reason. Moe’s Southwest Grill promises the best possible customer service experience. Their delivery teams set up buffet trays in an order that best allows peak flow of traffic. And they work fast to make sure everything gets onto plates hot. If you’re ordering for a particularly large group, make sure you have access on both sides of the buffets so guests can take their time filling without causing a backup. Moe’s catering provides the food you need to call any event a success.
