- 3 Min Read
Need food for your next meeting or event in Baton Rouge? Here are the top boxed lunches and individually wrapped options, delivered right to your office.
1. Cowboy Chicken
Covered in a secret dry rub and then baptized by fire. That is the unique combination that gives the chicken from Cowboy Chicken its signature flavor. Since 1981, they’ve been cooking all-natural chicken over a wood burning stove, offering a bold-tasting and healthy alternative to fast food.
Try it on its own with the popular Half Chicken Boxed Lunch, which includes half a chicken, a roll and two sides (such as Mac and Cheese, Spanish Rice, and Twice-Baked Potatoes, just to name a few). Or try it in a sandwich with their Sandwich Boxed Lunch (BBQ or original) or in one of their famous enchiladas.
2. Hannah Q Smokehouse
Born from humble beginnings, (a small tent on Friday nights in a parking lot) Hannah Q Smokehouse has grown into a beloved local institution that regularly runs out of barbecue due to high demand. From the start their goal was to provide South Louisiana with great BBQ and it’s safe to say that they’ve succeeded in spades.
For further proof, try their Two-BBQ Smoked Meats Boxed Lunch, which comes with two meats and two sides. Choose from Pulled Pork, Smoked Chicken, Brisket, Smoked Sausage and Baby Back Ribs. Then tackle the sides menu, which includes such deletable gems as Smoked Gouda Mac and Cajun Slaw. If there’s any room left, be sure to order their famous Mississippi Mud Pie for dessert.
3. Caliente Mexican Craving
Caliente Mexican Craving is such a hotspot, it’s literally in the name. Caliente means “hot” and they are living up to that descriptor with both their style and their authentic Mexican cuisine.
Try their Fajita Boxed Lunch, and choose from chicken, steak or shrimp. In the mood for something more classic? Give the Caliente Class Boxed Lunch a go and enjoy a chicken quesadilla, a flauta, a chimi bite, rice, beans and chips. No matter what you choose, it’s likely you’ll be craving more in the future.
4. Zoes Kitchen
Fresh food that is simultaneously tasty and heart healthy? Yes, please. Look no further than Zoes Kitchen. With their menu full of Mediterrean-inspired fare, they are a great choice for groups of all sizes.
Their most popular menu item is the Kabob Combo Boxed Lunch, featuring two kabobs, two sides and delicious sauce. But that’s just the beginning. Choose from two dozen Boxed Lunch options, ranging from Rustic Lamb Pita to Falafel and Salad Plate to Steak Rollup.
As Melissa from Port Allen put it, “Delicious, healthy option! You can never go wrong with Zoes.”
5. Serop’s Cafe
With slow roasted meats cooked with olive oil, garlic and spices, Serop’s has been serving some of the best shawarma, gyros and other Meditterean staples since they first opened in 1979. They’ve now grown to seven restaurant locations in the Greater Baton Rouge area, bringing their passion for cooking to an ever-widening customer base.
Find out why people can’t seem to get enough of this beloved local spot by ordering the office some of Serop’s Boxed Lunches, which come packed full with chicken shawarma (spit-roasted chicken), gyro (spit-roasted beef and lamb), salad, rice pilaf, hummus and pita.
