Catering / Events

Book JD’s Chili Parlor for your next Special or Corporate Event

While you can always find us at artisan farmers markets and iconic events in the Greater San Antonio area, we’re also available for special events, from country weddings to corporate mixers. We custom design chilis as well as a delicious variety of gourmet comfort foods, such as our 11-cheese Mac-n-Cheese topped with lobster and bacon.

Whether it’s chili, barbecue, gourmet hot dogs or even biscuits and gravy, we can pop-up our parlor for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For a fun treat, we can cook on-site, Chili Queen-style, over a flaming hot pit.

Check out our sample menu of chilis, mac and more, and guarantee your next special event is a true Texas?!

Chili Classes / Parties

Upon request, we also host chili classes. Learn from the professionals how to make a great bowl of red. Explore spice profiles and see which ones appeal to you most. After class, let’s pop-up the chili bar and invite your best friends over for a bowl!

Planning an event? Come on in and sample our chilis at our tasting room at the Local Sprout Food Hub in downtown San Antonio. Contact us to set up an appointment.
