Rancho Parilla (grill)

Rancho food: The food of the Spanish Californian Vaqueros. This unique food culture combines elements of Spanish and Mexican food traditions with the natural culinary abundance of early Alta California. Rancho Parilla offers on site catering with delicious, festive foods cooked over almond and oak wood. We light our fire at such events such as rodeos, birthdays, wild game feeds, weddings, brandings, corporate gatherings and picnics. If you have a desire to celebrate with Rancho food, our hospitable staff will bring the fun of early Spanish California to your event. Please message us for information and pricing.

The Rancho Parilla can cater your special occasion with small bites such as tacos and cerviche or as a full service meal. We also offer bar service featuring Rancho’s delicious hand made cocktails. Ask us about the options!
