Beans and Greens has always served up the country classics that you know and love. The southern restaurant can also make any event special, even your big day, with Beans and Greens catering. Beans and Greens will cater parties, meetings and more. The restaurant even offers help putting together delicious holiday meals.

Not only does Beans and Greens offer great and unique food, but the food is also affordable for every budget.

Beans and Greens will serve up all the southern style meat you grew up with, including 8 to 9 pounds of tasty turkey for only $45 or enjoy the whole or half of a boneless ham. Made-from-scratch chicken fingers are only 75 cents each. For a real taste of home cooking, try the meatloaf, a treat that doesn’t make most catering menus.

A meal isn’t complete without sides. Beans and Greens offers chicken and dressing, sweet potato casserole, vegetables and rolls. To complete the meal they offer desserts, of course. Choose between red velvet, Italian crème or coconut cake, or try them all! If you’d prefer to stay with a down-home country style meal, try one of the delicious fruit cobblers in apple, peach, strawberry or blackberry, pecan or peanut butter pie, cheesecake topped with fruit or banana pudding.
