Happy Fourth of July! This beloved summer holiday is all about family, fun and good food—and here at Colt’s, we have you covered on all three. Just read on as we share a few delicious ways to make this holiday a flavorful one.
Opt for crowd-pleasing flavors
According to a report from Statista, burgers, fries and onion rings are among the most popular Fourth of July foods—so why not bring some home from Colt’s for your family? And since this is a fun family holiday, you’ll want to provide flavors the whole family can agree on and easily share, so you can’t go wrong with crowd-pleasing classics like Wings or our Jumbo Chicken Tenders, too! Plus, don’t forget about barbecue go-tos like our Pulled Pork or St. Louis Baby Back Ribs. Every saucy barbecue dish is not just delicious, but a testament to a unique slice of American culture, too, with sauces stemming from years’ worth of local culinary flair, making barbecue flavors an essential addition to any Fourth of July celebration.
Enjoy classic sides, too
It wouldn’t be a Fourth of July barbecue without some equally delicious sides! Here at Colt’s, beloved picks like Mac & Cheese, Fried Okra, Grammy’s Collard Greens and French Fries—their name may be French, but they’re an American favorite! –are sure to please, pairing perfectly with all of your favorite barbecue eats.
Add your own one-of-a-kind flair
Want to put your own one-of-a-kind stamp on your Fourth of July celebration? Leave the slow-smoked barbecue flavors to us, freeing up some time to focus on homemade refreshments (put the “red” in red, white and blue with a beautiful strawberry-infused pitcher of ice water) and root beer floats, or effortless desserts like apple pie in a jar. Kids will enjoy playing a part in the day’s events, and can often help assemble simple snacks like red, white and blue fruit skewers or colorful Jell-O treats.
Pick the perfect Colt’s option for your family
If you have a large family, you may crave a catering option that helps feed everyone with ease! We also have convenient takeout for individual meals and sides—simply let us know your needs and we’ll put together a plan that works for you.
Create a breezy dining space
On sunny summer days, a comfortable dining space is just as important as the food that’s enjoyed in it! You can’t go wrong with a patio or poolside setup—just be sure to add an umbrella for cool shade, and consider lighting a citronella candle for mosquito-free dining. Or, spread out a classic checkered picnic blanket for a beautiful backyard picnic.
We hope that today’s guide helps you enjoy your Fourth of July to the fullest!
