Curbside Dinner & Dessert Packages

Anderson’s catering services are also ideal for a dinner & dessert family night in.

What Our Guests' Say


Hi Holly! In the midst of cleaning up after my mom’s 80th yesterday, I had to take a minute to say “THANK YOU!!!” The party was a huge success! I so appreciated your help with the food ordering process! It was by far my biggest worry, but after talking it through with you, I was not worried at all! Now…the food! Delivery was perfectly on time! The delivery person was extremely polite and professional, got the food where it needed to go, explained everything and was off before most even realized he had been here. Kudos to this young man! Please thank him for us!

The packaging was incredible!!! Everything was hot, and fresh! Cold things were nice and chilled. It was all delicious! All of our guests gave it rave reviews! The portioning of the beef was sooooo helpful for me! I was dipping and making sandwiches, and the portions were perfect! The rolls were super fresh, as well, and that is tough with the weck rolls. Again, all I can say is Thank You so much! You will be hearing from us, and I am sure some of our guests as well. One more thing…the cost was very reasonable and the quality was exceptional! Please feel free to pass on and share my comments! 5 stars for Anderson’s event catering!

If your group desires to have personalized bagged or boxed lunches we can do that! Indeed each guest could select their own customized sandwich, side item and drink and then we would label it neatly by name or number for ease in distribution.
In the "Party Food To Go" package – what is the difference between a platter and a tin?

Tins are generally preferred for those opting to serve the all natural roast beef or all natural turkey hot. Platters are generally preferred for offering cold sandwiches.

If you are ordering our all natural roast beef in tins, the beef is cooked more rare and platters are cooked more medium.

We do not always need electricity though many times it is preferred if available. Our catering coordinator can best answer this, or any other more intricate party package questions regarding our services based on your menu and guest count.

Our catering coordinator certainly can assist you to customize offerings where possible. Some special features we have “scooped up” are the Bride & Groom’s favorite specific sundaes, to matching sprinkle colors and sundae toppings for themed events.

We do offer some discounts; our catering coordinator can discuss this with you, please call 716-633-2302.

If I have ice cream delivered to me how long will it stay frozen?

We prefer to deliver your ice cream as close to serving time as possible. Ice cream sundae packages are delivered in boxes packed with cold chillers and foam to protect the product. With that said, you have a short window of approximately 30 minutes from the time we deliver before it will start to melt*

(*when the boxes are kept out of the sun and covered with a blanket provided by you.)

For those who prefer we can deliver ice cream in our rentable “Silver Bullet Coolers” which will elongate the shelf life. These are just like an old fashioned beach cooler that is on wheels. It will keep tubs of ice cream and pre scooped dishes/sundaes frozen for up to 3 hours from the time it is delivered.*

(*When kept closed and out of the sun and covered with a blanket provided by you.)

The “silver bullet cooler” has a rental fee and an additional fee if not returned within 24 hours of use. (The silver bullet cooler can be returned to the closest Erie County Anderson’s location to you.)

What is the cancellation policy?
Orders cancelled less than 3 business days before the event date may incur a cancellation fee, regardless of type of order.
What if my group is tax exempt?
There is no tax charged to those groups with a tax exempt form.
What is the gratuity and admin fee?
We charge 10% gratuity and an 8% admin fee for events requiring service. That allows us “tip” the people that prepare and pack the catered items.
