Caning Creek Catering – Food Review

May 26, 2016

Caning Creek 3_resizeA couple of weeks ago, I attended the Pepper Beer Bash at Mully’s Brewery in Calvert County.

While there, I had really delicious Pulled Pork Nachos from Caney Creek Catering. Caney Creek brought along their newest food trailer to serve their food to attendees. Yesterday, I went back from more. This time I had their special of the day…Pulled Pork Sandwich. The meat was tender and sweet. I added some of their homemade BBQ sauce, which was just the way I like it…slightly sweet. It was served on a brioche roll. I had the Cole Slaw on the side and it was the perfect accompaniment.

I talked with Bobby Bonner (one of the owners), who along with his wife (Wendy) and friends Bill Mattingly and his wife (Tracey), cook and operate two trailers. Their first trailer is big; it has at fully equipped kitchen inside. I’ve seen small commercial kitchens with less. And in that space, they serve great, fresh, locally-sourced (if possible) food. One of their best sellers is their Steak & Cheese Sandwich. They hand-slice the steak and use only the best quality ingredients. Their French Fries…yep, hand-cut. Pulled Pork…yep, smoked by them too! Bobby discussed his passion for food, and it is evident. They also have a passion for helping those in need. One of the ways they help is by being involved in “Farming for Hunger” at Serenity Farms, in Benedict.

I enjoyed meeting and talking with them, and I enjoyed their food!

You can find them parked at the circle in the Calvert County Industrial Park on Skipjack Road (off Hallowing Point Road/RT. 231)

Monday – Friday from 6am – 2pm.

They also attend special events, and cater for private groups. You can find them on Facebook at caneycreekcatering.
