We Offer Corporate Drop Offs Food Truck Events Full Service Catering Bar Service

We raised over $12,000 and fed over 6000 people a hot, fresh meal in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.  Click the Backyard Cares button to help keep it going as Houston rebuilds.

Our Value Proposition

Backyard Catering will save you money when you order from us.  We may not be the lowest price option in every category, but we are the low risk option across the board.  We guarantee our food will be fresh, hot, delicious and on time, every time.  When we serve, our staff will be friendly, helpful and efficient.

When the New England Patriots came to town for the Superbowl, we were the caterer of choice (and we executed perfectly.)  If we can turn an event for 1700 people around in 8 days without a hitch, we can do the same for you.

Choosing to spend your catering dollars with Backyard Catering also keeps your money here in the community.  We are a family owned business in Cypress, not a chain based in Chicago, or an online ordering system based on the West Coast.  We live here, go to church here, hire people from here and invest in this community.

The Company

The Backyard Grill has been a fixture in the Cypress/Jersey Village community since 2001.  Our family friendly atmosphere, fun staff and scratch-made food make this the top restaurant in the area.

Backyard is heavily involved with the community, supporting Cy-Fair area schools and non profits not only through donations and discounts, but our annual BYG Bash Golf Tournament benefitting both Cy-Hope and the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation.

Our Team

MARK MCSHAFFRY has continuously owned The Backyard Grill since 2001 and has worked in the restaurant/bar business his entire career, running and owning numerous establishments as well as being on the boards of a number of local Non-Profits and a recent past chairman of the Cy-Fair Chamber of Commerce.

JOHN HOMRIGHAUSEN has owned a number of mid-sized catering and food operations since 2001.  During the economic downturn he joined forces with Backyard and now manages all catering and foodtruck operations.

Backyard Catering specializes in comfort food.  We offer everything from casseroles to burgers to our highly favored Fajitas. (We have been told that we cater fajitas better than most Mexican restaurants.) We also offer party trays for more casual events, and higher end foods and “small plates” for receptions and cocktail parties.  Everything we make is from scratch and made to order just for you!
