From backyard barbeques to high end, elegant affairs

Courville's caters many food items

Big Rich Courville’s name is synonymous with everything that is good and that tastes good in Southeast Texas. If you lived in a box, odds are you would still know who he is because most likely, by gift or by commerce, he has fed you at some point.

Storms, floods, charity auctions, fundraisers or perhaps at his venue on College, Big Rich Courville, it seems, is always there for us. Now it’s our turn and time to remember those who are always here for us when we need them by supporting our local businesses.

When planning a Christmas party or New Year’s Eve bash, Courville’s Catering is perfect for your laid-back and casual events. They offer a variety of menu items from their famous gumbo to the award-winning brisket. Big Rich and his team will wow your guests with selections of Cajun classics, southern staples and Texas barbecue.

Interested in a more upscale affair? Courville’s Carly Andrews is a Southeast Texas raised award-winning chef, and graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Austin. She and the Courville’s staff will help to design the perfect event, with her personal execution of multiple cuisines and flavor profiles using classic French techniques accommodating your needs and budget. They will work to execute a flawlessly smooth operation by helping to coordinate and facilitate any event with the right staffing, equipment, rentals, and many other often overlooked details.

They bring the yogurt to you

The newest addition to the Courville’s Catering fleet is a full service frozen yogurt trailer serving the same flavors you’ll find at The Yogurt Spot. The yogurt trailer is the perfect addition to your next event bringing a personalized and sweet experience to your location.

Live music

The only listening room between Houston and Baton Rouge, Courville’s banquet facility hosts intimate evenings of live music and delicious food. Featuring acts from all over the world in just about any genre, recent artists to come through have been Adam Hood, Grammy-award winner Peter Rowan and Front Porch Thang, to name a few.

It’s the perfect night out that ends by 10 p.m. with incredible musical talents and delicious, unending Cajun cuisine.
