Must Have Menu Items For A Memorial Day BBQ

Posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Chips Restaurants

Memorial Day – observed annually on the last Monday of May to honor those who have given their lives while serving as a member of the United States military. As such, many often choose to celebrate by hosting a Memorial Day BBQ (which also often doubles as their first BBQ of the “unofficial” summer season).

That being said, do your weekend plans include a BBQ at some point? If you’ll be hosting one, you can bet that guests are most looking forward to the food – especially if it’s the first BBQ they are attending since the weather has started to improve. To help ensure that your party is a hit, we’ve put together a list of food items that must be on your menu for this year’s Memorial Day BBQ; check it out below:
