For Mainers, March marks the crucial beginning of the early spring season. It definitely doesn’t feel like spring yet, and many of the worst winter storms happen in March; but at least there is an undeniable feeling of hope that spring weather is on its way. If March had a color, it would be green. From the first sign of green buds on the trees, to the green uniform of St. Patrick’s Day, or the addition of more greens to our diets to help shed the winter weight, green plays an important role in March. Here at Elsmere BBQ, we’re welcoming all things green this March with a green thumbs up to everything that makes the month so special.

Snag a Salad
Salad has a bad reputation. Maybe because it’s so fresh? No matter how you feel about salads, we dare you to try one of ours this March. You see, we are hearty meal people too, and we aren’t about to feed you a tiny portion of something light and leafy. We want you to clear your plate and feel satisfied, so we load our salads with a bunch of delicious things that aren’t just “toppings” sprinkled on! Our salads, like the rest of our menu options, are designed to satisfy even the most particular eaters - so no matter whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, or a meat loving omnivore, you’ll find a salad to love. Try the Elsmere salad, and order it YOUR way, by keeping it “as-is”, or adding a savory meat like BBQ chicken, hot smoked salmon, or brisket. You can do the same thing when customizing our wildly popular Caesar salad, which brings the flavor with a mix of creamy caesar dressing, grilled lemon, and shaved parmesan. See what we did there? Your mouth is watering, and it’s watering for SALAD!

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Elsmere BBQ
If you’re ready to skip the sloppy St. Patrick’s Day pub crawl of the Old Port this year, come visit one of Elsmere BBQ’s two great locations for a celebration you’ll actually remember! Bring your friends, cozy up to the bar, or grab a nice big table where you can order a few rounds of one of our local beers on tap. You can relax in comfort without the stress of crowded bars and the inevitable frustration of some guy spilling his green beer all over you. We have nothing bad to say about a traditional Irish breakfast, but we do things a little differently here. If you have a big group, we recommend ordering a few starters for the table. Everything on our menu pairs well with beer, but we especially love the grilled oysters, chili nachos, slow smoked chicken wings, and flatbread pizza. If your crew has a big appetite, add in one of our famous combo plates, which combine two or three of our grilled meats served with cornbread. No matter which menu items your order, you’ll be glad you chose to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Elsmere BBQ, while making everyone else green with envy.

Spring is Officially Here!
March 20th is the first day of Spring, even if it doesn’t quite feel like it. Mainers are optimists, and when we are told that spring is here, we will gladly trade our snow pants for shorts - even if it’s still freezing outside. If you’re ready to kick off Spring with energy and enthusiasm, there’s really no better way than hosting a gathering at your home. Choosing to host a Spring party can be a more cost effective option than going out, so you can look forward to saving some green while having fun in the comfort of your home. Whether you prefer to pick up food for the event, or get delivery, Elsmere BBQ has the solution. Ordering from our large menu will give you enough options to feed every guest, even the vegan or gluten free folks! Whether you choose to host a game night, March Madness party, or movie night, the variety and large portions you’ll get from Elsmere BBQ will be plenty to satisfy big appetites. For take out, call and order from either of the two Elsmere BBQ locations. Just choose the one that’s closest to where you live for your own convenience. For delivery, place your order through 2 Dine In, a local delivery service with the friendliest drivers ever. If your party is on the larger side, and you have more than 30 guests, we urge you to consider choosing Elsmere Bundles & Bulk to feed your hungry friends. Just give us a call for a consultation, and don’t forget to place your order 2 days in advance.

March is here, and at Elsmere BBQ we are ready to give you the fuel to spring into gear with meals you’ll love. Whether you’re turning over a new leaf by choosing a salad, taking your St. Patrick’s Day party to the next level, or kicking off the season with a gathering of friends, food, and fun, Elsmere BBQ is here to help. Visit us today, and welcome Spring the Elsmere way!
