Munching on Brunch at Sweet Baby Ray’s Restaurant

For some, the weekend means only one thing: brunch. It’s an excuse to forgo the oatmeal, yogurt and bran cereal we know so well Monday through Friday, and gorge ourselves on first seconds and thirds of bacon, eggs, and various sweet pastries. Sweet Baby Ray’s Restaurant in Elk Grove is getting in on the brunch game and starting a few new traditions sure to please the customers.

Sweet Baby Ray’s Brunch Buffet
Just in time for football season, the doors of Sweet Baby Ray’s Restaurant are opening early for Sunday Brunch Buffet on the second Sunday of every month, starting September 14, from 10:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. No need to wait for your food to come to you, hungry brunch-goers can take the initiative and grab a plate up at the buffet. Enjoy a tailgating themed menu featuring hearty foods as well as a variety of salads, pastries and fruit. Expect to be wowed with an omelet station, carved tequila-cilantro grilled flank steak and carved slow smoked beef brisket, as well as grilled cheddar bratwurst, smoked polish sausage, barbecue ribs, barbecue chicken, pulled pork, grilled pork chops with long pepper and yellow pepper relish, three-bean and three-meat chili and ditalini pasta in cheddar cheese sauce.

Like salad? Fill your plate with Southwestern shrimp and avocado salad, Caesar salad and a tossed salad, but save room for a sumptuous dessert spread including Super Bowl trifle, chocolate fudge brownies and grilled pound cake with cinnamon apples.

The brunch buffet is $19.99 for adults and $8.99 for children, ages 6-12. Reservations are highly recommended.
