Meet the team behind the magic in City Smoke House's kitchen. From daily operations down to the very details of making sure your deliveries are at your door on time, our team consists of food-loving, fun-filled, and passionate aficionados.
Operation Manager. Mayo to our sandwich. Mother to us all. Caitlin 'Quiggie' Quigley grew up in the Bay Area, having previously worked with Peet's Coffee, she's well drilled in the F&B industry. On the daily, Caitlin ensures your orders are in, deliveries are sent out on time, everyone in the office is doing what they're supposed to be doing, and that the food tastes good (not part of the job description, but she insists). Her recommendations are the beef brisket, the ribs, and the collard greens.
Head Chef. Jalapeño Connoisseur. Father of two boys. Mario is the first person in the kitchen every morning at 5AM, taking the meats out of the smoker for the day. Not only does he prep all of your customized meals and menus, he also preps the signature barbecue sauce and rub that goes into all of our dishes. The silent and brooding type, he always chows down lunch without complaint. From the mac and cheese, to the fruit salad, to the baked beans, there's nothing on the menu that exits our door without Mario's magic touch!
The Muscle. The Scout of the Finest Ingredients. Father of four girls and one boy. You might have noticed the same last name as our Head Chef, and yes, they are indeed brothers. On the daily, Cesar scours markets to bring us the best quality of products for the kitchen to cook and prepare. An easy-going prompt man, he's always right on the dot, back in time for lunch.
Social Media Marketing Coordinator. La Croix always in one hand, some sort of electronic device on the other. Stuck to Caitlin's side, Grace offers a second opinion in food tasting. She can also often be found chasing Mario around the kitchen, taking photos of him as he cooks, stirs, peels, and chops. But on a more important note, she created and manages the website and the social media accounts.
