Important Notes

  • Full pans will serve 20–22 adult portions and the half pans will serve... (duh...) 10–12 adults.
  • The portions change if you order multiple entrees. The pan portions will generally double as guests will take a little of all items that are out there, but they will take smaller or half portions.
  • Orders are not guaranteed until you receive a tentative invoice from Da Kines.
  • Remember, orders are confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you receive a tentative invoice from us, the faster you let Dakines know what your intentions are, the faster your order will be confirmed, and you won't be pushed to the end of the line.
  • Just remember, you can change the items and amounts of your order as much as you need to. We just need a confirmed amount and itemized order 48 hours prior to the event.
