In 1964, Gary’s parents, Bob and Julie Steinwachs moved from Buffalo, New York, and established Buffalo Bill’s. As the area grew so did the business. They started as a coffee shop on Venice Ave and by the late 70’s catering was the mainstay. In 1982, when Gary and Lucy were just newlyweds, they bought the business. Since then they have made it their mission to produce successful parties for their community.

From this facility, they operate their award winning off-site catering business as well as opening the BBQ Restaurant in September 2015.
