Our Gainesville Restaurant
About Bolay Gainesville
Home to the University of Florida, Gainesville boasts leading centers for medicine, education, and athletics—most notably, college football. This “college town” is distinctive for its northern Florida landscape and historical buildings. The area offers plenty of activities and attractions, including nature and wildlife areas, parks, museums, hiking trails, golf, and more.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle in college is just as important as figuring out your next steps afterward. College food often ranges from unhealthy to inedible. At Bolay’s Gainesville restaurant, we welcome you to build your own bol using the freshest ingredients available to fuel your body and mind.
Incorporated in 1869 and chartered in 1907, Gainesville is one of the oldest cities in Florida. It boasts old-growth trees and a tree canopy that covers approximately 47% of the city’s land area. The University of Florida, originally named The University of the State of Florida, was moved from Lake City to Gainesville in 1906. In addition to the university and its football games, Gainesville is also known for its support of the visual arts and its hopping music scene. It attracts many festivals and art shows.
Bolay Powers Gainesville Residents with Bold Flavors
Gainesville’s student population and numerous outdoor activities make it a great place for Bolay. We believe that nutrient-rich food can be craveable, and our mission is to bring this flavorful food to as many people as possible. The intentional seasoning of our proteins and the way we develop flavor in our sauces and add-ons can be savored in every bol.
In addition, everything we serve is free of gluten but full of flavor. We have been certified as a Gluten-Free Food Service restaurant by the Gluten Intolerance Group. We also offer a selection of mouthwatering vegan and vegetarian proteins for diners who don’t eat meat.
Bolay Catering Delivers Bold Flavor in Gainesville
When you have an event, either for work or play, consider Bolay as your go-to source for fresh, flavorful, nutrient-rich food. We do all the work, and you get all the credit. We offer two great options for your next event.
The Build Your Own Bols option lets you give your guests the option to select one of our chef-crafted bols or to create their own bol from our selection of bases, veggies, proteins, sauces, and add-ons. If you prefer, you can go for the Build Your Own Party option. We’ll bring the ingredients to you. You can select the proteins, veggies, sauces, bases, and add-ons, and your guests can make their own bols.
Whichever you choose, be sure to add drinks such as sparkling water, fresh-squeezed juices, and fresh-brewed iced tea for your thirsty guests. Complete the meal with a selection of delicious gluten-free cookies.
Do you often find yourself wondering what you will make for dinner on the way home from work? Too tired to food shop, much less cook a meal? We got you. Rather than pulling into the drive-thru at the nearest fast-food restaurant, stop by Bolay and pick up a Build Your Own Family Pack. Your family will get a fresh, nutrient-rich meal and you’ll get the peace of mind that comes with giving your family the best.
Are you planning a special event? If so, consider Bolay Lux. This option is ideal for graduations, birthday parties, galas, weddings, and more. Elevating elegant event catering, our chef-crafted dishes give your guests the essence of freshness in every bite.
