When cooking for a mixed crowd, it is always wise to provide a couple of vegetarian options, since some of the people you don't know very well might not eat meat! You could grill these up on the other side of the grill when doing burgers, and then they can put these on a bun with all of the traditional burger toppings - a win win!
