We have been in business and catering since 2003!
Well over 100 per year (dozens of which are weddings, sometimes as many as 3 per day!)
We have catered events of up to 1000 guests
Sometimes yes. We have done this successfully for many years and understand the capacity of our kitchen and our staff.
Absolutely! We are a fully licensed and insured catering company.
In our restaurant's commercial kitchen (we have a large facility!) Occasionally we can cook on site if proper equipment|facility is available (many venues do not allow this)
For a menu, yes. However, much of the cost of a full service cater will be determined by not only the menu chosen, but by the number of service staff necessary which is dependent on the venue chosen and the requirements of that venue.
Some venues have minimum staffing & service requirements, whereas others have none.
The cost will vary with your menu, number of guests, service level and other factors. A 50% deposit is required to secure your date and servers. You can pay the balance at any interval you wish with the event balance due 15 days prior to your event.
Offering more staff service elevates the service environment for your guests, but keep in mind that more service usually requires more staffing which adds to your overall cost.
We bill a standard gratuity of 18%, you’re welcome to tip more if you choose!
Your caterer is essentially setting up a private restaurant just for you, for one meal, one time. Procuring, producing and delivering everything to you (considering gas, vehicle maintenance and travel time), setting up the room (many times including setting up and breaking down all tables and chairs, catering equipment, and bars), bringing in linens, dishes, glassware, and staff, and then cleaning and returning everything and everyone to where we started... it's a lot more than most people consider.
Cost is a huge consideration, we get that! We have built our business since 2003 by offering an exceptional level of quality food and service to each of our clients. We are fully licensed and insured. Our foods are prepared in a commercial kitchen. Our employees are all covered by workers compensation insurance, and only our best staff get to do catering -- it's considered an opportunity in our business for those that have done well in the restaurant! Doing business the right way has a certain level of overhead and expense. You deserve the best and that is what we will do for you.
Bride & Groom taste FREE for most of our wedding menus and events (unless under $2000 total, then there will be a modest charge)
Orders totaling $500 or less may be canceled up to 72 hours before the event date without penalty. Cancellations within 72 hours of the event date will incur a 50% cancellation fee.
Orders totaling $500 or more may be canceled up to 15 days before the event date without penalty. Cancellations within 15 days of the event will incur a 50% cancellation fee.
We’re happy to help you design the look and feel of your food & beverage service similar to something that you have seen. We’re also happy to recommend a great event planner who can help build and coordinate these details -- and lots of other, non-catering details -- so your event can have the look and feel you want and so you don’t have to lift a finger on your event day!

Pretty much any way you want! Buffet (self-served or staffed), family style, individual plates, fancy or simple. (plus drop off & setup)
This will depend on the need based largely on your vision and the venue. Since servers add extra cost for you, we work to be efficient and avoid adding unnecessary cost. Our decades of experience helps make sure we get this right!
Whatever the event requires once again depending largely on your vision and venue. (our standard is 1 bartender per 50 guests for most bar menus).
Not specifically and not a “flat” fee. Instead, set up and take down costs are determined by your specific event needs and venue requirements, and are part of the total service staff cost.
For most weddings and venues, 90-120 minutes is standard for set up and 30-60 minutes for take down.
We can arrange rentals for these items if your venue does not provide them.
Black shirts, pants, shoes
We package up all leftovers for you to take, distribute or donate as you see fit.
Several! While our specialty is BBQ, we have been serving a Fresh Mexican menu for more than a decade and also offer a "Black Tie" Tri-Tip & Chicken menu.
We can provide non-alcoholic beverages and bartending service to serve alcoholic beverages, however we cannot sell you alcohol. A plus of this arrangement is that you can buy your own alcohol, saving you some money and allowing you and your guests to get exactly what you want.
15 days prior to your event
No, but we can cut & serve it!
Yes we do!
