  • David's BBQ exceeds expectations. I cannot stress how much Bobby and Alicia did for us. I'm not the biggest fan of BBQ, and going into our initial taste test, I wasn't intending on booking with David's, but the quality of the food and Bobby's pitch on helping with decorations and some of the logistics of the wedding completely changed my mind. Bobby and Alicia were very flexible, updating the invoice every time we made a change, and nailed the recipes we provided for our preferred appetizers and signature drinks. In addition to cooking and serving the food, David's took care of setting up and tearing down all the decorations and tables at the reception venue. Bobby used a combination of decorations we provided, as well as some of his own, and even made signs for us. When we realized that we didn't have linens, Bobby and Alicia took care of arranging the required rentals and added the cost to our invoice. On the day of, Bobby and his staff went out of their way to make su... Read more

  • These servers were awesome. We were never thirsty or hungry. We had a "personal caterer/assistant" that checked on us where ever we were. At one point we were taking photos away from the cocktail area, and our caterer ran out to the site and brought us a bit of all of our appetizers so we could taste them before they ran out. After our dances, they were right there with cold water and asking if we needed anything. The food was really good!! And I love their decorations program. They helped our reception area look beautiful.

  • Way above and beyond! That is how I would describe our entire wedding catering/planning experience with Bobby and the entire crew at David’s BBQ & Catering. Our (first and only) tasting was at David’s and it was a great experience! From the minute we walked in, we were catered to like we had already hired them. Bobby sat us down at a table that was covered with an array of appetizer samples, dinnerware examples, menus, price sheets...essentially all of the information we were looking for. We sat down and began sampling their delicious appetizers while Bobby quickly got us drinks. When he returned, he went through a brief, yet very detailed powerpoint that showcased what David’s is all about when it comes to catering weddings. In particular, he highlighted the importance they place on customer service and how we, as the bride and groom, would have a server assigned to us throughout the night. We were very impressed with everything to this point. Once he finished his presentation a... Read more

  • Bobby's team catered our wedding. They went above and beyond for us through the whole planning process and that didn't stop for our big day. Mo instantly brought us appetizers while we were getting our pictures taken, Christina made some amazing drinks (with limited items available)! The carving station was the best. Food was delicious and hot. The other team member(forgot his name, sorry!) ensured we didn't need anything throughout the night. They even took a picture with our photo booth and we're the sweetest people I have dealt with throughout the whole wedding. Hire them! You definitely won't be disappointed.

  • David's was an excellent choice for our wedding! We first met with Bobby, who wowed us at our first consultation with generous amounts of our customized choices for our wedding menu. Bobby's enthusiasm, care, and knowledge of wedding logistics, catering, and wedding decor are unmatched. He suggested trying a customized s'mores bar, which made our wedding more unique and was a huge success with our guests! Alicia is very responsive and does a wonderful job communicating and implementing those details (linens, centerpieces), that could otherwise overlook. On the day of our wedding, the tables were so beautiful, it exceeded all expectations of how we imagined it. David's staff treated my husband and I like royalty, always making sure we were fed and wined. It's always suggested that you chose your catering carefully for your wedding, and if you go with David's, you can be sure it will turn out excellent! They made our wedding so special, personal, and classy! Thank you so much for being ... Read more

  • My family cooked the meat for my wedding so I had David's cater the sides and Bobby was my bartender. Bobby and Alisha were wonderful to work with, extremely responsive and helpful. The sides they catered were delicious, the guests raved about how great the loaded mashed potatoes and baked beans were! Bobby also did an amazing job bartending and was so wonderful to have around at the wedding.

  • Before choosing David's for our wedding caterer we spoke to several others in the area. David's really shone with professionalism and responsiveness to emails. Alicia answered many questions and was very helpful. The pricing was very reasonable and there were a lot of options to choose from. We did use the bartending service which was a good choice. The day of the wedding everything was on time according to the timeline we provided. Service was excellent and we received many compliments on the delicious food. We also were able to sit down and be served and got to enjoy the food. The quantity was very close to perfect we did not have too much in the way of leftovers. I highly recommend David's we are very happy we went with them.

  • My wife and I hired Davids Catering to Cater my Daughters wedding which occurred last night. They arrived as agreed upon and they went above and beyond my expectations. Bobby and his staff arrived on time and me with me to assure that everything is going as planned. He made me feel at ease. We paid for Horderves for after the ceremony, while family and friends waited for the Bride and Groom to finish with the photos. We agreed to 2 types of meat (Chicken/Pulled Pork) with Mashed Potatoes and yellow squash with zucchini. We had unsweet tea, Lemonade, and water. It was a buffet. Bobby and his staff served us. The service was great. As we finished our dinner, the staff picked up our plates and they prepared us for the champagne toasts. The staff members poured champagne into everyone's glass and after the toasts were finished. The staff members assisted with cutting up the wedding cake. Bobby and his staff cleaned up the buffet area and stored the extra food for us in the ven... Read more

  • David’s catering was one of our most valued vendors. We were so impressed with Bobby and Alicia during our initial tastings. Alicia was flexible with us with menu changes and was always quick to respond to emails. One thing we appreciated most about David’s catering was that we could drop off some of our décor the day before the wedding. Guests raved about the appetizers and there were heaps of leftovers for family to take home after the reception. We especially loved how Davids catering brought our vision of a “cookie bar” to life with freshly made cookies. Thank you to the two staff members that assisted with set up, serving and clean up. Our reception was smooth sailing because of you ladies! Book Davids catering with confidence – they are accurately priced for the quality and service provided.
