  • If I could safely fly to a mountain without worrying about a global pandemic, I would do so just to stand on that mountain and proclaim my appreciation for Old Blue. I don’t mean to be hyperbolic, but working with Old Blue (Kari, specifically) has been the only non-stressful experience in the entire wedding planning process. My fiancé and I (and my fiancé’s parents) arranged a tasting before deciding on the menu and, let me tell you, the peach bourbon beans alone had me sold. Obviously I’m excited to marry my fiancé, but I think the both of us are secretly just as excited for the beans. Kari was very friendly, walked us through the catering process, and generally went above and beyond to accommodate us. Kari offered to let us borrow wedding decor/signage Old Blue had collected from former weddings, transport additional decor/props to the venue in their truck, helped us save money, and answered the phone every single time we called, which has not been the case for some...

  • Old Blue BBQ was an incredible caterer for our wedding! I highly recommend them not only for weddings, but any event where you want great BBQ! During the wedding planning process, my wife and I had planned to do tasting with other potential caterers, but after the tasting with Kari and Old Blue, we were seriously blown away and ended up booking them that day! Needless to say, we were not disappointed by our decision and they were AWESOME throughout the rest of the planning process and on our wedding day.  First thing to note - The food was INCREDIBLE. I've had good BBQ, but Old Blue is not just a run-of-the-mill BBQ spot - Old Blue is definitely in the top tier in the DMV area. My friends and family are not usually ones to comment on food at weddings, but I had guests reach both during and after the wedding praising the food and asking me where Old Blue was so they could order BBQ from them!  In addition to great food, Old Blue had incredible service throughout the ent...

  • Old Blue BBQ was such an amazing vendor to work with for our wedding day and we couldn't be happier we chose them! Kari was our primary POC and she went above & beyond to ensure we LOVED not only the food but every detail of the day. The food was incredible--so much so that we barely had leftovers because everyone kept going back for more! They were great in helping us work with our price-point. They also have a great bride-share service where you can choose lots of fun centerpiece decor for the day. It was awesome not having to worry about purchasing vases, wood rounds (which are crazy expensive!), table numbers, or any of those other details and know they had me covered (another huge savings for us!). Kari was incredibly on top of everything leading up to the wedding and helped me think of things I would have otherwise never thought about. The day of the event, Kari's team was ON IT. They consistently checked in with me and my husband to see if we needed anything at all, and even che... Read more

  • If you are looking for someone to caterer your event, LOOK NO FURTHER AND HIRE THEM. Old Blue BBQ was one of my favorite parts of our wedding. We had so many compliments on how good the food was. One of my favorite comments made by one of our wedding guests was "normally when I go to a wedding and they bring my food out, it's cold. I was pleasantly surprised to get food that was hot". That is absolutely the type of service that we were looking for in a vender. We had to change our wedding date twice and they were so accommodating. They helped reduce the stress of changing the wedding during a pandemic and made itSO much easier. We also received many compliments on how friendly the staff was. They were very energetic and attentive to us and our wedding guests. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer.

  • Old Blue BBQ was a great choice for our wedding. Kari and the rest of the team made note of allergens and our vision for our wedding day food. Not only was the food excellent, but they were also willing to help with decor! They have a bride share that can be used to set up centerpieces. A few small touches went a long way. Guest were raving over the food (especially the baked beans), and my family even decided to take some home to keep enjoying! This is not your traditional picnic BBQ, they make a southern staple look classy!

  • I have never once heard people rave about wedding food - it’s usually the typical chicken/beef/fish option. And everyone walks away hungry. Not with Old Blue! We had a beef barbecue buffet and it was a dream. From candied bacon appetizers to creamy mac n cheese sides and super soft brisket, people are still talking about my wedding food one month later. And this is all for a super affordable wedding rate. which they work with you to get the best deal. Not only that - the service is out of this world amazing. Working with Kari and Kelly was such a joy, and they went above and beyond to be reassuring to me throughout the whole process, especially on my wedding day. From food to pricing to decor to moral support - I can’t recommend this team enough. My family will definitely be catering from them forever!

  • Old Blue was really wonderful to work with throughout the planning process. Kelly answered every question I had (trust me there were a lot) so quickly and informatively I felt like I never had to pick up the phone once and could do everything so easily via email. They also were so open to all of my ideas and made me truly feel like everything I needed/envisioned for the wedding day would be no problem at all. Truly just a top notch all around vendor!

  • Wedding wire helped us find Old Blue BBQ and Kari was so great, responsive and easy to work with. She treated us as friends and we had an excellent experience from start to finish! Staff arrived on time the day of and set up quickly and quietly while we had our ceremony in Grammys front yard. Everything was perfect. Order the Beef Brisket! We “sold out”!!

  • Kelly, Stephen and Keri created and delivered a phenomenal experience for our wedding rehearsal dinner. The bbq meats were amazing (absolutely best brisket ever), the sides were top notch. The staff was professional, courteous and FUN. FIVE STARS in every category. Kelly immediately foresaw the best way to layout the feast and tables, and made all the right calls. THANK YOU KELLY!

  • Old Blue BBQ were the perfect caterers. The food was delicious and fit our venue perfectly! Many guests noted that it was the best wedding food they'd ever had :) Additionally, Old Blue BBQ was extremely helpful with preparing for the event, pulled off the evening seamlessly, and threw in wonderful extras (allowing bar to stay open later, decorating items). Highly recommend for a wedding or any event!

  • Old Blue BBQ lived up to our expectations of putting out great food for our May Wedding! Thank you so much to Kelly for being an amazing help throughout the entire process. Kelly was professional, was my coordinator that I didn't know I had!! Especially helpful with navigating a somewhat trying engagement with another vendor. Our friends and family were very impressed with the food, but more impressed with the catering staff. The crew we had were professional and ensured that my husband and I had everything we needed, made our set up perfect, and took great care of the guests. Thanks again for a great event! Highly recommend for any event!

  • We used Old Blue to cater our wedding of about 100 guests in Leesburg, VA in December and can't recommend them highly enough! If you're looking for BBQ and super customer assistance, then Old Blue definitely fits the bill. From start to finish, Kelly and her team were great to work with. They definitely are experts...provided great suggestions, including on cocktails, menu, layout, etc. They also transported our alcohol to the venue for us, which was an enormous help. Everything went smoothly the day of--including the cocktail reception, dinner, and bartending--and the food was absolutely delicious. Old Blue also ensured that everything was cleaned up so that we didn't have to worry about getting our security deposit back. Kelly was very responsive, friendly, and accommodating throughout the process. So glad we decided to work them.

  • We compared Old Blue to a number of other BBQ options for catering in the region and they stood head and shoulders above the rest. The level of professionalism, quality of food, and service was absolutely excellent. They worked with us to get the feel and decor of our event exactly how we wanted it, and the “bride share” decorations they offer was a huge plus. During the event, the staff were professional and everything worked like a well oiled machine. Also, we heard so many complements on the food. Everything was incredibly tasty. Old Blue is well worth the price and made our wedding elopement party wonderful.
