    Amazing food, amazing folks!

    AJ and his crew catered a wedding that I coordinated recently. The food was AMAZING but there's many more good things to say about Black Bear BBQ so keep reading! Some of the guests were vegan and some had Celiac's but AJ's spread offered something tasty for EVERYONE - which can be difficult for BBQ. He satisfied all of the couple's requests and more. He and his team overcame weather and layout challenges effortlessly and with professionalism. Definitely recommend these guys!

    Absolutely Amazing

    What an amazing experience with Black Bear Bbq catering services. Deciding on this restaurant for my wedding day, was one of the best decisions I have made. We requested an appetizer/finger food Buffett, and wow, they delivered! The spread was beautiful and accommodating for my fiancé, a meat eater, me, a vegetarian, and my guests who were vegan and gluten free. Sweet potato biscuits, curry butternut squash soup, bbq sliders, they had it all, and it was all so delicious! They responded to my emails promptly and were great at communicating with me about the plan. I definitely recommend working with this company for any party you have!

    Best decision ever.

    We could not have asked for a better experience than working with AJ and the Black Bear BBQ Team.

    My wife and I wanted something slightly different than the normal wedding cuisine. Our theme was Chic County Fair. We didn’t exactly know what that would like like at the time either, but a few conversations with AJ and we had the food all figured out. Our menu included mini corndogs, funnel cakes, smash sliders and grilled pineapples for hors d’oeuvres followed by the brisket (the best that anyone has had), jerk chicken and salmon for the mains. All cooked to perfection.

    If you’re planning a wedding or event, you’re probably stressing about the food as food is quite literally the thing most people will walk away remembering, so we really can’t put a value on how helpful AJ and the team were at making this portion of the wedding so easy. Speaking of value, the prices were extremely fair. AJ doesn’t have price gouging in his bones, very much wants to please and will speak honestly about the pricing of the ingredients and what his service costs. No surprises. On the day of your event there is nothing more welcomed than compliments about your food and just about everyone took the time to rave about Black Bear BBQ.

    If we ever plan another event of some sort, Black Bear BBQ is getting a call. Until then, we’ll be hoping for an invite to a wedding where Black Bear is catering.

    Best of luck in your planning!

    Jason & Katie

Owners

Co owners Aj & Autumn have been catering together since 2011. This is our first photo together at out first event with our vending kitchen. We have came a long way in last 11 years. We are new to "The Knot" but not to weddings and events. We love to us this picture to always remind us where we started. We now are on our second restaurant, own a food truck and have an ever growing catering company. We hope to transition into building more catering gigs , eventually providing our own outdoor event space. We usually respond within 24 hours but weekends and holidays might hinder that. Thank you.
