They are amazing!

We had such an amazing experience with using Carterque for our wedding, we constantly get comments about how good our weddings food was! The staff was so friendly and attentive too! I would 100% recommend them to anyone looking for great barbecue!

Very professional and great food

Colleen and CarterQue are an excellent catering company and restaurant. Colleen was very responsive and willing to explain all of their options. She even did a great virtual presentation of their services with pictures. We did a tasting at their restaurant, and they were very welcoming and allowed us to bring our 2 young kids. The food was delicious and lots of choices, and CarterQue offers very reasonable prices for the high quality of food and service. We ultimately decided to go with a different style of food for our wedding but CarterQue was easily the best barbecue caterer we could find in the DMV and we would definitely recommend them for barbecue catering or just for a good meal at their restaurant.
