So Much Flavor

I have had their delicious food on a few occasions and they are a for sure standout in the BBQ catering space. The meats are cooked to perfection and if that wasn't enough... the sides, omg are friggen awesome!
The only thing I dislike about them is no restaurant I can go to when I have that craving!

Excellent food, excellent staff

I am a wedding coordinator and worked with the team from Cowabunga BBQ for one of my clients weddings at Valhalla Tahoe. They were amazing. The team was friendly and beyond helpful and the food was absolutely delicious. The guests all raves about the ribs, brisket, chicken, and mac & cheese. I look forward to working with them again in the future, and if you鈥檙e looking for a caterer I highly recommend you choose Cowabunga BBQ.

Amazing people and delicious food!

To say that the staff at cowabunga bbq are what you need for the perfect catering service is an understatement. Their flexibility and ability to adjust was a real winner for my husband and I's wedding reception. The food was absolutely phenomenal as they were very open and flexible to what we wanted to be served to our guests. The bbq was the obvious highlight of the show with there being pulled pork and bbq chicken that were cooked exactly how it was hoped to be. The sides were also fantastic with the green beans and bacon being my personal highlight. One thing that was also good to see that most wouldn't think about was at the end of the event, there wasn't much food left over which shows that they do an excellent job at gauging how much food is needed for events so that it doesn't feel like the guests didn't like it or that an abundance of food had gone to waste. I would happily hire them again for catering any future events that we could possibly hold in that area.
