Hank's is amazing!

Going into wedding planning, the only food I knew I didn't want was BBQ, so I overlooked Hank's initially. I was getting so frustrated with the pricing options that I was REALLY close to just getting sandwich platters from a local deli. Then our baker, Buttercream Dreams, actually recommended Hank's - their pricing is super reasonable, especially with the crazy wedding markups, and they have more than just BBQ. We did a tasting, and it was lovely - the food was all amazing, and they sat down with us and listened to our needs. Very accommodating for allergies and diet restrictions. They have options for plated dinners, buffet, and food truck - we did the buffet! It also included a cheese and veggie platter and drink station. We used their bartender as well, though we provided the alcohol, and they were great at following the instructions for the specialty drinks my husband came up with. On the day of, they were timely, set up and broke down quickly (they were very familiar with the venue, a huge plus). The catering staff were SO nice to us - I didn't realize how important that would be but they went out of their way to be just kind human beings and that made the night even more perfect. They even made sure we got the cherry preserves on our cake slices that we wanted, and that they were on the right cake flavors! Which is a truly random request. We will definitely be stopping by their restaurant again in the future! We got so much for the price and cannot recommend them more.

Phenomenal Food, Options, and Service!

Hank's was absolutely phenomenal in every way, and we were ecstatic to get to choose a great local option! Their food is delicious, and the tasting experience was amazing. There are so many different options and tiers, so you're really able to choose a selection and pallet that suits your needs, preferences, and dietary needs. They have great cocktail hour options, whether you want a cheese & fruit platter or something more extensive and fancy. They also have bartenders you can use to either serve drinks you buy or ones they provide, depending on your need. There are options for limited-quantity vegetarian/vegan meals if only a sub-portion of your guests require that. And you can also rent plates/cutlery directly through them. And finally, they're so easy to work with and very clear about exactly what you're getting and will suggest changes based on your needs, your budget, or other factors. We knew we wanted our catering to be a highlight of the wedding, and it was!

Absolutely delicious and professional service

Hank's BBQ catered our wedding for 80 people in a barn venue and they were incredible. The food was amazing and we and our guests were stuffed. We had whiskey BBQ chicken, pulled pork, loaded baked potato salad (a must), mac and cheese, rolls, and salad and there are BBQ portobello mushrooms by the pan for vegetarians. We were very impressed with the professionalism of the catering staff the day of the wedding (servers to clear, manage, the buffet, and a for-hire bartender). Sabrina, the catering manager, was very easy to work with.

It was very affordable for 80 people. BUDGET HACK: they include place settings, cups, and dessert settings FOR FREE and an option is bamboo was very sturdy for the mountain of BBQ your guests are about to eat and looked great in photos. This is a steal of a deal!
