    This was the worst experience I have ever had with a Pizza Truck. I could not be more upset. My fiance and I wanted a laid back vibe so a Pizza Truck was right up our alley. We went down and tried Skinny Pines, the pizza was great, small in size but Jeff assured us that the pizzas would be larger if he did our catering. We emailed him with specifics, times and dates. I contacted him a couple weeks before to ask what items would be available for topping so I could make a home-made sign with specific food options if there were people with dietary restrictions and to confirm that we were scheduled for our wedding date. He took a week to respond and only after I sent another prompting email. He said, he would not know what topics would be available until the week before the event because they bought fresh from a local farmers market, which was understandable. We contacted him with a final headcount (about 80 people) and he emailed us back with the wrong time span for the wedding day. We had booked him from 5-8pm with appetizers and pizza for that time. He insisted that we had said 6-8pm. I was upset, we had people expecting food at a certain time and already had everything laid out in the timeline and on the invitations. My fiance emailed him back with a screen shot of the time he had originally agreed to (5-8pm) and he begrudgingly agreed, saying that "we must have caught him on a good day." The day comes and the pizza trucks arrives, sets up and starts serving the appetizers at 5pm. They only sent out a handful of appetizers before they started making the pizza, most guests did not even get to try the pork bites. The pizza is good, everyone is happy but around 7pm, the Pizza truck starts packing up. They then asked one of my bridesmaids for a tip before they left which I thought was pretty ballsy. They ended up leaving befor 7:30pm which broke our agreed contract and then he had the nerve to send my fiance a bill for a $150 tip. As IF!!! Do NOT RECOMMEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Skinny Pines, LLC's reply:

    Hi Emily,

    Thank you for leaving feedback on this website. I only wish I found this months ago. We will disagree for sure on the events of your wedding day and I'd like to apologize for that.

    To us leaving at 7:30, 2.5 hours after stating to make pizza. We ran out of pizza. We didn't just choose to leave early because we still had product. Was pizza and buns the only food offered for 80 guests?

    Thank you for bringing these issues to light. I'm sure they will help me have a better business and ensure prompt returns of emails. We also have emails from Joe that said we did a great job and our staff was very friendly and even promised my Team Leader to mail a tip. If you didn't like our service that day, I wish you would have spoken to my TL about it. That to my knowledge didn't happen.

    Dear potential customers; here is the truth of how we cater events:
