    Amazing! Smoke Shack was incredible!

    We used Smoke Shack for our wedding and have nothing by great things to say about them. The food was SO good, I still have guests commenting on how tasty it was. Allen and his team are professional and helpful. Our day ran smoothly in large part thanks to their experience and professionalism. We didn’t have to worry about anything at all. Highly highly recommend!

    Smoke Shack Barbecue's reply:

    Thanks for the kind words Paige. What a fun group of people you had at your wedding. We're blessed to be able to work with couples like you and Mason and wish you the best in your new life together.

    Fantastic Caterer!!

    Smoke Shack was incredible for our wedding!! Honestly, my husband and I were not as focused on our food as some of our other major investments for the day (DJ / alcohol) - even though this was by far the most costly. However, that being said, I am so, so happy with their service, pricing, and quality! Allen was responsive and incredibly helpful answering questions as we began looking for our caterer. After setting up a tasting and trying his amazing options, we decided to commit. During our tasting, I came with about 30+ questions - many of which were already answered in his contract that I had already signed. Make sure you read it, as it is VERY informative! Even though it was repetitive, Allen was very patient and answered all of them. His assistant was helpful as well (D'Lina), as she also attended the tasting. Needless to say, after that we were pumped for the food! In the 7-8 months leading up to the wedding after we confirmed SSB, Allen was a wonderful consultant to what I may need outside of what his company provided (rentals, bartending - if you decide to go outside of his company, etc.). When it came to cost, SSB is quite reasonable (in terms of the wedding industry - eye roll) for the quality and quantity received. D'Lina, who attended the walk through a month before, was incredibly informative and helpful as we talked through the location and layout at the venue. She was thorough and wrote me a recap email right away on what we had discussed! On the actual day of the wedding, obviously I was consumed in getting ready for everything, but I never heard once from the caterer on questions or needs. They helped setup everything for dining, they were incredible during dinner time - the buffet line moved quickly, their staff walked around with drinks and quickly cleared tables. Everything was awesome! They were especially attentive to me and my husband throughout the evening - asking if we needed more of anything and doing their best to make us feel calm about the event. We took home the leftovers and have been sharing them with our local friends (there wasn't a ton - they did a great job on estimating the amount!), and everyone has said "that was really incredible food - especially the mac and cheese". Highly recommend SSB - almost every single thing they offer is gluten-free, which is phenomenal. SSB is the perfect catering company if you're looking for barbecue! Big shout out to Allen and D'Lina!! Thanks again!

    Allen and his team at Smoke Shack BBQ were all around excellent - they really know the business of good food and good catering service. We are grateful to have had them cater our wedding reception of 200 guests. The pig and all the sides were delicious, and it’s so unique to have a whole roast pig at your wedding - we had several compliments from our guests. Besides the food, Allen’s service staff were outstanding - they were spot on and very attentive to our guests and to the bride and groom in particular. They served appetizers and dinner food, tended to guest dinner tables and the bar, and served cake - all went smoothly. Working with Allen and his team over the several months leading up to our wedding was a great experience and it made for a smooth and enjoyable operation on our wedding day. Food is so important at a wedding - you cannot go wrong if you hire Smoke Shack BBQ!
