Fantastic, Yummy, Professional
My fiance and I knew we wanted to serve BBQ at our wedding. We didn't want the typical dry chicken breast, mashed potatoes and green beans that is served so often at weddings. We wanted food that we wanted to eat and that our guests would enjoy. We quickly learned during our venue shopping that Smokin Willy was a popular choice in the Leesburg area. We actually stopped by their restaurant one afternoon after touring a venue to have lunch and to test the food out. It was delicious! We knew we wanted Smokin Willy to be our wedding caterer. We started working with Ashley on the catering team. What a joy!! She was so smart, attentive, professional, quick to respond and gave us GREAT advice. She was there with us every step of the way to help guide us through the planning process. We rented our tables, chairs and linens from the SW team. The SW team helped us navigate COVID wedding planning and worked with us when our headcount dropped from 120 to 70. Our team lead, Olivia, was such a rock star! Everything was executed flawlessly. Our guests enjoyed the food and drinks served up by the SW servers and bartenders. Our guests went back for 2nds and 3rds at the buffet!! When does that ever happen at a wedding?? We love you Smokin Willy! Thanks for making our day so special and YUMMY!Sent on 10/19/2020

Amazing food and experience!
Smokin Willy was the best choice we could have ever made! Not only was the food fantastic, but their rentals (tent, tables, chairs, etc) were great quality! They cook food on-site so it's extremely fresh! They were extremely understanding when we decided to postpone our wedding. We cannot thank them enough for the smooth transition! Ashley was easy to work with via email and phone. The event staff were all in masks and gloves and taking extra steps to ensure social distancing. My guests are still raving about the people and the food! We ordered brisket, chicken, shrimp, mashed potatoes, mixed veggies and mac & cheese.And the members of our bridal party were super excited when a staff member walked from the tent to where we were taking pictures (quite a walk!) to deliver appetizers (crab cakes, bacon wrapped scallops and caprese skewers) during cocktail hour! We got so much food for the money! Thank you for a wonderful experience!Sent on 07/21/2020

Man oh man, do I love Smokin Willy! The food was innnncredible! We had so many guests send us messages afterwards letting us know, which really makes ya feel great! And that is just the beginning of it. Let's ignore COVID for a brief moment here - their contracts are THE BEST.. they allow you to up/down the numbers of guests sooo much more flexibly than any other company we found. The tasting was so much fun, and the people are so so nice and provide fantastic service, from helping with vision and planning, to set up, service, etc. Now, fast forward to COVID, boy am I happy we worked with the sweet people of Smokin Willy! Number one, our wedding/reception got postponed, and they were so sweet to make our second date work out, even though they already had multiple events planned that day already. We are so thankful. And, on top of that, we completely changed our plan - 110 guests down to about 70, formal seated dinner was switched to just passed aps. They were so so so kind to make such drastic changes for us. The list goes on and on of how they helped make our day perfect, but I imagine people got the picture and stopped reading about 5 sentences ago :) Thank you again Smokin Willy team, you're a dream!!Sent on 09/15/2020
Smokin Willy makes the best bbq! Their chefs do a fantastic job, and cook onsite. Their staff are professionsal and hard workers. Highly recommend them for BBQ mixed with class.
Smokin Willys goes above and beyond to ensures couples and their families have an incredible wedding day. They cook all food directly on site, so it is served fresh, warm and delicious. They go the extra mile to make sure the bride and groom are happy, such as bringing them appetizers during photography and ensuring that they eat during the reception. Their staff is professional, fun loving and incredibly hard working! We simply can't say enough positive things about their outstanding team, BBQ and work ethic! Love working with them!
