    Our Daughters Wedding - 120 guests.

    We had an excellent experience working with American Barbecue. We dealt with Michelle, I believe the owner, and she was awesome. The 4 person team she sent to cater our wedding were professional and responsive. The food they provided was outstanding. They were great at clearing all our tables after everyone had eaten and even packaged up the leftovers and brought them into our home. The pricing was extremely reasonable and a great value. We would hire American Barbecue for any future catering events we host. Great job American Barbecue!

    The American BBQ's reply:

    Hi Bill,
    Thanks so much!!! We wish the newly married couple the best of everything. It was a pleasure working with you.
    Michele

    We didn't even try the food before we hired them - but we definitely weren't disappointed!

    We used The American BBQ for our 10/2/2020 wedding in our backyard in Easton, MA (which they traveled to without hesitation from Rowley!!) and we cannot say enough good things about them! Their staff was so fun and they even took photos together at our photo guest book station to commemorate the fun they had. We were in a bind at first because we had to change our plans COMPLETELY about 3 months before our date due to COVID and even during the middle of a pandemic and such short notice, they came through! We didn't try their food beforehand (which in hindsight sounds kind of crazy), but we were NOT disappointed! We got Dad's Favorite package and added some brisket and other sides and had TONS of leftovers that we packaged up and handed out to the guests that were staying at the hotel for a late night snack or to take home with them. Our friends and family are still asking us to this day where our food was from because they want to take the trip up there to have it again. Awesome job, guys!
