We love Buffalo Gals! We knew several people who had Buffalo Gals cater their weddings in the last year or so, and they all gave rave reviews, so we knew we had to have them for our wedding, too. My husband and I don’t live in Colorado anymore, so we didn’t have the opportunity to taste the food before the wedding day, but it was awesome! The food was so delicious, and we were so pleasantly surprised. The staff is great, too. They know exactly how weddings work and they have all the little details figured out so that the dinner runs smoothly. (We also had them make our cupcakes and cake for dessert. They were also SO delicious and they dessert table set up was beautiful… made for great cake cutting photos ☺ )Sent on 07/31/2018

We got married at Spruce Mountain and we had Buffalo Gals cater our reception of about 110 people. The food was delicious, and we got several compliments on it, especially on the tri-tip! The servers were also very professional and kind. I would definitely use Buffalo Gals Catering again!Sent on 12/25/2018
