    Amazing Food!

    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!
