About Wooden Paddle

THE OVEN | Our custom-built, wood-fired eatery on wheels can roll up, set up, & light up pretty much anywhere. Powered only by locally-sourced, kiln-dried ash wood, it burns (baby, burns) at 800+ degrees.

THE FOOD | A slew of magical, wood-fired cookery that showcases flavors & textures you just can't get in a conventional oven. The heart of our menu is pizza; pizza that's hyper-fresh, uber-inspired, & likely the best you and yours will ever eat.

THE EXPERIENCE | We're on-site. So get up close & personal with our oven, & interact directly with us, the chefs. Ogle as we hand-stretch dough, sauce, cheese, & top pizzas, & of course, fast fire them. We'll leave your guests talking, long after we leave.

    We LOVE the Wooden Paddle!

    We’re super happy we hired the Wooden Paddle to cater our wedding. Along with so many other couples, our original wedding plans changed various times over from date to location to time due to COVID. But one thing remained constant – the Wooden Paddle as our caterer. We knew we had to have them cater one way or another! Celina was great to work with, super responsive and willing to work with us every step of the way to make sure our wedding went off without issue! We received SO many compliments from our wedding guests on how good the food was (guests especially RAVED about Getting’ Figgy With It). 😊 And they were extremely mindful and accommodating to our gluten free guests. We couldn’t have been happier, and we would highly recommend the Wooden Paddle to anyone looking for a super cool, fun caterer. Thanks for helping make our day so wonderful!

    HIGHLY Recommend for your event!

    Wooden Paddle prides itself on being totally unpretentious and super fun too. Which is exactly what we wanted for the food vibe at our wedding. From our very first tasting where we walked out so full, and so impressed with absolutely every option that we had zero doubt that they were who we wanted at our big day. To the back and forth over the months leading up to the wedding day - figuring out menu items, navigating COVID scenario planning. And finally to the big day actually happening. Jonathan, Celina and the entire team over at Wooden Paddle definitely delivered on amazing food, fabulous service and so much fun.
    I’m an Italian girl who will not, I mean will NOT, eat meatballs out at restaurants. I have high standards from my family ones and it’s just not worth the disappointment. But Wooden Paddle meatballs? Well, they are the only ones I will eat out! And based on the number of comments in person and on social media from our guests, I’m not alone in raving about them! And to top it all off with those amazing pizzas, in that gorgeous oven. It simply does not get any better.
    Jonathan (one of the owners) specifically was not only right in there with the crew throwing pizzas in the oven, but he went out of his way to make sure me and my husband were taking the time to eat and were doing ok.
    So, whether you’re looking for a great spot for a date night and want to swing into their storefront in Lemont, or have an event of your own you’re looking to get catered, I could not recommend Wooden Paddle more. You are truly missing out if you’re not grabbing some of their amazing food!
    🙂

    Their pizza is amazing! We sampled a few varieties from one of their remote catering locations and were blown away. The menu is eye-catching and I like their flavor combinations and whole ingredients. Definitely recommend for a fun, delicious wedding food idea to wow the guests!
