    I've been eating at CarterQue since they first opened as a little hole in the wall on Main Street. When we decided on BBQ for our wedding and I learned that they are now catering I knew exactly who I wanted! Colleen was amazing, working with us to make sure we got exactly what we wanted for our wedding night. Very reasonably priced. The staff for the wedding was amazing, not only the buffet staff, but the bartenders that they provided as well. They made my guests feel at home and were very personable. Everyone loved the food!! Which you don't hear very much at weddings!!

    Delicious and professional

    The food was delicious and the service was fantastic and prompt. I made so many changes and they stuck with me through all of them! The prices were reasonable as well. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and everyone!

    Great Food and Experience

    CarterQue was excellent, all-around, for our event, and we have nothing but glowing things to say about Colleen and the team. From the tasting, to the final check-in, to the day-of, the CarterQue team were professional, organized, and flexible, and even jumped in to put out little issues that occurred with other vendors on our day of. The staff were friendly to our guests and took very good care of us.

    Most importantly, the food was excellent. We had multiple people come back to comment on how good the barbecue was (and especially the Que Balls). We even had a vendor remark that the pulled pork was the best food he had ever had at a wedding. Hands down recommend this team--they were so great.

    Great Service!

    Carterque was one of my first vendors to hire for my wedding at Dulanys Overlook. Colleen was always quick to respond and was able to explain all the new protocols for Covid-19 and catering really well. She put me at ease many times after our conversations! The food was great that day and my guests really enjoyed it! She also gave me and my husband to go boxes after the wedding which came in handy! I would highly recommend!

    Look no further than here

    Colleen is a doll! She is extremely helpful and quick to respond to any questions or changes. I have been going to CarterQue since they opened their store front in Mt. Airy, so it was a no brainer to ask them to be our caterer. Prices are incredibly reasonable for a large gathering and the food is fantastic. Colleen and her staff are very professional. They helped us clean up at the end of the night which was amazing. You won’t be disappointed and neither will your guests!

    Excellent, just excellent.

    Carterque has excellent food that is reasonably priced. They are great to work with and were very flexible, especially during COVID, which was greatly appreciated. They worked with us to change our menu when we cancelled our 200-person wedding and had a 25-person wedding instead (due to COVID). We would definitely cater with Carterque in the future, and we recommend them to anyone looking for delicious food for a wedding!

    10/10 Would Recommend

    We hired CarterQue to cater our wedding and could not have been more pleased! Colleen and her team were professional, friendly, and kind during the entire process. The food was excellent - we got so many compliments. When the pandemic hit and we had to postpone our May wedding until October, Colleen worked with us. She was always prompt in her communications, answered all of our questions, and made suggestions for us to consider as well. You can tell she’s experienced at this and it was so nice to have someone so competent and organized working behind the scenes for us. On our wedding day, her team was phenomenal. CarterQue had COVID rules in place and we were so happy with everything they did in order to help keep everyone safe. Not to mention, this place is a great value for the quality of food you are getting. I would not hesitate to recommend them for your wedding!

    Highly Recommend

    My husband and I used Carterque for our wedding this past August after enjoying their food and eating at their restaurant for years! We were very pleased with the food as well as the service our their team, and also hired bartenders through them for the bar. We really liked that we could provide our own plates, napkins, flatware, cups and alcohol and mixers for the bar - which helped save money and allowed us to make everything more personalized! We got so many compliments on the food from our guests, and really enjoyed getting to bring all the leftovers home to freeze and keep enjoying for a while!

    Will not leave you stressing

    Colleen with carterque is a professional! She responded quickly to emails and offered so much support in regards to wedding planning that went above and beyond catering. The day of i did not have to worry about a thing! They did not come to me with any questions on the wedding day because they had it down! They came in, did their job, and it was wonderful! The food was all wrapped up and put in the fridge that i could pick up the next day. The food was awesome as well! I highly recommend them :)

    10/10 would have cater again!

    Absolutely wonderful. They came at 1 like they said they would, to set up the cocktail hour. We had a Catholic Wedding Mass that started at 2 PM, so they had ample time to get everything set up and the selections they had that we chose were loved by all of our guests. Also, the staff on-site kept things moving and helped all our guests get their food in a timely fashion! They even helped cut our cake for us, and of course, CarterQue always has amazing barbecue food. I have 4 engaged friends and all of them asked at the end about the food! Also, it's very helpful that CarterQue has a partnership with a company that provides linens and dishes, so they showed up with everything ready, came in, worked their butts off, and really helped us have a great reception. Thanks, CarterQue!

    Awesome Caterer

    Carterque was awesome and glad we switched to them weeks prior to our wedding. Their food was absolutely delicious and on top of that, very affordable. Cheaper than what we were going to go with prior that did not include bar tending and trash service. We found at end of the night a congratulations card to my bride and I. Customer service was superb.

    Easiest catering decision!

    We used CarterQue for our wedding catering services and they have been nothing short of phenomenal from start to finish. Colleen and Rob were our main point of contact and they had the entire day running seamlessly. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how great the food was, but what everyone including myself, guests and parents of bride and groom also made a point to talk about was how impressive the service was. I loved having a wedding meal that wasn’t your typical plain chicken or salmon. For those who may be wondering, we had the garden salad, pulled pork, beef brisket, Mac and cheese, red skin mashed potatoes, cornbread and dinner rolls- it was all amazing and it’s fairly priced as well! 100% would recommend these great folks over and over again.

    Great food, great people, AMAZING Wedding!

    Carterque did a great job with our wedding on 4/27/19. They were professional, kind and accommodating throughout the planning process and made all of our requests a happen. They were instrumental in the setup at the venue and the dinner area looked amazing! The food itself was delicious and guests really enjoyed it! I can’t get enough of their Mac & Cheese and the pulled pork! The staff was very professional and helpful day of as well. I can’t thank Colleen and everyone with Carterque enough for making our wedding a great day! - M&B

    Awesome Food!

    We chose CarterQue for our wedding because it’s one of our favorite local BBQ places to go to! Colleen, who’s in charge of the catering, was a pleasure to work with! When we first did our tasting with her, she went over every menu detail with us. She helped us to plan out our appetizers and buffet menu. Colleen created a “day of” schedule for us to make sure everything went smoothly, which took a lot of pressure off of us! She helped us to plan out every detail to make sure that the food and bar were all set on our wedding day.

    On our wedding day, Colleen and her crew made sure that we received appetizers at our table, they made our dinner plates for us, and made sure we had drinks. They kept the tables clean and the drinks filled all night. At the end of the night, they packaged up our leftovers and helped us clean up. CarterQue brought enough food for all of our guests to get full portions of all the meats and sides that we chose. We still had enough food left over for a week after!

    We used Carterque for our wedding this past weekend and everyone LOVED it. We already loved the food but it was great to see it go over so well with our picky guests. The only complaint is that someone mentioned they had run out of mac and cheese. I'm not sure if they had brought another tray and just didn't reset yet or what the situation was, but we didn't ACTUALLY run out so it worked out fine. They gave everyone huge piles of food, the food was hot and fresh, and for our budget we got so many different options. The staff were professional and accommodating.

    We loved Carterque for our wedding. My husband and I met at a BBQ restaurant and we knew we needed to have some bomb BBQ. Colleen was amazing to work with and made everything so easy. Their food was delicious and flavorful! Their BBQ meatballs with their signature black raspberry sauce was a total hit for cocktail hour! I would highly recommend Carterque!

    We had CarterQue cater our wedding two weekends ago and the food and service were fantastic. We chose them because Colleen is amazing and the food KNOCKED OUR SOCKS OFF! They provide alot of extra touches like calligraphic menus, bartenders, recommending other vendors, and helping with setup/teardown. We've had many attendees comment on how delicious the food was and many went back for seconds or thirds. Working with Colleen to decide on a menu and get all the details sorted out beforehand was great; she kept everything simple and made the whole process as stress-free as possible. The entire day-of service team were extremely helpful and friendly and did a great job, even after having to scramble to change the location of appetizers due to rain.

    We cannot say enough good things about Colleen and the CarterQue catering staff. So many compliments from our guests about the food, including 2 thumbs up for a chef. The day-of staff
    and bartender were so helpful in getting the venue set up and went above and beyond to make our special day perfect. If you've looking for great BBQ, and a catering staff that doesn't stop at serving food, look no further.

    Carterque did the food for our wedding reception. It was fantastic. Everything was delicious - especially the mashed potatoes.
    The only thing better than the food was the service. Their team did a great job and Colleen anticipated every detail to help things go so smoothly. Highly recommend carterque!

    We wanted barbecue for our wedding and CarterQue was the first and only place we went to! As soon as we tried the food- literally one bite - we knew it would be the vendor for our wedding because it was so good. Colleen was always professional and consistently kept us confident in her services; she was more on top of things then I was some times! She has a lot of wedding experience and constantly asked questions about what we wanted and knew exactly how much food to bring so we would have leftovers for the next day. Even though she couldn't be there the day of, her employees were more than prepared. They were courteous and just as professional as she was. A great memory I have was when one of my guests came up to me and said "This is the best food I have ever had at a wedding. Usually people have these fancy dinners that aren't always that great but this could not have been better." I would recommend CarterQue to provide the food and services for any wedding. It was especially great to use them because they recently partnered with a rental place and our venue required us to provide every single thing (chairs, tables, china, etc.) so Colleen organized everything exactly the way we wanted- perfect timing! It ended up being less expensive then every other rental place we had gone to. The bottom line - CarterQue food was delicious and its employees were organized, professional, and helped my husband and I have so much less stress than we would have if we went with anyone else.

    Thank you so much for your review. I was so glad that even with a little rain, the day went off well and that a good time was had by all! We hope you get a chance to stop by the restaurant and enjoy another good meal! Colleen
