Catering by Mopsie is truly the only way to go when choosing a caterer. For the price and value, you can’t beat it. They are responsive and accommodating and very thorough. Amy is amazing too and I also felt like I had a immediate response to any changes or updates to our menu. The food is great and they have so many options to accommodate every budget and food selection. They were attentive during my wedding, and bussing tables so very efficiently. I never felt like there was a mess any where. On top of that, the team is so friendly and nice. You cannot go wrong with booking Mopsie! The barbecue and macaroni and cheese were huge hits at our wedding!
Let me start this review by saying that we used Mopsie's to cater our wedding to feed 250 guests two weeks ago. The event itself went almost without a hitch, so I can recommend them, but with a few warnings to make your experience less stressful:
1) We requested the "butler service", and there is obviously an extra fee for that, but the item appears on the invoice as "Service Fee 18%". If you're like me, seeing "service fee" on an invoice makes me think "useless upcharge". I recommend that the owner change the labeling of that charge to keep customers from having the negative reaction I had AND from having to take time to call and get an explanation. Amy said I was the "first to give that feedback", but I've got to believe that is not the case.
2) I wanted the leftover food in order to feed the myriad family staying in town in the days following the wedding. In one conversation Amy said they give the leftover food to a "shelter", and another email says they throw it out. But apparently they have "buffet captains" that count how many plates are served and they give you "to go" plates for those attendees who did not show. But it's a BUFFET. I recommended to Amy that she pass along to the owner that a less confusing method would be to tell me from the beginning that it will take, say, "70 pounds of brisket to feed your 250 guests a buffet" and let me add/subtract pounds of meat as I see fit. If I order too little then it's on me. But if I order too much, they box that up and give it to me. Seems clear and less confusing, but I spent about 30 minutes on the phone having this explained to me and I still question it as a business model, but oh well. When it was all said and done, we had about 40 no-shows and I came home with about that much food.
3) Mopsie's adds a 3% credit card fee.
4) Save your money and skip the ice cream bar, which was not kept cold or wiped clean.
The information provided in this review is inaccurate and not composed by the actual contract signer and person who entered into the business transaction with our company, so please understand as you are reading this that it is not an accurate reflection of our very clear and noted specifications as listed on all contracts.
The Butler Passing has nothing to do with the industry standard service charge of 18%. Butler Passing is merely a description of a type of service, by which our staff presents the hor's deourves on a tray for guests. The service charge is the industry standard fee that is applied to our on site team.
Regarding left over food, we dispose of any food that has been sitting out on a buffet for food safety and that is in line with our food and beverage requirements, so we would not have sent that home with this particular client or any for those reasons. We did send the amount of food home as was mutually agreed upon that was owed for the guests that didn't attend from a sealed climate controlled container.
We have very happy clients who have used the ice cream bar in the past. The only reason the ice cream would have been quick to melt is perhaps the extreme temperature of this particular day in an indoor/outdoor location. And ice cream is generally a little messy.
We do an excellent job of cleanliness on site as you can see by our outstanding reviews. We always work hard to please our clients, and in this case, I have had no direct correspondence after the event from the actual contract signer which was the bride. Please be mindful of this very important detail in reading this review.
Great food, great people, great service! Our wedding was back in May, and all our guests are still talking about how great our food was. These guys should be highly recommended for any and all events you have!
We couldn't have asked for a better caterer for our wedding. We used their bartending services as well as catering for a buffet style dinner, our guests are still raving about how wonderful everything tasted! Their services really are spot on, they have tons of options to really customize your special day or any other event. I couldn't be happier, and cannot recommend them more.
We used Catering By Mopsie, included in Brushy Creek Events all-inclusive package. The food was amazing!!!! Our wedding was 11/11/17, we ordered the chicken marsala (delicious, crowd pleaser), mashed potato bar (huge hit, people are still raving about this), Smores bar (super fun, everyone loved). The staff was awesome(especially the bartender, I'm so sorry I forgot his name) Seriously, the staff made our wedding even more fun! Amy was super polite and patient with me, I'm a bit of a procrastinator. There was one minor issue after the fact (did NOT affect the wedding AT ALL). I only mention it because Amy went so amazingly above and beyond to fix the issue that I feel utterly confident saying she will not allow your event to be anything short of perfect! Thank you all so much! We can not imagine anything else could have been better!
Mopsie's is an excellent catering company. Our non-profit organization has used them for large banquets several times and each event has had delicious food. Amy is wonderful to work with. She's very responsive to answer questions which makes my job much easier. Our latest event was for 140 guests. I highly recommend this company.
We LOVED working with Mopsie's & our guests loved their dining experience! The staff, especially Amy was so helpful and the food was incredible. We had many out of town guests, we served the bar-b-que with the spinach/strawberry salad & everyone was raving the next day about the excellent food. The out of town guests & the locals ALL LOVED the food.
Thank you Mopsie's, we would definitely use you for an event in the future.

Blew us out of the water with the food, and I mean it. I have been to SO many wedding with boring, plain, catered food that was bland and quite hard to put down. Catering by Mopsie provide TONS of options that it actually made it hard to decide which one we wanted because it all sounded so good. The chicken was cooked perfectly. The spices were simple and very tasteful. The green beans were such a night touch, in fact, we had our waiter bring us an extra plate of them. The rolls were buttery perfection. If I could go back into time, I would’ve stuffed some in my dress they were that good. The pork tenderloin was a HUGE hit! Amy has suggested this raspberry sauce and it paired perfectly. My husband's family and my family both mentioned that they were extremely impressed with the quality of food. I had the pleasure of working with Amy over the phone, she explained everything to me with all different quotes and options. She did an amazing job.
If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. 5 stars, high fives all around!
We chose Mopsie's to cater our wedding and they were incredible!!! The staff was courteous and professional and the food was amazing. They arrived early, everything was perfect and every server was smiling the whole time. Amy, our Sales Manager, was quick and responsive and made our experience leading up to the wedding pleasant and stress-free. We couldn't have picked a better caterer!
Sharing lunch at the original Salt Lick with friends, they told us they'd had the best smoked turkey ever, but couldn't remember what restaurant. When we started talking about our son & daughter-in-law's wedding, she said THAT was where they'd had excellent BBQ!
Our son had told us they were having to pay extra for a third meat since package allowed for 2 meats. Since everything was so delicious, he said they'd pay extra for all 3 meats since they could not settle on only two of the 3 choices!
We all enjoyed the meal so much that I had to say that this definitely the caterer to use! The kids had the most memorable wedding, meal, cakes, and atmosphere!
Just had to say that this was the best experience for everyone, especially with guests talking about the food 2 months after!
Simply the best choice we made for our wedding. Food was great, but quality of service and responsibility of the staff were out of this world. When it started to rain between ceremony and reception CBM staff did everything they could to make sure it goes well. What they did was way beyond the highest expectations I had from a caterer. Absolutely recommended!
We've been working with Amy at Catering by Mopsie and couldn't be happier with how easy they have made the process! My sister used Catering by Mopsie for her wedding, and after such awesome customer service and seriously yummy food, we knew we wanted to book with them as well! Highly recommend this business, they deliver great food at a great cost, and take all the stress out of meal planning.
Catering By Mopsie did such a phenomenal job at our wedding! They went above and beyond and we were extremely pleased with the service. The staff were all attentive and polite, the food was amazing and the pricing was exceptional. We HIGHLY recommend this catering service to any and all events!
The food was super delicious. We did the fajita meal and it was super delicious and guests talked about it for days after. We had a buffet line but we were served at our table separately. They prepared to go boxes of two more plates and some cake for us to take to the hotel with us after. Very easy to get in touch with. We were offered salsa, guac and queso as extra from our package however it was a little over priced so we passed on that. We did have plenty of food to feed everyone though. My one complaint is after cutting the cake they put it away super quickly and I had to ask them to cut the grooms cake because some guests hadn't had any cake yet and it was already put away. We had this shortage and then my parents told me after they had a giant portion of the bottom tier that they took home.
Other than that the food and service were excellent! I would use them again
Mopsie did such a wonderful job catering our wedding! They were a preferred vendor with our venue and the added perks were wonderful! The food was amazing and we received SO many compliments from our guests. Even days after the wedding we were still hearing about how great the food was! The catering team made sure the bride and groom were taken care of and even sent us home with all of the leftover food (we did buffet style)!. Our coordinator Amy was excellent in answering our questions and responded back to emails/phone calls promptly. The night of our wedding, Robert, was amazing and we were so pleased with how attentive he was. I highly recommend Mopsie to anyone looking for a great caterer, awesome food, and the coordinator and staff were absolutely wonderful.
Mopsie is dependable, offering great BBQ with sides, price is reasonable, and the service is great...delivery, setup, serving, and cleanup. Great people to work with. We have used them every Fall for many years. And, we are always a happy customer.
Our wedding was a huge success, and we definitely owe a large portion of those thanks to Catering by Mopsie.
The food was delicious, very well priced, and the entire Catering by Mopsie staff was a pleasure to work with. They did everything they could to stay in contact with us, keep us up to date, and make sure that we would have the wedding we wanted. They threw in almost a thousand dollars worth of extras which really helped us have the wedding we wanted (Even if it would have normally been outside of our budget).
Every step of the way, Catering by Mopsie did everything they could to ensure that we would be happy, before, during, and after our wedding.
Make no mistake, there is no better combination of professionalism and value than Catering by Mopsie. Thank you so much for making our day so special.
Catering by Mopsie is AMAZING! Amy's responsiveness is unmatched, and the menu options are great. If you're looking for awesome food and phenomenal service then look no further!
I cannot thank Catering by Mopsie enough for the overall positive experience they provided! I noticed them at the Austin Bridal Extravaganza and from the start Amy was super responsive in setting up our tasting day, which the food is fantastic! My wedding guest kept raving about the BBQ and Pork Loin option we opted for :) Amy attended my final walk through and was extremely organized and even helped me with visualizing how everything would flow the day of. I had a miscount on my party by 50 people the last week of her already organizing her team for my day and alothough not an ideal situation she made the last minute changes and was happy to accommodate! The day of started 30 minutes late and even with that change the butlers we're ready for appetizers, the food was moist, the bartenders were making the people happy, the s'mores bar was a plus and the free coffee bar was a plus for the guest! I could not be more happy with Catering By Mopsie and would recommend them to all!!
Catering by Mopsie did an OUTSTANDING job at our wedding on 10/14/16! Everyone was talking about how amazing the food was, and we loved it so much! Amy responds so fast, and is so helpful with questions, and thorough with her answers! They make sure you have PLENTY of food for everyone to enjoy even bringing extra, then if you or your guests don't want to take it with you they donate the food. The BEST catering company ever. I HIGHLY recommend them and will be planning to use them EVERY TIME I need any catering done!! Thank y'all so much for making my wedding a dream come true!!
Catering by Mopsie was amazing for our wedding! Being in the wedding business myself I have attended over a 1000 weddings, and we knew that we had to have them for our own wedding. We got so many compliments on our appetizers, and our bbq entrees.
We used Catering by Mopsie for our wedding in October. They had a very short time to setup and get ready for our reception/dinner but they pulled everything together brilliantly!! Food was great and service was exceptional.
This was a sit down dinner for 100 women. I enjoyed the team of Candace, Susie, Moses, and Bruce. They were very professional and very attentive. Got there on time, and left the kitchen spotless. They made the evening EXTRA special!
Excellent catering company with great service and food or our wedding! We had many, many compliments on the food and service. We served BBQ brisket, sausage, and turkey with standard bbq sides as we wanted a Texas-themed wedding: Mopsied nailed it! They provided all the food and bar service (we provided the actual alcohol) which we highly recommend. Don't cut corners and try to find the lowest cost caterer- you'll regret it. Use Mopsie's to relax and enjoy your special event.
I found Catering by Mopsie at a vendor open house. The owner was serving up brisket and we were impressed with how delicious it was, so we gave them our information and took a brochure. I got a call a few days later as a follow-up and YES we wanted to book! Booking was easy and we were able to customize everything to get what we wanted. The food was AMAZING. We did the BBQ Buffet and our guests were raving about how delicious it was and asking who did it! We also did our bartending through Mopsie and that went really smoothly as well. Overall very pleased with the service and the food :)
