I was hesitant when my wedding planner suggested BEP for wedding catering, but after the tasting, my husband and I were impressed, and thought the food tasted wonderful. Heather was extremely accommodating in creating our menu, exploring all the options to fit our cost and number of guests. She even corresponded with me for a bridesmaid with severe allergies and created a special meal tailored for her so she could enjoy her meal without worry. They are an affordable option and provide a lot of service for the price. For example, their staff served our buffet food (to make sure portion sizes were correct and we did not run out of food), passed hors d'oeuvres which made cocktail hour feel extra classy, and they cut and served the cake in a timely manner. The staff was dressed professionally, with no BEP advertisements, which directed the focus to the wedding itself. They did, however, have the incorrect wedding date written down at first, but when confronted about it, they were extremely apologetic and accommodating. In all, I am so thankful we had BEP and I would definitely recommend them to any bride!!

Black Eyed Pea was the Best vendor we hired! They were AMAZING and went above and beyond in every way. I cannot even say enough, truly. Yes, they are an affordable option... but I honestly think they should be charging more.

As a wedding photographer myself, I really wanted my wedding to be beautiful. My priorities were Photography, Florals, and Decor... but I read everywhere that you should splurge and spend the most on food! So I was a little nervous when searching for an affordable caterer. When I read BEP reviews I thought this would be perfect and my wedding dinner would be okay. But it was More than okay!!! It was better than most weddings I have been to and as a wedding photographer I have had some expensive catered dinners! Everyone was raving about the food and asking who catered!

But that is not even the best part! Their pre-wedding planning process is amazing and puts you at ease. As a Bride planning the wedding by herself (from another state no less), this is priceless. The tasting was amazing, they asked for a moodboard so they could match my wedding decor and Everytime I called Heather I felt like I was her only client! I don't know how she keeps all the details so perfectly together!

They stay the whole night, they don't pack up until you do and their staff is extremely courteous, professional, and helpful. They even provide rentals like chargers, glassware, and china if needed. I cannot say enough! I am So thankful I got to work with BEP and Heather!

After being referred to Black-eyed Pea for the quality and affordability of the food and then doing a tasting of the catering menu, my now-husband and I were excited to go forward and have BEP cater our wedding. However, there turned out to be some pretty big issues with the service we received. First, when the leftover alcohol was brought back to our home, we weren't able to save any liquor because the bartenders threw away or just lost the lids to ALL the liquor bottles. Then, my father told us that when he and some other guests went to the bar to get a certain wine, the bartender told them that there was no more of it, which was completely untrue because we ended up having some leftover bottles of that wine when everything came back to the house. And lastly, we had family tell us that they were denied the option of selecting 2 entrees as smaller portions instead of just having to stick with 1 entree, when my husband and I were told by the catering representative that guests would be allowed that option. The catering representative was even shocked when we told her this happened because she said the servers were specifically trained to provide that option of combining smaller entree items. I'm sorry for such a long review, and I truly hope that others have a better experience if they choose to go with Black-eyed Pea Catering.

My daughter recently was married on June 11, 2016. Our venue had Black-Eyed Peas as a preferred vendor. After looking around I now understand why they are a "Preferred" vendor. Heather Rose was so accommodating as to times to meet, responded immediately to all email questions and requested changes. They are experts at what they do and offer financial savings tips and suggestions. Out of all the vendors involved in the wedding planning and event the only vendor I had no concerns or worries about was Black-Eye Peas. The food was great, many guests complimented not only the food but the excellent service. The staff was professional and made it all happen seamlessly. I highly recommend using Black-Eyed Peas for any all catering events. The clean up was done before I could notice it was time to start ending the evening. I truly felt at times I was working with family.
Sincerely,
Laura Merla

BEP was awesome. Heather was patient as I altered my menu multiple times. She showed up on the day of the wedding and went above and beyond to ensure my tables were set just as we had discussed and the food was situated. Guest complemented the food, too! We worked with a man in the very beginning who was also very helpful. Can't remember his name.

Heather was amazing! I had a terrible experience with a caterer before meeting Heather, and she made me feel comfortable and excited! She listened to what we wanted and was committed to sticking to our limited budget. The guests raved about the amazing food, and the staff was extremely professional and helpful. She made sure that every detail was perfect from the cocktail hour to the take home boxes for the bride and groom.

BEP just catered our daughter's wedding and we could not have been more thrilled with the food, the staff, the china and silverware and how WONDERFUL they were to work with - especially because we kept making changes and they were always so gracious and professional. We really agonized about which caterer to use and in the end we liked the rolls, mashtini bar, pot roast, chicken/waffle appetizer and pudding shots that BEP recommended to us. We were concerned because they were the least expensive of the 3 caterers we looked at and because we think of BEP as the restaurant we took our kids for an inexpensive meal when they were little... THAT WAS STUPID! They were THE BEST and we got so many compliments on the food and the service! I seriously cannot say enough good things about BEP and I would hire them again in a second! Heather Rose was so fun and really kept an eye on our budget and was so professional at the event! We absolutely loved working with her! Bottom line, there is no reason to look anywhere else for a caterer - just call Heather and hire BEP - you will be like us... so very glad that we did!

BEP was FANTASTIC! I cannot begin to tell how many compliments I received on all the food. They were more than accommodating to change things as our timeline got closer. Huge variety of things to choose from. We even had a blast doing our taste testing! Very professional service too. My guests did not have to worry about a thing besides enjoying their dinner. The Pot Roast is the best ever! And Chicken and Waffle Bites!

I have nothing but good things to say about BEP. Heather and her team were great to work with. I changed my menu a few times however I felt they were very flexible and patient with us. My family and friends are still commenting on how good the food was. My husband and I were able to have a free tasting with Heather at Arlington office. That was very helpful in making our decision. The prices were affordable, especially compared to some other venues we reached out to. Also, I loved how they coordinated the food set up with our wedding colors and theme. I didn't have to worry about the food or drinks at all that night. They flowed smoothly with our schedule. They also packed a to go plate for groom and bride. We enjoyed eating leftovers while recapping our wedding the next day. I would recommend them to others in a heartbeat. Great Work BEP team.
