I was impressed with the quality of food and service from our very first meeting. Not only was the food delicious, but the price was significantly less and afforded me spend more money on my cupcakes. Such a pleasure to work with them.

The good:
- Debby is super professional. One of the reasons why I chose BEP is because she actually responded to emails in a timely manner, unlike 90% of the catering industry.
- The value you get for the food can't be matched. And it's delicious
- The staff were reliable, and Debby followed through on all suggestions for the night.

The not so good:
- When I arrived all of the staff were "touring the grounds." When you are on a tight time table and you see all of the staff just walking around looking at the venue it doesn't instill confidence. They lacked direction.
- When I arrived, Debby was frazzled. All of the table cloths had been labeled to make it easy for staff to assemble, and they had been tossed to the side and everyone was confused. Staff were pulling out and putting away tables because they had no clear direction. She had 6 staff members all working in one small area rather than separating them out to help get things set up which further led to more confusion. Imagine being a bride and walking in to see your catering coordinator completely at her wits end and all of her staff standing there in confusion.
- The serving of the food was SUPER slow. This was a major problem. This problem resulted in the actual reception after dinner being late and caused us to miss out on much of our actual dance time. We didn't even get to do a last dance because the dinner service was so slow. Even my groom's mother asked why it took 50 minutes to get out their food? They had about 3 hours to prepare for the dinner service and there is no reason it should have been this slow. It really dampered the spirit of the night and is ultimately what let me to be super disappointed.

My recommendation: If you have a buffet, and not a plated meal----hire her. She is a great lady and very professional and will go out of her way to help you. If you are doing a plated dinner----steer clear----she doesn't have enough experience to make that happen yet.

The Black-Eyed Pea was the perfect choice for us! They provide so many different options to choose from that you can really make the meal what you want. It can be as fancy or as casual as you make it. The tasting we had was absolutely amazing and we were really able to get an idea of exactly what we wanted. They were so helpful and flexible that they made it so easy for us! They would be a great choice for any wedding style!

Black Eyed Pea was so wonderful, from beginning to end. Catering is obviously one of the biggest expenses in a wedding, and I was very stressed out about choosing a caterer.

But Debby totally came to me rescue! I was referred by a friend of mine who was a guest at a wedding catered by B.E.P; so I was excited to meet with them. At the tasting, we were allowed to choose as many entrees and sides as we wanted at the Ft. Collins restaurant and were served full-sized portions. All this was FREE! Debby was prompt and awesome, communicating with us by email up until our big day.

The wedding went off without a hitch. B.E.P. has VERY reasonable rates for cake cutting (flat $75, I believe) and bartending too. Debby was on-site the entire time and went above and beyond! She even assisted our venue coordinator with lighting all the sparklers for our send-off and packing up our decor. She packed us 2 servings of everything to take back to the hotel with us for later that night.

Best of all, we came in UNDER budget! Catering is not cheap by any means, but we were able to serve 100 guests an amazing meal for under $2k, including the charges for bartending and cake cutting. We chose the bacon-wrapped feta chicken and people are still talking about it!

Bottom line, I would recommend Black Eyed Pea catering to anyone, with no hesitation!!
