I had a hard a few communication issues during the reservation process, but overall we loved Buddy's. They allowed us to have a free tasting, and we modified the set menu to meet our needs. The day of the wedding they were timely and professional. The food was delicious and the servers were very nice. The price was awesome for the amount of food we had! I would definitely recommend buddy's!

My husband and I selected Buddy's BBQ for our catering for our reception. This was a wonderful decision! The food was great, the price was very reasonable, they met all my requests and the workers were great to work with! Following my wedding, my maid of honor also selected them for her wedding because of how great they were at mine! They were perfect for my rustic, country, outdoor wedding this summer.

Great for weddings on a budget! The food was awesome, and you definitely get your money worth. They were very accommodating, and quite flexible. They allowed multiple menu changes to be made, and did not create a hassle. They also kept my multiple drink dispensers fully stocked throughout the reception for my guests. The servers were very friendly and helpful. Pat and Jay at the catering office were beyond helpful and nice as well!

They called and kept in contact with my parents. They were helpful in planning what I wanted and were flexible. They arrived promptly to the wedding and had everyone going through the line and keeping everything organized. They did forget dinner rolls to go with the chicken, but they did cut the final cost for it.

They also did a good job in cutting our wedding cake and placing it out for people to take. I felt like they really did a tremendous job with everything.

The value for what we got was very good. They showed up on time and looked professional. If I had to criticize one thing it would be that I wish the menu would have been a little more flexible in changing items in and out. Over all I was very satisfied with our catering from Buddys.

Buddy's BBQ did a fantastic job on our wedding reception dinner. They set everything up and even came around and cleared tables off so even though it was a buffet, it felt like a seated dinner. Excellent service!

Buddys Bar-B-Q was where our rehearsal dinner was held. It was held in a building called Bearden Banquet Hall. It's an absolutely lovely room. In fact, we wanted it for our wedding reception, but it was already booked. The food at the hall was amazing. You could choose from quite a few options, but we chose the BBQ pork and the Honey Pecan chicken, which was out of this world. You get vegetables and dessert as well, plus coffee, water, and tea. It was beautifully decorated and very reasonable in price for the whole package. I recommend this for anybody's rehearsal dinner AND reception, and also for other events, because the food is to die for.

I was on a budget when planning my wedding, so this was the perfect reception location for me. Of course, I would have loved a fancy ballroom and all those expensive details, but if you can't afford much, Bearden Banquet Hall is perfect. Despite not being the most beautiful reception location, they did an excellent job at decorating and setting the mood. The price of catering is basically what you're paying for with them, and they allow you to use their event room.
