We got married back in October and had booked Green Acres almost a year in advance. Chris and Lacie were always helpful in their emails and phone calls and Chris was the only one of our vendors to actually call us with a plan a week before the wedding. The day of was even better! They were there on time, super polite to our guests, and what made them special and why I'll recommend them to anyone is that we had them booked until 9pm, but cake cutting was over at about 8pm -- after they cleaned up the catering, they went up to my mother and said they still were booked for another hour and to use them if we needed any help. She suggested they could help clean up the decorations, pumpkins, all that, but didn't have to if they didn't want to, but they cleaned all of that plus more! Our families barely had to do any clean up because of how thoughtful Green Acres was. Wasn't in our contract or anything, they were that helpful! The food was awesome and we got a ton of compliments about it and how they treated our guests. Loved these people and if we ever have another event, we'll definitely be using them.

We booked Green acres for our wedding caterer. We got food, the grand appetizer display, coffee, tables, chairs, linens, and glassware from them. We had a few last minute changes and Chris was very accommodating. The food was amazing! The appetizer buffet was beautiful and I wish I had had a chance to eat more of it, but what I did have was awesome. We froze our chicken and tri tip leftovers and they were still amazing when I used the leftovers for stir fry post honeymoon. The staff was very professional. Everything was just handled day of, I did not need to ask for anything. We got so many compliments on the food. I would defiantly hire them again for any event I need catering for.

We used Green Acres catering for our cocktail hour food, dinner buffet, coffee service ice rental and dish/glassware rental. The food was delicious and the service was excellent, in addition there catering prices are much more reasonable than other companies which often charge twice there price. I dealt with Lacey and Chris during the planning meetings and they were both very professional and helpful. Our wedding guests loved the food and green acres provided so many other services and rentals that we needed. It was great that we were able to get so many things with just one vendor.

We had Green Acres cater our daughter's wedding in our backyard. Lacey is wonderful to work with from planning the menu, helping you figure out the table configuration to organizing the evening events to making sure everything runs smoothly. Lacey and her staff are all very skilled and you can tell she loves her job. The food was amazing and everyone gave us so many compliments that the dinner was delicious. We highly recommend Green Acres food and catering service. Thank you Lacey !

Food can be one of the most expensive costs of any wedding, so my wife and I decided to try and focus on simplicity over decadence to keep the cost down. The natural solution for that decision was to find a way to provide bomb BBQ, and Green Acres cooked up some solid meat at the event (they brought BBQ's to the site) with a plethora of sauces that had all our guests saying "mmm mmm MMM". Not only did they successfully deliver on a mean buffet style dinner, but they also created an incredibly colorful and enticing appetizer platter that seemed to pile 3 feet high off the table (My wife and I completely missed this detail on the day of, but the photos just arrived, and they captured it well!).

Leading up to the event, Chris was very helpful, recommending a bartender crew that served our open bar (care of Costco) all night. For the customized, white label style, unpretntious wedding we put together at the Newhall Mansion, Green Acres was perfect. Their food was a perfect accent to the rolling ranch hills and rock cliffs that surrounded us. We'll definitely call them up for smaller events we throw in the future! Thank you Chris & Crew!

Green Acres Catering is amazing!! The food is wonderful! One of the best BBQ I have honestly ever had! My husband and I were so grateful that they were able to cater our wedding! The staff is very professional, and really great to work with! On our wedding day it went by so smooth not worrying about if certain things were getting done, they got it all done, served, cleaned up, and were all around positive and lovely to work with, I would recommend this vendor to anyone and everyone! You can't beat the prices, and the food is beyond great!

I was sadly disappointed in the service we received from Green Acres. While the food was excellent, the service was not. Our appetizer display was not set up when our cocktail hour started, and they didn't put out the plates we provided, instead our guests used napkins. One of my guests informed me that a fly landed in the ranch, and the staff just scooped it out with a spoon without even removing it from the buffet. About an hour before the reception ended, they started removing tablecloths from my guest tables and I had to send my new husband to tell them to put the back because it looked tacky. They had insisted I needed to pay for extra time, totaling 8 hours, but they tried to start packing up to go 6 1/2 hours in. I was really disappointed because we were really looking forward to having them cater.

Brad and the Green Acres team were awesome and the food was fantastic. They setup the tables for us and lit the candles in our luminaries. The food was great and we were able to pick up the leftovers the next day to eat at the brunch. The chicken was some of the best I've ever had! The only problem is that Brad does not like to use email which made negotiations a little more difficult for us.

I worked with Brad up until the wedding day, which is when he sent another member of his staff to handle our wedding. At first I was very annoyed, but Tracy turned out to be a Godsend. He was wonderful, professional, accomodating, and I just loved him. The food was amazing (not typical wedding food) and the appetizer display was phenomenal. Tracy Rocks!

AHMAZING BBQ~~~~ The food was EXCELLENT!!! We had bbq chicken and tri tip--and they gave out gooood proportions. The cheese bread we could have done without.

We heard amazing things about the appetizer table--how beautiful it was set up, how great the mix of cheese and fruits were...we are still hearing about how wonderful it was--too bad we didn't even get to see it... : (

The owner--Brad is kind of a jerk and woman hater, but he has been in this family run business for A LONG TIME! Although he is an a$*hole, he is good at bbquing.

He was a bit pricy for everything we got, but it was well worth it.

Also, his staff was great, but the way they presented themselves was a bit odd. One guy had a mowhawk, and the other looked like he just rolled out of bed--we actually got a few questions about that YIKES.

Another positive--is that bussing is included.

We did not use him for his rentals (linens, chairs, etc.) becuase they were cheap stuff for expensive prices.
