Our food was absolutely wonderful and we received so many compliments & were told by several it was the best wedding food they'd ever had. I was in contact with JoAnne throughout the process of choosing our menu & the variety of details, and she was very flexible with my menu changes and worked with me to make it all come together. They even created mini-grilled cheese & tomato soup shots for our cocktail hour, which I didn't get a spare minute to taste, but everyone absolutely RAVED about them. The buffet was set up very neatly and all of the food was cooked to perfection - no dry or overdone or overcooked food in sight! The staff was extremely friendly and made sure to come to our sweetheart table to congratulate my husband and I. I would definitely recommend Have Smoke for anyone planning a wedding, as they can give you a less formal option for food (BBQ), or fancy it up with their more formal option The Crying Onion.

We had a rustic/barn wedding, and the food went well with our theme. All of the food and drinks were absolutely delicious, and we received nothing but compliments. I am a vegetarian, and my family is far from it. They were able to please everyone.

HSWT even prepped and did all cooking on site. It was fabulous!

They were extremely flexible with us. For example, they agreed to color my lemonade to match my color scheme, let my friend make the appetizers, and cut my cake (even though I didn't know to put that in the contract).

If you opt for a buffet style, they'll leave the buffet up long enough to allow everyone to enjoy seconds. Once everyone has had their fill, they'll cool down the rest of the food for you to take home.

My husband and I highly recommend this caterer.

We were very pleased with Have Smoke Will Travel. Initially they sat down with us and helped us to create a menu that was appropriate for an outdoor/indoor wedding with several vegetarians attending. They made suggestions and blended menu options for us. They were always available to answer our questions by email or by phone. The week of the wedding Joann came out early in the week to confirm their setup. On the day of the wedding everything went smoothly and on time and we received raves about their food from the plentiful, freshly made hor d'ouerves to the soooo delicious pulled pork and penne pasta with roasted vegetables.

I found Have Smoke Will Travel/The Crying Onion on this website and I was very fortunate. We were looking for someone to do a pig roast for my son's graduation and really had no references. From the first phone call with Joanne to the clean up, this company was excellent!! I suggested a tasting to calm my concerns regarding using someone brand new to me and my family, and they could not have been more accomodating. Joanne was so professional and responsive. She was extremely consultative and gave great advice. The day of the party everything ran extremely smoothly. I can not say enough about the outstanding quality of the food, the presentation and the hard working staff! Our guests went out of there way to call us the next day to compliment the food. My father, an Italian immigrant was extremely skepical about a pig roast,(not to mention his highly critical nature-especially when it comes to good food)...he was was won over and particularly loved the pork! If these folks can impress my dad, they've got to be great!!!

Have Smoke Will Travel was the perfect choice for our party at North Park. We chose to do the pig roast and it was delicious! From the appetizers to the salads to the main courses - the food was perfect! We got a lot of compliments from our guests on how good the food was.

The contact person I worked with was Joanne. She was great! She helped me with all of the planning every step of the way. There were several things I would have overlooked had I not had her guidance. Joanne was very professional and organized which I greatly appreciated. On the day of the party she knew exactly what to do and I didn't have to worry about a thing! She was very easy to get in touch with as well and prompt at returning my calls.

The staff was friendly and did a great job preparing and serving the food. The chef was excellent - he helped ensure that the dinner hour ran smoothly. He checked in with me more than once to make sure I was happy with everything. I really appreciated this.

They were a great catering company and I would use them again in the future!
