Working with Chris and his team was the best decision we made for our wedding! From the moment we met with Chris for our tasting, he was responsive, knowledgeable, flexible, and fun to work with - and the food was amazing! Our guests went out of their way both on our wedding day and after to compliment the food and presentation. The brisket and cornbread stole the show! Chris was also very patient with us as we went through revisions of our menu - he is a true professional and I felt like I was in great hands. He has a lot of experience and talked us through everything. He helped us cultivate the perfect event, from the rehearsal dinner on. Also, Chris' team set up all of our table decorations and dessert buffet and they did an incredible job. When we walked into our reception area for the first time, we were blown away by how perfect it looked. We were blown away again when the food was served - the food was cooked perfectly, the presentation was lovely, and everything tasted incredible. I highly, highly recommend Chris and his team. We could not have asked for anything better!

We are thrilled with everything about how our wedding food was - from the inquiry process, to the tasting, to the day of, everything was great. So many people were raving about the food, particularly the garlic mashed potatoes and carne asada. I have dreams about that carne asada. Also their green beans with bacon are fantastic, plus they bring the grills and cook the meat on-site so it smells aweseme too. It's all top notch! I thought it was the best wedding food I'd ever had but then I knew I was biased - except we had lots of other people say the same thing!! So not only was the food fantastic, but they provide ALL the rentals too - tables, chairs, linens, dinnerware, even the tent, and that was a HUGE help. It really simplified the process AND saved us money. We found out we had to get a tent permit because of our venue location and Chris took care of that really annoying process, including a visit from the fire marshal, so that we didn't have to. Chris was our point of contact all throughout the process and was managing everything on-site the day of. We couldn't have been happier with his laid back yet professional and on-top-of-things demeanor. The food was the one thing we knew would be a huge hit and it was! Highly recommended.

We hired Smokin Willy to cater our wedding and it was a huge hit! Chris was awesome to work with and really goes above and beyond to meet your expectations. Everyone was raving about how good the food was. Everyone loved the smoker and he and his staff were just amazing. I would highly recommend their services.

After searching the Shenandoah Valley for a good BBQ that came with a reliable catering service we were lucky enough to find Chris Scharrer and his Smokin Willy team. From the moment we met Chris at the tasting until the night of the event we felt we were in capable hands. We opted for family style meal and took Chris' suggestions on food selection. Our guests were piling up plates for seconds and thirds. Chris was a planner and a problem solver as well as the chef. Our wedding was a huge success and Smokin Willly played an enormous role in that success.

Wow. Amazing. That's what we Have to say about Chris Scharrer and smokin Willy's. Wow. Our wedding was entirely outdoors with no on site facilities, so our caterer had to be completely self sufficient. This is what smokin willy's does best and they are AWESOME at it. Chris instilled a great deal of confidence in us from the first day we met, he then delivered on every single promise he made, rolled with a number of last minute changes, and did it all with a smile. A month out when our venue seemed to be dropping the ball on our rentals for tent, chairs, and tables, Chris took all of that on, no problem. His food is awesome, and we are picky. It is all grilled on site-- we had carne asade (exquisite) grilled mesquite chicken (amazing), and grilled portobello mushrooms for the vegetarians--every single person raved about the food. His staff is highly professional--every single one of them was great And Chris himself was on site leading them the day of our wedding. In addition to dinner his team served our cake, hors d'oevres and drinks--even though we brought all our own drinks and alcohol to the wedding. Purchasing our own drinks was great for us and helped us save a lot of money. The thing that most struck me about Chris is his professionalism and integrity. All the way around a pleasure to do business with smokin willy's. If you hire smokin willy you will not worry about a single detail of your reception garaunteed. Thanks Chris!!!!!

Chris is the man !! He is so patient and understanding of the stresses of a wedding. There was no issue/situation/request that he could not find an answer for. Chris met me for the walk thru and gave me all the time I needed, providing helpful suggestions and input . We did not have nor need a planner with Chris' assistance. He knew his venue and how to make the reception flow smoothly.
All of his equipment and supplies were delivered and in place the day before the wedding and he was available to us the entire day thru until the end of the evening. His crew set up not only the reception area but also set up the ceremony space. They served the food (lots of compliments !) on time and hot. they cut and served the cake for us and then stayed until everything was cleaned and the venue returned to its original shape. I truly would have been lost without Chris and his crew.
We highly recommend that you try Smokin Willy for dinner and for your event catering needs. Ask for Chris---he will make your event a success ! Have to add, Chris is just a really nice person to deal with also. He is easy to talk to and does not try and "nickel and dime" you over every little thing. Much appreciated !

AMAZING! The food was absolutely delicious; we went with a buffet of pulled pork, grilled mesquite chicken, brisket, as well as some great sides (their cornbread is out of this world good!) I love that everything was prepared there; the food tasted fresh, was just the right temperature - I heard that many of our guests went back for seconds and thirds! Chris was great to work with - very responsive and flexible. I 100% recommend this company if you are looking for great food and excellent service!

Holy cow! If you are looking for a great catering experience, contact Chris and his crew at Smokin' Willy. From the time we started the planning, through the event and into the cleanup I can honestly say I have never worked with a more professional staff. Chris first listened to all that we thought we wanted. Chris helped guide us to a great plan with few minor changes we had not considered. Chris then met us at our venue to walk through all of the details. Finally, Chris and his team showed up to manage a wedding reception that everyone loved. Do not hesitate to ask questions and for guidance - you will benefit well from their experience. All of his staff was courteous, friendly, clean cut and helpful when needed. We had outstanding appetizers to start and a mix of BBQ pork, beef brisket and chicken (grilled on site!) along with an array of sides and other goodies for dinner (the corn bread was to die for). When it was all done, his crew returned our venue to its original state and it looked like we had never been there. I cannot recommend these folks enough - thank you Chris for a job well done and loved by everyone. There was one comment from a guest which sticks out in my mind... "Where did you find these guys? They are genius!"
