Very happy with my choice of caterers this Christmas. That was the best brisket I've ever eaten, and everything else is excellent too. Only thing I would change is to have the utensils. He forgot them that we did fine.

Am known for throwing Great Parties. I threw a Surprise 60th BDay party for my hubby. Dancing, singing, but the star of the party was the BBQ. I have gotten so many calls on who catered the BBQ. When I say mouth watering, delicious….Thanks so much for adding to my Great Party……Cowabunga #1

We and our guest thought the tri-tip and chicken were great along with Mac and cheese and the potato salad the appetizers were gone quickly for this 100+ people the food and quality of service for the price made one less worry about our successful reception. Thanks Dave and crew for coming this far to help make our day great. Robert and Shelby

I'd like to start off by saying I could feel the warmth in David's voice the first time I spoke with him on the phone. This is the first time I've ever purchased something like this online without meeting in person or seeing the food firsthand. I must say I trusted my gut instinct and was right. Im grateful for all the reviews and pictures because these were also a big reason I chose David and his Cowabunga crew to cater my wedding. We chose the chicken & pulled pork for the meat along with his baked beans, macaroni & cheese, salad and rolls. Everything was delicious! Its obvious he pours his heart into the job he does! Sitting here with a million things to do after our event but wanted to take a few minutes out because I felt this review was more important. If you are on the fence about hiring this company don't be, you won't regret it i promise! Thank you David & family for being so respectful & courteous to myself my fiance and all the guests! Professionalism at its best!💚💚💚

David and Cowabunga Barbecue recently catered my wife and I's wedding for 150 people! They did a fantastic job! Many people have told us since how much they enjoyed the Mac and cheese and pulled pork and how it was the best wedding food they have ever had. David is very professional and super easy to deal with which is invaluable when you are planning a wedding and dealing with so many vendors. We used his full service package which was very reasonable for what it was and made our life very easy knowing the food was "handled" Hands down I would use cowabunga bbq again for any event or wedding. 5 stars!
