Wedding and Event Catering
David and his family served up an elegant, tasty family-style dinner for the 120 guests who attended my brother's wedding in late-December. We had tri-tip, chicken, green beans, potatoes, salad and rolls -- everything was delicious and the Cowabunga crew made sure that everyone had plenty to eat. They served the food quickly and right on time. Everyone was gushing about how delicious the dinner was. David was incredibly responsive during the planning process and showed great flexibility with all of the last minute obstacles that came our way (including a last-minute change in venue just 1 month before the wedding, last-minute vegetarian meal requests, etc.) I would recommend Cowabunga catering in a heartbeat, they are a wonderful, kind, hardworking crew and the food was simply fantastic.Jan 3, 2019VerifiedCowabunga BBQ's reply
Thank you so much for your amazing review. We had an awesome time working with you. We wish your family al the best in the future and hopefully work with you again. Thank you, David and Trina Forsberg
I had Cowabunga BBQ cater my wedding this March and they did an amazing job!! Not only did all my guest say the food was delicious, but they also kept the drink station full all night and picked up all the plates and trash from my 31 tables!! And if that wasn’t enough they helped put away all the charger plates from the tables. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience, they are a family owned business and David is a Veteran so we are more than happy to support their business!! I can’t express enough how incredible of a job they did!! I highly recommend!!Mar 4, 2019VerifiedCowabunga BBQ's reply

I can't speak to the food itself because we ultimately decided on a different style of cuisine for our wedding, but I appreciate David's flexibility and responsiveness when speaking with me and answering my many questions. He has been a pleasure to work with.Mar 23, 2018Verified
