Tri-Stone Catering did a great job for us, and the owner Matthew was fantastic! He was easy to work with, professional, offered great suggestions, always prompt, and of course is an amazing chef! We hosted a Christmas dinner for 17 friends. Matthew made a multi-course meal that was prepared in our home. Everything came off without a hitch. Not only did he prepare the meal, he served it, and cleaned everything up along the way. While Matthew did the heavy lifting, we could focus on our guests and really relax and enjoy their company...amazing! We highly recommend Tri-Stone Catering & Matthew for your event and we look forward to hiring him again. Thanks Matthew!

BBQ King catered a graduation party I hosted with 2 other families, with about 120 guests. They offer quite a few menu choices up front, but they also cheerfully accommodated the additional ideas we brought to them. (They created a sweet potato bar for us, as an entree for vegetarian guests– though the carnivores enjoyed it, too.) I was a pretty high-maintenance customer, trying to coordinate for multiple families, and they were very patient and flexible. As we were planning the party, they were communicative and quick to answer our questions, and their estimate included a clear description of the items and services that were included in the price. The (cold and rainy) day of the party, they stayed nearby and kept the food replenished. The owner, Shane, was very friendly and professional; we enjoyed working with him, and everything ran smoothly. We received a lot of compliments on the food, and I enjoyed leftover BBQ all week.

    We chose Big Daddy's catering for our wedding day. We chose two main courses and three apetizers, and every bite of it was perfect. Joshua made sure we didn't have to worry about a thing on our day. Everything was great, and went smooth. Food was set up on time, warm and delicious! I would definitely choose their service again!

    With more than six months out, we had secured a restaurant, and menu, out of Denver to cater our wedding in Canon City at the Robison Mansion. Three weeks before the wedding we received a call that the restaurant was closing at the end of the week, and we would have to find someone else to cater our event. My worst wedding nightmares were coming true! BUT - my mother went down to the Kitchen Pantry and was introduced to Jodi of Classic Country Catering, who jumped right in and said that she would love to cater our wedding. She was a serious miracle in our time of need - she jumped right in and took charge in a way that eased every worry I had. From taking charge of dish rental to offering a more extended (and delicious) version of the menu we had chosen (which certainly wasn't a wedding-traditional menu), she was amazing from start to finish. She even created a most beautiful display where the food was served. I take pride in being a person who enjoys delicious and nutritious food, and Jodi and her team were amazing at providing just what we wanted. I can't even begin to count the number of guests who mentioned how delicious the food was! I would recommend her over and over again to anyone looking for a caterer in Canon City and surrounding areas. You will be lucky to have her.

    I love to make BBQ. I have a mobile setup for parties or events, or I can deliver! Let me know what you'd like. I make smoked brisket (best you'll ever have), smoked chicken (pulled), smoked pork (pulled), smoked pork spareribs, and smoked chicken salad. All meat are smoked and prepared by me. There's no prepackaged stuff. I also make the following: * Potato salad * Carrot raisin salad * Pasta salad * Smoky sweet baked beans (with or without sausage) * Macaroni and cheese * Scalloped potatoes (with or without cheese) All sides are also made by me from scratch. I mostly do small- to medium-sized parties of up to 50 people. But, with enough notice, I can handle larger parties. I don't usually serve. I deliver the food hot and ready or cold in advance with heating instructions. But, I can serve if you'd like me too. I would love to feed your party or event! If you would like me to make something you don't see here, let me know. I'll make you just about anything you want. Thanks for looking!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do you find a good caterer?

    Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

    If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

    Do you tip a wedding caterer?

    Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

    How much does wedding catering cost per person?

    Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

    How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

    Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

    Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

    What should you look for in a caterer?

    A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

    • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
    • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
    • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
    • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
    • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
    • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.
