C-Bo's BBQ did a great job with the food at our company picnic. The food was delicious and the service provided by LaToya and Charles and their entire team was excellent. We would definitely use them for our next event and recommend them to friends.

Stephanie and her team did an amazing job with the catering at our wedding. Before the date even came we had great experiences tasting and working out the logistics of the event with them. We couldn't have asked for a better start to finish experience with them. They got there early and got to work right away setting up, and even helped us when it was coming down to the wire to set up a few things that weren't their responsibility. She knows how to run the show confidently and made sure we were happy at all times. They really helped out in more ways than just food, and were super supportive and adaptive when weather and schedules didn't go as planned. The table presentation was perfect, and we were able to pick from numerous options through them on settings and linens. On top of all that the important stuff, the food, was amazing! Specifically we had BBQ options with sides to match. It was all amazing, and everyone enjoyed it, especially the brisket. The jalapeno poppers were the bomb! The bartending service provided through them was great also. After the wedding we can say confidently they are the best value out there, and they were an absolute perfect choice for our wedding. Thank you guys!!!

AUTHENTIC & ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!! The oxtails were fabulous, tender, and perfectly seasoned. Beans and rice hit the spot, even the steamed cabbage had great flavor. You are given generous portions. I've tried a variety of Carmenia's dishes, and have enjoyed every single one. I highly recommend, Musulyn Home Cooking & Catering....BON APPETIT!!!

Chef Soul it was an honor to meet you and discuss beneficial health solutions. At first I was a little skeptical due to the one review on your profile page and being offered a cooking video of the meal prepared. Chef Soul would love to admit to you I stand corrected would love for you to be able to do many more of my catered events and being a guru/mentor for helping me revitalize my health. My smile is brighter my love for myself is a lot higher. My self-esteem for my vision of my future career and passion I have to thank you for the positive energy offered from conversation with you Chef. Thank you for being able to understand my point of view for the love I had for foods that were bringing me pain. Thank you for showing me the before and after process of your love for food as well. The transition you made to stay on healthy track with your meals is awesome. I thank you for the care package you mailed to me everything was intact in the box and nothing was missing. It was everything you described I love the art you added in the process as well. My favorite has to be the cashew milk none of the same additives found in milk but the health benefits I always imagined in my cereal. You’re an amazing soul chef and Happy person. Pray in time your garden and farm can be able to feed people all over the world. HAPPINESS RULES

The folks at Baby Boy Catering (Richard and Vicky) were fantastic !! From our very first conversation, Richard put at ease and made us feel very confident that they would take care of the whole catered meal experience -- and they did !! The food was wonderful. We had grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, French fries and onion rings with some of Richard's special sides- of special note were the mac and cheese, baked beans and home made chili. They arrived on time, were great to work with and cleaned everything up when they left. We highly recommend Baby Boy Catering !!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How much should catering cost per person?

Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

  • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
  • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
  • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
  • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
  • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
