So let me tell you about Shane and his company. This is the BEST caterer I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. He took my concerns, likes, ideas, interests, theme of my wedding, and his amazing love of food and created something spectacular that I don’t think could have been done by ANYONE else! He did a lot of small things that made it even better! Like the surprise of a 4 leaf clover in a locket in my bouquet! I was not expecting that and I love it :) it’s probably one of my favorite mementos from my wedding now <3 He also created a pine nut from something that I tried when I went to Seattle, just from the description! And it was SO GOOD! I’m really sad I didn’t get to eat more of the wonderful food :) I took some home to eat later lol I really truly highly recommend Shane and his company to anyone who is asking because he did catering, floral, and bartending!

Shane & his team provided an excellent catered evening for us, we were thrilled to have them be a part of our special evening! The food was fantastic & the team was very professional from start to finish. I highly recommend Shane & Big Blue Q for any & all catering needs!

Big Blue Q catered my husband's surprise 50th birthday party and it was amazing! The ribs, sausages, and crabcakes were delicious. Every detail was wonderful and taken care of. Shane was incredibly helpful and all my guests loved him!

I've hired the Big Blue Q to cater our annual lake front party for the last 2 years and they've done an outstanding job both times! Their ribs are to die for as well as the smoked salmon! Shane is great to work with, very flexible and not only is the food amazing, but their customer service is top notch! The Big Blue Q will be our annual Go-To caterer for years to come! He can cook anything and it comes out great. We have hired several caterers over the years and non can compare with Big Blue Q of Tahoe

I contacted Shane at Big Blue Q to cater a 50 person event. I found him online while searching for local BBQ outfits. He promptly offered up the best customer service, options, and recommendations for the party. We decided to have the food prepped off site and brought in with heat trays. Shane nailed it. On time, on target and helpful throughout the entire process. The food was fantastic. We optioned for St Louis style ribs, Chicken, Smoked Brisket, Beans, Coleslaw, and Cornbread. The brisket was a stunner. The entire party could not get enough and wanted more. The coleslaw and brisket combo was the "go-to" plate. Not to downplay the chicken and ribs at all. Those two items were hits as well. Party goers were seen walking around with chicken legs and ribs clutched in their hands feeding their faces. Shane offered up a very traditional BBQ meal at a very sensible price. Customer service through the roof and a very nice approach to putting on an event. I would recommend hiring the Big Blue Q for any catered event. A local outfit with nothing but great things to say about them. I attempted to contact others in the area prior to Shane. I was given the cold shoulder, calls were not returned, and customer service was lacking. Do yourself a favor and go straight to the Big Blue Q. They won't let you down!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our pricing is not complicated, but certain ingredients, especially locally grown ingredients are subject to growing conditions. We've experienced a 25% increase on pork this year. Sometimes it's difficult for clients to understand increases.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    i start by getting a general idea of what they are looking for. Most times they've never thought of certain food items that i suggest, but end up going with our ideas.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I try. Honestly, I could attend a culinary school year round and never learn it all. We dine out regularly and travel, learning as much as we can. It's hard work, but someone has to do it:-) I try to read on new food trends and experiment in the kitchen as often as I can.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
