TESTIMONIALS

Thank you for the absolutely amazing wedding food. It totally blew all of the guests away. Everyone is still raving about the food and they all say it was the best they've had. And we totally agree. Our mouths still water when we eat it in our dreams! If we ever had another catered event - we'd call you hands down.

Excellent job on Friday! There were sooo many comments and great feedback! Everyone seemed to love it and were impressed by the professionalism that you and your staff have! We had a great time! Thank you sooo very much! And as a side note, those that had the left overs enjoyed those as well! :-) I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know who is having a big bbq event in the future!

This note is a bit overdue, but I wanted to say thank you for the wonderful service you provided for our wedding.  The food was extraordinary and I was so impressed by the friendliness and hard work of your staff.  You really have a great team!

 

I've attached a photo for you that our photographer took of the roast pig in case it might be useful to you.

 

Best of luck in your future events and competitions - I definitely know who to call if I ever need catering  for another event!

I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help this summer.  You were a pleasure to work with! I spoke with some of the walkers on Saturday evening that were raving about the BBQ lunch, so thank you! I wish you all the best for the rest of the summer and hope to work with you again!

Thank you all very much for our fantastic Wedding Dinner! Everyone present enjoyed the delicious barbeque. I had many complements and some even said this was the best wedding dinner they ever had!

 

 I really did appreciate the service staff. They helped to serve, and clear the dishes afterwards. They worked quickly and efficiently in a very crowded room. They were courteous helpful and I wanted you to know that they did a great job!

 

 I will not hesitate to recommend your services to others. Would you please send me some business cards so that I may pass along your information?

 

 Andrea had an idea about a "Pig Roast" for her wedding, and I must admit at first I did not see her vision but I am very glad to have listened to her and chosen you. This was without doubt the best Pulled Pork sandwich I ever had!!

 

- Patti White

 

 

Just wanted to tell you how much the staff enjoyed your BBQ. The pulled pork was awesome and the baked beans were the best we have ever had! Love to know what you put on your coleslaw as it was light and delicious (I might be able to make that at least, ha, ha).

 

I will forward your name on to some other schools as you would be an excellent option for lunch. I am sure there will be many more Surrey pro-d opportunities to cater in the future.

Many thanks to you nand your Smoke & Bones BBQ crew, for making Matt and Zarah's wedding so extra-special. All the guests were raving about the food which was fabulous, and although we were looking forward to leftovers, people kept going back for seconds until the whole lot was gone! Several of our out of town guests were asking if you would consider going to the Okanogan for a special event? We will be recommending Smoke & Bones to all our friends.

How I wish I had a plate of leftover BBQ this morning!!  The food at my sister's wedding yesterday was the definite highlight for many people.  All the guests were raving about the delicious authentic BBQ, and I also heard many comments on the salads too.  That cornbread was so yummy!  And between the pulled pork, ribs and chicken, it's pretty tough to pick a favourite.  They were all amazing.  Oh yeah, can't forget those awesome baked beans too.

Thanks again to you and your wife and crew for doing such a fantastic job.  You certainly made a special day that much better.

"Smoke and Bones catered the Georgia Straight's annual staff barbecue this June, and staff members were happy with the mounds of pulled pork and sticky barbecued chicken."

We can't thank you enough for catering our wedding this weekend.  The crew was well-prepared, professional, flexible and very friendly.  We are so happy that we took your advice and went with the BBQ'd pig, as it was OUTSTANDING!  Our initial concerns that the sight of a pig might not be suitable for a wedding were immediately quelled when we saw the gorgeous and refined presentation, complemented with the pit beans, tasteful salads and other sides.  We will definitely recommend Smoke and Bones to anybody looking to have their event catered in a tasteful, unique way.

 

Thank you again for making our wedding so special!

 

PS- we will likely be getting in touch with you soon to likely cater some of our upcoming rugby and field hockey dinners, and the partners at Amelia's law firm were very impressed, too!

I wanted to thank you guys so much for an AWESOME presentation during the wedding and an AMAZING dinner!  Everyone was impressed with the huge smoker BBQ parked on our driveway during our outdoor wedding and then even more impressed later on when they tasted the food.  More than a few guests commented that the ribs were the best EVER.  All the food was flavorful and delicious with a distinct smoky taste.  The beans were incredible and I personally loved the strawberry/pecan salad and cornbread.  You and your staff were polite as well as on-time and precise with the menu items as well as very accommodating with the location and the layout.  I cannot thank you enough for helping to make our wedding one special day to remember!  If I ever need a caterer for an event in the future, be sure that I will call you!

 

- Misti and John Parker!  (hahahah I almost wrote Misti Hurst)

 

 

A huge thanks from both Kacey and I.  Everybody loved the food, so much so it seems to be the first topic of conversation that STILL comes up when I run into guests who were there.  We are getting asked a lot about you, so I forward people to your website (I'm sure that's fine with you).  We're still recovering (mentally and financially) from the wedding, so that's why it's taken this long to pass along our gratitude.  If you need us to write up a letter of recommendation or anything like that, we glady will.  We haven't got our pictures back from our photographer yet, but we'd love to be able to share some of the BBQ pics with you... if they're nice enough, perhaps they'd work on your website.

 

Again, thank you for being so well prepared.  We both think that your love of BBQ, the "passion for pork" so to speak, really is what made the food so wonderful.  Thank you for approaching it, at least through our eyes, like not just another job.  You probably wouldn't believe how many people thought that it was the best wedding food they've ever had - perhaps the setting and the timing helped, but it's nice to know that the food you provided will be remembered, and selfishly, that they'll remember the food from our wedding more than a lot of them even remembered their own (we had people say that, too).

Thank-you again for the incredible food that you served at my daughters wedding on Saturday. People were still talking about it at the gift opening the next day. Also a huge thanks to your wife and the girls for providing such a good service, that I could relax and enjoy the wedding. Almost makes me wish I had another child so I could have a reason for another BBQ. Thank-fully I will think of another excuse in the future.

 

P.S. - We won't mind if you give out our phone number to people, and we can rave to them in person, how great it was.

A huge thanks to you and the girls for the amazing BBQ at our wedding. The buffet was very impressive to look at, and even more enjoyable to eat! Although of course the ribs, chicken and pulled pork were prize-winning fantastic, the baked beans, cornbread, coleslaw and salads were also beautifully presented, imaginative, and delicious--definitely not your typical BBQ.

 

The mouthwatering southern BBQ dinner made the wonderful day even better. People could not stop talking about how good the food was, and I think everyone had seconds and probably also thirds!! The BBQ was definitely the highlight of the day for many guests who were probably expecting traditional wedding food. What a way to make our wedding memorable! I had two huge plates, and loads of the Carolina-style vinegar sauce over everything. Luckily, I still fit into the wedding dress.

 

Your crew's professional yet relaxed attitude was great for our outdoor wedding. We were aiming for a "casually elegant" theme, and the combination of the "laid-back" food with stunning presentation and friendly/attentive service fit the bill perfectly. All of you worked so hard, but it's obvious that you enjoy what you do -- because you do it so well.

Awesome, awesome event.....thank you and your crew for helping to make our first annual (?) staff appreciation picnic a complete success.  Thanks to Julia, Jessica (and you of course) for a totally professional presentation and delivery of our food.  I have had many many compliments and have given your website address out to Terasen Gas, Worksafe BC, Richmond School Board and Molson Breweries.  Hopefully something will pan out from those queries.

Again Justin, thank you so much for sharing your southern BBQ style with us.  You will definitely be considered (first in line) for future events, both personal as well as corporate !!

Thanks again for the delicious BBQ you made for our company picnic.  Everyone was amazed at how good it was, and I have never seen so much food get eaten!!  Big Thanks for making sure there was enough food for everyone…hopefully you will be able to squeeze us in next year.  The smoked chicken was moist and delicious, and the pulled pork and beef brisket were out of this world.  My only regret is that we didn’t add the ribs to the menu.  To anyone who has never tried Southern BBQ , be prepared to fall in love.  This is the most delicious food on the planet!!

Just wanted to thank you for the outstanding bar-b-que dinner you provided to wrap up our Truck Rodeo event out at the Pitt Meadows Airport. The drivers are still talking about the great ribs, pulled pork, chicken and beans. Our guest judges from down south raved about getting "real" bar-b-que up here.

 

We were looking to make this a special event and your bar-b-que rig, with the scent of wood smoke and good food being cooked with care onsite, went a long way to making this event a standout! I'd be happy to recommend Smoke and Bones to future customers for your accommodating service, great sense of presentation, and most importantly the fabulous food.

We just want to thank you and your crew for providing a wonderful spread of food for our annual Meet & Greet evening. The food was hot, fresh, prepared on time and delicious! People are still raving about it and asking if you are coming next year.

 

You managed to get 170 hungry people served in a very efficient manner and there was something for everyone on the menu. Well done!
