The food was delicious and extremely reasonably priced! The owners were so easy to work with and accommodating, including helping me navigate what our guests with various dietary needs could eat! They went above and beyond to help make our guests feel cared for.

B Fabulous BBQ embodies the word fabulous in everything they do! My husband and I had B Fabulous BBQ cater our wedding in 2015 and it was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning experience. It was really important to us to find a gay friendly, strong... Read More community focused business to have cater our wedding and B Fabulous BBQ is exactly that. Billy and Deanna are two of the nicest and hardest working people we met during our wedding planning experience. They were super accommodating to all of our requests and took time to get to know us as a couple. During our wedding day, everything went so smoothly and that is all thanks to B Fabulous BBQ. I heard so many positive comments from our guests about how friendly the service was during our wedding. In addition to reliable, friendly service, the food is amazing! We got a few smoked meats with BBQ sauce and a few hot sides. The food was such a hit with guests that they were eating the left overs later that evening because they couldn’t get enough. I can’t recommend B Fabulous BBQ enough. Choosing them supports local business and you can depend on them to deliver an amazing meal for your big day!

Our wedding was a super small affair (~50 people to feed), and everything was perfect, but our family is still taking about the fried chicken, Mac and cheese corn, and veggie bowtie pasta. They were great caterers, extremely friendly, and it gave our wedding reception something... Read More extra that most people don't. I love steak, baked chicken, and roast beef as much as the next guy, but I've never had better fried chicken in my life and having it on my wedding day was the absolute best. On top of it all, we saved a ton of money on food because they charged way less than any of the other caterers that we looked at. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Delicious & Cheap!

They were the cheapest caterer we could find which worried me. Going in for our tasting I saw their little restaurant which worried me even more cuz they are just a little whole in the wall, But they are seriously the most delicious food I have ever eaten!! I wish I lived in... Read More Iowa just so I could eat there everyday! Everyone was raving about the food and going back for fourths and fifths. Plus Billy and Deana were both very nice and professional while still being totally normal approachable people. She showed up and set up and stayed and served everyone and they even gave us endorsed gifts which I don't know if thats the usual thing or not. I only had one problem with them and that was that I felt like they were using my wedding as an advertising opportunity. I had already told everyone about them and I would've given their name out to any guest who needed it but they brought along a stack of mini flyers and business cards that were then left behind for our guests to take, but what really happened was that there was more mess for us to clean up at the end of the night. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs a caterer.

B Fab was amazing to work with! They were always easy to contact and had great communication throughout the whole planning & day! They NEVER had us confused with someone else or had our order "screwed up"... as I found many vendors seem to do... Many of our guests commented... Read More how wonderful the food was at our reception! I would consider myself a "Texas brisket" connoisseur, and my fiance & I tried many different BBQ caterers throughout the Midwest when planning our wedding. B Fab is hands down the best BBQ caterer in the Midwest! They also were one of the only places to offer 3 sides, 2 meats, salad, and cornbread muffins for under $10/person! We also had guests raving about the cornbread muffins and even the hotdogs (which had actually been brought for the kids-- but the adults loved them too!) Broccoli salad and mashed potatoes were also delicious! I have eaten at B Fab in the restaurant in Huxley several times, and have never had a bad meal! Both owners even stayed & served people as they went through the line! B Fab also went above and beyond "a normal caterer" because they cut & served our wedding cake for us (which of course was brought by another vendor)! We can't say enough about how great B Fab is! Thank you B Fab for everything you did to make our wedding reception meal absolutely delicious!

Fabulous food - still talking about it til this day

We chose B Fabulous BBQ because my husband and I wanted a meal that screamed IOWA. We had friends/family visiting from Mexico, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and many other states. We couldn't have been happier. People are still talking about the food and how delicious it was and its... Read More been almost one year since our wedding. We made sure we chose 2 different kind of meats with 3 sides (choices for everyone). We also had B Fabulous do something out of the ordinary for our appetizers (Homemade Guacamole and Pico de gallo and chips/salsa) and it was a success. Again, many compliments from everyone. I will definitely have B Fabulous cater another event for me and recomment them to family and friends. Thank you B Fabulous for making our wedding day special. The service was phenomenal and the pricing was definitely in our wedding budget.

We recently celebrated 6 years in business and had a location move! We now have hundreds of weddings on our resume and we are looking forward to the honor of serving more. Our food comes from the basic desire to make people happy. What more happy occasion is there than a wedding? We take pride in the food that we make, the flavors we create, and those who enjoy it. We know that this day is one of the most important days in a person's life and we want to make the experience simple, flawless and fabulous. A couple puts a lot of trust in us and it's our priority that we never let down!
