I booked them for my wedding with on site catering services and they were amazing. I live 9 hours away so I didn't get to taste test anything but everything we had was perfect. So many guests complimented on the food and our server. Our server ...
had a wonderful personality. He did a great job of juggling the food, clean up, and cake cutting. He checked in with me from time to time to make sure everything was to my liking and if there was anything I needed. I am also very pleased with Stacy who managed the event. Her communications were very prompt and made sure all the plans and details were very clear. I'm extremely happy we selected Dead End BBQ for my wedding

Dead End BBQ is delicious! Leah was extremely nice and easy to get a hold of. She was very knowledgeable and made it easy for us. We had a ton of compliments from our guests at how much they loved the food and how much better it was than other ...
weddings they have been too. There is a great variety of options to choose and by far the most popular item was the banana pudding. We should have gotten more, it went so fast. We did not have many leftovers, but what leftovers we did have were still great to eat. The pricing is very reasonable and there aren't any hidden fees. I have nothing negative to say. We recommend Dead End BBQ to anyone for catering and for any event!

Not only did me and my husband LOVE Dead End BBQ all of our guest did too. WE wanted something that didn't cost too much, tasted good, and could feed a bunch of people and BBQ was the best choice. We tried a few places in the area and Dead End ...
was the best and it worked out that it had the best deal too! For $11 a person we got 2 meats, 3 sides, bread, sauces, drinks (sweet tea, water, and lemonade), cups, plates and silverware. The plates, cups, and silverware were plastic and Styrofoam so I did buy my own to make it a little nicer. They come and set up, stay during the event to clean as people finish, and they clean up and pack extra food for you to take home at the end of the night. Just remember BBQ goes a long way so don't stress out about an exact head count. I did and we had a lot of leftovers. They were great to work with, great price, and even better food!
