Poke-e-Jo's is all around the best- they employ the nicest people ever, and they have great food! For my wedding, we had fajitas, which were absolutely delicious. I really appreciated how much bang for our buck we got- there was plenty of food for everyone, and a ton of variety... Read More for every kind of eater. They were great about accommodating our vegetarian guests as well, and kindly put the veggies for the fajitas separate from the meat. Even though Poke-e-Jo's is pretty casual dining, they really class it up for catering. The buffet table was beautifully set, and they use nice disposable plates/cutlery. As always, the Poke-e-Jo's team went above and beyond, and they were a dream to work with. Thank you, Poke-e-Jo's, for a great wedding day meal!

My wife and I used Pok-E-Jo's to cater our wedding recently and could not have been happier with the level of service we received (the food was excellent too!). Jason was extremely helpful every step of the way. He set up a tasting, helped us put together the menu,... Read More accommodated some special requests, and guided us in the right direction in setting up the day-of. Honestly he almost acted as a wedding planner. The actual day of the wedding was very hands off - we didn't have to worry about a thing. The food was excellent and served right on time. The bartenders were super friendly and efficient. What we were looking for in our vendors was easy to work with, reasonably priced, and someone who would take most of the work off our hands. Jason and Pok-E-Jo's nailed all three.

Pokejos was the caterer, as well as the bar service, for our daughter's wedding - THEY WERE EXCEPTIONAL in every way!

The actual wedding day was seamless, because of Jason and his wonderful lead staff person (Fernando) + 4 others. Their service and kindness was impeccable. The food was FANTASTIC!!
