Thanks to PoK-e-Jo's for the incredible service provided at our wedding this past weekend. David and I got so many compliments on the food and service. We wanted our guests to get a taste of Texas, and you all went above and beyond with your services. You're staff did an amazing job to make sure the process went smoothly. They were so kind to make sure David and I got food and drinks as we were busy greeting everyone. Even working with you all prior to the wedding went so smoothly, which made wedding planning feel less stressful. You all are professional, affordable, and offer great food and service. We are so thankful to work with you all on our wedding day. Again, thank you so much for being a part of our special day!

Awesome service, great set-up, and super helpful. The price is amazing, and the food was talked about all night.
All around great!Reviewed on 1/22/2015 Heather R
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 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!
Ah-mazing! Cara was so easy to work with and so patient with all my emails and phone calls. The food was excellent and a lot of our guests who are from the Austin area were all interested in where it was from! The bartender rocked it and was so much fun. It was a great time and they made it so stress free! They brought everything from food, tables and linens to our cake plates and togo boxes! You will not regret hiring this team! :)
If I could give them an eleven I would! The food was great, we had a guest say the Brazos salad was amazing and another say the sausage was the best they had ever had. The staff was easy to work with and the great value just made us feel like savvy planners. If you want barbecue at your wedding look no further!
Cara, and the team at Pok-E-Jo’s, were a great choice for our wedding day. We were looking for a caterer who could provide the whole gauntlet of services we wanted, and they were right there for everything from bar service, to dinner, to cake service, and more. Cara was great at answering any and all questions we had from the moment we first contacted her, setting up a tasting at the closest restaurant of theirs to our home before the big day, and following up throughout the time up to our wedding itself. Every service we were looking for their team was able to provide, and we went in knowing that we were going to have food that was great, and that perfect mix between simple and elegant that we were looking for. On our wedding day, the catering team showed up promptly, prepared, and dressed professionally. We rented real china dishes and glassware from them, and everything was laid out beautifully in the reception area for our guests to enjoy. The cocktail hour we had went off without a hitch (according to all reports, as we were taking photos through the lot of it), and when we actually made it into the reception hall itself, the presentation was incredible. Our plates were amply stocked, and with everything perfectly to our liking. Our guests (again from all accounts we’ve received since) had food that was both good and in good quantity. Everyone loved the place settings, and the mac and cheese in particular was a surprise hit! Pok-E-Jo’s provided everything we were looking for in a caterer, with both full service across the big day’s events, and a surprising number of options for cocktail appetizers along with dinner considering they are popularly known as a BBQ restaurant. From simple comfort food like mac and cheese, to classy (and apparently well enjoyed as they were all gone) caprese skewers for appetizers, there was something for everyone at our wedding to enjoy! And as an added bonus we can relive the big day in part whenever we like just by stopping by one of their restaurants and ordering our favorites again!
Everything was amazing!!! The food, the service (bar, cake cutting, set up/flip, clean up) was all top notch! Jason helped us with any questions we had and made it effortless for me. Thank you so much for everything!!
Cara and her team were great! Everyone at my wedding was raving about the creamed corn and could not get enough of the food. They gave us portion sizes that were perfect. They were extremely professional and the bar service was great as well. I was able to get everything I wanted and more without having to compromise. I can't say enough great things about Cara and her team. They helped in every aspect of my wedding, from moving the chairs to serving the cake. I couldn't have asked for a better group to help us out!
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, 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.
We used Pok-E-Jos for catering and wedding coordinating and they did a fantastic job. Cara and Jason were AMAZING to work with. Cara is so sweet and on the ball with everything. We got so many compliments on the food and honestly, it was the best dinner we've ever had. The prime rib and the turkey were amazing. I would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone.
You can't go wrong picking Pok-e-Jo's as your caterer! All of our guests loved the food and went back multiple times for more! Everyone was very professional and the set up looked great! I highly recommend them!
PokeJos recently catered our wedding in downtown Austin. We got so many compliments on how delicious the food was, and the servers were incredibly kind and helpful throughout the evening. Their buffet presentation is amazingly classy, especially for a low key bbq joint, and the portions are absolutely huge. No one left hungry or dissatisfied! If you're looking for a bbq caterer for your reception, look no further!
We hired Pok-e-Jo's to cater our wedding very last minute when another caterer fell through! We worked with Jason, and he was so helpful in making our fajita buffet happen, even so close to our wedding. The food was delicious, and the service and staff were great! So many of our guests told us how wonderful the food was and asked if we could hire them again! The s'mores bar was also a hit and was perfect for our s'mores favors!
We used Pok-e-Jo's for our wedding on 11/18/16 and they did an amazing job!! From our first contact with Jason we knew we would be in good hands. From our tasting to the actual day, the food was delicious! The staff did a great job serving our food, cutting our cake, setting up everything in a beautiful way and the bartender Joe always made sure glasses were full (especially mine!). My guests went on and on about how the food was delicious, and this came from some avid BBQ eaters!! The smores and popcorn were awesome additions that really tied in our outdoor rustic theme!! Thank you!!!
They were great! Cara and her team from the beginning were super helpful and quick to respond with different quotes and options. The food was even better than the tasting! We had it served family style and there was plenty of food. We had chicken, brisket and ribs and a salad and beans and potato salad. All were so delicious! We would choose them again and again!
We used Poke-e-Jo's as our wedding caterer. We chose the delivery drop off option and it saved us about $800. We were very satisfied with Jason who coordinated everything for us including our tasting. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an affordable caterer with delicious food!
My husband and I recently got married and had Pok-e-jo's do our catering and I am SO glad we went with them! We got soooooooo many compliments on the food!!! Everything went seamlessly and they were so great and easy to work with and so responsive! We had nothing to worry about the day of and all of the food was great! Our out of town visitors LOVED the barbecue as did all of our local guests! Do yourself a favor and book this place ASAP!
Pok-e-Jo's was wonderful to work with! They were very accommodating and always available. They took care of everything the day of the wedding, including picking up linens, set-up, site flip, and clean-up. The staff at the event were very professional. Not to mention everyone loved the food!
Pokejos was a joy to work with - they made the whole process of planning our wedding so much easier! Plus the food was fantastic!
Thanks to Pok-e-Joe's for helping make our wedding fantastic! We got so many comments about how great the food was on both events they catered. The process was very smooth from beginning to end. The staff did an amazing job. The presentations were wonderful and kept clean at all times. We appreciated that the bar staff was willing to tell guests no in order to follow our instructions. Job well done!
We used PoK-e-Jo's for our wedding and everything turned out amazing! The food was delicious as always and the team was respectful and kind. If you are searching for a food vendor for your big day, look no further as this company does a wonderful job!
Pokejos was the caterer, as well as the bar service, for our daughter's wedding - THEY WERE EXCEPTIONAL in every way! I have no words to express how INCREDIBLY AWESOME our Pokejos Point of Contact, JASON, was! He literally helped, instructed, assisted, and encouraged me for the ten months of planning! He answered every single question and concern I had. Jason was extremely reliable and responsive to my every email, phone call, and text! From the moment we met and planned early on, Jason made me feel like 'we' could do this - and we did! 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!! The bar service was smooth and quick! The staff had some transitioning to do, from outside ceremony to inside cocktail hour to outside dinner reception - and it was perfect! THANKS from the bottom of my heart to Pokejos, to their staff, to Fernando - and ESPECIALLY to Jason! I highly recommend Pokejos!
We had Poke-e-Jo's Smokehouse cater our wedding. We had compliments on how great the food was and how kind the staff was all night! The cheese blocks were a huge kit and the flavored popcorn was a yummy touch for a late night snack! Alexis was great to work with throughout the entire process. I highly recommend them for your catering needs!
Wow!! Pok-e-Jo's catered our wedding and they were amazing! The food was SO good! The perfect Texas BBQ and the guests raved about it! The staff was so friendly and did a great job taking care of everything. Working with Jason for all the planning was a breeze!
We used Pok-e-Jo's for my son's rehearsal dinner. Everything was outstanding! We served appetizers for about 30 minutes before our dinner started - chips, queso and several salsas. We served fajitas for dinner and everything was delicious and it was all presented beautifully! To top it off, when the speaking portion of our dinner was over and we dismissed our guests, I looked over to see that the food/service tables had been cleaned up and removed and I never heard a thing! They were so quiet and respectful of what was happening. I would highly recommend Pok-e=Jo's!
