We knew we wanted to have Uncle Bub’s as our caterer long before we had our initial meeting based on the recommendations we received from our venue and the reviews that we had read about their service. We knew we had made the right choice once we had our first meeting with Mark... Read More and especially after we had our tasting! Mark and his staff were incredible throughout the whole planning process! Ashley answered endless questions that I had and put my mind at ease about so many different details. Mark met me at the venue for a final walk through and to pick out linens and discuss the layout for the day of the wedding. He assured me that everything would be taken care of and I so appreciated his attention to detail. On the day of the wedding, everything went off without a hitch thanks to the professionalism and experience of his staff. My husband and I were waited on hand and foot, something that was not expected at all and such a pleasant surprise! Our guests are still raving about the food (especially the pot roast, which is the BEST) and we had quite a few “foodies” in attendance at our reception. Overall we could not have been more thrilled with the service provided by Mark and his staff- they are unbeatable! (Married 10/8/16)

Excellent! Excellent!! Excellent!! Uncle Bub's was great from the minute I booked with them until the end of my wedding day. Ashley was quick to respond to any email inquiries I sent her about the wedding and she was very easy to work with. My event captain the day of the... Read More event also set up everything beautifully. The food was nothing but delicious! My guests kept complimenting on what a welcome change this was from typical wedding food. Many guests went back for seconds and thirds, and we still had leftover trays of food to take home, which was a plus for us since we were too tired to cook the day after the wedding. The mac and cheese and pulled pork were my particular favorites, so flavorful and delicious!

When we saw Uncle Bubs was a preferred caterer at our venue we knew that's the route we would go. We had their food at a friends wedding and loved it. We met with Mark. He was very nice and got you all the info you needed to make an informed decision. Once we booked with them we... Read More worked with Marie & Ashley who were both great and very responsive. The day of the wedding their staff did a great job on setup and all the little details. Our guests were raving about the food and everyone had seconds if not more!

Food was amazing and the staff really helped out. They moved the food a little quick so those with kids kind of had to hustle or miss out on seconds but it was more due to the pace of the wedding than them. I would recommend them to anyone asking and everyone I spoke to loved... Read More the food! Working with them was lovely as well and they helped me cut cost where I could to help me as a person which was so personable of them. Truly a great company.

Uncle Bub's was one of the preferred catering vendors for our wedding venue. It was coincidental that we just happened to already have a love for Uncle Bub's! Everything from start to finish was PERFECT! The staff, setup, and food were all awesome! We had so many compliments... Read More from our guests about how much they enjoyed the food! We loved everything they did for us and are so thankful we had Jerry there as our captain - he was absolutely amazing. We had an immediate connection with the owner, Mark, and he was genuinely invested in the success of our event. He also recommended Prestige Liquors for our beverages and they were incredibly easy to work with - together they made the food/drink seamless for us! Their team, from the beginning, was instrumental and we can't thank them enough!

Best Wedding Food

Although it is not traditional wedding food, it was the best food I have had at a wedding. From the start of working with Uncle Bub's to the end of the night my experience was great. Mark was great from my initial pone call where he gave me a rough estimate of what I was looking... Read More for. He also didn't want me to break my budget on food so he was very aware of that while calculating and giving suggestions. Mark even recommended that during my "cocktail hour" to have chez mix type snacks instead of typical cocktail hour treats. He also said that I could buy that myself and bring it since it would be cheaper. When we went to try the food it was me, my husband, my parents and my in-laws all got to try the food. We got to sample everything on the menu we picked out. Mark also brought out both types of ribs for us to pick between. He wanted to make sure we loved the menu we picked out, even if that meant trying everything they made. We left the sample with left overs! That is unheard of. We also had concerns of with a buffet how we ensure not running out of food, well with Uncle Bub's that is not a concern. We went home with many left overs. The left overs were just as good. I kept getting comments on how great the food was! I also dropped off all my centerpieces and extras with Uncle Bub's the friday before the wedding. They set everything up the day of including my centerpieces just as I imagined the room to be. Marie and Mark were great. Jerry was our main contact the night of and was excellent. I was told Mark had stopped by the day of but didn't want to interrupt my fun. I think it is great the owner made an effort to stop by the day of.

Amazing Food and Service

My wife and I had a great experience working with Uncle Bub's! The food was amazing and the servers worked their butts off and were very friendly! My wife and I searched around several caterers and nobody could come close to the quality of the food and for the affordable price... Read More we paid! Mark is a great guy and he gives his all to his clients. Every time we stopped by to see Mark, he gave us his full attention and worked with us to get what we want but at a price we could afford. The best part about working with Mark is he wants to be YOUR caterer for all your events, so he's invested in providing good service at a great price anytime you hire him.

Uncle Bub's is great. Mark (the owner) is seriously one of the nicest guys you will meet. When we went for our tasting they brought out a feast! All the food was delicious and Mark sat and talked with us. We couldn't finish it all so they sent it some with us. After we... Read More decided to go with them, Marie took over and she is just great. She thought of every little thing and was really great about answering all of my many questions. On the day of the entire staff and captain were polite, friendly, and helpful. They provided great service and even helped us to pack everything up at the end of the night. And finally the food..IT IS AWESOME!! I loved the food and there was a lot of it. I highly recommenced the pulled pork, herb roasted chicken, and mac & cheese!! Uncle Bubs lets you take the leftovers home and my parents are still enjoying it. They didn't even want to share. If BBQ is what you want, then Uncle Bubs is the way to go!!!

Above and Beyond Great Service

Reviewed on 11/23/2013 Katie W

Where do I even begin because I have so many great things to say. First of all they are so professional and make you feel so well taken care of. Throughout the whole process my husband kept saying that he feels like this type of service nowadays is so hard to come by that it... Read More feels too good to be true. Let me tell you, it is true! Mark (the owner) and Marie were there through the entire process and even thought of little details we didn’t. As far as the menu, we had three meats and sides, but Mark kept saying that they can create almost anything that we wanted. They even offered to set up the table arrangements, escort cards, and guest book. I ended up having my florist do all that, but I had many meetings and email exchanges with Mark and Marie that I knew we were in such good hands. The day of my wedding I worried about and had some issues with other vendors, but never once did I worry about Uncle Bubs or had any complaints. I knew the presentation of the food at the wedding would look great, but I was so impressed when I arrived. The servers were wearing white collared shirts with black aprons. The food was served in shiny silver sternos which looked classy. Before I (the bride) began getting my food on the buffet one server came up to me and said once I am finished filling up my plate that they will carry it back to our table so I didn’t spill on my dress. That is what I mean with the service that is just above and beyond. That same server kept coming up to the bridal party table and asking us if we need anything. We even took him up on it, asking him to get us some pop. I have to mention that guests at my wedding were so impressed by their service as well. One of my friends said they were posing for a picture when the server walked by carrying two water pitchers in his hands and offered to take their picture. Very thoughtful! I strongly recommend Uncle Bubs for your wedding or any event you need catered. They definitely know how to cater an event and make you feel so at ease.

Yummy food

When we first met with Uncle Bub's I was a bit unsure...BBQ and a white wedding dress= disaster waiting to happen. BUT they have such a huge selection of food to choose from that we didn't have to get BBQ. They worked with our budget, they know and work with our reception site,... Read More and were professional and friendly. 3 weeks before the wedding, we were in constant contact (email and phone) with them. So helpful and totally put me at ease with not being able to set up the space myself with the decorations. They worked with my cousins who went to the reception site before the reception to make sure all the decorations where what I wanted. During the reception, the servers would talk to me to see if there was anything else that I needed but my husband said that he didn't even know who they were. At the end of the night, they worked with my parents to divide the rest of the leftover food up. Overall, very yummy food and I would use them again.

We chose Bub's because we love their food but from the first visit to discuss the possibility of doing our wedding we could tell they were much more than a catering service. They are very organized and detailed in the planning stages, also helped with plate ware and linens. Then...

Dealing with Mark Link was truly wonderful. Uncle Bub's took care of everything we needed, they were always quick to respond to our questions, kept our interests (AND BUDGET) in mind, and were extremely professional and welcoming. I couldn't have asked for anything better. They... Read More took care of our table linens, chairs, bar tending, and serving. All of this is nothing in comparison to how much everyone LOVED the food. Our menu was perfect and a great reflection of who we are. The guests were so complimentary of the amazing pot roast and many went back for 2nds and even 3rd helpings, but the quantity was so much that this was not a problem. I highly recommend Uncle Bub's.

Food that guests try to sneak home with them. Staff so thoughtful they anticipated everything and stayed to clean. We recommend their BBQ buffet for a fun and delicious option. And the owner Mark is wonderful to work with!

Award Winning in My Book!

Uncle Bubs was unbelievable! It was the first and ONLY place my husband and I and my parents tried. Prior to the wedding, we worked solely with Mark Link, the owner. From our first conversation on the phone to the last meeting a week before the wedding, Mark provided the most... Read More professional, friendly, and helpful service. Since my parents were helping pay for the wedding, he thought that it was important for them to be involved in the food selection and wanted them to attend the "tasting." Each time we went to the restaurant for a meeting, Mark generously provided us with food and drink. He was very organized and always responded promptly to phone calls or emails when he wasn't readily available to talk to. Mark listened to what we wanted, offered suggestions when we were unsure, and provided an amazing, mouth-watering buffet. (There was only a handful of BBQ pulled pork left...my favorite!) It was important to Mark to help us stay within our budget. There were no hidden costs and he didn't try to nickel and dime us by tacking on extra costs here and there. On the day of the wedding, Mark's sister Amy was in charge. She was just as organized and ran the entire reception smoothly. Amy and the rest of the staff did a wonderful job setting up, serving my guests, and cleaning up. The staff was very attentive to the wedding party making sure we always had what we wanted. One server even held my plate for me as I dished out my dinner! What service! I can't say enough good things about Uncle Bubs. Neither could my guests. People that were unable to attend the wedding that talked to others that did attend told me that everyone was really impressed with the food! My family, my husband, and I will be customers for life!

Very tasty and so so nice. Great Service

Awesome Barbecue!

We scheduled a tasting and the food was so excellent we didn't bother trying anyone else. The smell of bbq hits you in the face when walk in the door. They gave us full orders of everything we wanted to try. Amy was very helpful in figuring out how much food we'd need and... Read More helping us decide on the menu, and she was also very patient too. We had a casual backyard bbq planned for our reception and their grill package was perfect for it! They gave us a nice choice of meats and sides so there was something for everyone, and came out and cooked everything on a grill right there. We had the broasted chicken, angus burgers, and pulled pork. Everyone raved about how good the food was. They were very accommodating w/special requests. If only I wasn't so nervous I would've been able to enjoy the food more; I could hardly eat anything that day, lol! We are planning to go back there for our first anniversary dinner.
