Beans BBQ catered a pre-wedding celebration for my son and future daughter-in-law for 55 people June 2017. Kristi was wonderful to deal with and answered all questions right away. The staff was professional and the food delicious along with a beautiful presentation. I highly recommend Beans BBQ and Kristi and her staff!

I’ve used Beans BBQ for two occasions and both times Kristi came through magnificently. Her food is always delicious. Always on time. Professional and easy online paying through PayPal with email confirmation. I can say they are a must use when coming to cater a gathering whether a business, wedding or party!
