Will you recommend a site for my Event?

There are many State, County and City Parks and Community Centers located throughout Florida.
We will be happy to recommend or direct you to the appropriate site for your event. These sites book fast in advance.

Who shows up for my event?

There will be a Food organizer, a Chef and one staff member, for groups up to 150, that prep and cook the foods for events. Headcount over 150 will require more cooking staff. They will arrive and prepare your food.
Unfortunately they don't have time for any tasks, other than food preparation, so make sure you order enough staff if you need other help.

What beverage services do you provide?

We can provide all non alcoholic beverages including: set-ups, garnishes, ice, and Bartending service. You provide the Alcohol.

Can I provide my own beverages?

Yes you can provide your own beverages. Actually you can save quite a bit by providing your own beverages and put the saved money towards the food selections.

What will my proposal contain?

Our Proposals itemize cost estimates per person for food and beverage. Also listed are cost estimates for cooking labor, and tax. Changes to your final guest count or any added services that are shown on your proposal may affect stated previous estimates. We only bring or provide what you request and order.

Are Gratuities included on my proposal or final bill?

A gratuity may be added to the total amount of your final bill or included in your proposal, but only at your request
Any gratuity amount is left to the discretion of the client and will go directly to our staff if paid by credit card.
Tipping the staff is a very private transaction and it is recommended it be handled between you and the staff on the day of the event

When do I need to decide on a final guest count?
What happens if that number goes up or down shortly before or the day of the event?

We require your final guest count 10 days in advance of your event. This number will be used to establish ordering quantities for food, numbers of staff, etc based on that headcount. This also allows us the time necessary to contact all involved vendors, as a courtesy to them, and to guarantee they will be able to provide all items for your event. After this final number is given, we will make every effort to accommodate increases to your final count made within three business days of your event.
We cannot lower your final count, after the food is ordered. Always order enough food for your quests. We only bring what you request, based on your headcount.

Do you require a deposit?

We require 25% of the proposed cost which is due upon booking your event.
We cannot reserve your date without a deposit.
Payment in full is due 10 days prior to the event unless other arrangements with your catering professional have been made.

Do you accept credit cards?

We accept VISA, Diners Club, Discover and MasterCard, as well as payment by cash or check.
Checks should be sent by over night methods, so tracking is in place in case of delivery errors.

Will I run out of food?
As long as your head-count is as accurate as you can make it, you should not have any problems. While we do use a very accurate computer catering program to determine food quantities, your guests will determine what is leftover, based on which item(s) they consume the most of. We can predict, through experience, what may be popular. If your event has Pig or Shrimp expect both of those items to disappear very quickly and don't expect leftovers of either, unless you order for extra.
Can I keep the leftovers?
We can't guarantee leftovers. You order and pay for one plate of food per person. We bring more food than you actually pay for in case of any unforeseen situation. Your guests will determine leftover amounts based on how many trips they make to the buffet, portion size of food placed on plate, and number of trips each guest takes to buffet. Guests will take food home to friends, neighbors and relatives without your knowledge. When your guests make it known they are going to a catered event they are besieged with requests to bring food back with them. Don't ever think your guests would never do that, but a promise is a promise and they will find many ways to discreetly accomplish their mission.
So the rule of thumb is order enough food if you want leftovers and the Crew, at your request, will pack up food that has been left on the buffet.
Do paper goods come with my order?
Yes, all of our service plans include ample Disposable goods for all of your guests. We feature quality white, 3-section plastic plates, eating and serving utensils and napkins. All buffet tables will be covered with our white catering cover (plastic), unless alternative arrangements have been made with you. if you want to upgrade and provide your own buffet items, linens, plates, forks, knives, etc., you will also be responsible for setting your own buffet and have it available for when the food is ready.

If my serve time is at 12:00 pm, what time will the staff arrive?
For Full Service and Mobile catering jobs using our mobile pit cookers, we arrive two-three hours prior to your event time to set up.
What is the difference between a Full Service (Cook and Stay)
and a Mobile catering Drop Off (Cook and Leave) event?
Our Mobile Full Service (Cook and Stay) event (1-2 hour buffet time depending on how long it takes to go through buffet).  Our Crew preps and cooks your menu and the food is then transferred from cooking area to wire racks or chafers on the buffet line for your guests to begin serving themselves. Generally takes about 30-45 minutes for guests to move through the line. Our crew stays until everyone has gone through the line once and begin packing up only their belongings, leaving any leftover foods behind. At that point their services are no longer required, and they leave, unless you have paid for them to stay longer.
A Mobile Catering Drop Off (Cook and Leave) event is the same service as above and is still cooked at your location, but our crew leaves after placing the food and disposable serving and eating utensils on your buffet tables without using our buffet wire racks or chafers. We are leaving is an option for "do it your self clients" that only want this mobile catering drop off option and need to buy inexpensive serving packages.
Can I substitute food items from your suggested menus?
Yes you can, each suggested menu comes as designated, and will allow you to mix and match.
However, some items are of higher value and will require an additional charge.
Do you supply tables?
For Full Service we can supply whatever buffet tables are needed for your event. When we leave we take the tables with us.
If I order a Pig Roast, how does the pig get cooked?
Since a whole pig can take anywhere from 15-18 hours to cook. we start cooking the pig the day prior to your event in our Smokers. The whole pig is then decorated with Banana Leaves and fruit and placed on the buffet line. Make sure you have a camera ready!
What if it rains?
It is always best to come up with a contingency plan in case of rain, especially for crowds over 75.
We can work with you to come up with a workable rain plan, tent rentals, etc...
I've noticed that your barbeque chicken is sometimes pink. Is it done?
"The layer of pink, or smoke ring, you find just under the surface of most slow-smoked meat is NOT an indication of undercooking.
When the pink runs from the outside in, as it does in barbeque, it is a result from the smoking process.
