The Wildlife Disease Association contracted with Dead End BBQ Catering for our Bluegrass and Auction event at Ijams nature center on July 30th, 2013. Terry Turner and his staff were great to work with and the food was excellent. The pulled pork and brisket were delicious as were all the side dishes and desert (banana pudding pie). Everyone was friendly and professional and many of our conference attendees, which including people from 22 countries and all 50 states, remarked as to how much they enjoyed it. Our members are pretty environmentally conscious so the use of compostable serving ware and cutlery was very appreciated. We highly recommend Dead End BBQ.

Fabulous only begins to describe the catering by Dead End Bar B Q at our daughter's wedding reception on July 27! From the beginning, our daughter said the reception HAD to be catered by Dead End and they were fantastic! The catering managers were so professional in the planning stages. The event staff were polite, efficient, and kept the food flowing. And most important, all of our guests raved about the delicious food! Many thanks to Dead End Bar-B-Q for helping to make our daughter's wedding day perfect!!

I have to say, Dead End Barbecue went above and beyond in catering our daughter's wedding. Everything they said they would do, they actually did even though they were shorted a prep table! The food was excellent and all the guests raved how it was the best food of all the weddings they had attended. They are very dependable and super nice. They even left a thank you note on the bride and groom's table wishing them much happiness Just a special touch that meant a lot to me and my daughter on this special day.
