outer_banks_catering_Choosing The Right Caterer in the OBX: 5 Quick Tips

Make sure the caterer is very responsive from the get go

There is no room for unreliable catering. From the minute they pick up of the phone to the packing up of the last table, attentiveness matters.

Flexible Menu

It is your event. Make sure the menu can fit all the different dietary needs your guests may have.


Who are you dealing with? Make sure to ask how long they have been in the catering business. Have you sampled their cooking? Do they have  solid public reputation?

Really fresh food

This is tantamount to having a great event. Processed, preservative laden food that is of low quality has no place here. Make sure the food comes from local producers, comes fresh, and is prepared right away.

What is their specialty

Every caterer has some dishes they do better than others. Darrells 2 specializes in barbecue, seafood, and home cooking. Make sure that the caterer specializes in what you like.
