The food is painfully good. In that you'll be stuffed, unable to move and still want more. The food is cooked fresh on site to guaranty the juiciest meat. I've worked with and have been served by many catering companies and eating establishments. I know it's hard to get that 16oz T-bone to the table as fast as possible. And I also know you can't please everybody. This company has the passion and only wants to satisfy the customer. Including full refunds if your experience was less than desirable. Having the choice between fresh meat (that might cook a little longer than expected to make perfect) or a piece of re-heated shoe leather (that's been sitting in a steam table for 6 hours) I'd rather wait the extra time for perfection.

BEWARE -, RUINED OUR DAUGHTER'S RECEPTION --- WAS 2-1/2 HOURS LATE AND THEN SERVED US LEFTOVERS FROM ANOTHER WEDDING and undercooked pork.
We also read the good reviews - don't be fooled. We booked in Oct for end of July wedding, called, emailed, stayed on top of it and were promised he was ready and all was set to go. Day of wedding, he is a NO-SHOW at agreed time of 3 pm; no phone call. We finally made contact at 4:30, he said on his way, food ready to serve. At 5:15 he shows up with his cooker, does not start to serve until 6:30 pm AND THEN SERVED US LEFTOVERS FROM A PREVIOUS WEDDING; we got less than 1/4 of what we paid for in the form of leftovers and undercooked pork. Several people were sick. HE WILL PROMISE ANYTHING AND SEEMS SO NICE ---don't let him fool you - you can't depend on him. had he even called us to explain where he was, why late, and not lied about the food being ready, it would have been at least a bit more bearable, but to not even have the common courtesy to call us on this VERY IMPORTANT DAY - that is really really bad business. We kept postponing the cake cutting because of his lies, and then by the time he served us, a storm hit and the cake was never even brought out or seen by the guests, let alone cut. Of course by then half of them had left anyway and you can't blame them. You may hope he will show up but do not count on any communication from him in the event of a change or a problem.
VERY POOR BUSINESSMAN:
during this entire time - on the wedding day and days after - he NEVER CONTACTED US, DID NOT RETURN OUR PHONE CALLS AFTER THE WEDDING - we had to keep calling and pin him down and demand our money back, and he never even had the guts to call our daughter and apologize to her.

I hired Lee to cater my wedding on 7.31.2010. Our menu was roasted pig, chicken, pasta salad, pineapple rice, lemonade and iced tea. I spoke to him on the afternoon before my wedding and he told me he would be arriving at the wedding location at approximately 2:30 or 3pm to serve food between 5 and 5:30pm. Fast forward to after the ceremony, taking pictures . . . my mom rushes over and says that the caterer has not arrived. She called him at approximately 4:30pm and he assured her that all he had to do was pull up and start serving food and that he was on his way (although he was not sure at that point how to get to our wedding location and had to ask my frazzled mom for directions). Long story short, we did not end up eating dinner until between 6:30 and 7pm. We did not have pineapple rice or iced tea or lemonade. The pork was not fully cooked and 3 people on my husband's side got sick. My 94-year-old great-grandpa and 99-year-old great aunt both had to leave my wedding reception and eat elsewhere because they could not wait to eat that long. Several of my friends and family members with young children had to leave my wedding reception to eat elsewhere because their children could not wait that long to eat. It was a wedding nightmare come true for a bride. As the rain rolled in about 7pm, people were just receiving their food. About half the people I had planned to feed at my wedding reception had left at that point. If Lee would've served dinner on time, we would've been done eating and serving cake by the time the rain storm started.
I hate to say that Lee ruined my wedding reception, because after he left, I did have a great time dancing in the rain with a handful of guests that were able to stay; however, that is how I feel. Lee did NOT do what we paid him IN FULL, PRIOR TO THE EVENT to do. I am extremely disappointed and would NEVER recommend him to other brides. I spent 9 months planning my wedding and reception; Lee single-handedly ruined it within a couple of hours.

The set up was quick and easy, I din't have to do anything. Lee and his daughter were very friendly and the food was THE BEST BBQ I've had in Colorado! A very strong 5 stars all the way around.

I recently facilitated my first family reunion for 70 people in Mesa, CO. Discovered Lee's website from my home in CA, called his references, and promptly secured his services. He met all my expectations, and everyone raved about the delicious BBQ food and plenty of it! I definitely recommend Lee for cost-conscious events, and we would use him again when another opportunity arises.
