Catered lunch for office and client. Full range of BBQ and all the sauces. Everyone was happy and full. The mac and cheese stole the show. I can not wait to bring my family!

The family tried Gideon's and thought the food was good. Great service, friendly, and a good selection of BBQ. We ordered ribs, turkey, and kids mac-and-cheese. I would go back again
