“Food ok, catering has a loooong way to go”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Our company catered bagged lunches with them. The food arrived in 3 separate batches, about 2 hours late! We had people who had to leave for the day who never got lunch because it came so late. When it finally arrived, the sandwiches were barely lukewarm. Not impressed with the BBQ sauce-it was ok at best. Don't need to eat here again.
