MSP Catering Recommendations?
Sorry if this is a little off-topic. Looking for recommendations for catering a rather informal open house/wedding reception in the summer for approximately 100 people on a restricted budget.

It might not seem that chowish, and it definitely depends on how "informal" you mean, but Famous Dave's does a terrific catering job if you're on a budget. The "catering" fee (really, just their fee for delivering the food and setting everything up for you) is $25.00 and they will do all the set-up for you and provide paper plates, napkins, etc. They only ask that you bring back their serving trays, washed, a day or two after the event. You have to do your own clean-up, though.
EDIT: I have a catering menu, about a year or two old now, but they have something called the BBQ blowout that feeds 24 people for $165. You can just multiply that by the number of people and/or supplement it with some of their other combos and a la carte items.
The BBQ blowout is: 60 chicken wings, 4 slabs St. Louis spareribs, 5 pounds of Georgia chopped pork, two dozen buns. Choice of 4 quarts: Wilbur beans, creamy coleslaw, potato salad, or drunkin' apples.
I went to a wedding that had food from Broders and it was wonderful. I recently picked up some stuff from there for work and it was delicious, although on the expensive side for a business meeting lunch.
D'Amico's also does catering, although it might be on the expensive end of things also.
never enough thyme on 42nd and Nicollet they do a great job.I'vebeen to a couple parties they did
and it was really good both times.
