Caterer - High School Graduation Party

Any suggestions for a caterer in the Burlington area? Nothing too creative, just delicious but somewhat generic - to please the palates of the majority. I'm thinking of barbecue but am open to anything. Thanks!!!!

  1. Blue Ribbon BBQ does catering, delivers and sets up the buffet. For a little more, they provide servers to serve/replenish/clean up.

          1. This past December I was searching and searching for a caterer for a small dinner party and somehow came across South End Chef ( She was so reasonably priced that we ended up giving her a try and it was the best choice ever. She has done two events for me - the small dinner party (7 people - 5-course meal) and just recently a large party for 40-50 people with "heavy hors d'ouerves" that were enough to stuff even the most ravenous guests. Her food is incredibly good, her prices reasonable, and she is a joy to work with. I hesitate to even put this out there because I'm worried she'll get so busy I won't be able to book her, but she is worth every reasonable cent she charges (and she traveled to Canton for our party so travel to Burlington seems within her range).

            Menu for 40-50 person party:
            Assortment of Flatbreads:
            Roasted Squash, Sage, Prosciutto, Dried Cranberries

            Country Gravy Dipping Sauce
            Asian Veggie- Sprouts, Snow Peas, Carrots, Peppers and Rice
            Spicy Orange Chili Sauce
