This review is long overdue since the event was in May 2022!! I am not one for writing reviews but
Dwight and his business deserves a 5+ STAR REVIEW from my family.
SO it is very exciting when you are told that you will become 1st time grandparents. This news definitely called for a PARTY! Then the Mom to be gives you 3 specific requests for her "baby shower". 1) PARTY not themed baby shower at a beautiful location 2)Guys included 3)INCREDIBLE food is MANDATORY, the pressure WAS on! The first 2 requests were easy but the 3rd was difficult. Our family is known for throwing large parties where we do all the work but in this case I was told that it HAD TO be catered.
I searched around the Lake George area and found several possibilities and made several calls and appointments. When I first spoke to Dwight, I gave him the date that we needed to have the party but unfortunately he was booked. We had a great conversation never the less and I was very disappointed that he could not accommodate us. BUT 2 days later, he called me back and said he would find a way to make it happen. There was the 1st reason why you want to work with Big D's! THE first appointment I had scheduled was with owner Dwight at Big D's Bar-B-Cue in Hudson Falls at his home. Upon my arrival, I met Dwight who was incredibly passionate and serious about his business. He offered samples of his product and sauces. At first bite, I thought this is TOP QUALITY food. He explained process of making his food, the setup and the timing of the serving and all the options I had for creating an incredible event. He ended his presentation with a delicious Pot de Creme dessert offered in several flavors that he creates himself. I knew at that moment, Big D's BBQ was going to be the best choice for this party. I chose the exact menu of what we wanted and put a 50% deposit down. I felt the price was fair, based on the rising meat prices and knowing Dwight handled all the setup and breakdown, which meant that I could enjoy the party and not worry constantly about feeding this large group. I left making several calls to cancel the other appointments.
Dwight made another appointment with me to look at the property, which was our camp on Lake George and to discuss the location logistics for his smoker, buffet and table set up. He requires a tent over his food and gave me the name of Nicks Tents. They were also a great company to work with. They came 2 days before the event & set up leaving enough tables and chairs to accommodate the guests.
Dwight rolled in with his smoker the morning of the party on time and with additional staff to set up. They were all so professional and personable and TOTALLY took the stress out of the event while my family attended to all the other things that need to be done for this "baby shower" party. All serving tables were draped in black table cloths and food was presented in silver catering chafing dishes. All plates, utensils and napkins (wet & dry) & toothpicks were provided by Big D's. They think of everything!!
Each dish was labeled and kept warm to code to prevent problems. The menu featured Brisket, pulled pork & Chicken, coleslaw, bake beans & potato salad, mac and cheese with 4 cheese blend and an incredible jalapano cornbread. There was an assortment of his personal recipe BBQ Sauces, which the guests went crazy over and were available for purchase after the party. I had so many compliments on the quality of the food and noticed many guests going back for 2nds and 3rds. One of my major concerns was that there would be adequate amounts of food.
Dwight calculated proficiently and there was a good amount of leftovers, which my family continued to enjoy for several days later..
We had discussed the timing of the food to be presented and he again delivered with precision and gusto! His staff was so friendly and accommodating to all the guests.
They cleaned up quietly and efficiently. Leaving all the leftovers packaged and time stamped for us.
The guests continued to rave about the food and staff and asked where I found them. My family was incredible appreciative of finding this high quality caterer!!!
I am hoping for another exciting family event one day and will DEFINITELY use Big D's Bar-be-que services again.
Dwight has created a business with his amazing mobile smoker that will make any party a huge success. I strongly recommend that you consider him for large or even small events where you don't ever have to stress about the food! He was so much fun to work and I am grateful for finding Big D's...
We had Dwight and the crew back for the 3rd time for a grad party. Always great food, great service and friendly staff. 5 stars every time. The food is always perfect and these guys go above and beyond every time. Very affordable and they always are accommodating to your specific needs. Keep up the good work guys and can't wait to use you again!
Coming from a BBQ family background, I can say that this wedding had the most amazing food! Kudos on the beef brisket! Simply amazing!
5 stars for Big D and his staff. Best pricing and food in the area. Everyone at the party was completely satisfied with the food and huge selection of salads with all the fixings. Very polite and professional operation. Highly recommend the ribs. Thank you to Big D and the team.
Dwight did an amazing job not only with the food but the set up was perfect!! His crew made sure to make it a point to mingle and ask everyone how their food tasted. No complaints from anyone!! We even enjoyed the leftovers the next day!! Great guy to work with, would recommend to anyone looking for good down home BBQ!!!
If you are looking for delicious BBQ food and all the fixings,attentive customer service, and great pricing, call Big D's BBQ. Dwight and his family went above and beyond to make my son's graduation party a huge success. The food was incredible . Everyone raved that everything on the menu was outstanding. Dwight's team is extremely professional from their attire to the cloth table cloths. Due to COVID we had to make some adjustments. He took every precautionary measure to ensure everyone's safety. Everything went smoothly and everyone was able to relax and enjoy the day. I would highly recommend Big D's BBQ for any special event. Phenomenal food, experienced team of professionals and great pricing.
Our Celebration of Life for my brother was a huge success because of the Big D's Bar-b-cue. They were so professional....on time....and immaculate in their presentation. The food was a 10....the BEST barbecue you will ever have....can't wait to use them again !!!!!!!
So glad we catered with Big D’s!! More than enough delicious food, professional presentation, everything we needed and more!! Wish I had another event coming up just to have them come back!

Big D's catered our family reunion it was great. Returned all phone calls fast and was on time, food was great and lots of it. vary professional, made sure everyone was happy and full, cleaned up before they left. I would recommend Big D's to any one thinking about doing it themselves. saved lots of time shopping, cocking and cleaning up. The price was more than fare.
