  • 5 star review  Choosing a caterer can be a very long and tedious process. My husband and I looked at six vendors but went to Rocky Top first. One of our goals was to have tacos present, one of our favorite foods, at our wedding. Once we heard taco bar, we were sold. Vicky was responsive and very laid back throughout the whole process. We chose catering and alcohol from Rocky Top and could not have been happier. Our guests could not stop raving about the food! They kept going back up for more and choosing different servers so they would not know HAHA.

  • 5 star review  Rocky Top Catering provided not only delicious food for our wedding last weekend (November 10, 2018) but also the best service. Before I describe the food, I must say that Vicki Tong is by far the best customer service rep that this company could possibly have. She made the entire experience so easy. She arranged for a food tasting, was able to keep me up to speed on what I owed and what the final invoice would be (most brides get blindsided by vendors) and just allowed me to be flexible with my choices all the way up to the week of the wedding. I could not have asked for a better person to be the liaison for myself and the Rocky Top Catering company. Now...the food....AMAZING! We went with one of their steak and chicken options. I had plenty of "Foodies" at my wedding who all shared the same sentiment that this was by far the best food they've ever had at a wedding. The mac n' cheese and the potatoes we are so yummy. They cooked their green beans to perfection. The steak was so juicy and the chicken was full of flavor. I cannot ask for a better experience with a catering company. I still receive compliments from my guests about how delicious the food was. I highly recommend.

  • 5 star review  Vicki at Rocky Top is amazing. To be clear, Rocky Top as whole was an absolutely amazing partner and caterer for our wedding in April so there are many more people that deserve recognition, but it always starts with the customer service and Vicki nails it. The Rocky Top team was detailed, reliable, and flexible with our catering requests as we planned our wedding, and the day-of service was incredible! Servers were bombarded the moment they walked out the door with trays, the chicken and waffles were a HUGE hit!!! With Vicki at the forefront, Rocky Top will continue to be a top-rated caterer in Raleigh. THANK YOU to the whole Rocky Top team for nailing our wedding day and keeping a ton of northerners satisfied and stuffed ! Cheers !

  • 5 star review  Rocky Top catered BBQ our wedding. They were flexible and patient with our ever-changing plans, and were accommodating for our specific needs. I felt like they really listened to us and what we wanted, and they delivered exactly that on the day of! Everything was clean and COVID-safe. Many of our guests complimented the food. The shrimp & grits shooters, mini chicken & waffles, and brisket sliders were BOMB.
