Catering Suggestions? Affordable prices?

Hi all, I need catering suggestions! I am looking at Hy-Vee and Affordable Catering, but I would love to get some quotes of other low-cost catering options. My budget is only about $2000 for 150 people, and I want to get the most bang for my buck! Any suggestions or insight would be greatly appreciated!! :)

    I think some local restaurants may fit in that budget...for example, some BBQ places could work and On the Border is fairly cheap. I bet other restaurants could cater for that budget. Good Luck!

    We are using Affordable Elegance and our total was $2300 with the cake. AND they were really really good!

    We are using Cupini's and I'm almost certain you could get some great options with that budget! I'm very excited about it - the site of our first date! They have been good to work with ...

    I would also vote for BBQ but it really depends on your reception site and the formality. We are getting the full deal- BBQ dinner and all the sides, buffet style for $11pp. Try all the locals: Gates, OK Joe's. You may also want to consider pasta buffets they seem to be very affordable and well liked.

    Zarda BBQ does a great job and is very affordable and professional.

    We are using Oklahoma Joe's. Their pricing is on their website. I think we are paying $9 pp so if you went with the same package that would be $1350.

    I have been to a few weddings that used HyVee and I was always very impressed by them. And  a friend of mine just booked them for her wedding and she got a pretty good deal. I'm pretty sure you get discounts if you use them for other things (cake, floral)
    Good luck!!

    I second the vote for affordable elegance! They were amazing! I wish we could have kept them as our caterer but we had to cancel due to money issues... they charged about $9.99 a person but their pricing is very subjective depending on what you're wanting, they can be cheaper or they can be more expensive. Give them a try though, Julie is absolutely wonderful! :)
