Best Catering In Boston | 54 Best Places & Our Top Favorites

One thing you’re relaxing, and the next thing you know, you’re planning a large event for hundreds of people.

Maybe it’s a social event or one of your company’s many corporate events, or maybe you got tasked with planning one of your families birthday parties, bar mitzvahs, or holiday parties.

Either way, you are now responsible for many people and tasked to deal with their personal tastes.

Some may like authentic Mexican food or Asian food. Others may be snobs about fresh ingredients, local ingredients, and beautiful presentations across all fronts. And some of your guests might have severe allergies or dietary restrictions.

What do you do? How does one accommodate all of those specific tastes and preferences, while ensuring that everyone at your event stays happy?

The answer is simple: by ordering quality food.

Here in Boston, we have tons of top-ranked and award-winning catering companies, and all of them are listed at the bottom.

But today, I’m going to talk about two of the best caterers in the greater Boston area.

Both of these full service restaurants are experienced in catering high profile events, and deliver top notch great food to customers at private events each and every day.

So the next time you need to find food for a large number of people, look no further; these two local caterers will have you covered.

Boston Burger Company

Open since 2009, Boston Burger Company is one of the best spots for catering in the Boston area.

Their executive chefs and owners have experience cooking with some of the highest quality chefs in the nation; including Guy Fieri, Michael Symon and Rachael Ray.

Here, you can expect over the top burgers, sandwiches, appetizers, and more, leaving everyone zt your special event full and happy as can be.

And BBC has catered everything. Office events. Concession stands at a casual event. Small groups. On site cooking. Weddings. Everything.

What’s cool about Boston Burger Company is they also have a company food truck for events. If you wanted a unique modern twist to your common catering experience, I’d highly recommend taking a look at their food truck. This would be a great option for a birthday party, graduation celebration, or retirement party.

They have four different catering services to choose from, but perhaps the most notable is The Burger Bar.

Here, everyone has the option to build their own burger, however they like, using a multitude of insane toppings that Boston Burger Company provides. It’s always a crowd hit among every gathering, and somes at a really reasonable price per person.

Aside from burger offerings, Boston Burger Company also has an insane list of appetizers, including mini mac-ancini bites, homemade fried pickles, wings, and their signature “pig pile,” which is made up of homemade potato chips topped with pulled pork, bacon, sausage, coleslaw, pickles, cheddar-Jack cheese, BBQ sauce, and homemade ranch.

So if you’re looking for the perfect place with unbelievable American fare to service your next special occasion, look no further: BBC is where it’s at.

What people are saying about BBC catering:

 “Burger Bar with fries and salad for 60 people: Big hit in our office and absolutely delish! So many toppings and sauces to choose from and was able to order chicken and veggie burgers as an alternative; also very accomodating for folks with allergies and sent signage for every dish, side, condiment and sauce so everyone knew what the ingredients were. would totally order this again!” -Tina

I became the office hero with the burger bar! Everyone loved everything about it, especially that they could all build their own. The leftovers were attacked the next day too. I’ve been asked by multiple people to order from Boston Burger Company again & I will. 🙂” -Amy

Mortadella Head

Wouldn’t you know, we cater too!

And I promise you I’m not biased in saying that we’re the best.

I actually got the opportunity to try Mortadella Head’s catering at a party, long before I worked here, and let me tell you—I was blown away.

Everything was just so fresh, and reminded me of those classic Italian flavors I grew up around.

Maybe part of the reasoning behind that is because we make most of what we can in house. When it comes to authentic Italian food, we have really high standards. From our sauce, to our dough, to our chicken wings, to our mozzarella sticks you can be assured that everything that’s served here is as fresh as you can get.

When it comes to catering with Mortadella Head, we know how to get it done. Our catering team is hard at work almost every single day catering all types of events over the Boston area.

We’ve been lucky enough to work with companies like the Boston Bruins, Google, Delta Airlines, Budweiser, M.I.T, and the David Ortiz Children’s Fund.

We also are one of the few Boston restaurants that offer holiday catering as well. Which means, that’s right, you can actually take a break from cooking this Thanksgiving! (who would’ve thought?)

We’re able to get you fresh trays of baked ziti, eggplant parmesan, lasagna, and other Italian staples for you and the whole family to enjoy.
