Caterer of the Month: Tasty Catering (And They’re Sharing Recipes!)

TastyCatering Logo

March’s Caterer of the Month is Tasty Catering, one of Chicago’s favorite caterers for weddings, social events, picnics, corporate & special events is known for their delicious food and incredible service and staff. Tasty Catering has great options for outdoor weddings, including BBQ options and can accommodate groups from 25-5,000 guests.

Primary Food Focus/Style:

  • American (New), American (Traditional)
  • Tasty Catering offers five different menus to customers depending on the type of event—social, corporate (drop-off), special events, weddings and outdoor events/picnics—in addition to special holiday and seasonal menus.


After a Chicago winter (especially like this one!) more and more brides are looking to hold their wedding outside at unique venues or sometimes right in their own backyard.  We have definitely seen a trend favoring outdoor weddings with many couples opting to host a backyard barbecue-type reception.

Guests have found it exciting to get their food hot off the grill, which is our preferred style of barbecue wedding or picnic food service.  Our grilled menus offer a wide variety of options, from picnic staples like 18-hour BBQ brisket and cheeseburgers to upscale items such as flat iron steak and grilled salmon fillets.
