"I am writing this in reference to the Great Boars of Fire Catering Service. They have been catering several of our NWTF Banquets all around the state for many years and do an outstanding job. It does not seem to matter how large the event is or how far they have to travel, they do a great job. They always are very professional, friendly, and serve a fresh, hot meal with absolutely no complaints. I would recommend them to anyone considering them for an event no matter the size."

"Both individually and as a Local Union we have used Great Boars of Fire, on several occasions, for outings we have held as a Local Union. We have had occasions to use them for small groups under 30 as well as many large groups up to 6,000.
The Southern Illinois Building Trades has used their services on Labor Day for our large Union celebration at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds. We usually have thousands of members and their families attending. Last year, The Great Boars of Fire fed around 6000 people and from the first to the last, the food was very good.
I would recommend them to anyone. Not only is the pork delicious, but I have failed to taste anything that was not well prepared and very tasty. They also have many sides to satisfy different tastes. With the large variety of choices, I am sure you would not be disappointed at the quality, as well as the quantity of food they provide.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me personally."
Great Boars of Fire has catered meals for our tailgate events for over three years and it is my privilege to write a letter recommending their business. The food is plentiful and delicious. The menu is varied and interesting. The participants at my events speak very positively about the food and always request it for future events that I plan for our referring physicians and their staff. From our initial meeting, to the development of our menu, here is a group who listened to our ideas and needs to put on a successful event and worked with us thoughtfully. The result has been extraordinary catering with affordable pricing.
I utilize Great Boars of Fire not only for their delicious food and great service but their consistency. When planning an event for over 500 to 1000 people I don't want to worry about my food prep...and I do not worry with Great Boars of Fire. Great Boars of Fire puts my mind at ease, so I can concentrate on other areas of planning for my events. They have proven themselves to me and anyone who chooses to use their services will undoubtedly become a fan and loyal customer.
We unhesitatingly recommend the Great Boars of Fire for your catering needs.
