"I would recommend Buddy's Special Events to anyone who is looking for a professional, unique and fun catering experience. Steve was so nice and pleasant to work with and he really put my mind at ease for catering our graduation/birthday party. Everyone loved everything about him from the awesome food to his hot dog buggy to his easy going demeanor. Loved it!

"Steve (Buddy's) arrived on time, responded quickly to all email inquiries and provided a tasty delicious hot dog for all our guests to enjoy at our barn venue wedding! I could only highly recommend this vendor for all the hot dog lovers out there who desire a special treat for any special event."

"My wife and I hired Buddy's special events for our wedding and we could not have been happier. They showed up when they said they were going to show up, they fed all of our hungry drunk guests and everyone was thrilled. The hot dogs are top notch Chicago Style. Our guests could not stop talking about how cool it was to have a hot dog cart at the wedding. It's been over a month and we still get compliments from our guests. If you want a fun, memorable and unique experience for your guests go with Buddy's Special Events."

"My husband and I were extremely pleased with the Chicago hot dog stand that Buddy's provided at our wedding for a late night snack! It was a sure hit for both local and out of town guests. His prices were well worth the service received and we plan on using him again in the future. Extremely professional and easy to work with!"

"We had a Chicago themed birthday party this weekend and wanted food to go with it so we hired Buddy's. It was AWESOME! Steve was so easy to work with and Jim and his assistant were incredible. They arrived early and set up quickly. The hot dogs were delicious and a huge hit. All the guests loved the look of the cart and the taste of the dogs. They have all the toppings. You don't have to worry about a thing. Jim checked in with me throughout the event and then at the end they cleaned everything up. It was so easy. We used 100 dogs and were able to write a contract and pay for that amount. I wish we were having another party so I could hire them again."

"Buddy's Special Events was the perfect addition that made our baseball themed wedding extra special. Steve was a pleasure to work with and very professional. All of out 200+ guests were raving about the hot dog cart! I would use Buddy's for any event in the future. Buddy's was also VERY fairly priced."

"I contacted numerous companies about catering a late night nosh of hot dogs and polish sausages. All it took was one phone call to Buddy's and a quick conversation with Steve and we were all set. I booked him in our first conversation because his pricing per piece was the best. And he didn't charge me the outrageous fees that other companies did. Not even a charge for the drive from Deer Park to Chicago! The night of our event my husband was SO thrilled with his gift. The hot dog cart is super cute and went well with our Chicago themed wedding. I would highly recommend Buddy's to anyone looking for a special touch, worry free event. I'll be calling Steve for our new baby's first birthday. :)"

"I used Buddy's Special Events for a small fundraiser and I could not have been more pleased with the service, the food and the presentation -- the hot dog and ice cream carts with the umbrellas created just the right fun atmosphere. Steve was fantastic to work with, very accommodating on short notice with reasonable pricing. The best was that this was completely turnkey, just a few phone calls to make the arrangements and I didn't have to be involved the day of the event. Steve showed up on time and completely handled delivery, set-up and clean-up -- plus all condiments, wrappers and napkins were provided. The hot dogs received rave reviews (everyone loved the full range of Chicago-style toppings) and the Good Humor ice cream selection was perfect. I have already recommended Buddy's Special Events to a friend and I will definitely use them for future events."
