"The pioneer girl catered my wedding. They did a great job! It was wonderful food! They were easy to work with, and willing to work with me too have everything I needed. I just wanted to say thank you very much Nikki!"

- Darla Clark, Alexandria

"We hired Pioneer Grill to cater a private business event for 100 people. We went with a hors d’oeuvres style meal. Nikki was incredibly easy to work with. She was very knowledgeable when it came to deciding how much and what food to order and kept us within our budget. The presentation was gorgeous and the food was delicious. Attention to detail was spot on and their staff did a great job refilling as needed. We would hire them again in a heartbeat. Five out of five stars!"
