Catering for 50 in Washington suburbs --

PeggyD | Apr 10, 2008 05:06 AM

I am having 50 people (mixed ages, some family, some friends) to celebrate a special occasion in my family. We are renting a moonbounce for the kids, stocking a great bar, ordered a decorated cake already, but I still can't decide on the catering -- has anyone used either GUAPO's Mexican or Maggianno's Italian for such a purpose. This is definitely NOT a fancy, smancy bash, but I want the food to be good (and reliable!!). Guapos brings a grill and does fajitas with all the trimmings, and provides some added manpower to set up a buffet, etc. Maggiannos is a good standard restaurant for quantity-served basic italian fare, but they cook the food and drop it off. I am concerned that the quality may not last if we have to reheat spaghetti to keep it warm on a buffet table for a crowd. They have great chicken and veal dishes, but again, nothing keeps food warm like a hot grill in the backyard. Anybody used either of these places???
