Funeral Catering

If you have lost a loved one, the last thing you want to think about is funeral catering. Providing food and beverages for guests at the memorial service or celebration of life is low on your list of priorities. But at Zachary’s BBQ, providing you with delicious worry-free food and drinks to help comfort your heart and soul is high on our list.

Our professional and discreet staff know just what it takes to provide catering for funerals in a dignified, sensitive, and efficient manner. Our approach to funeral catering services relieves you and your family from the burden. It allows you to focus on grieving for the one you lost.

Our funeral catering services are streamlined to your needs, too. Whether you want buffet catering after the funeral or a sit-down meal, we can help. We can match the experience to your traditions and preferences. We can help you with menu planning, table settings, final clean-up, and whatever input you want to provide. Or, if you are looking for a set-it-and-forget-it turnkey catering solution, we can do that too.

At Zachary’s BBQ, we’re here for any occasion. It doesn’t matter to us if you are celebrating a joyous occasion or saying your goodbyes to the one you held most dear. We understand that food and beverages are often the cornerstones of these events. Breaking bread together has long been associated with burial rituals and funeral-related events. And though we don’t offer the traditional butterzopf, we do offer the best barbecue and buffet catering for funerals in the King of Prussia area.

How much does funeral catering cost?

What Our Clients Say

Elizabeth thank you again for the quick response . The event went well and the food was remarkable. I told Abe we should get some of your business cards because everyone wanted to know where you were. Again thank you and if not before we will see you on Labor Day!!!

Lynn W. , Elkins Park, PA

Thank you so much ! Everything was fabulous and more then enough food ! We actually had left overs and brought to the office for the group to enjoy!

J. H Conshohocken, Office Holiday Party

Yes! Our block party was a hit and the food was as well! If there are any takeaways for us next year it’s to order more Mac n Cheese… that was annihilated in minutes ha!

Thank you for great service and food.

R.D , Lafayette Hill Block Party

Hi Elizabeth,

The food was fantastic. So many people raved and asked for information on where to find you ( which I gladly supplied:). I even had leftovers on Sunday and they were delicious next day as well.

The food stayed warm and moist for the party which was great.

Also very easy to place order with you and everything about deliver and set up was perfect.

Thanks so much. I’m sure we’ll see you again!

M.S., Radnor Graduation

Hi Elizabeth,

Everything was great for the party. Everyone enjoyed the food and it was very easy to warm up. Have a great day!

C.F., Collegeville Birthday

Yes and although I was notified that my delivery would be arriving 15 minutes late, it was worth the wait.

We enjoyed everything and I will be ordering again.

Thank you for such scrumptious food.

K. Boyd, Kitchen-to-Kitchen Meal Order

I should have let you know before this but yes, everything was great with our Kitchen to Kitchen recent order.

Not only was the food wonderful, your delivery service was also great.

I have given your information to several of my friends.

Will be ordering again soon!

Thank you again and stay well.

R. Holt, Kitchen-to-Kitchen Meal Order

Hi Elizabeth,
Everything turned out great – thanks for asking! My sister was a huge help heating everything up so I would not get sauce on my white dress. LOL Everyone raved about the food, of course, and there are not too many leftovers. Brisket went first. I loved the mozzarella capri!

Thanks for all your help and coordination to make hosting so easy!

Wish I had photos of the food or people eating, but we were having too much fun.

K.S., Ambler, Engagement Party

Hi Elizabeth!

Thanks for checking in – everything was great!

The mac and cheese was a huge hit and got all eaten up. If we do this next year, we’ll definitely order a bit more (probably 2 more trays).

I’ve put it in my notes. As always, thank you for being so easy to work with….we love Zachary’s BBQ!

The synergistic effect is what makes Zachary's- a combination of family recipes and pride from the Chef/Owner Keith, the fresh and some quite unique ingredients, the love and joy of preparing & serving food instilled in the staff by Keith make for a delicious down south meal well north of the Mason/Dixon line. Go get your fingers dirty, they got plenty of paper towels.

Zachary's BBQ + Elizabeth were both incredible for our event. Great communication all throughout the process and the delivery & setup were timely and organized, we're so happy we went with Zachary's. Everyone raved about the food, I was worried we didn't get enough but I'm glad I went with Elizabeth's recommendation-- it was the perfect amount! Couldn't be more pleased with how everything came out, thank you Zachary's!

Zachary’s catered for my husbands birthday and it was amazing! Everything came so nicely and ready to go. The food was delicious, people went in for seconds and thirds! They could not stop talking about it. Made for easy setup/cleanup, allowing for us all to relax and enjoy! Would definitely do this again!

I am so glad I chose Zachary's to cater our grad party. From start to end everything was perfect. The BBQ was delicious. I could not have been happier.

This BBQ was amazing. The meat practically fell off the ribs, and the brisket was so tender, no knife was needed. The chicken was moist and delicious. The potato salad was so good, it was completely gone by the end of the day. Salad was great, and everyone loved the cornbread. The baked beans were excellent, and the corn-on-the-cob was the best I've ever eaten. Not one complaint from the 70+ people at our party. The caterers were so personable, friendly and helpful. The set-up was beautiful, and I loved that they left the leftovers in aluminum containers so we were able to enjoy that food for several dinners afterwards. I highly recommend them!

It was the perfect day. Not 1 person said anything bad about your food and staff. I am sure you will be getting calls from people there. The pig is the moistest pork I have ever had. I am so happy that we went with you. My mother-in-law was very happy. Thank you again. Kudos to your staff, they were wonderful.

I cannot say enough about our experience with Zachary's. Elizabeth helped us out on very short notice and we loved everything about it. The food was great and the service was excellent. Their awesome service took so much of the burden off of us. Our only regret was not ordering dessert. (next time) We look forward to our next event with them.
