Our Happy Customers!

Can’t say enough great things about Mike and the Smokin’ Gringos food truck! We booked the truck for an event hosted by Caroline Apartments for MUSC employees, and the number of people who attended far exceeded what we expected. BUT Mike was prepared for this situation, and we had plenty of food to serve everyone! The food was delicious and we will absolutely be using Smokin’ Gringos in the future! Highly recommend!

Facebook Review

We had a great experience with Mike catering our resident “tailgate” event at The Passage Apartments. The pork is incredible and the “gringo baked beans” are really great as well. Mike went the extra mile and provided a little more than we requested just in case. You won’t be dissapointed if you hire him.

Hands down the BEST BBQ in the low country!! The Smokin Gringos catered a large business party for my company and employees and guests are still talking about how good it was. If Mike opened a restaurant today he would be the talk to the town for sure. Keep up the great work guys!!
