I have been using The Rusty Rudder to cater physician lunches for about a year. They’ve done various dishes for me but my personal favorite and that of my customers is his pulled pork! We have lots of bbq options in the Lowcountry but The Rudder’s is some of the best. Never ever greasy or fatty at all! My customers are always wanting to know where it came from and I know The RR has gotten new customers just after having the pulled pork once! I know when I call Brian that it will be taken care of from start to finish much to the delight of my and my customers! Always full service done right and on time.
I look forward to using your services for many of my future client catering needs.Jennifer Williams, Purdue Products Pharmaceuticals
