In 1994, Executive Chef Paul Ludovina opened Ludy’s Main Street BBQ, a casual dining “destination” restaurant in his hometown of Woodland, California.  After spending more than 16 years in Santa Barbara operating gourmet restaurants, he realized the need in Northern California for a more fun and free-spirited dining experience.  Specializing in slow-smoked barbecue, the restaurant quickly became a hometown favorite.

After combining his signature gourmet menu items with the casual barbecue of the restaurant, Paulw as able to create a catering company with a very diverse menu; Ludy’s Catering.  Since then, Ludy’s has blossomed into a company that can deliver anything from fine dining to barbecue buffets anywhere in California.  Ludy’s is a favorite among wineries and wedding planners alike, with the ability to fit within any budget.  Whatever the need might be, Ludy’s is able to provide with a 120% guarantee.

I want to thank Ludy’s for the amazing job you did at your VIP event in San Francisco last week. The rather demanding client and his guest repeatedly raved about both the food and the service, insisting that–despite their high expectations–the entire event went above and beyond anything they had anticipated, especially the catering. We have worked with every type and level of caterer in the Greater Bay Area, but none of them comes close to Ludy’s. Thanks again, for being the best.
