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.






Ludy’s has been our caterer of choice for our “Great Train Robbery” event for ten years. We had tried others but no other caterer has worked so closely with us to ensure all our needs are met. The food is always perfect, the staff is always on time and our guest always leave satisfied and raving about the great food.
