We discovered Keane's while looking for a less-traditional vendor to fit our dream of a "tacos and margaritas" theme. Keane's both fit our budget and threw us the wedding of a lifetime, even going out of their way to accommodate a winter holiday wedding. Our guests loved the brisket and raved about the cocktails. Kym helped stay us on top of everything and was very professional. Cannot recommend enough. We kept coming back for Friday night take out to "taste test" and will be back again in the future!

(Moved to RI a few years back) I was skeptical to get BBQ catered but let me tell yall..... This is TOP NOTCH BBQ! These folks know how to smoke meats. Well done! Ill be using you guys for all my future events/parties. I tried all the meats and they are all fantastic. The sides are just as good. 20/10 would recommend to a friend!

Most successful family BBQ ever and all thanks Padraic at Boru! Had his food for the first time at a catered event 6 months ago and couldn't wait to have his Brisket, Corn Bread, Pickles (frankly everything he makes) for our next family gathering. Padraic was extremely diligent with helping us make the day a super success and taught me how to cut the brisket. Can't wait to hire him again!
