This was our first time using a caterer for any event. From the first call to inquire information to the moment the event ended, everything went smoothly. We're very pleased and glad that there were no hick ups. I would certainly recommend as well as call them again for future events. Thanks Jesse!

Zeke Casas catered my daughters Quinceñera, he made Chili verde, rice, beans, fresh salad, an amazing salad dressing, rolls, and salsa. So many people loved the food.. so much flavor with every bit.. there was not one thing without flavor.. the family rated his food as the most amazing, delicious, dish they have tasted. Zeke and his crew are very respectful, helpful, and caring. They take the time out to make sure everything was to your liking.. they left the hall kitchen spotless, like no one had ever used it.. I give Zeke and his crew 10 stars.. amazing job, amazing food, and I recommend him for your next event... never can go wrong with a great caterers..

Bill Blackburn was extremely professional, responded quickly to our requests, was easy to get ahold of, and worked with our unusual event needs. He was on time and made sure no details were missed. His pricing was reasonable, and the service was excellent! After the event we were asked by numerous people who the caterer was and how we found him. We were told by everyone that he didn't miss a beat!

I would highly recommend her to be your planner. Thank you Esther!!!

When considering a caterer, you could not hire a more amazing chef than the lovely and talented Rashon Smith. She is truly a culinary genius and her food, an artistic construction of delicious and savory dishes that surpass anything your palate could hope for. My husband and I were blessed to have Mrs. Smith cater our wedding in Malibu and were thoroughly pleased with every aspect of our catering experience. I highly recommend Rashon Smith for any and all of your culinary needs, she is truly a cut above.

The Corner Butcher Shop

    This is hands down the best butcher shop/caterer/wine store and restaurant in the Inland Empire! I used to shop at another high end local market who's quality I thought was good. Until I found The Corner Butcher Shop. Their products are superior and less expensive than the local market I used to go to. Their meats are reasonably priced for the top quality you receive. The service is over the top. Want something custom cut for you? No problem. You can even get the meat you buy there cooked for you while you wait, so you can take it home for dinner. How easy is that? My favorites are their smoked chicken salad and of course, their prime steaks. If you're going to have a BBQ, and want the best possible meat, poultry or fish for the grill, this is the place to come. And if you want a quick lunch or dinner - you can eat there as well. They make their own sausages too.

    David and his team catered my son's wedding for us. The food was amazing and the Waitstaff was very responsive. I will never use any other Caterer. They are the best and the price that was quoted was what we paid they did not try to up the dollar amount the closer we got to the wedding. Thank you David's Catering & Waitstaff.

      Wards knows food! We regularly use their services for our annual weekend of activities on Lake Mead. The quality of food, quantity, selection, and value is incomparable. They know how to buy fresh ingredients, safely store ingredients, quickly prepare meals, and present the elements in a tasty and enjoyable experience. To add to that, I know no one that loves preparing meals as much as Del Rio. She prepares the most unique and flavorful twists on items known to man. If you have a chance to taste their food, or better yet, have them cater an event for you, rest assured, there will be silence when the food is prepared. Enjoy the experience with WARDS

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

        Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

        Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

        How much should catering cost per person?

        Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

        • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
        • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
        • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
        • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
        • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
