We hired Jesus' catering service for our granddaughter's First Birthday Party. Our guests raved about the food and its presentation. There were a few glitches, miscommunication of park location, beans were a bit undercooked, forgot plates but overall the cooks were very nice and did an excellent job. I would definitely recommend them and hire them again. Thank you. gm

I have nothing but great things to say about the service, quality, and overall delivery of Best Mobile Chef. From beginning to end, Shawna was very attentive and professional. As a bride, I can honestly say that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful experiences in your life; however, Shawna did an amazing job at making sure I was not stressed or worried when it came to the catering, bartending, and cake. She made sure that each and every need was met, and she even offered her assistance with cutting our cake even though that was out of her services. We sat down and went over every detail, and Shawna made sure to keep in touch throughout the way to maintain things and to make sure that we were on track with everything. Finally on the day of, the food and setup was more than what was expected. Our family and friends spoke so highly of the food and service. Shawna and her team was absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I would definitely book Shawna and her team again for a large dinner, and even desserts. We are both forever thankful and grateful!

June was fantastic! She was extremely responsive to every inquiry/email I had, and made it so easy to decide on our menu for our event (Bridal Shower). Her pricing is extremely affordable, and the food was delicious! Everyone loved all the food, but the crowd favorite was definitely the Cheesy Hashbrown casserole. I would highly recommend her for any event catering needs!!

We found Prime Cuts Catering through Thumbtack, we emailed Ron and he responded via phone immediately after. We put him in touch with the host and set everything up. At the party the staff catering was excellent: professional, friendly, clean, prompt. Everything you would want and expect. But the food was absolutely amazing!!! It was cooked to perfection and we are still craving it days after!!! Everything was delicious!!! The prices and service was great! We couldn't ask for anything better!!! We are super happy we choose Prime Cuts and will definitely be using it again. We are really grateful for Ron's flexibility and timing, and are so happy he catered for my Uncle's special day! Many thanks!! Sincerely, Ashley and Clifton Rider

Ciccio did such a great job, he was fun friendly and professional. The food had a great quality taste and our very picky guests loved all the courses. Many of us in the party are considering having another event with him in the San Diego area would hire again and again for excellent food presentation and professionalism. With this chef there are no worries!! He was patient did not rush the group and was awesome!!!!! Highly Reccomend!!

We ordered lunch for our wedding rehearsal day through Steal Your Taste Catering Company. Our menu consisted of tacos, beans, rice, and salad. It was all delicious and affordable! We had a ton of left overs that kept us fed and satisfied all the week. David also rented a margarita machine on our behalf and has it delivered with all the mixings. This company was organized, yummy, and reliable! I would highly recommend David and Steal Your Taste Catering Company.

I was searching online and I found a website called thumbtack so I put my name and what kind of catering I need and about the price and how many people that I needed this for, in about 30 minutes I started getting different quotes and different estimates for exactly what I was looking for, the first person to respond to me was Avian he called me and we discussed what I needed and gave me a couple different quotes eventually he ended up working with me and the price that I needed I thought for sure it was a home run and it turned out to be an absolute success the food was amazing and there was plenty of it he worked with whatever we needed him to work with with no complaints he was very professional and he was very understanding and our families time of grieving if I had to hire him again I would do it in an instant without thinking twice and I would recommend him to any of my friends and family but I can't really say that now because my whole family did eat from him and they loved it they raved about it. The taco cart was amazing everything was so fresh I'm actually craving some of the adobada he made... 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 when the party was done he left us all the leftovers thank God cuz the next day after the party we didn't want to cook so we ended up making rolled tacos out of the meat that he left us and again it was still absolutely delicious I would like to say thank you again to Avian and his family for catering our party our family will have you back anytime thank you again so much

I wish there was one perfect word for those who go above and beyond...Let me tell you, Jennifer at Next Event Catering was the calmest, sweetest, most amazing vendor at this years Youth Employment Service (YES) Volunteer Dinner. Her and her crew were extremely professional, and will accommodate your every need. For example as a supporter of the mission and vision of YES, they donated the volunteer dinner! Who does that??!! Oh yeah, the food was DELICIOUS! I have received countless complements from our volunteers and the Executive Director at YES on how amazing it was. If you go with Next Event Catering, you've made the RIGHT choice!

We had a phenomenal Thanksgiving Dinner prepared and delivered by BAPS catering. We were expecting about 20 people for our holiday dinner and BAPS catering delivered a wonderful meal that everyone loved. The turkey was moist, the vegetables, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and pumpkin cheesecake were delicious. Needless to say, we had enough food to satisfy everyone and still had some great Thanksgiving leftovers. We would definitely recommend BAPS catering for everyone who wants tasty food cooked just the way you like. Thanks for helping us make our holiday dinner such a success!

Christine McMaster is a hidden gem of the culinary and catering world! She was the caterer last year for a wedding I attended and I was most impressed. She completely handled an amazing dinner for 21 people with delectable Indian and Middle Eastern Food; taking care of the shopping, the food preparation, the service and cleaning up of the food and leftovers. I was so impressed that I asked her to cater an Indian Meal for 75 people! Since it was a much larger undertaking, we provided theingredients, but Chris oversaw every aspect of the preparation of a 5 course meal, and remained calm, organized and personable throughout. The food was absolutely delicious. I would absolutely recommend her for any catering needs you might have - you would be lucky to get her!

Daily Chew Catering dished up a bit of heaven on a plate for a holiday party recently and from the first time I contacted Carly until the last bit of food was gone, we were blown away by the entire experience. Daily Chew Catering offers a wide selection of menu options, so there's guaranteed to be something great for every palate, and everything is done well. Daily Chew does food service right, and I'll no doubt be quick to call back and start planning for our next event as soon as the time comes. Thank you for the professionalism, the amazing food, and your passion for great-tasting, incredible quality catering experience!

When we were looking for a professional to cater our clubhouse event, we contacted five companies. Creative Catering from Temecula was one of those five. From the start, we were very comfortable talking and working with the owner, Tanya. She is extremely friendly and accommodating. Tanya provided us with sample meals to taste and was able to provide guidance from start to finish. As our guest list grew from 30 to 60 she was able to be very flexible to whatever changes needed to be made. Every time we had a question or menu change, Tanya responded promptly and professionally. On the evening of the clubhouse social, Tanya and her assistant were very punctual. The set-up, service and clean-up went flawlessly. Feedback from our club members was very positive. Our guests commented to us how well the meals tasted and how professional Tanya and her assistant were. The bottom line is that we would highly recommend Creative Catering and we will be looking forward to using them in the future. NJ and LJ (55+ Club)

Michael and his team at URBN went above and beyond to make our corporate event a success! Their Pizzas were delicious and very well received by the entire team! Plus the fact that they bake them on the spot in their oven creates an unique experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone and will certainly use them again. Thanks on behalf of the entire Fox team!
