Mercedes and her team catered our wedding at Brookside Gardens. Mercedes was responsive and flexible throughout the planning process. We also worked with MJE to provide table and linen rentals for our reception space. They outsourced the rentals to another company but it was great to have someone else overseeing one of the wedding vendors. Both teams did a phenomenal job! On the day of, the MJE and rental crew showed up on time and made sure everything went smoothly. We had a cocktail style reception with assorted appetizers and had many guests compliment the food. The rental team showed up at the requested time to help break the event back down. We highly recommend MJE Catering!

AMAZING!!!​! I wanted to email you right away, but things were so crazy, I thought it best to wait. I can’t say enough about MJE Catering. You and your staff went well over and beyond anything we expected, you guys were the very best! What great people you have. You’re the best, you made everything work. The food was great. It was presented so nicely too. From the moment the staff arrived and until Anthony left, you all made my life so easy. I thought I would have had to do a lot more, but you all took care of everything! My guests couldn’t believe what a amazing birthday party I  threw. I got so many compliments on the food, the setup, Anthony, everything. It was mostly on account of you. Thank you for putting up with all the changing around and me freaking out about everything. It was more than I could handle with my work schedule and everything. Even though I didnt have as many people as planned, my family had a great time. It was the first time many of us had seen each other since 2019. With your help I had the family birthday celebration that I was hoping for.  We even added some bagels, salmon and more fruit (all of the fruit was gone by the days end) plus the leftovers and we had a great brunch for 25, again. I had a good time and my family raved about the food!!! Thank you so much!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    MJE Catering provides quality menu items at an affordable and competitive a la carte price. You know your crowd and your event theme better than we do, so we price this way so you can build a package that best suits your needs instead of us boxing you into a package deal that doesn't really work for your group. You can order as many or as few (really 15) of any menu item you desire. We run regular specials and promotions - ask us what we have cookin' this month!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First we’ll need you to complete our initial inquiry form. It may seem a bit redundant since you've already given Thumbtack some of this information, but it helps us have all your event information in one place. Once we decide upon your menu selections, we’ll create a quote for you. If all looks well, you’ll accept the quote and we require a 50% deposit to hold your date.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    ECPI Culinary Institute of Virginia, Norfolk, VA Culinaria, Vienna, VA
