Amazing food, great quality! Looking for a caterer for a wedding is overwhelming. GHI made it much easier. I got quotes from about 6 caterers and GHI's food was top notch and their price was affordable. Some caterers were twice the price of GHI. They were accommodating to our gluten-free and vegan guests with LOTS of options that were clearly labeled. Guests LOVED the salmon. The coconut-infused risotto was a hit too! They made it seamless. Grateful to have found them for our wedding.

From the first conversation I had with Vince to the planning phase with Linda, GHI demonstrated professionalism and care for my event. The day of the event the food truck arrived promptly and the two workers were so efficient and personable and very enjoyable to work with. This was a nice experience and the food was GREAT!

These guys were amazing, from the moment I spoke to the owner, to Amanda taking care of all my needs and them providing a food truck for 250 kid's birthday party guests. I was so busy not only did I not meet them, I also didn't taste a single food from the 11 item menu. My guests loved the food and I got so many compliments, you would think I cooked the food. They even gave my amazing nephew a tour of their food truck. Thank you GHI for making this event memorable, I just pray I have many more parties in the future so that I taste your amazing food. Everyone else took pictures but I didn't :(

What a lovely review. We are so grateful for your having taken the time to write this. I feel bad that you didn't eat! Please come out to one of our public events & tell the staff who you are so we can load you up with free food. Vince

We used GHI to cater our rehearsal dinner and welcome reception at Wild Heaven in Avondale. We were looking for an intentionally low-key affair, and GHI absolutely delivered. They served our agreed upon 3 option dinner to 32 guests for the first hour and a half of our event. They served out of their food truck, and each guest could choose any of the 3 options - each dinner was served quickly, they accommodated some of our guests quirky requests despite not being forewarned about them (all allergies were taken care of, this was just guest preference!), and did not run out of food. Food was all warm and delicious! Items were plated in disposable picnic trays, which was perfect for our vibe. After dinner, our event opened to all wedding guests and GHI switched to serving some snacks - another set of 3 options that were recommended by GHI. We had soft prezels, mini tacos, and tater tos, none of which we had tasted prior to choosing, but all of which we were impressed with. Guests really enjoyed having something to munch on alongside their beers, and serving out of the GHI truck added to the low-key ambiance we were going for. I can't speak to the wider service of GHI for a full wedding as we used the food truck and had picnic tables provided by the venue for seating, but they were the perfect vendor for what we were looking for, and a great partner in planning our (twice postponed) event. They provided a bartender for any guests who wanted wine instead of beer, provided quick, kind, and efficient service, and kept all areas clean throughout the night. I would recommend them to anyone interested in catering an event, in particular via their food truck!
