Kris did an amazing job catering our banquet. She was very professional and punctual to the event. She was very flexible in working with our organization for our members that were vegetarian, lactose-intolerant, and gluten-free. She was very prepared for any issues that could arise. Overall, she was an amazing, understanding, and prepared caterer. She was just wonderful to work with!

Local Yocals has easily become a family favorite. They are able to blend the perfect combination of incredibly fresh local flavors, and incredible chef talent. The menu as always has staples, but also has new flavors to try. If I have to choose a vendor at any event and Local Yocals is an option, we will choose them every single time. One thing I also appreciate is that they write where the food sources are from, it seems like everyone claims to be local, and this is the real deal. Well done.

Park Place Catering did an outstanding job at my son and daughter-in-law's wedding in September in Ames. The food was amazing and the service was also. Not only did they keep beverages containers filled at the front beverage table, which was not their responsibility, but they also cleaned up the whole kitchen spotless and even did all of our dishes when they were done. I was so impressed with Park Place Catering and recommend them to anyone. They take pride in their business.

Johnny gave detailed instruction and demonstrated all aspects of the cooking experience. He also provided information about food purchasing, storing and preserving, as well as tips for preventing cross-contamination. I will be scheduling additional classes. My experience was delightful.

    We had them cater an event for us and overall it was a very good experience. Alex was easy to communicate with and catered to our needs specifically. The food was amazing and all our guests really enjoyed themselves! Would definitely recommend to a friend.

    I recently asked Carlos to cater an 80-person lunch event for a symposium my research group was hosting at Iowa State. Carlos did a fantastic job keeping in touch, letting us know his needs and exactly what he would be providing. His food is absolutely phenomenal! He made it fresh immediately beforehand and kept it well heated during the lunch. The buffet line moved quickly and everyone was very satisfied with the choices. Prices were extremely reasonable. All in all, I very highly recommend Carlos for any of your catering needs!
