Great meal and wonderful staff. Service was top notch and all food was prepared perfectly!
David's food was amazing! Can't believe it was all made in our kitchen. He prepared a dinner for my wife and I, and we were both so excited to eat! We formulated the outline of a menu together, and he adjusted based on what was the best ingredients he could find. He was professional, and very personable. We definitely plan to use him again!
I have to say that the food is amazing. I’m on the hcg diet and cater 2 u (Mike Watson) has made the 500 calories a day amazing. All the meals are packed with flavor and he made sure they stuck to the 500 calories a day. Meals were proportioned and numbered. I could not have done the HCG Diet with him. I would recommend him to anyone. I will be using him after the hcg diet as well. The food is that good!!
Lindsey was a pleasure to work with. We hired her to provide meals during a particularly busy week. She offered us healthy and delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner options that we thoroughly enjoyed! She was also very accommodating of both our tastes, avoiding certain foods we didn't like, and our schedules when it came to arranging delivery of the meals. We would highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again in the future!
Tammy was awesome. She came well prepared and our food was amazing. My husband loved it and that was who the party was for. We will definitely use her again. Guests at the party were very surprised and said they would also do it. It was so nice to be able to visit with my guests knowing everything was being well taken care of and the best part was no clean up!!!! Job we'll done Tammy
Kirk hed a private cooking lesson, at my home, for about 15 family and friends.Kirk spend about 4-5 hours with us. Kirk was on time and ready to go at our scheduled time. What impressed me most about Kirk was not only his creativity as a chef , but he was also extremely patient in answering all of our questions. He educated us on everything from what to look for in a set of knives to the importance of selecting the freshest ingredients. He talked us through everything that he prepared. The quality of the meal he prepared was delicious!!! Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Kirk as a Chef.
Carol did a fantastic job. I have her quite a challenge with barely more than 24 hours notice. She pulled off a wonderful fresh, hot meal. Delivered it, set-up, and came back after to clean up. Top notch!
We catered for our daughter's birthday party. The food was on time, hot, and ready to eat! Great taste and saved me time in the kitchen!
Tracy cooked some great & fabulous meals for my husband & I. She helped with entertaining. She worked for us abt 10 yrs. She took us around the world by just staying at our kitchen table. Everything she cooked was delicious, appetizing & nutritious. She is very easy to get along with & always willing to help. I am moving to Florida & will miss her terribly. Ricki Parkes, Chicago, IL
We had a most wonderful and tasty brunch prepared by Chef Frank. Will book again next year for a dinner when we visit Florida again! Thanks Frank for a great treat that was one of the highlights of our college roommates 42nd spring break celebration!!!!
Mikey has been a great addition! He's very creative, responsive, professional and is very flexible! We've enjoyed having him in our home and his meals are delicious!
Southern Spice provides that unique flavor that reminds you of recipe's GrandMa would put together and satisfy the entire families appetite. I highly recommend if you have a taste for authentic home cooked food!
I would like to thank you for catering my birthday party. Your menu is impressive and I was happy to see you were able to cook meal choices not on your menu. Your prices was very reasonable for the amount of people you prepared food for. Everyone that attended said your food was great and I will agree.You and your staff were very professional and showed true meaning to serves with a smile. I was impressed, I have your card, I will be in touch.
Brian came to my house to cook for a group of 8 of us my boyfriend's 30th birthday. Everyone could not stop raving about how great the meal was and how impressed they were. The quality was amazing. Everything was super fresh and delicious! He even sent us the recipes after the meal (per our request). Would highly recommend him and would definitely use him for future parties/events!
Katie is just terrific!! She was a delight to work with during a time when my husband had a special limited diet he had to follow. She happily created delicious meals that he could eat and was always interested in our feedback. She is a wonderful chef and very knowledgeable about nutrition too.
Larissa has been preparing meals for me for nearly 3 months. My strict diet restricts me from eating many types of foods. She takes great care to ensure that my dietary needs are met in addition to great flavor.
We used J's for a block party and he was great. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, he soldiered on and gave us an amazing meal. The tacos (steak, chicken and pork) were delicious!!! Everyone loved it. I would definitely recommend J's for any of your catering needs.
Mark was incredible. Like far-exceeding-expectations incredible. I’m not sure what I liked more; his personality or his food. The meal was delicious, and unique - my wife and I were beyond impressed. You need to do yourself a favor and hire Mark.
Susan could not be more accommodating or pleasant. She asked copious amounts of questions to find out my food preferences and issues. She came to meet me on the first delivery and brought hot food ready for that nights meal. Of the food I've had so far, delicious. This is someone to high for all kinda of food needs.
Fantastic food, professional presentation, overall an amazing experience. Chef David prepared a week of healthy meals for me, individually packed and ready to enjoy!

I'm a very versatile chef. I love experiencing Asian cuisines and Traditional cuisines as well. I'm open minded and I enjoy seeing the smiles on my customers faces when they devour the food I prepared for them.
