We have had many private chefs and caterers. We have found our “go to” chef service. Food was amazing. Mike and Matt were fun. They entertained the kids at the bar as they cooked, served.. and cleaned up. If you have never had a personal chef, try them. If you have before, uplevel to them. And by the way.. the cost was a bargain. Dinner for 8 with wine and beer pairing Less than $100 per person Insanely goid!

We had our annual rock'n'roll party in our yard with 100+ of our closest friends! This year, we decided to take some of the burden off and hire a bartender. It was a first for us and I was a little nervous about how this would work out. From the moment Rick arrived at our home, he was perfection! He was extremely professional and kept everybody happy all day/night, as this was an 11 hour party!! Thank you, Rick, for easing some of hosting responsibilities. We'll see you next year!!

We had a party and decided that we wanted a bartender. So glad we came across Carol! She is so professional and super personable. She did such a great job! I highly recommend her and would definitely have her back when we have another big party!

I have been enjoying the delicious food from Danny's On Douglas for going on 25 years now going back to when they were known as Danny's Pizza located in a storefront on McLean Blvd over on Elgin's west side. For a long time now I have been ordering my Pizza with carmelized onions and pepperoni and it's oh so very good! But I truly love cheese-only, well-done and pie-cut. Most recently, my friends and I have ordered their lip-smacking Fried Chicken & BBQ Ribs combo. The French Fries were perfectly crunchy and the Cole Slaw tasted freshly made. The waitstaff and bartenders were attentive and efficient and a lot of fun to be around. They seemed to enjoy their job. I highly recommend Danny's on Douglas! Mr. DJ

Chris and Carla were great. They provided the backup we needed to have a wonderful wedding venue in our backyard. They are very professional and pleasant and would use them again. I highly recommend them.

About

I have more than 15 years of wonderful experience in food service. I enjoy working with the public as I have a great attitude and promptness and have many references to reflect as to my experience. As a server/bartender, it is very important to not only know food and beverages but to have speed serving customers, to be courteous and I have been told I know how to satisfy and get through even the most difficult unexpected situations that might arise. I don't just work serving food and drinks because it is a job but because I really enjoy working with the public, making people happy and leaving a good memory for customers to walkaway with.
