I hosted a wedding shower for my son and his fiance. I planned for 30 guests to have lunch (sandwiches, roll-ups, fruit, veggies, and dessert. Dominick was wonderful! He had everything we needed, including vegan and gluten free options. The food was delicious and we had more than enough. I am very pleased and will definitely use his yummy catering again!

Kitchen on Wheels Catering has provided family meals for us for the few months. The food is awesome. Each week we're delived 5 freshly cooked meals. Which is great for our busy work week. I highly recommend them for families on the go.

Felicia was so helpful and responsive to my questions. They worked with me on getting some of our meals cooked separately for some of my coworkers with dietary restrictions. The food turned out nice, delivery went smoothly. I am so glad the delivery guys called ahead though, since they got mixed up on the time and exact location! We straightened it all out and it turned out great. As far as the food goes, I would definitely recommend the chicken Portobello and marinated grilled veggies. The mashed potatoes however, were very dense and a tad grainy. I also thought we were supposed to get gravy for them and we did not. We used the sauce from the chicken and it totally made up for it! Fruit, cheese, salad all fresh. Would use again.

Prestige Catering was on the ball right from the start. Super fast and honest quote, they worked with our menu needs flawlessly and their staff were professional and delivered the food on time the day of the event. We hired them 'from afar' and were hesitant at the beginning b/c we weren't going to be at the event, but these guys carried the day. I would recommend them for any catering event and would use them again. Oh.. and the food was delicious!

Greg himself was over 2 hours late arriving to set up. He was supposed to arrive at 2:30 an food was to be served by 5-5:30. He arrived at 4:30 only to leave 15 min later because he received a call from his driver with the food saying he was lost and was having a panic attack. Greg and his sister left his niece, which was her 1st day on the job, (as she told me) at the reception to get drinks going, which she didn't do, that had to be done by my son-in-laws aunt's and grandmother and myself. My daughter's wedding was ruined. I am not being dramatic it was absolutely ruined. I didn't get to enjoy the reception nor did my son-in-laws mother because we were to busy getting coffee refilled and drinks and dealing with the driver who had come in thru the front door and told a guest how he needed to lay down because he was having a panic attack. So, while Greg dished out the food (which I was told some of the chicken was undercooked) uncles. aunts, and church elders were continuously checking on Greg's employee, which is ridiculous because they were there for a reception of their niece and nephew. Also, because of his lateness, about 150 ppl left because the wedding was at 4:30 and ppl were starving by 7:00 and no food had arrived. so needless to say her mother-in-law who paid for 300 ppl, only about 150 ppl actually ate. Greg arrived about 7:20 and food was served about 7:40. (ppl complained of the chicken being undercooked). I then found out, once the reception was over and cleaning up that Greg threw away about 4 trays of chicken, at least 4 trays of lasagna,(I saw this in 2 garbage bags that were half full of this food, and was told by a groomsman who was taking the trash out that he had taken 2 other bags just like that, he also took back the breadsticks he didn't use and took with him the green beans and salad that were left over. This truly disgusts me. This food was paid for and he just threw it away. he did leave 3 trays of chicken and 2 trays of lasagna, but threw away so much more without asking?? That food was paid for. I didn't pay for the food this was done by my daughter's mother-in-law. From what I understand Greg's response was to give her a $100 back and then credit towards her next event!!! Why he would think she would ever use him again is beyond me. His response was that in his contract, he's not responsible for what his driver does (he failed to respond to the fact that HE was 2 hrs late) also, that HE threw away all that food. He also said he'd already given us a big discount. That discount was because we had 300 guests (he had 3 ppl as his staff, which consisted of him, his sister and his niece who looked to be about 18 and it was her first time) and that was his excuse for not refunding her money back. The discount does not excuse the fact that HE was late, his driver was late, he threw away food, he didn't provide drink service (we did, aunts and grandma's and myself and her mother-in-law). When her mother-in-law said that was unacceptable I hear he threatened her with his lawyer. She wasn't even looking for a full refund which i believe she deserves, the very least she should be refunded for the 150 ppl that walked out.(she said she would have been ok with $500 back just for the gesture of admitting he completely screwed up our kids wedding reception) I don't now where this stands but I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CATERER. I read his reviews and I met him in person. I trusted that he was going to help make my daughter's day special and something to remember. He definitely didn't make it special but it will be remembered. I understand things happen the driver getting lost, but none of this would've happened if Greg hadn't been late himself and there's no excuse for throwing away that food.

My son used ACATERED Affair on Chistmas Eve for family and friends ! I have to be honest and say that they were fantastic'n Mot only was the food scrumptious ! But they were clean cut people with great personality ! Believe me I wouldn't eat food fixed by a person that is dirty and anti customer non friendly !! I refuse ! SO if you have catering needs for anything even weddings don't hesitate to contact A CATERED AFFAIR. I've ate several different foods they prepare all A Plus !!

I was in a real jam for our daughter's Bridal Shower. Because we had sold our home and I was so busy with packing and moving, and then unpacking, I let the time slip-up on me to get the food ordered and prepared for the Shower ! It was Chuck, at A CATERED AFFAIR, and his wonderful associates, who said they could make this happen for me, even with the short notice as the 2 weeks I gave them ! (My words, NOT his). THIS IS AN AMAZING COMPANY AND GROUP OF WONDERFUL, CARING PROFESSIONALS !! They are Extremely Professional, kind and frankly, my LIFESAVERS ! I tried several other catering companies. One did not answer, 2 were booked, and acted as if I had created a major and profound injury, but Chuck said, "We can help you !" And I know they were, and are, as busy as any other catering business at this time of year: So, my profound thanks for their willingness to help me out of a very tough situation !

Our event has not taken place yet. However, I must say working with Chuck was an extreme pleasure. He got back to me in record time and was very courteous, very professional, & great to work with. We had all the details worked out in a matter of 3-4 emails. He was very gracious with a couple of minor changes on my end. I would HIGHLY recommend Chuck Webster with'A Catered Affair' for any & all of your catering needs. I have no doubts the food itself will be as great as the service.

I needed a quality caterer in a hurry from afar. I read the reviews for Chef Jessica, and sent her some ideas for the 2 days we would need her. She is so easy to work with. The group wrote back telling me "the Catering was a hit! The quality of the food is great and we will definitely redo if we ever need it again!" Day 2 they came back with " She out did herself! Thank you for the awesome food, set up and take down was seamless. The display was beautiful!" I can say that my company is very loyal to a caterer once they find one they like. They are very particular about the quality, and Jessica hit it out of the park! We will continue to use her for future needs!.. Thank you Jessica!

I hired Jessica to cater an Open House for our Home Care Agency. From the moment I met Jessica I liked her! She is warm and friendly with a "can do" attitude. She presented me with a gourmet lunch menu all made with fresh foods and herbs. Her presentation of the food and arrangements was beautiful. She used fresh flowers and herbs from her own garden. We had @ 50 guests and had plenty of food. The guests couldn't stop talking about how good all the food was! I would use Jessica again and I would definitely recommend her for any catering job. She is a wonderful person!

I cannot rave enough about DeAnna. I contacted her about catering my rehearsal dinner. I was looking for good food, a nice presentation that fit into my budget. I will be honest I previously had never tried her food or went to an event where she had catered. I picked her based on reviews, pictures, her ability to give me what I wanted in my budget and a little faith. I AM SO HAPPY I DID. When I said people raved about the food, it is an understatement. We had a Mediterranean themed menu and I am still dreaming about it. She was able to fulfill every dietary restriction and special request I had. She even stayed and helped serve. People are still asking me about the food. She has a customer for life! Baby Showers, Birthday Parties, Graduation Parties... I know who I will call.

I can't think Deanna and her team enough! She saved my day with stepping in and taking lots of stress off my shoulders! Not only was she super helpful but was very caring and sweet! She helped keep everything in line, even parts that weren't catering/wait staffs job. Would recommend this company to anyone

The Nook Events & Catering was the perfect fit for our wedding. Sabrina was so personable and made us feel incredibly comfortable with the process. We had just lost our catering choice a month before the wedding and then we discovered The Nook. The time that Sabrina took out of her day to make us feel like we were going to be taken care of was unseen in the market. She worked with our budget and helped us find exactly what we needed. She had great advice for the day of and how things should be don. She was very sensitive to the theme of our wedding and how things would be set up and made the whole process seamless. We used the full service and it was above and beyond what any other catering people would have done. They didn't let us lift a finger and we were able to truly enjoy along with our family the once in a lifetime day. She made us feel like friends not just clients, we were taken care of for sure on one of the most important days of our lives. Thank you so much Sabrina & the Nook ! You were all fantastic! We will for sure use you in the future, I am Nook hooked !

I am so impressed with the quality of Lety Sanchez' cooking. Her food is definitely not the typical Mexican fare we think of. It is inventive, yet with a traditional quality that reminds her of her home and family. She is excited about her flavors and creations. Her baking is interesting, attractive and delicious. Her sauces are distinct and fresh. Her passion for cooking is evident. I work with her twice a week in a completely different circumstance and have always found her to be punctual, extremely cheerful, dedicated and very enjoyable to be around.

We used Horchata LLC to cater for a group of people that we were presenting to. There were about 15 people in attendance. Every single person was highly impressed with the quality of food as well as the taste. There was plenty of food left over. The team at Horchata set up everything for us. I would recommend them to cater for any of your catering needs. I'm looking forward to using them in the future.

I catered with Horchata for my WIfe's 40th surprise party. Food was amazing and we even had left for couple of days. The chef was punctual and even made Margaritas for the party with no extra charge. Strongly recommend Horchata. Every one loved the food/setup. If you are looking for a hassle free experience with awesome food, Horchata is the way to go...

We lived in Chicago for ten of the last 11 years, moving to Shelbyville this summer. One of the first things my husband wanted to find was good BBQ, and we did! We absolutely love Big Red's BBQ. I believe we have had it all, the brisket, fall of the bone ribs, pulled pork, rib tips, and smoked chicken, plus mac and cheese and baked beans. Not only is it phenomenal, it is consistent. If you have a chance, catch them at an event in Shelbyville or check them out at FaceBook on when and where they will be next so you can get a taste of the menu for your next event! I cannot wait to have them cater for my family when they come up this summer! They keep saying they have to "taste" for themselves that the BBQ can be that good, and they will!

Big Red's catered our daughter's 1st birthday party and we could not have been happier!

D. was more than accommodating for a pretty tough menu. He was sure to communicate everything with all of the pricing, so we knew exactly what we were paying for. He was able to beat competitors pricing since this is a small side job and he has little to no overhead. We will definitely hire him again!
