I approached Zacki on the late side to cater a surprise birthday party for my wife for a medium size guest list. This party would serve appetizers, have an open bar, a slide show, champagne toast with a dinner course, serve desserts and last for 4+ hours with DJ’ed music for dancing. The job was in North Raleigh and she was located in Durham. Zacki was wonderful to work with. She quickly hammered out the cost for the surprise birthday party so I had some numbers to work with. She went above and beyond in the way she handled the details of the catering job. She deftly managed the changing guest list size (even until the midnight hour). She artfully created the table decorations and settings (they matched the cake from Sugarland and the balloons from the banquet hall). The table decorations she created were wonderful and were very creative as was the place settings with genuine china, place mats, wine and champagne glasses with dinner cutlery. She also created food that the diverse guest list would all appreciate and enjoy. The appetizers were exquisite as was the food (I went back for seconds as did many others). Many of the guest remarked how her tasty the food was and how much they savored it and the entire festivities. Everything went as planned and Zacki did an awesome job – hers would be a tough act to beat!

I had a casual office work party at my house. I wanted to do burgers and brats, but didn't want to spend my time at the grill. Lamar came and brought everything needed for the party and manned the grill, so that I could entertain my guests. The food was great and the service was perfect. I will use Lamar again for my catering needs.

Lewis was fantastic for our wedding! The food was delicious, the service was wonderful, and He and his wife were both a joy to work with. They were friendly, prompt, and personable. They surpassed my expectations and helped make our special day a wonderful experience for us and our guests. We will certainly be keeping them in mind for any events we might host in the future!

I recommend highly Maggie and Comfort Cuisine. She has helped me with dinners for business associates and all kinds of family gatherings including milestone birthdays, engagement parties, and most recently a welcome party before my daughter's wedding. It is cheaper and better than going to a restaurant. All I have to do is get the house clean and decide on a menu, and Maggie takes over. No worries. The food is delicious and her flower arrangements are incredible. Her helpers are efficient and so very nice to work with. For easy, wonderful, at home catered dinners and parties, there is no one better than Maggie and Comfort Cuisine!!

Joe and his cohort Leo catered my wife's birthday for 60 guests. The menu was appropriately extravagant and well executed. Couldn't have asked for better.

I have used Terri and her Food Fairies for 5 years or more. She and her team always provide incredibly delicious food at an incredible price. I throw components at her like tight schedule, and needing all local and organic food, with mostly vegetarian and vegan thrown in to boot, and with energy and positive enthusiasm she delivers. She provides recipes after the fact (and the groups she caters for me almost always want them -- even the carnivores in the group find themselves asking for the vegie recipes), and has worked in difficult conditions, such as kitchens without all the nice amenities, with the results still being stellar.

    Charlene asked that I place a review on her Thumbtack – where do I begin. I have worked with Char’s Catering for several of my events. My first encounter was a wedding in 2012. I was allowed to join the bride and groom for their taste testing and the food was outstanding. Nothing was too salty or over/under cooked. We had baked tilapia – delicious. Our next encounter was for a retirement celebration in Reidsville in 2013. Yes she travels. Again the food was absolutely delicious and her staff was awesome as well. I remember the salad being the bomb! I love salads and it just stood out. I’m not sure if it was the dressing or the freshness of the salad itself. Then she catered for a fund raising event in October 2015 for me. The food was incredible, even a guest caterer asked who she was. Her staff were efficient and very helpful. Our most recent taste testing was in April 2016 for an upcoming event in October. Boy, the food was once again outstanding and prepared differently. She also offered desserts. Our client had a field day with the desserts. She has a glowing personality and is very personable and professional. She is organized and timely which is a must in this industry. She is neat, clean and works hard to please her clients. I’ve seen her in action and been a client of hers. When selecting a caterer, I think about what event I’m doing and if that caterer can meet the theme of the event and prepare & present good tasting food for the guests. Char’s catering can do this, she meets the clients requests. She is my go to caterer. She comes highly recommended.
