Writing as a reference to JJ who has been a fixture for our law firm as a bartender and food service assistant. My wife and I have also sought JJ’s help with entertainment in our home. He is truly a jack of all trades in that regard. He arrives promptly, dressed appropriately and gets to work setting up whatever needs to be; tables, chairs, bar and even assists if we need help with final touches on the food preparation. JJ’s demeanor as a bartender is perfect; cordial, but not intrusive with guests. He is great in helping with the post party clean up. His rates are reasonable. We will continue to seek him out for help here at our law firm and especially at our home. Rich Terapak

JJ catered for my son's Eagle Scout Court of Honor. These are open-ended affairs where it's impossible to get an accurate headcount. JJ did a great job! He was prompt and efficient, his food was really good, and the price was reasonable. Thanks to Jim I could relax and enjoy the occasion.

JJ is a party savior!! From baking and setting out my food to passing out drinks, to putting coats away, and cleaning up he does it all!! I was actually able to enjoy my party because of him! I would highly recommend and would definitely use for all future parties!! Exceeded expectations!!

Overall it went well. The food was delivered on time and Daisy and her son set everything up for me. They were very friendly and professional, and the food was very good! Their pulled pork was so awesome, I just wish I would ordered more of their specialty meats instead of ordering half hamburgers and half pulled pork! I would recommend calling them for your next party!

Everything was great! Daisy was there on time to deliver the food and help set up for our event. Everyone LOVED the food, it was fantastic. My only suggestion would be to have labels for the items, or at least make it known that labels are not provided, so that I could've made some in advance and brought them to the event. Other than that, everything was great!

THIS IS AN EASY CHOICE-PICK THEM! The Modern Southern Table was amazing to work with, the food was so good (and we were feeding picky high school students) and the people were so kind! We really enjoyed working with them for our prom and hope to book them next year too!

Chef at the Door catered my son's rehearsal dinner at a local brewery with no kitchen facilities. I was concerned that would be an issue but Jauna had no problem with it. She is so accommodating, personalizing the meal just for us. Jauna was easy to work with and the food was amazing. I truly felt like I was working with a good friend as she offered suggestions that seemed so in line with what my son and his new wife wanted. She was very attentive at the event, making sure every need was met even when it didn't pertain to her services. I have worked with many vendors in the past and Jauna is definitely one of the best! I highly recommend Chef at the Door for any occasion and I hope to work with Jauna again in the future!

Love these guys! The Food is spectacular! You can get your street meat with a twist! One of my favorite things about seeing these guys around downtown (besides the food) is the price! For how amazing their food is you would think it was going to be super expensive, but its anywhere from 6-10 bucks! Another one of the great things about these guys, is they have a vegetarian option! I can't tell you how many times I'm downtown late night wanting a snack and the only thing these vendors have is meat... But have NO FEAR the Slamwich Brothers are here! And they will hook you up with the MiMi burger which is a veggie burger loaded with toppings on an amazing brioche bun!! Last but not least you can't beat the customer service. These guys are just genuine bros, making a living at something they love to do! So don't be scared to spark a conversation with these guys, they're outgoing and always up to get feedback from their customers. So if you're looking for some great funkin food, or looking for someone to cater your grad parties, block parties, work parties, etc., these guys are a phenomenal choice!

Slamwich Bros came to a neighborhood party. They had no min sale requirement which wouldn't have mattered in the end because they actually ran out of the wild west sandwich it was that good! Also, they accepted credit cards which I was shocked as a lot of these mobile food vendors are cash only. I definately want to try out other sandwiches and look forward to having them at another get together in the near future.

The Slamwiches are BEYOND amazing- they are addicting!! -The service is fantastic and the quality of the ingredients and creativity of the ingredients paired together is what really sets Slamwich Brothers apart from other food trucks- a must try for any foodies out there in the Columbus Area!

The food was wonderful. Everything was prepared to perfection. The pulled pork and brisket were flavorful and juicy. I have already recommended this caterer and will use them again. Mr. Yeager took care of everything from salad to the entrée to dessert. I usually prepare all the food for special occasions, but this particular event was hectic and left no time for food prep. Mr. Yeager took care of setting everything up and then broke everything down after. I was able to enjoy family and friends without any stress and the cost was very affordable.

Robert catered my husband's 50th surprise birthday party for 40 guests at our home in Westerville. His service, presentation and food were all exceptional. He made our special event unforgettable and all of our friends and family raved about how great the food was. Robert prepared lobster tail, shrimp and chicken Chardonnay plus sides. He interacted and mingled with family and guests and has a great and warm personality. I would highly recommend him to all our friends and family. Great job Robert!

Robert did a fantastic job! At the last minute I had to increase number of guests, changing from 60 to 100 , and he pulled it off! We had food left over, so plenty of food. The stuffed mushrooms were the favorite.

My husband and I hired RahZae Simmone's to cater our fifth wedding anniversary. Our experience was absolutely wonderful starting with the initial planning of our anniversary celebration. Chef Francis was extremely attentive to my wishes for this event. The process of planning all the way to the evening of the event was executed flawlessly. Our guests were totally amazed and thoroughly impressed. The food was absolutely delectable! My husband and I would gladly spend the 1300.00 again and we now recommend RahZae Simmone's to all of our friends and family!

I had a very short timeline to cater my New Year's Party (it started as a small gathering and turned into a full blown 40+ party the weekend before New Years Eve) so I posted my needs to Thumbtack. Leah responded to my request in less than 15 minutes after I posted it and worked with me to determine an affordable solution that fit my timeline and budget. She was honest and fair with her quote and even worked with me to find ways to save costs. She delivered the food on time and allowed me to use her chafing dishes and serving equipment as well as fuel to keep everything hot. Our party was Gatsby-themed, so she suggested a 1920's style glazed ham entree/side combo with potatoes and carrots in a delicious sauce as well as another dish of chicken and rice with veggies and asparagus in a rosemary butter sauce. The food was also presented very well, and her attention to detail was great. We also had 2 large servings of Walforf Salad that was a big hit as well. Overall, the food was delicious, it was delivered on time and best of all it was all done with basically a 1 day notice. I highly recommend Leah's services to anyone looking for delicious food at a fair price. I would not hesitate to hire her again for future parties because everyone at my party only had great things to say about all the food.

Leah and her staff provided an excellent menu for a party of 35 employees. The food was well prepared and at the right temperature when served. She set the event up for us and made sure that everything discussed was present and on time. Her friendly manner and professionalism made I a pleasure to have engaged her services. I look forward to an opportunity to utilize her catering services again in the future.

I hired Troncone and Perry to cater my wedding this September. It was a great experience! We had a backyard wedding and Charlie was extremely helpful in planning the dinner. He was very friendly, punctual, knowledgeable, and even offered to pick up anything non-food related that we might need just to be helpful! We ordered the BBQ brisket and it was a hit! Our guests were raving about the food to us, and we were just happy to have some leftovers the next day:) It definitely put my mind to rest knowing we had such professionals handling the food- they took care of everything and I would hire them again in a heartbeat!

Troncone & Perry catered my daughter's wedding and we were very impressed with the outcome. Delicious food from the heart and stellar service to go with it. We received numerous compliments on how delicious the pork, chicken, potatoes and bread were. The servers were very helpful and courteous. Glad to have such a great group of people to make the wedding day a less stressful one.

My experience with Rachael's Dessert House was amazing, from the moment I met Rachael until the night she catered my 50th Birthday Party! Rachael is very professional and knowledgeable about the selections she provides. She was always available for questions and also flexible with the changes I needed to make. Now on to the food, it was the most delicious soul food I have tasted. It was seasoned well and served hot and fresh. My guests had many wonderful comments about the food as well as their interactions with Rachael. If you are looking for a professional to cater your event that serves excellent food, this is the place. I will definitely use her again!

Food was delicious! She's very nice. The Only negative thing I can say is they ran out of sides for My last 2 tables of 9 people. We had a contract for 105 people 10 Who didn't show and there still wasn't enough for everyone. A little disappointed by this.

I own a mobile DJ business, and have been at multiple events where Lisa Nelson and Just For the Occasion have catered. I've always been impressed with the overall presentation and professionalism shown. Most recently I experienced JFTO's services at a wedding and reception held at a community shelter house. I had attended other events at this venue and didn't expect much. Lisa and her staff transformed the place into a very elegant setting. Decorations were on point, and the food was delicious Definitely one of the best in the business!
