    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 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.

    I recently had RahZae Simmone cater mt wedding reception for 180 guest. It was a plated dinner and i must say the experience was outstanding. There were some hiccups on my end, but the chef was very understanding. I would like to add that i was a bridezilla, but the professionalism still remaind the same, you made my night.

    We had an outdoor, summer wedding and chose Road Hog Willy's to do the catering. The food was absolutely outstanding and his catering prices are competitive and fair.....We tried so many different BBQ's from several companies to get the best taste and price. We made the right choice because everyone loved the BBQ and side dishes. Road Hog Willy's will not disappoint no matter what the occasion.

    Jennifer and Brad catered to our Administrative Appreciation Day. They brought in vegetarian egg strata as well as ham and cheese strata. Along with that there were fresh fruit, sausage (pork and turkey), roasted potatoes, and monkey bread. Jennifer and Brad were kind, hospitable, and accommodating. Everything was fantastic and they made sure the chafing dishes were replenished. However, there were few issues that were minuscule and didn't parade the morning.

    Carrie and her staff catered my daughters wedding reception. She served an incredible meal to nearly 250 people. The food was delicious and plentiful. The plated dinner was served very quickly. Guests were impressed at how fast all tables were served. Carrie was so easy to work with and accommodated every request my daughter and I had. We recommend Carrie and will use her any time we need anything catered. ~M Helm

    We used World Wide Catering for a baby shower and they were fantastic! It was a Cinco De Mayo theme so we had a food truck with Mexican inspired dishes. The food was delicious and the staff was super friendly. The event ended up running later than expected and they were happy to accommodate us by staying. I would recommend them and their food truck services to anyone in need of catering an event. Dishes, silverware and napkins were all provided, the menu selection was just right, and communication and scheduling with them is a breeze! It was nice to not have to clean up for once, and their prices are beyond reasonable. Thanks so much for making the baby shower and awesome event!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do you find a good caterer?

    Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

    If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

    Do you tip a wedding caterer?

    Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

    How much does wedding catering cost per person?

    Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

    How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

    Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

    Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

    What should you look for in a caterer?

    A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

    • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
    • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
    • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
    • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
    • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
    • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.
