Yes, they ARE truly Amazing Caterers! Ed and Ann catered a party I hosted recently for about 70 people and they are absolutely the best! They prepared incredible food for the party and they truly create an event for you! Ed and Ann are very experienced in the catering business and provided many wonderful recommendations for us about the menu and drink selections. They are extremely thorough and one of their managers did an on-site visit to our venue one week prior to the party so that they would be prepared and know how to set up the event. Their team members who worked at our party were remarkable--personable, professional, and an absolute joy to work with! Amazing Caterers does more than prepare exceptional food, they create an event for you so that you can relax and enjoy your time with your guests. In fact, Ed explained to me that one of his goals as a caterer is to run an event so that the host or hostess is stress free and feels like a guest at their own party. Believe me, they succeeded! If you are looking for a phenomenal catering team in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, look no further...Ann, Ed and their team at Amazing Caterers are your solution. We are planning another event in a few months and I wouldn't think of calling anyone else. Thanks for making our party such an incredible success!

It has been almost a year and my family and friends still are bragging about the best brisket they had ever eaten. My dad I think stalks the sweet guy they call Tater (LOL - love the name!). We must have had 20 plus catering tastings and were exhausted over bad food or sub-par standard chicken at $35 a plate. We had a huge wedding and needed good food but not costing the price of my Nissan. So finally we tried Wedding Wire one more time and found Tatering. Marc was sooooo responsive and seriously answered all my 2000 questions I had over the phone. I must have called him like 4 times. He was patient and answered them all and even offered some great ideas on my timeline. So the big surprise was the quote, my finance and I were skeptical of this because he was more like $24 a plate but it included the dishware, linens, staff and food (meal and apps). Now this all changed with finally meeting him and his chef in Carrollton ( I believe they have moved though). They were so both very nice and Marc talked with us for 2 hours again which was so reassuring. He showed us everything right there during our free tasting (yes free!!). Now the best part... the brisket!! His brisket was so incredibly juicy and not dry. Has some fat on it and comes with his signature sweet barbecue sauce with I think some kind of soda flavor in it. Ok the stuff is to DIE for!! Hubby took a bottle home with him and covered up all my cooking with it, because its so damn good. Now we had his mac n cheese and garlic mashed potatoes which are both very good. We knew this was the right place, signed the contract and paid them right there. So the day of my day was stressful until I heard Tatering arrived, I kept thinking of the barbecue until dinner time. People is was so damn good the second time we ate it and yes his staff had to go boxes made for us which we ate on the plane later. Love you guys!

Luke did a great job catering a sit-down dinner for my daughter's bachelorette weekend. He responded to my initial inquiry promptly and was easy to communicate with via e-mail and text as we planned the menu. The girls wanted to float around the pool and enjoy a few adult beverages during the day, but wanted a restaurant-quality meal that evening without having to worry about dressing up or driving. Luke arrived promptly and served a great meal with a choice of lamb chops or filet mignon as the primary proteins. The meal included a sushi appetizer, salads & sides, and a yummy dessert of creme brulee. He cooked, cleaned, and rolled with the punches with this rowdy group of 8 ladies and they all had a great time and enjoyed the meal. We will definitely hire Luke again for other dinner parties at the house.

Melinda and Whitney arrived on time and were ready to do whatever we needed. They were friendly and conscientious about their work. They kept the bar area clean and kept the line of attendants moving along quickly. My family and friends all commented on what a great job they were doing and inquired about where I found them. They followed the TABC rules as well as the guidelines outlined by the venue. I would definitely recommend them for an event and will call on them again if I need bar service.

Jim helped me cater a barbeque for a company appreciation lunch. We found his website and were impressed by the clear, to-the-point menu and pricing options. He was easy to reach and answered all our questions professionally and quickly. On the day of the barbeque, I could smell the delicious food from all the way in the parking lot. He served about 60 guests a spread of brisket, sausage, hot dogs, hamburgers, with all the fixins included. The taste was delicious! I don't think I've tasted better barbeque! I'd highly recommend Meat & Greet for any company or private event. Thanks Jim! :) - Hannah K, Sigma Relocation Group

I work in sales leadership for a Fortune 100 global software company and hired Jared Pierre to cater both food & bar for a Customer & Prospect reception we held at our office. Prior to the event Jared was terrific at offering food suggestions for tray service hors d'oeuvres and he had plenty of beverage options from the bar, both alcoholic and non. His staff was professional and courteous, set up and clean up went well, and we will use Jared Pierre for future events.

Highly recommended! They provided my wife and I with everything I needed for my event for 800 people. They also gave me a really great deal and were very flexible with my budget. On thumbtack I went through many catering companies and all of them were either overpriced or the food quality was below average. In addition I loved how they provided me a beverage bar with Hibiscus based drinks and organic lemonades. I especially loved their Lavender Cheesy Bread and Cherry Lime Hibiscus. Servers and Owners were prompt and the bartending service specialized in specialty cocktails that were smoked or traditional. Either way Spiced Lavender Catering is very professional and very fast to respond on any questions that I had. Also they are great for casual or high end venues that include weddings and corporate events. I cant thank them enough for saving me alot of stress at the last moment and they exceeded my expectation in everything from food to the exceptional service. Again I also cant thank them enough for being flexible with my timing and budget. Thanks Chef Nina.

Integrity Events & Design catered my Halloween Party one year. They did a marvelous job with food, fixings, and taking care of all the guests. Constantly making sure food was available, Mixing cocktails, and even helped with clean up throughout the event and afterwords. My guests and I were delighted with the food and the amazing drinks mixed by A.J. Having them at the party made it run so much smoother and took the stress out of me doing it all.

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.

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.

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.

How much should catering cost for a wedding?

The cost of wedding catering will reflect the level of service, the menu you choose, the luxury you desire and the number of guests you invite. Where you live also plays a major role in your wedding catering costs. The regional cost to do business and local cost of food will affect your catering bill. There is no set price for wedding catering, because each wedding and each menu is different. This is why many caterers provide a per-person price. This allows you to break down what it costs to feed each person based on the menu you want. Working with your caterer, you can adjust menu items, service level and more to accommodate your budget and guest count. Keep in mind that wedding catering costs are not just for the food. The bill reflects all the components that go into commercial food catering: a commercial kitchen, ingredients, staff, insurance, marketing and more. Here are some examples of average costs:

  • Three-course plated meal, moderately upscale, for 125 in Los Angeles: $14,000. Because of staffing costs, a true plated meal costs about twice as much as a staff-assisted buffet.
  • Buffet meal, standard menu, for 100 in Los Angeles: $5,000.
  • Per-person cost for hors d'oeuvres, dinner and nonalcoholic beverages: $24–$37, depending on menu selection, in Southern California.
  • Drop off prepared food for 50: $1,000 in North Carolina. Price does not include any service, setup or breakdown.

How do you serve food at a wedding?

Food service at your wedding will affect your catering costs and influence the atmosphere of the reception. Buffet style is more informal; plated meals are a bit fancier; family style encourages sharing. Read about the different food service styles to select your preferred wedding catering choice.

  • Buffet: Caterers can drop off prepared foods for a DIY and budget-friendly buffet option where you set everything up and food is entirely self-service. For a fuller-service buffet, the caterers set up food, oversee the buffet throughout the event, and clean up afterwards. For food only, prices per person might average $16-$18, while a service buffet may start around $20-$22 per person. Adding food stations can increase per-person costs by at least $3-$5.
  • Family style: Servers bring large platters of food to guest tables in courses. It’s less formal (and less expensive) than a plated meal, but more formal and higher-cost than a buffet. You’ll need large tables to accommodate the platters, so plan accordingly when renting furniture for the event.
  • Plated: A plated event is a formal dining experience; waitstaff serve your seated guests for each course, fill their drinks, and attend to them throughout the dinner. A plated dinner is typically the most expensive option for both food and service.
  • Food trucks: Similar to buffets, with food trucks your guests get their own food and bring it to their table. A food truck gives a relaxed and playful vibe to your reception.
  • Cocktail reception: If you don’t want a formal seated dinner, you can opt for a wide assortment of passed appetizers at an extended cocktail hour reception.
