We loved Ed! Not only was the food DELICIOUS, but the service was outstanding. Ed is a real people person, and every visit we had felt comfortable. Ed and Amazing Caterers catered for my wedding on Oct. 7th 2016. All my guests loved the food and variety Amazing Caterers offer, and I even had the chefs checking on myself; always asking if I needed anything throughout the night. Ed also went above and beyond for us, and got us a quote and set up for flatware 3 days before the wedding when a crisis had hit! Thank you Ed, and thank you Amazing Caterers!!

We hired Marc for a private awards ceremony for the National Boys Scout of America. His BBQ is sensational, the smoked chicken was so tender. His BBQ should be in everyone's house and I really enjoyed the Caesar salad he prepared. As one chef (including my staff) to another we recognize true talent and all of here at WPG salute a true artist in the BBQ meats. We look forward to another fine menu prepared by him.

Buddy did a great job! The food was delicious and delivered on time with a smile. Buddy made me look good at our family reunion with his home cooking delivered to my sister's kitchen for the assembled aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, cousins. Buddy was so easy to deal with - sight unseen - that I began to wonder if it was too good to be true. Would he deliver? The answer is yes. A real win-win that I recommend highly. Many thanks, Buddy & family.

Luke cooked for us as we celebrated a milestone birthday dinner for 8 adults. He responded promptly with my online inquiry and we talked by phone later that day. Luke sent me several suggested menus and we tweaked a menu that was perfect for our dinner. Luke arrived promptly and made himself at home in the kitchen. Every bite of our 4 course meal was delicious and had great plate presentation. Luke loaded the dishwasher, washed the dishes, swept the floor and had leftovers packed up and put in the fridge while we enjoyed our dessert. Having a personal chef come to our house was a gift for the birthday girl and she was thrilled!

This review is long long over due! Chef Cassy came to my home to cook for me, my family, and friends as a suprise for my birthday! I came home and she and her staff were already at work in my kitchen. The first thing I noted was that she and her staff were professionally dressed. I loved having a real life Chef in my house cooking for me!! I also noted that although she was cooking several dishes everything seemed to have it's schedule and the process ran smoothly. As it should since Chef Cassy is a professional chef. The food was delicious to say the least. The wonton stuffed with collards and ham are the BEST!! She also prepared salad and a grilled chicken Alfredo dish. I know chicken Alfredo seems like the standard run of the mill dish. Because to me, this dish seems standard. Enough so that, myself along with all of my guests couldn't stop raving about how hers really set a new bar for Grilled Chicken Alfredo! Even the salad which was again a seemingly simple dish was notably delicious and stood out amongst others I have eaten. As far as professionalism and interaction goes, I must say that Chef Cassy remained very professional. She and her staff stuck to what they came to do. But my friends and family being a bit more informal engaged Chef Cassy with conversation, questions, and raves. She blended very well into our relaxed environment as well. We all felt very comfortable with Chef Cassy and would certainly have her back again. I would recommend her to anyone looking for her services and suggest her to anyone who wasn't particularly looking. The whole experience was one I will not soon forget. Thank you Chef Cassy!!!

My wife and I purchased dinner plates from Meat and Greet BBQ at an open market event, It was great! Now we have Mr. Carroll cater our shop BBQ's. He offers your choice of meats, side dishes, condiments and beverages. The price is good and the BBQ is excellent.

Chef Jared came through for me BIG TIME! I called him on a Tuesday night at 6:00pm for a catering event on Wednesday at 11:30am for 35 people! Chef Jared came through with BBQ none the less. We had so many compliments from our customers on the food alone. We have his number now and we will definitely will be using Chef Jared for all of our business events along with some personal events.

Our Open House and Ribbon Cutting was a huge success with the help of Paperie! Kathy is so easy to work with, beautiful floral arrangements and scrumptious foods that accommodated everyone's palettes! The 2 signature drinks she suggested were a perfect fit for the occasion. We will definitely work with her again for any future events we may have!

I just started using Carolyn to deliver dinner for 5 one night a week. We had a our first delivery today and it was OUTSTANDING! Everyone loved their food and the portions were big enough that we have some left overs for tomorrow. She is great to deal with and so nice and friendly in person. If you are looking for a personal chef then look no further. So happy we connected with her!

The tasting for the event was outstanding. Such an amazing presentation on the plate of the entree. I was also impressed by the chef who took the time to serve us himself and give a detail description of the meal. Our sales contact Lisa was amazing as well very knowledgeable and professional. Will definitely recommend them to others.

Chef LaRon genuinely cares about his craft. By the first bite you can tell that he’s poured out his heart and soul into the food on your plate. His style beats massed produced food by a mile, and his quality stands up to any restaurant I’ve eaten at here in Dallas. The wide variety of food, from chicken and waffles to garden salads, shows off his array of talents and willingness to venture outside of the norm. I can’t wait until my next meal with this exceptionally talented chef.

I arranged for Cari to host a cooking event for my husband's birthday. My husband loves to cook, so instead of using her as a personal chef, she taught my husband and my mother-in-law how to make homemade ravioli and cannoli. She was incredibly patient and helpful and they thoroughly enjoyed the evening. In the end, I enjoyed the dinner. Big thanks to Cari!

We had a delicious 3 course meal cooked in our house by chef Connor for my husband’s 40th birthday. The risotto he cooked is probably one of the best i’ve had in my life. It was great watching him cook in front of us. He was also super friendly and we enjoyed his conversation very much, We’lll definitely use his services again in the future!

I wanted to learn how to cook so I could make fancy dinners for my wife. Randy was able to teach me how to cook even though I have zero skills in the kitchen. He is an excellent teacher, patient, and always willing to help. He started by teaching proper techniques and now after 2 weeks I feel like I can cook anything. If you're looking to learn how to cook or just want a private chef I highly recommend Randy.
