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.

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!

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.

Leigh is a jewel! She listened to what we needed for our daughter's wedding, and went over, above and beyond! From the cake tasting to the finished project, we were kept informed, and she even sent pictures of the cake as it was progressing. She gifted the bride and groom with a sketch she had made before painting the cake. Our theme was Legend of Zelda, which we thought would be difficult, but she was a real trooper. She researched and made everything work. The finished project, which was a gorgeous reveal cake, was the centerpiece of the reception and almost took away from the bride and groom, it was so amazing. Numerous people came to me to tell me what an outstanding job she had done, including one who was a professional chef who wanted me to let her know that she was tremendously impressed. Not only that, but we did everything long distance, as mom and dad of the bride live in Colorado and the bride and groom are in Texas. What a shame I don't live closer! She would get ALL of our business from now on, but I'm sure that the bride/groom and all of the Texas family will use Leigh for every special occasion from now on! She's also so friendly and personable, she takes an interest in what she's doing and in the family she's doing it for. Super, super job, Leigh! We can't thank you enough for the amazing job and effort you put into our daughter's special day.

Tony and his crew at Chefs Like it Hot Catering did an excellent job at our wedding, bringing out beautiful appetizer spreads, drinks, and a wonderful buffet with delicious food! We received a lot of positive reviews from our guests regarding the beef brisket, chicken, and vegetable lasagne. And the steamed vegetables were very flavorful, not plain at all. Tony made it a point to come out and make sure we were all happy with everything during the meal, and his staff was very attentive. I will be recommending his catering in the future!

We hired Lynn to make my wedding cake as well as the Grooms cake and we had an excellent experience! She first met with us for a tasting and we fell in love with the champagne icing! The cake was moist and flavor was comparable to some of the high end bakeries we had tastings at, but her pricing is WAY more reasonable! We decided to do 3 different flavors on the bridal/ grooms cake and she was more than happy to accommodate that and even suggested which frosting flavors we should get with each cake flavor. As for the design of the cake, I showed her a couple of pictures of what I liked, which was a simple white cake with some floral and swirl piping and she nailed it! Even more impressive was what she did for the grooms cake! My husband (fiancé at the time) just described to her what his vision was and we were so impressed with how it looked when we saw it at our wedding! My only complaint would be that the cake at the wedding was slightly dry compared to the cake we had at the tasting, but I suppose such is the case with most bakeries! We were very pleased with Lynn at Bake My Day Bakery and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a beautiful cake at a reasonable price!

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.

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!
