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.

Our first experience with Chef Cassy was fantastic! Her service, her food and her attention to my client's was above admirable. We especially appreciated her meal preparation. The food was extremely good, with all of the little touches one expect from a chef, not from a catering experience. We have already contracted with Chef Cassy for our next event and are planning on contracting with her deep into the future. It's five stars from Tom and Tammy Holland and THE Group, Inc. Thanks Chef!

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

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.

Words can't really express how perfect Chefs like It Hot catering was. Chef Tony was the friendliest, warmest, most genuine, and helpful person to cater my wife’s birthday party. He made everything less stressful, more beautiful, and constantly re-assured me that everything would go smoothly--and it did Not ONE thing went wrong, not one person went hungry, everyone talked about how DELICIOUS the food was, and how beautiful the venue looked. From place settings to timing, to just overall presence, Chefs like It hot was like a one stop shop for everything I needed and I didn't have to look anywhere else. We got SO many compliments on food and decor, and to top it off you can tell he absolutely loves what he does. I give him the highest rating possible and my wife and our families absolutely agree.

Chef Jennifer was absolutely amazing and a pleasure to work with. I had 70 people at my house for my husband's birthday and my guests were blown away by the food. Chef J visited my home to help plan lay out and went above and beyond with the menu. Excellent! I hope I can use her again in the future!

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!

Chef Leo catered our small Christmas party. She was like our own personal chef throughout the party. The food was well presented and tasted amazing. The guests loved the menu and kept coming back for more. I definitely will refer her to friends and if she is available will use her for some up coming events in the new year.
