Joyce and her team did a spectacular job at my wedding. They are knowledgeable about the catering business and handled my event with ease. I’ve never had great food at a wedding, but their food was absolutely delicious. Everyone was impressed. Not only did they shine in the kitchen, but their kindness and warmth gave such a positive energy to our wedding. They went above and beyond my expectations; and for that I’m truly thankful.

JC Cooks Catering did a great job at my husband’s 50th Birthday party. Chef Joyce was wonderful to work with. She was efficient and responded any time I had questions or concerns regarding my catering needs. The chicken fajitas and beef tacos were great and everyone enjoyed the sides. I look forward to having Chef Joyce cater another family event.

JC Cook's really help me out of a bind. My caterer backed out at the last minute. Got a hold of JC Cook and they respond immediately and I was shocked that they took the job because it was so last minute. And I appreciate the fact that they made the meal so fantastic. The potato salad was exactly the way my mother and my grandmother used to make. I could not have done this without her thank you for your team and we really appreciate it.

Details: Wedding • Dinner • Dessert • Alcoholic drinks • Barbecue • Plated meal • Yes, full service • Community center • Yes, full kitchen • 50 - 59 guests • Disposable plates, utensils, and cups • Paper napkins • Standard (basic ingredients)
