    Best catering company in Middle TN!

    We just had Actual Food as our caterer this past weekend and through a postponement due to covid, specific requirements I had, and a love for supporting local, this caterer went above and beyond our expectations! We cannot thank them enough. The food was excellent and the experience of planning and taste testing our wedding menu was just as superb! The Mac and Cheese Bar was a hit!

    Actual Food is really good.

    Actual Food made our wedding day greater than we could ever imagine. Through a pandemic, Luke worked with us through all the details of making our wedding safe and fun for everyone. The food was INCREDIBLE, we received so many compliments from all the guests. And the day was made by the incredible servers and bartenders employed by Actual Food. We are so grateful to Actual Food and Luke and wouldn’t have chosen anyone else.

    Deliciousness

    WOW, Actual Food Nashville, WOW! AFN came highly recommended and certainly did NOT disappoint. I expected the food to be good however it was amazing. What I did not anticipate was the superb professionalism and flexibility in this difficult time of a global pandemic. With Luke and his team, a great load was lifted off of myself (MOB), as they saw to it that each and every need was not only met but exceeded throughout the planning process as well as to surpass our high expectation on the evening of what ended up being a dream wedding event.
