    Amazing Food

    Carlos and Doug did an amazing job at setting up and serving. They both worked so hard and were so friendly with the guests. My, person of contact, Eric was not as friendly or helpful. He made me feel that I did not spend enough money for him to even take the time to introduce himself to us. we almost went to another caterer because of him. Glad we didn't, the food was over the top. I cannot say enough about how Carlos and Robert took care of everything and everyone!!

    Affordable Catering's reply:

    We are so happy Carlos and Doug did an amazing job. We appreciate all of your feedback. Our entire Affordable Catering family wished you the best in the future.
    Thank You,
    Eric
