    Luau Event

    We had a Luau event and can say how wonderful they were to work with.
    The servicing & bar staff was amazing.
    The food and Bat items we picked on their Luau menu was delicious and everything they said they would do they did.
    Plan on using them again for our event in the future

    Amazing service!

    Affordable catering catered my wedding this past Saturday. They are truly the best around, the service and food was nothing short of amazing. My guests raved about the food all night. From the start of planning to the very end they made it so easy to plan. I didn鈥檛 have to stress about anything. They are so helpful with last minute questions, changes and accommodations. The bartender was great as well as the service staff. We would 10/10 choose Affordable Catering in the future. Thank you for making my wedding perfect!

    Affordable Catering's reply:
