    Amazing Food!

    The food was amazing! It was all made so well and reminded me of a home cooked meal, which is exactly what we wanted! She even had our plates made for us when it came time for us to eat!

    Loved the food!

    The highlight of this catering is the taste of the food! We got so many compliments. She was punctual and had signs for the options. I also loved she prepared a plate for my husband and I. My only negative feedback would be that she said she would clear the tables of the dirty plates but did not.

    Great food poor attitude

    Her food is absolutely amazing! During the tasting everything went perfect but we it came down to the big day she was very rude to my family and guests her servers were nothing but professional. Family is everything to us so this has left a bad taste on our mouth about her. We paid a lot of money and didn’t deserve to be treated so poorly.

    big Fatty's catering's reply:

    Oh, wow hate to hear this
    It's really hard to hear criticism but I have to accept that someone didnt feel valued. I am extremely busy the day of an event and try to stay behind the scenes and let my staff and food represent my company. The best I can do is say thank you for your honesty and I hope to be more engaging in the future. I have nothing but great thoughts of you and your family.
