Best Caterers EVER!!!
Tori and Ricardo are the best. and I REALLY mean that!! Our phone conversations about the menu made us really look forward to a tasting with Carrasco (our first tasting with another company went horribly). Due to covid, we had to wait a while, but it was worth the wait!!! We not only became clients with them over our tasting, but friends as well! We felt like we had known them for years!!
Tori was super communicative the entire planning process and really made me feel at ease. Ricardo is an amazing Chef and basically an artist with food!!! We still have people telling us how awesome the food was 3 weeks after the wedding!!!
We will definitely recommend them to friends in the future and will use them for other catering needs. You will not regret choosing Carrasco catering to cater your event.Sent on 11/13/2020

Perfect start to a destination wedding weekend.
Carrasco Catering recently hosted a welcome dinner for our daughter & son-in-law’s wedding in Asheville, NC. Tori was such a joy to work with every step of the way and was very patient with us as we struggled to decide on the perfect format for the event. We finally planned a short, but very sweet cocktail and hors d’oeuvres party at their restaurant, Polanco, and what a wonderful time we all had! Owner/chef Ricardo came up with a menu of delicious & creative appetizers that were perfect for a mix and mingle party and were complemented by a fine selection of house wines and beers and their excellent house-made margaritas! We look forward to visiting Asheville again when the COVID crisis is over and their restaurant reopens so we can enjoy a full fare of authentic Mexican cuisine. Thank you for getting our destination wedding weekend off to a perfect start!Sent on 09/29/2020
We do rehearsal dinners and can create a totally different menu for rehearsal. Whether you book your rehearsal at our restaurant, Polanco, or we cater offsite, ask us for discounted pricing on both wedding and rehearsal dinners!
