Above and beyond weding catering
GHI did a FANTASTIC job for my wedding last week! I honestly can't say enough good things about how kind and professional they all were, plus the food was amazing! After our tasting with Vince back in January, we knew we were making the right choice, but it wasn't until the day of that I realized just how necessary they were to making the day perfect. Jo coordinated a beautiful event and went above and beyond - she helped coach us how to cut the cake, fixed the bustle on my dress and even loaned me her hair tie. It's little things like that that make the world of difference on your big day. Again, can't say enough good things! They are amazing!!Sent on 06/14/2019

Gotta Have It Catering made our rehearsal dinner dreams come true! The service was impeccable and the food was absolutely amazing! They even embraced our Coca-Cola theme with different types of decorations, coke floats, and desserts.Sent on 08/14/2019
The servers and bartenders were attentive and very helpful. The food was hot and tasted fabulous. Our guests were going back for seconds and thirds.
Vince, Travis, Doug and Courtney worked closely with us to capture every detail and request. We were extremely happy with the service and the food and it was the perfect way to kick off our wedding weekend.
GHI Catering's reply:It was our pleasure to serve you. Your families & friends were very warm & nice to the staff. Thank you for these kind words.

Overall, I would highly recommend this team to anyone looking for delicious food and great service. The team was very responsive and easy to coordinate with prior to the event. Day of, they showed up with the truck with plenty of time to get set up, and by the time our guests were ready to eat service was very fast and everyone was absolutely raving. We went with their standard food truck menu and it was an absolute hit! Thank you Vince and team - you helped make our dream day a reality!Sent on 06/11/2018
