    Amazing Food and Service!!!

    I hired Nana's Porch for my wife’s 50th surprise birthday party. We had over 80 people and every person told me it was some of the best food they ever had. I had the Uptown Cheese Steak made with brisket and it was amazing!! I was speaking with friends day after the party who said the tacos were unbelievable or the burger was amazing. Therefore, my only disappointment was that I didn’t get to try everything. The service was fantastic and Hannah was on top of everything from the moment I reached out to hire them for the party. I can’t wait to have another party so I can hire them again. Thanks for making this celebration a memorable experience for wife and all the guests.

    Nana's Porch's reply:

    Thank you so much Michael!! We’re so glad your wife’s party was a success. We hope to feed you all again very soon.

    A month later, I'm still speechless!

    Please listen to me, and do yourself a favor: Hire Nana's Porch for your wedding. Do it!!! It's been a month since the wedding, and I still can't even put into words just how fantastic of a job was done! Hannah was incredibly kind, extremely flexible (no seriously, EXTREMELY flexible!), super creative... I mean, truly every synonym in the dictionary for awesome. I came to Hannah saying, "My shop is called Breakfast for Dinner, so that's the type of food we're going for!" and let me tell you -- it was breakfast for dinner on level 100,000. Our guests raved about the food, most telling us that it was some of the best food they've had at a wedding.

    My only con: why the heck did I not request we take the leftovers!?!?! My mouth is still drooling, and therefore I'm mad at myself for having not taken any to enjoy during the honeymoon. Gosh, so good.

    PRO TIP: have Hannah make your cake too!!! I don't think I've ever had a better Carrot Cake in my life, and I don't know if I ever will. Again: even my own mother who does not like cake said she could have eaten several slices!

    Hannah, thank you times a BILLION. We will find every opportunity we can to keep tasting your delicious food in Charlotte when we visit!

    Nana's Porch's reply:

    Kristy you are so sweet!!! It was such a pleasure working with you all on your special day!! We wish you two all the love and happiness ♥️♥️
