    Better than we could have dreamed of!

    Jacque and Chris were incredibly easy to work with. They host frequent tastings in which they showcase different items on their menu. They are also willing to tweak the dishes to accommodate taste preferences and dietary restrictions. Both were very helpful in choosing the food selection as well as the timeline for our wedding reception. In their recommendations they took in consideration the location, crowd and style of our reception.
    The day of, Jacque and her team were attentive but not overbearing. They set up the different stations of the buffet in a timely manner and without any disturbance. During the reception they quickly cleaned up empty plates and oversaw the guests. They were great at explaining dishes with its ingredients and preparation, as many guest came from overseas and were unfamiliar with local southern cuisine. The best part of their service, for us as the couple, was that we were prepared plates and lovingly reminded to sit down and eat, as we would have probably not done so ourselves.

    Professional, amazing food, and great people to work with!

    Chris and his team were great to work with. The food was amazing and my guests still rave about it! I love the fact that they have a 42 foot commercial kitchen trailer that they bring everywhere with them to cook in - ensuring the food is fresh and hot.

    The best!

    Chris and Jacque were amazing to work with. We knew we had to hire them for our wedding after we went to one of their tastings. The food is out of this world, especially the mac and cheese!! As a bride, I wanted my wedding to be perfect, and absolute perfection is what I got when it came to the catering at my wedding reception. They were always quick to answer my many questions over the entire year we were working with them. (Shoutout to Jacque!!!) They also made postponing my wedding during Coronavirus a lot easier! Jacque and the team were amazing on the day of and left us with extra food that we ate every day the week after the wedding. Thank you for making our wedding the best day ever!!!
