    Best in the business!

    My fiance and I stopped in to do our tasting with Sue and the team last week - and we were blown away! Sue asked all the right questions about our wedding - she was thinking about everything down to the colors, theme, dietary restrictions, you name it! The food was also delicious. You can't go wrong with Sue and her amazing team! We can't wait to see you on our wedding day in January!

    Phenomenal food and service

    Straight To The Plate traveled to Albuquerque NM to cater our daughters wedding that was held on December 1, 2018 at The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History and the food and service was phenomenal. We had experienced their food at a previous event in Arizona so when it was time to find a caterer for our daughters wedding they were the first we contacted. Traveling such a distance wasn’t normal for them however we worked things out so their delicious food was center stage at the reception. From delicious hot crab cakes, spicy buffalo dip to their tender flank steak, creamy chicken piccata and to die for 5 cheese Mac and cheese they went above and beyond what we had hoped for. Guests were able to enjoy as much food as they could hold because nothing was scrimped on by Straight To The Plate. Plus they also provided all the beautiful tableware for the reception which was one less thing we had to worry about. Guests complimented us on the food and service wanting our cateres information plus many hoped to learn the recipes for the 5 cheese Mac and cheese and their glazed bacon appetizers. My daughter and her new husband were thrilled with Straight To The Plate and couldn’t thank them enough for making their first family dinner such a huge success!!!

They know how to deliver flavors and delicious bites your guests will definitely remember as their scrumptious menu goes far beyond what other caterer's provide, not to mention simply how amazing their service is in any situation.

    I have worked with Sue and Straight to the Plate Catering at several events. I am always impressed with her food and her service. I am always excited to see what she prepares and how she serves it. I am always amazed at what she comes up with. The food always tastes amazing. I enjoy Sue and her food so much that she is who I will be using for my own wedding.
