    Jen and The Ginger Armadillo are AWESOME!! My fiance really wanted a food truck- as in, an actual truck- for our wedding catering, and The Ginger Armadillo fulfilled his every wish :) With our wedding location being just outside of Austin, there were many vendors offering this service but we found Ginger had great reviews, a menu that sounded right up our alley for a casual, but delicious and totally Texas meal, and very reasonable rates. Once we met with Jen and had a tasting, our decision was super easy and we never looked back! Jen was terrific to work with, very responsive and accommodating especially as our guest count expanded, and we literally never had to spend a moment worrying over our wedding food (that part alone deserves 5 stars- wedding planning ain't for the weak!) On the day, the Ginger Armadillo totally crushed it- guests LOVED the menu options and raved about the food- they were super excited to have food they actually enjoyed at a wedding, and our many out-of-town guests loved such a unique, local experience. Ginger provided awesome appetizers and serving folks dinner straight from the truck was a breeze- or at least Ginger Armadillo made it seem that way! I can't thank Jen enough for being such an amazing vendor!

    We knew right away Ginger Armadillo was going to be the choice for our big day after the first bite. Chef Jen has such a wide menu of offerings and was really easy to work with on building a package that worked for our event. She was able to give us a lot of great advice about how to best feed guests at the largest party we've ever thrown. We heard nothing but rave reviews of every single dish from our guests. Working with Chef Jen really was an absolutely pleasure.

    Thank you so much, Ginger Armadillo!

    Jen and her fabulous staff of servers catered my wedding in Dripping Springs, TX. IT WAS FABULOUS. Not only did I get countless comments on how good the food was, her service was beyond impeccable. On top of that, she offered the most competitive pricing that we saw for any food trunk in the area. My husband and I could not have been more pleased, and would absolutely hire Ginger Armadillo again for any catering needs.

    Some of the biggest hits on our menu were her bbq tacos, carne guisada, veggie chili and cornbread and her brisket mac n cheese. Nom, nom, nom!

    Just FYI, Jen also made herself available for tastings and whatever else we needed in the prior months leading up to our wedding as well. We could not have asked for a more attentive vendor. Thanks again Jen!
