Tom Thumb was the best decision we made!

Tom Thumb was one of the more inexpensive options for wedding catering, but everyone who used him gave excellent reviews. We were blown away by the quality. Everything was delicious and there were plenty of leftovers. Carl worked with us to cater to a few specific needs and made the whole process stress free. We would highly recommend for any wedding or function!

The Best Wedding Food EVER

We LOVE Tom Thumbs :) Planning a wedding in 2020, and on top of that, my husband and I live in Arizona. Tom made it so easy to talk about our menu over the phone and plan it all out. He was so flexible when we had to postpone too! Every single person at my wedding loved the food. Our wedding was at the end of October and my friends and family are still texting me and telling me how good the food was. I actually had several friends tell me it was "the best wedding food they've ever had." I can't disagree! My husband and I are huge seafood fans and I'm still dreaming about the crab bites.... don't hestitate! If you want some good southern cooking, look no further. :)
