Dagar's provided fantastic food and service to us, and I'm so happy to share my experience! We attended one of their tastings held at a venue in South Austin, and it was absolutely beautiful and helpful. Earlier this year, Dagar's decided to start holding their tastings at different venues every month to help couples out with their venue choice, and they had other vendors there for music, decorations, and cakes too. Everything was setup to give you an idea of what your wedding could look like at that particular venue, which I thought was incredibly smart. Kathryn, the president, mentioned how we were all going to want the get the mac & cheese bar for our wedding, and at first I was skeptical because it was just mac & cheese, but oh my gosh was it delicious! All of our wedding guests raved all night about how awesome and delicious the mac & cheese bar was, and my husband and I loved it because it tasted great and was something different than your typical wedding food. Their staff was so attentive to my husband and me all night, and they constantly checked in with us to make sure we ate or we got our drink or cake preferences, which was much appreciated. We especially appreciated that they packed food to go for us at the end of the night to make sure we got a chance to eat some of our own wedding food. Dagar's provided great service, great portions, delicious food, and a wonderful experience all for a great price.Sent on 07/17/2015
Dagar's Catering's reply:We are so glad that you loved the Mac & Cheese Station as much as we do! :) Thank you so much for letting Dagar's Catering keep you well fed and your glass full on your big day. Extra special thanks for sharing your experience here! We wish you and Andy a lifetime of happiness and hope that the married life has been wonderful for you both!

I cannot say enough good things about Dagar's Catering. My husband and I heard nothing but good things from our friends and family - everyone was gushing over the food all night. As for service, we were blown away by the attentiveness of the staff. Our ceremony was outdoors in Texas in June (hot!!). Dagar's had a staff member waiting with glasses of ice water for my husband and I when the ceremony ended and were proactive about offering our family members hors d'oeuvres and drinks while they waited for pictures with us. All night long, they made sure we had everything we needed and were extremely courteous to our guests. When I met with other caterers in the area, I couldn't justify going with anyone but Dagar's. The quality and value were unmatched. Katherine was extremely reliable with communication and I always felt I could ask questions as needed, even if they might sound silly. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in the Austin area.Sent on 06/23/2015

We used Dagar's for our wedding this past May for our catering and rental services. I cannot say enough good things about Dagar's. Kathryn, our main point of contact, was extremely helpful from the beginning. We had met with other caterers and could not believe the prices many wanted to charge us. With Dagar's, we always got a breakdown of costs that were well within reasonable and we never felt like we were sacrificing quality. Kathryn always promptly responded to my emails and allowed me to make lots of changes to our contract as we went. I had originally though we would provide alcohol ourselves and as it became more obvious that the task would be too large, Kathryn kindly added the services to our contract and always made sure to send updates immediately. She also let me add things like a cake stand and a runner last minute which I would have had a meltdown figuring out myself. The food and appetizers at our reception were amazing and the drinks and bartending services were top-notch.Sent on 07/06/2015
Now the real reason I love Dagar's is the amazing staff. Our wedding was a warm day and with all the rain we had been getting, it was extremely humid. In my 10-pound, multi-layer dress, I was certain during photos that I was going to faint. The catering manager on site (I'm so upset that I cannot remember his name) was so extremely kind and kept bringing me cold damp towels to drape on my neck and keep me cool throughout the night.
I would absolutely recommend Dagar's to anyone looking for catering services for their wedding!

Dagar's was a phenomenal service to work with. Kathryn was on top of everything, unlike other vendors I worked with for my wedding. I never had to remind her of anything we talked about which was breath of fresh air. My husband and I were greeted with cold water immediately after the ceremony and had our food to us right when we sat down. I am gluten free and never felt unsure about anything I ate. Our guests raved about the food! Thank you for making our wedding so perfect! Definitely take advantage of their complimentary tastings. The food is incredible.Sent on 04/10/2015

If I could rate Dagar's higher than a 5 star, I would! The staff went above and beyond on our wedding day. They not only catered food for the wedding but they catered TO us (bride and groom) and our guests. Our guests could not compliment the food enough, it was exactly what we paid for and so delicious! We're still craving the crostinis! I would highly recommend Dagar's for your event's catering!Sent on 02/07/2015

I cannot say enough about Dagar's! Their food was delicious (people went up for seconds), their service was excellent, and their prices were reasonable. Kathryn would literally respond to my emails in less than a few hours. During our wedding, Tracy and John made sure we were completely taken care of. No detail was overlooked. They even chopped our fruit for the sangria for us and put our menu cards on the tables. I am very impressed with Dagar's and definitely recommend them! Bar service was excellent too.Sent on 12/29/2014

We worked with Dagar's for almost a year for our wedding this November. They worked with us every step of the way and were great at answer all questions in a timely manner. Everything from the first tasting to the night of the wedding was fantastic. We were really impressed with the quality of service and food the night of the wedding. I believe John was the manager at our wedding, and he was great. He along with his staff consistently ensured everything ran smoothly and that we were taken care of. The food looked and tasted AMAZING!!! We got several appetizers, bar service, and dinner through them. Everything was just perfect.!Sent on 12/01/2014

Dagar's was beyond what I had imagined for my wedding. Kathryn's presentation from day one was impeccable and exactly what a bride would want in a catering company. After many last minute changes to my contract Kathryn was so accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process. I received many, many compliments on the food that we chose for our wedding. Everyone was raving about the catering right down to how great the staff was. I am so thankful to Kathryn and her wonderful staff for how smoothly the day flowed. The food was delicious and I am so glad I decided to go with them for our wedding catering needs.Sent on 11/18/2014

We had to go with our approved vendor list for the venue at One World Theatre and were are so glad that Dagar's is on the list. From the beginning they are super easy to work with and hassle free. They didn't complicate the contract, which the other caters had. The food was delicious and the service was perfect. Our favorite part was the late night pizza at 10:30p that they had for our guests. That was a hit! I will definitely have them cater my next big event.Sent on 11/12/2014

Kathryn is an amazing and wonderful lady and it truly shows throughout her business! All of the attention to detail and the little inclusions (water for guests upon entering, packaging leftover food, care packages for bride/groom and parents, etc) really show the level of care at Dagar's. I came in quite stressed out as all things not in my control had started falling apart and Kathryn quickly noticed and stepped into counselor mode and was able to completely snap me out of it. The catering manager and staff do a great job of making the bride & groom feel extra special during the event by serving our food to us and making sure our glasses never emptied all night! The food was exactly as we had requested and we didn't know until we saw the pictures that they actually hand carved our pork for our guest to ensure it didn't dry out! I would recommend Dagar's to anyone looking for a great event!Sent on 05/19/2014
Dagar's Catering's reply:Thank you so much for all of the amazingly kind words you have shared. I am so glad to hear that your special day was what you hoped it would be.

Dagar's professional experience is evident in every aspect of dealing with them. From planning to delivery they are unsurpassed. The food was incredible (as mentioned by all guests) the service time was great, 185 buffet guests in less than 20 minutes, and their staff was attentive and helpful throughout the evening.Sent on 05/07/2014
They truly know their stuff. They have tastings in their kitchen so you can get an overview of the choices and they are great at making budget conscious recommendations. We modified via email a few times, and spoke on the phone as the date got closer. They also provided barbecue for our rehearsal that was great and they same level of exceptional service. If their were 10 stars they would have earned them.

Dagar's was perfect. The food (we had the caprese chicken) was deeeelicious! I planned my wedding in a month, so I'm certain I was a very obnoxious bride with my constant and urgent questions and last minute changes, but Dagar's was incredibly helpful and patient with me! I'm so grateful to Dagar's for their work!Sent on 11/13/2013

Dagar's Catering gave us exactly what we asked for. The food was excellent, as were the preparers and servers and the bar servers were on the ball all the time. The staff were responsive and professional during the event, held at Antebellum Oaks Venue. Also highly recommended.

The people who work there are wonderful. Every time I called or emailed I got a response almost immediately, and they were all so nice and friendly (which is important when you're dealing with an overwhelmed bride!). I set up a tasting and I told Kathryn what we were looking for and she was able to give us plenty of options to choose from. All of the options were so good it was hard to choose just one!
Then the wedding came and it went off without a hitch! Everyone was where they were supposed to be on time. The servers were all very professional and helpful. And all of my guests absolutely LOVED the food.
Working with Dagar's Catering was great and I would definitely recommend them to anyone I know.

Amazing Service! I will talk about the food but I want to first say how unexpectedly amazing the service was on our Big Day! Dagar's had a person assigned to the Bride and Groom to make sure we always had what we needed (be it water, food or beverage) Our wedding was in late June, so it was amazing to have someone ready with an ice cold glass of water always on hand for me and my wedding party. This person not only made sure I was always hydrated, but also my parents and grand parents! The food was also amazing! We had a limited budget, so it was essential to find one dish that would suite all 100 guests. Dagar's was so great in working with us to find the right combination that would work for everyone, including separate dishes for people with deadly allergies. After the night was over, the Dagar's staff helped to quickly clear the buffet, sweep and load cars with leftovers. We loved this vendor and would definitely recommend them for any special occasion because of their great service and attention to detail!Sent on 01/25/2014

Our wedding was in March 2013, and we used Dagar's to cater the reception. They were fabulous. We looked at a lot of caterers around Austin, and Dagar's was by far the most competitively priced. When we told other vendors our food budget, they scoffed at us and would always send us a bid far outside of what we had budgeted. Kathryn, one of the owners of Dagar's, was the exact opposite. She worked with us to create a menu that was well within our budget, even with the rentals and service fees factored in. And, to be clear, the lower price was no reflection of the food or service they provided. Everything was exactly how we asked for it to be. We had food stations that consisted of comfort foods, and everyone at the wedding commented on how great the food was, particularly the barbecue sliders. I worked closely with Kathryn, and she was very responsive and always followed up quickly on any questions I had. She also worked with us to personalize our menu to exactly what we wanted. The night of the wedding, her staff was great. They ensured that the groom and I had food waiting at our places so that we had a chance to eat during the reception. They also packaged up a care package and put it in our car to take with us at the end of the night, which was much appreciated after a long night of dancing!Sent on 04/05/2013

Dagar's Catering was wonderful to work with. They were always helpful and very flexable. Their cost was very reasonable. They were recommended by the venue and the venue did not steer us wrong. Dagar's was always very professional and friendly on the telephone and the night of my daughter's wedding was no different. All of the catering staff were so friendly and so helpful. They treated us like we were the most important people they had ever served. They packaged food for my daughter and her husband to take with them and packaged the rest of the food for my husband and myself to take home with us. The guests told us several times that the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding. I would highly recommend Dagar's to anyone if they want their event to go smoothly. I did not have to do anything but sit back and enjoy the evening. Thank you Dagar's for making my daughter's wedding so wonderful!Sent on 06/28/2010
