I can't say enough good things about Hometown Chef! As a vegetarian, I wanted wedding food that supported my lifestyle but that everyone would think was delicious and they totally delivered! Many of my relatives were initially skeptical of vegetarian wedding food but I heard from so many guests that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. I'm so grateful for Hometown Chef for being so accommodating and friendly. I would highly recommend them for your next event!
Tiffany and Chef Julio are awesome! We wanted a custom menu for our wedding and they were more than accommodating to create exactly what we wanted our guests to experience. Their creativity and quality of food is out of this world. Thank you so much for making our day so special!
AMAZING! The Hometown Chef Catering Co. were so organized and supportive of our special requests! My husband’s family is from Puerto Rico, so we wanted authentic PR food. It was an absolute success! My guests are still talking about the food! I can’t thank Tiffany and Julio enough for making our wedding such a day to remember. We love y’all!
Home Town Chef was absolutely incredible to work with. Not only were they so kind and professional, but they went WAY above and beyond their hired services to make everything for the wedding went smoothly. We are SO appreciate of vendors like them who make certain that their clients are happy and that the day is amazing for everyone. I cannot say enough great things about them. You will be SO glad you hired them! Warmly, Kelcie Anton
100% recommend Hometown Chef! My mom and I went to their tasting and were immediately blown away by not only their food but their passion for the business. Even though we had a small wedding of ~50 people, they helped us create a custom menu and Tiffany was super responsive to my numerous questions and emails. I didn't have a planner at all for my wedding, but Tiffany called the week before going over every detail from setup to the food. The crew that arrived on the day of were great and everything went perfect. Obviously food was delicious -- our guests loved the chimichurri shrimp and mac & cheese! Thanks again!!
OMG I can't say enough about my experience with HTC. Not only was the food wonderful, the service was great as well. Easy to contact, friendly staff, it was all wonderful! Highly recommended!
Hometown Chef Catering was amazing! The food was great and the service was even better! Tiffany and her staff went above and beyond for our wedding. From the initial contact, we always felt completely taken care of. They even had appetizers in the bridal suite for my husband and myself after the ceremony. I wasn’t ever worried about the catering. Absolutely amazing!!!
The Hometown Chef Catering Co. knocked it out of the park for us at our Lunch & Learn! The food was delicious. The service was impeccably. The presentation was professional. The quote & confirmation process was easy & efficient. We can't wait to use them again for another company event. Tiffany is a doll!
The Hometown Chef did an AMAZING job for our wedding at the Gardens at Madeley Manor. They are willing to work with you to create a menu that fits your event. We wanted to have a traditional family style dinner, which is pretty unconventional for weddings, but Tiffany was immediately on board when we brought up the idea to her! Make sure to go for a tasting so you can meet the chef and taste all the great food options they have to offer. The Staff was very professional during our wedding and we were beyond impressed with the quality of food.
9 days before my wedding, my caterer fell through. In a panic I called The Hometown Chef Catering Co. and they were INCREDIBLE. They were understanding and got to work right away for my wedding. In just EIGHT DAYS they pulled together a menu and food for 200 people and it was amazing. They truly bent over backwards for us and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Plus the food is AMAZING.
One of our best decisions choosing Hometown Chef Catering Co. From our first conversation with Tiffany, to our amazing private tasting, to the wonderful waitstaff at the wedding, and of course we cannot say enough about the food. We absolutely made the right decision hiring Hometown Chef . Everyone at the wedding was commenting on how good the food was, and how polite and wonderful the waitstaff was serving the food. If we could do it all over again, we would definitely choose Hometown Chef again. We would like to personally thank all of them for doing such an amazing job.
We hit a GRANDSLAM when we chose The Hometown Chef Catering Co. to cater our wedding!!! Planning a wedding can be stressful- fortunately the staff at Hometown Chef took any and all the stress out of catering! I loved how easy it was to get along with them, and how friendly they were throughout our whole planning process! I immediately loved that this was a husband and wife team- and not only was their love for each other apparent (and so stinkin’ cute!) but their love for food, and what they do was always present! We received SO many compliments from our guests on how good everything was! Everything was cooked perfectly, and served hot! When I walked into our first tasting and requested mini hotdogs, (and other ballpark food items to go along with our Houston Astros themed cocktail hour), Tiffany didn’t look at me like I was crazy.. instead her face LIT UP with excitement with the idea! I was sold. Her energy was infectious!! I can 100% say that Chef Julio, Tiffany & the entire staff at Hometown Chef brought my vision to life and then some!!!!! The service was incredible, and their attention to each and every detail made this detail oriented bride’s heart go pitter patter!!! The communication with Hometown Chef was the BEST! They were incredibly responsive to my numerous questions & emails! (Thanks for putting up with me, y’all) Hiring The Hometown Chef Catering Co. was by far, the best decision! We will be forever grateful for all that they did for us on our big day!
Tiffany is such an enthusiastic vendor. We had tons of ideas, and she made them all come to life and did not make us feel like our choices were too much work on their part. The menu tasting was so much fun, and we were able to change and add things, based off what we loved at the tasting! The set up and clean up was done so effortlessly. I was never bothered on the wedding day about anything. We had plates of food waiting for us in the bridal suite, and at our bride/groom table. We never had to ask for our food, and were even given to go boxes to take with us after! (so glad we had that!) Great experience all around!
Tiffany, Chef Julio, and The Hometown Chef team came to our rescue and we couldn’t have been happier! It was definitely serendipitous and I am a firm believer in “meant to be” ...obviously! After things did not work out with our initial caterer, I began to panic because our wedding was only 2 months away. However, my sister is in the industry, and she and her colleagues highly recommended The Hometown Chef. So, we emailed Tiffany and she was extremely prompt in responding to our inquiry and setting up a meet and greet. Tiffany even offered to meet us near our home, which was so thoughtful as their office is quite far from us. She is energetic, personable, and we instantly felt a connection that not only brought us a huge sense of relief but it was then that we knew we wanted The Hometown Chef to cater our wedding. We chose the Tex-Mex menu and the tasting was truly spectacular from the presentation to the intimate conversation we were able to have with Chef Julio and Tiffany. It was by far one of the best meals I’ve ever had and the personal attention from Chef Julio and Tiffany was even better! The enchiladas, chicken fajitas, re-fried beans, and spanish rice were to die for!! Moreover, it was Chef Julio and Tiffany’s professionalism that left us completely at ease on our big day and we couldn’t possibly recommend anyone higher! Do yourselves a favor and save some time by choosing The Hometown Chef for your event!
Ladies…..if you are looking for food to remember the day of your wedding PICK THIS COMPANY!!! We have nothing but great things to say about Tiffany and Chef Julio. They are the sweetest couple. It was a pleasure to meet them at the tasting and get to know them. My family and I left the tasting so excited. The food was AMAZING! The day of our wedding we had so many compliments. It was enjoyed by everyone. From the communication with Tiffany prior to the wedding, to the helpful staff at the wedding, everything was perfect.
It was such a joy to work with the Hometown Chef!! From the moment we met them, all of their staff was so friendly and personable. At our tasting, we were so impressed by the team's professionalism and willingness to make our food dreams come to life! Throughout the planning process, The Hometown Chef had outstanding communication and flexibility. Finally, on the day of the wedding, there were no surprised, the team was punctual and the food was absolutely delicious! You won't regret working with this company! We just love them <3
I knew we had made the perfect choice of going with Hometown Chef the moment we stepped into our tasting! Tiffany and Julio are outstanding and really impressed us at the tasting and at our reception. We were recommended to use them by our event venue. As soon as we agreed to use them, Tiffany was immediately in contact with me to get our tasting scheduled. She was so attentive throughout the menu planning process, and I am so grateful for her help. Julio knocked our socks off with the food. We chose the chimichurri steak and the pecan crusted chicken as our two entrees. They even prepared vegetarian dishes for a couple of our friends in the bridal party. I highly suggest using Hometown Chef, they stick to your budget and give you the highest quality!
Wow this company is amazing! My now husband and I met Tiffany at the Bridal Extravaganza show last January. We instantly knew we wanted to work with Hometown Chef. We set up an tasting and we felt like family. Tiffany and Julio worked with us on the menu and were open to our suggestions. As the months passed and our big day got closer I wanted to make a few changes. Between Terrie, Donna and Tiffany we were able to make all the changes. Terrie and Donna work in the office and were always super easy to get a hold of and great. A week before Tiffany called me to confirm every thing, it was perfect since there were still minor details that I had not even thought of and she took care of it. The day of the wedding was perfect and our food was amazing. There was not a single problem that we or our guests noticed. Everything was hot and seasoned so well. We had a 2 main dish buffet with 2 sides, salad and a fruit and cheese plates. We got compliments all night on how good our food was and how it was not "boring wedding food". We had asked that they package up leftovers so we could give it to friends and family and they did so with no extra cost. Hometown Chef is a great catering company, but more importantly they treat their clients like family. Your wedding will be in great hands and I have zero regrets for picking them as my caterer.
We were so blown away by Home Town Chef! Tiffany and Julio and their team give a 5 star product from top to bottom. We still have guests talk to us about the food to this day. 10/10 would recommend to everyone for any catering needs especially that one special day you will never forget. Tiffany and Julio will definitely make your taste buds never forget.
