    Food Dudes was exceptional!

    For our backyard wedding, they were phenomenal in navigating our at-home kitchen set-up, creating an intimate and gorgeous menu for us and for outstanding service to us and our guests all night long. I've used Food Dudes for work events and was so happy to be able to have them a part of our big day!

    Best food ever!

    By far the best food I’ve ever tasted! This is NOT typical wedding food. Not only was the food amazing, but Jason (one of their coordinators) was simply amazing and so helpful. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. We still have guest from our wedding commenting about how good the food was!!!

    the BEST wedding food

    SO many of my guests have been commenting about the food at the wedding. I was so sad that I didn't get to eat more of it! I am a vegan and my husband is not. Food Dudes was so accommodating to helping to create a vegan friendly menu that everyone would love. The staff was incredible. Two Thumbs up! They were just perfect!

    Delicious food with great service

    We had the challenge of getting married across the country, and not getting to taste our food before the reception. We told our Wedding Coordinator that food was important to us and that it was something we were willing to pay higher prices for. We took one of the recommendations of our Coordinator and never looked back. Heck, she had great taste we thought (well her taste seemed to be similar to mine, so same difference?) And boy did she ever.

    We loved choosing from the menu options and putting together a menu that really seemed like "us". We were a little afraid some of the items would be a little too adventurous or spicey for some of our guests, but we only received positive feedback from everyone.

    We made sure to enjoy our food on our wedding day and it was delicious.
    We had a vegan guest and I myself am a pescatarian. There were plenty of options for everyone. I know that the sous vide short ribs were the biggest hit.
    My mom was the most impressed with the service during the passed appetizers. So thank you for that!

    I'm still dreaming of the fudge brownie.
