Food Dudes is the best!

Food Dudes is the preferred caterer for our vendor, but we would have chosen them even if they weren’t!
Shivaan was so helpful planning our entire menu and coordinating our tasting.
Somehow, Food Dudes took what we had at the tasting and managed to upscale it to 140 people while making it even better. We are THRILLED with the service we received and got so many compliments from all of our guests.

The best food I’ve ever had

The care this company has for their clients is beyond words. We were taken care of by two amazing coordinators throughout the whole time. The best communication and the best service I’ve ever experienced. Let’s talk about the food though. OH MY GOD!!!! From the moment the appies came out we knew right away our guests were happy. Not only was the food amazingly tasty but it was presented so nice as well. Our entrees were to die for. The desert was so refreshing and delicious. I did not hear one negative review from anyone. In fact, a lot of guests told us it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. (Score!!!! High fives all around). They can work with any budget, please do not pass up on The food dudes, you will not regret it.

Amazing food!

Food Dudes catered our October 2022 wedding at Steamwhistle Brewery and our guests are still talking about it! The food was fantastic (definitely not your typical wedding food), and Jason and his team were wonderful to work with. Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had (special shout out to the apps!). Everything was fresh, hot and top quality. You won’t regret working with Food Dudes. Thanks again!

This is your caterer. The food was INCREDIBLE!

Oh my god is all we can say. Everyone (picky kid to adult Foody) was raving about how delicious the food was. Hands down the best wedding food we've ever had. Phylicia is incredible. We had a few issues with our venue about rentals and Phylicia was handled it like a pro. She followed up with the owner to confirm what we were being told was true (it wasn't). Incredible customer service. If it weren't for her we would have been paying outrageous rental fees that we did not need to pay for. She was very thoughtful through the day, she made sure allergies were catered to and she had a platter made up for my husband and I that she put in the bridal suite to make sure we ate while we had photos done. We also had them cater the bridal suite's lunch, it was delicious. Overall the food was amazing - don't bother looking at other caterer's, go with the Food Dudes. You won't be disappointed.

Delicious food 😋

The food dudes was an excellent choice for our outdoor farm wedding.
We decided to go with the food truck instead of the catering and it was fantastic.
My guests cannot get over how amazing the mac and cheese balls were. The fish tacos, the truck burger and the bibimbop bowl were also huge bits. I personally had the fish tacos and they were just outstanding. I would definitely use this company again if we ever required a good truck. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had actually forgotten to order the kids meals which I had planned to order from McDonald's so the food dudes stepped up and made food for the children that didn't have a meal. The kids were so happy and so was I. Excellent service guys!!!

Amazing food, everyone is still raving!

Food Dudes Food Truck catered our wedding - we had appetizers on the patio at our venue and a table service dinner (with food truck menu). It could not have gone better and for days we were getting compliments about the food. The staff were all incredibly friendly, even bringing around some extras after dinner service to make sure everyone had enough. The creme brulee donuts were out of this world! We weren't able to do a tasting unfortunately leading up to our wedding due to being out of province; however no part of us was nervous given the reputation of Food Dudes and they certainly lived up to and exceeded our expectations! Thank you all for making our special night so great and bellies full!

One word: phenomenal!

Our food was AMAZING!! Every guest that came up to me said the food was great! By far the best short rib we tasted! They did such a great job with consistently cooking all of the meals to perfection. You know how you go for a tasting and the food is great but then in a large setting the quality goes down? Definitely was not the case with Food Dudes.

Amy was great at helping us navigate through all of the details leading up to the big day. This team really made our special day phenomenal. We’re so happy we went with them!

Top quality

We got rave reviews from so many of our guests about how good the food was - all the way from appetizers down to the final dessert. Working with the Food Dudes we didn't have to worry about having 'boring wedding banquet food' that so many people end up dreading.
