Chef Dan's food was so delicious. Everyone was raving about the most tinder chicken they have ever had with the mouth watering roasted pepper sauce. The asparagus was also yummy and everyone loved it. I will be using Chef Dan's catering service in the future.

We had an outdoor wedding last Saturday. The food was delicious and the buffet line went well. It was very pleasant to make the arrangements with Allison and Dan. There were many comments about how good the food was and we are very grateful for having picked them to fix the food. I would highly recommend them. They even had to deal with a very steep drive. Ha

Oh my...I do not have enough amazing things to say about Chef Daniel and his wife!!! They just catered out 250 person wedding at my parent's home with people all over the country attending and I have heard nothing but rave reviews about the food. AMAZING. We had the parmesan chicken, bacon wrapped shrimp, roast beef bar, sweet and mashed potato bars, collard greens and last but not least the risotto. It was incredible! I was the bride and was supposed to be greeting everyone...instead I was scarfing my food down :) They showed up on time and were incredible throughout the wedding planning process. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended...!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about these guys. Allison and Dan were so great and accommodating with all my questions and changes to the menu and budget. We ended up going with the cajun chicken pasta, pork tenderloin, white cheddar mashed potatoes and green bean casserole in the end and all our guests RAVED about it for days after!

I've been in the wedding industry for 10 years which afforded me the opportunity to eat wedding food at hundreds of receptions. I had never been to one where I ever thought 'Wow this food is great' so that was something that was really important to me, to not have food that tasted like it came from a frozen microwave dinner. I wanted food everyone would really enjoy and Chef Dan's definitely delivered.

Allison always replied to the many emails I sent her incredibly quickly and they worked with my budget and helped make my dream wedding food a reality. A week after the wedding my husband and I were ready to go visit their central library cafe for more! I will definitely be recommending them to all my friends and clients getting married in the future.

With our casual wedding we opted to have Chef Dan's come in their truck and serve there drool-worthy southern style comfort food to our guests!

After dinner, I overheard all the guests raving about how tasty the food was, and how unique it was to have dinner served from a food truck!

It was so much fun and we'll never forget the experience.. and neither will our guests!

As with most couples, having amazing food at our wedding was a top priority. I searched for quite some time, and for some reason I kept coming back to the Chef Dan website. We had just moved to Indianapolis and did not know anyone that could give us a recommendation for a great caterer, so on a whim one evening I finally decided to reach out to Chef Dan’s, and boy am I glad I did.

First, the food. The food was DELICIOUS! And the price was VERY affordable, which was also important to us as we were on a pretty tight budget. They did not skimp on anything. We decided to do hors d’oeuvres for a cocktail hour and a full sit down meal for the reception. Days later, our guests were still raving about the food. From the crab cake bites to the sautéed green beans, I still have a hard time picking my favorite dish. Chef Dan’s even thought enough of us to set aside some hors d’oeuvres so that my husband and I could munch a little while we took pictures before the reception.

Second, the customer service. Chef Dan and his wife Allison are two of the NICEST people you will ever meet. They are very personable all the while remaining very professional. My numerous emails were always returned promptly and I was never told that something was silly or that it couldn’t be done. My husband and I needed to order tables and chairs from the same rental company that Chef Dan’s uses, and Allison was nice enough to put our request on with hers so that there would only be one order. And now, months after the wedding, each time we run into Chef Dan’s AMAZING food truck, we are always greeted with a smile and a “how are you?”, just as if we were old friends catching up.

Chef Dan’s was by far our favorite vendor for our wedding. My husband and I still talk about how great that aspect of our wedding was. If you are looking for great food, a professional and personable vendor, top-notch service, and an overall great value for your money, please consider Chef Dan’s!

Chef Dan makes DELICIOUS food!! We had comfort food for our wedding- Fried Chicken, mac n cheese, green beans, salad, and rolls. Everyone absolutely RAVED about how good the chicken was. Chef Dan takes normal food and makes it extraordinary. The prices are very low and you get a lot of bang for your buck.
