I can't thank Chichen Itza enough for their outstanding job at my wedding. They were there as our caterers but when our vendor for our chairs and table were running 2 hours late, Chichen Itza stepped up to the plate and took charge of the situation and helped diffuse a very stressful situation for me. They set up our ceremony chairs for us, offered to bring their own tables and linens and helped the coordinator move tables and chairs – they were awesome! One of the waiters told me “this is your wedding; don’t worry about anything we will take care of it.” Once the other vendor showed up with our tables and linens (finally), Chichen Itza staff helped move and set-up everything. Not once did I hear them complain or make me feel like this was an inconvenience or outside of their scope of services. Chichen Itza staff showed up on time, were professionally dressed, and very polite to our guests. The food was amazing! Since the wedding, we’ve received many compliments on the food and have even been asked where their restaurant is located so they can go eat there. The event coordinator of the venue and our wedding planners were highly impressed with their professionalism and food. Overall, I HIGHLY recommend Chichen Itza for your catering needs.

I really don't know where to start praising Chichen Itza for it's talent and professionalism!

Gilberto Jr. worked with my husband and I when we were looking for a caterer for our wedding. We tried this, tried that, but couldn't find a caterer for a Mexican meal without it being fajitas or street tacos. When I first spoke to Gilberto he asked what region of Mexico our families were from and he designed a spectacular menu that was friendly to our 'food' budget (a very modest figure for 200 guests). We exchanged some emails and next was the tasting...He blew us away!

Gilberto proposed we have ceviche, guac., and assorted salsas as an appetizer, barbacoa and mole poblano as the main dish along with a jicama and orange green salad, not to mention the aguas frescas, cafe de hoya, and hand made tortillas that helped complete the picture...It was an amazing spread.

What really won my husband and I over is Gilberto's dedication to his craft. Although we had already signed a contract and paid a deposit, when I mentioned to him the type of meat cut my mom, a traditional Mexican mother, uses in her barbacoa he insisted that we come back for a second tasting. He of course noted that he couldn't compete with mom, but wanted to make something that would satisfy her biased palate. He had us come in to try two variations of the barbacoa to make sure he had it right. At no time did he make us feel like this was a burden, in fact he displayed nothing but enthusiasm throughout the process and we were thrilled to try his food.

The day of our wedding the food was served buffet style and everyone loved the food. My husband and I didn't miss out, we actually anticipated having Gilberto's mole and barbacoa, it was great, just like at the tastings. Our guests were just as pleased as we were to have authentic Mexican food. The compliments are still rolling in, and I point them towards Chichen Itza.

Since we were introduced to Chichen Itza we've become frequent patrons of the restaurant and even have a copy of their recently published cookbook. We will never stop being impressed by their level of professionalism, attention to detail, and wonderful customer service.
