They were amazing and the food was so delicious, our guest all talked about how good it was. They were also so flexible and open to all my ideas. With there service they included coffee station and non-alcoholic drinks. I didn't really want BBQ but after tasting there chicken I quickly changed mind. The presentation of all the food was nicely done. I would definitely go with them again if I need an event catered.

Heather Thomas is co-owner and your main contact with this catering company and responds to emails very promptly. Responsive to any needs that you may have prior to your event. The staff at the event was very professional and for the wedding made sure that that bridal party was passed appetizers while taking family photos as well as taking care of the guests. Also were right on top of cleaning guests plates as soon as they were done with the meal. Ran an ice cream bar that was amazing with home made ice cream and toppings. Provided mini cupcakes and cheescakes bites that were delicious. Chocolate peanut butter was the favorite per guests!!! The sweet corn ice cream with carmel sause also a favorite!! Thank you Heather and Russ for helping make my daughters wedding a dream come true!!!!!

We used Two Cooks Catering for our wedding a couple weeks ago. From the beginning Heather and Russ were so great to work with! They are professional, nice, and responsive. I had a lot of questions and a lot of adjustments throughout our planning period and Heather was always more than happy to do them for me. We did extra rentals through them as well that made our day so much smoother. The food was unique and delicious! And a great value for what we got. I did a lot of research with other catering companies in the area and Two Cooks is definitely the best for quality, service, and pricing! Highly recommended. Thanks so much Heather and Russ for making our day exactly what we wanted. The Root Beer floats were a huge hit with the guests!!

Two cooks did a great job working with us on catering our wedding. The food was very well executed and delicious. They were able to do a modified family style for our reception of 115 people, which made for a very comfortable and fun dinner for our guests. Heather and Russ were very helpful from our tasting and menu selection on to the day of the wedding and were professional and detail oriented throughout. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer that offers a unique and gourmet perspective on traditional favorites.

Russ and his catering team are truly amazing! All of my guests could not believe how amazing the food at our wedding was, and my parents continued to receive feedback on it for weeks after our wedding. Two Cooks Catering is not only professional, but they are trustworthy and passionate about what they do. My husband and I were living in San Francisco (the home of AMAZING food), while we were planning our wedding in San Luis Obispo. We became very discouraged when we started researching caterers in SLO, and realized that none of the food matched the quality of what we were used to in SF. That is - until we tasted Two Cooks Catering and our minds were blown. The quality of Russ's cooking is unparalleled, and we wish we could get married every year so we could taste his food again and again. He also has a great personality and is a family man, so he's wonderful to work with and very responsive.

Two Cooks Catering was a wonderful caterer for our wedding. We had a luncheon buffet and the food was professionally and tastefully displayed. All our guests raved about the taste and quality of what we had picked for our menu. The only thing I would change would be to have had a second vegetarian main item, in addition to the Portabella sandwiches. I found out later that some of our vegetarian guests don't eat mushrooms. I would however, HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Israeli CousCous Salad. It was delicious and was the item we got the most compliments about.

Russ and Heather were both very pleasant to deal with, came up with an awesome menu, had plenty of food for everyone and I have received many compliments about them since our event. Their staff they had to help were pleasant and friendly. Yes, I would use them again :)

These guys will knock your socks off!!! We were SO LUCKY to get them for our wedding in Paso Robles. Every encounter with them was top-notch: Russ is seriously one of the nicest, mellowest, coolest guys you will meet. He is truly excited (and humble) about his food, which is UNBELIEVABLE!!! From our first tasting with him, we were hooked. Amazing, amazing food. I only wish that we were guests at our own wedding so that we could enjoy everything even more!

Of course, the best part for me was that he was able to make all the food gluten-free and dairy-free for me, due to food intolerances! It was SUCH a great feeling to know that I could eat everything there and not have to worry about getting sick later--NOT what you want for your wedding night!

In addition, much of the food was organic and came from the farmers market that Russ visited that morning. YUM!

Loved Two Cooks so, so much. They were one of the main ingredients in our perfect wedding, and I will never forget Russ and his food!

Heather and Russ were outstanding to work with during the entire wedding planning process. They were incredibly flexible, sweet, and helpful. We have received a number of compliments stating that we had the best food they have ever had at a wedding (fajitas). They even packed us up a huge meal to take with us that night. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a stress free, delicious meal.
