Thurston Southern was able to quickly revamp our banquet menu and provide guidance to our staff.
Better than a restaurant! Chef was outstanding. We used them for a special lunch out our house with my family. Food and service was out of this world. We had chicken biscuits as apps and shrimp and grits. Chef Jen had everything ready to go when we needed and even cleaned the kitchen before leaving. They are awesome!
I highly recommend Thurston Southern for your catering needs! They were top notch from the first phone call to the spotless clean up after our party. The food was fantastic, presentation beautiful and service was impeccable! We will use them again for sure.
We have used and recommended Thurston Southern numerous times. First of all, these people can cook! The food is always amazing; fresh, colorful, delicious. They also have terrific customer service. And for us, we especially love the good humor and creativity they bring to their work. Very responsive, talented, high taste level.
The food was great, it tasted as good as it looked, and it looked great. I ate all I could and would've eaten more if it was possible. Served with care and a smile, real quality you can taste from the first bite.
