Cook Shack was PHENOMENAL! We found them through the recommendations of our Wedding Coordinator, and upon reaching out was impressed by their options, pricing, responsiveness, and customer service! From the start Tracey was so so friendly! We (at the time) lived 3 hours away and they accommodated us for a private tasting for our big day. When we arrived, we had no idea what we were in for - imagine the best food ever.... and then triple that! Austin and his assistant were so wonderful - it was like we were dining with old friends! We left a bit later and were in a food coma of deliciousness! We didn't even have to try out any other catering company - we knew Cook Shack had to be the ones to handle our big day. We ended up moving out of state during the engagement, and throughout my many questions, they were very responsive and kind - and believe me I ask a LOT of questions. On our big day, they were even better than imagined. People have been raving about the food since social hour. They brought us our food and made us to go plates - which we ate as soon as we reached the hotel. Their staff was polite and delightful to us and all of our guests. We also loved the option of having them donate the leftovers to homeless shelters. If you are in between on catering companies for your big event - look no further! They are SO WORTH IT! Thanks Tracey and Austin!!
Exceeded my expectations on all fronts. Service was timely and the food presentation was beautiful. Best food at any event I’ve participated in.....and the prices were reasonable. I let Austin do everything for my daughters wedding including bar service.....You can’t go wrong with Cook Shack!
Our experience with Cook Shack as the caterer for our daughter’s wedding reception was wonderful! We met Austin and Tracey at a bridal event at market hall. Not only were they serving the most delicious food, but they were so nice and friendly. We scheduled a tasting and were even more impressed. During the planning process they were very much available for questions and were very accommodating to our needs. During the reception, the servers were efficient and professional. I like that we had the option of keeping the left over food or donating it to a homeless shelter. I would highly recommend them for any event! Although the name sounds casual they are so much more!
Cook Shack rocked our wedding! We are so happy with our decision to give them our business for one of the most important day of our lives. We got married at The Oaks at Salem in Apex. From day one we were impressed by their offerings, organization, and overall attitude as a home-grown business. Their hot pimento cheese dip, and the fact that they're one of the only legit catering companies offering to bbq a whole hog, sealed the deal for us. Good people with a passion for what they do, and it shows! They didn't nickle and dime us, and even went above and beyond, such as serving the bride and groom first, making a generous take-out bag for the bride and groom to take on the honeymoon, and as if that wasn't enough, they later sent us a delightful gift basket. Top notch! We highly recommend Cook Shack and will keep them in mind for future catering events.
Hands down best catering company out there! Professional, creative, efficient ... everything you need for your event. Will recommend over and over to anyone looking for a catering company. Never once did I worry about a thing! A thousand thank-yous for making our daughter's wedding so wonderful!
I am a broker with The Jim Allen Group. We have used Cook Shack for all of our events for years. What ever items off the menu are chosen, the food is absolutely fabulous. The staff is very organized and polite. We always depend on them to make us look good and they have never disappointed. Cook Shack is the best of the best. Period.
We used cook Shack as a preferred vendor for The Sutherland where the rehearsal dinner held. Working with Austin to perfect the menu and Tracey to handle the details was so easy! Our guests were raving about the food for days! We are hooked on the hot pimento cheese appetizer! They even let us ship ice cream from Ohio to serve! Every aspect of this event was handled professionally and the staff serving us was fabulous! We highly recommend them!
We used Cook Shack Catering for my daughter's wedding . It was held at The Oaks at Salem in Apex, NC. Austin and his team at Cook Shack Catering totally exceeded expectations. Their food was excellent-classic NC bbq cooked to perfection. His team was professional, helpful and made the entire process easy and worry free. Their menu is extensive and they were willing to customize dishes. I highly, highly recommend Cook Shack Catering!
