husbands surprise 50th birthday party. He was very surprised. The food was great and I just want you
to know the hostess (Carrie) that did the running around and the food did a most excellent job!! With no
other help she was amazing. A lot of people has said she was very good and cordial. About 98% of
the people that I invited did not even know your place existed. I hope this brings more business for
you. Enjoy the decorations."

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Fabulous Fifties Hall in Tacoma that was catered by Taste of the
Town. Everything was amazing. The food was indescribably amazing and the staff was very accommodating. We
are still getting calls have happened without the help of Jimmy and his staff. We were able to have a couple days to
prepare and set up and our relationship between the staff was laid back, cool and professional. Everyone has an
dream image of how they want their wedding to turn out and this by far bypassed all expectations. Thank you some
much for everything and we will be back for several more friends weddings who have already told us this will be the
place for them. We will never forget Jimmy and his staff because they played a huge role making this dream wedding
surpass our dreams.

We just wanted to thank you again for such a great event last Sunday, 12 Sep.
The food was plentiful and very delicious. You were right on time and the set up of
the Fellowship Hall was smooth and very pleasant. Your helpers were cheerful,
kind, and industrious. Clean up was great too! I just can’t say enough positive
things. Everyone enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.
We will definitely (Lord willing) ask for your services again.
May God bless you and your staff.

I thought the lunch was really enjoyable, Cindy. Things were fresh and
warm, and I think the caterers did a nice job of setting up.
I loved the food! I thought it was a nice change.
Food was great - everything was fine.
It was BETTER than what we had before!
The rice had great flavor although it was a little soft.
I really liked lunch—I thought they did a good job and appreciated the
number of toppings I could put on my taco.
I thought lunch was quite tasty, especially the rice.
Enjoyed the selection of toppings
