We used Corky's Catering for our Holiday Luncheon at Fermilab this year and the entire process from beginning to end went flawlessly. Diane was very informative, helpful, and patient as we were trying to determine what best fit our needs and having to change the quote several times with changes. The food was on time and set up perfectly as promised and the food was amazing! Everyone was happy with the food choice and we will definitely use them again. Thank you Corky's! More...

I work at Target and they got food from Corky’s for the employees for Black Friday. Flavor wise, very decent. Our HR team ordered baked ziti which was unfortunately very overcooked and mushy.

I was extremely pleased with the customer service, delivery driver, and the food (particularly the excellent packaging). The only reason I am giving a 4-star rating is because it was somewhat difficult to the gauge delivery time within a one hour window as our event was downtown on a boat so, I had to meet the driver. Mike was extremely accommodating and made the delivery extremely easy. I highly recommend Corky's Catering. More...

I was skeptical at first when we ordered for my sisters quince I’m more of a traditional girl and would have liked to stick with a more Mexican dish menu. Well let me tell you guys that when I had that chicken Parmesan my whole mouth exploded with flavor! Then the vegetable medley omg!! I couldn’t get enough!! The pork loin was soft tender and all the flavors are so rich an flavorful! I will definitely be ordering from Corky's again they did an amazing job!! Thank you again to the cooks at Corky's and to Diane that helped us pick the delicious menu! More...

I used Corky's for my wedding and I was impressed of the professional service that was given throughout the entire process. The communication was great and the customer service follow up was very accommodating. That level of service carried through from the set up to clean up. The amount of staff available to address any concern was superb. My guest was very please with the presentation and taste of the food stating the quality was that of a restaurant. Kristina and Maria provided GEM (Go Extra Mile) service from beginning to ending. More...

we were going to give a nine due to the slightly stale rye bread and lack of lettuce Tomato on some varieties ex: ham and swiss (the lack of these was noted on the menu) would have been nice tho. & no mayo However, overall we were quite pleased with the generous portions of meat on the sandwiches. Everyone was impressed. No doubt that we will be ordering again. Thank you all for a job well done.Respectfully,Management and staff.Septran bus co. More...

Me and my husband were definitely very careful towards the catering selection. The quality and quantity of food was something extremely important for us. And they were above our expectations. Very efficient and easy to work with and they were able to personalize the menu according to our needs. And after several tastings, hands down Corky's service fullfilled all our needs. We truly couldn't be happier. If you seriously want literally every guest at your wedding to tell you that your food was the best they have ever had at a wedding, definitely get Corky's as your catering service. The food was absolutely incredible. We had salmon, New York strips, vegetable lasagna, roasted vegetables, tri color potatoes. It was all marvelous! Late night bite snacks, kids menu... Plus their staffing was skilled, very friendly and attentive. We cannot recommend their work enough!!We can not stop remembering about the awesome day and big part of the reason is because we chose their service. SEVERAL guests feedback saying that was the best wedding they had ever been! And we do own most of the compliments to Kristina Corky's manager who carefully attended all our requests and made sure to put in practice. She and her staff displayed all the decorations according our check list, just as we wanted them. As well the bar moved smoothly close to the reception, during dinner. Serving the cake at the tables. Attending our request to serve wine at the table during dinner time. Their great set up and clean up time for reception venue and ceremony. Saving the food leftover. We highly recommend Corky's for your special day. They will take wonderful care of you from start until the end!!! If there was a possibility for providing more than 5 starts to them we would!!!

I have been using Corky's Catering for our events in the office. Jennifer stopped by and dropped off some information. She was so personable and sweet I thought I would give them a try. When I thought of Corky's in the past I just thought of fried chicken and potato salad. I tried them once, and keep using them every month. The staff enjoys the food very much!! there are so many choices. The gentleman who delivers the food is always on time and very very nice. I am hard to please and I highly recommend them. More...

Yum-o!
I ordered catering for a family party. When you're dealing with a company you've never had to deal with before you just cross your fingers and hope the food is good. Well, I must say everyone enjoyed the delicious food. Tasty, great food for catering. Very pleasantly surprised.
My only downside is that they give you a 2 hour window and they can arrive anytime between that window. So i told my guests to arrive at the beginning of the window but the food came 2 hours later. I certainly don't think that worth removing star or native review because everything was explained and communicated properly. And ultimately the food was great. Very happy!

Corky's Catering was recommended to me by someone with a lot of experiencing working with caterers. She said the menus offered a broad selection of food, ranging from hot dog and hamburger picnics to elegant events, small or large, at extremely competitive prices. My husband and I volunteered to provide for catering a post-funeral repast to a financially strapped family who had just lost a beloved one. We were looking for good prices and a menu appealing to people who enjoy down-home-cooking. We let one of the family members choose the menu suited to such tastes; she selected the "Country Comforts Buffet", which consisted of fried chicken, BBQ rib tips, baked mac n' cheese, southern-style green beans, and rolls and butter. The price was very good at $8.99 per person. I also purchased a large dessert tray that included a variety of fresh-baked cookies, pecan fudge brownies, lemon bars and raspberry bars, with 70 items altogether, a soda beverage and bottled water service and a coffee service. Originally, we planned to set it all up ourselves with the help of volunteers, but when we became unsure of getting volunteers, we decided to add two attendants to set up, aid in serving and cleaning up at a cost of $208 for two hours. This turned out to be the smartest thing I did all day, after selecting the caterer. We were anxious about everything going smoothly, on top of the ordinary stress of the situation, but our minds were soon put at ease when the first attendant, transporting all of the food and supplies arrived early and was cheerful about waiting 20 minutes for all the mourners to depart for the cemetery. Her car was packed full of boxes of food and equipment for the buffet and we helped her carry everything in and to the lower level of the church where the repast was held. Terri, the attendant, was very pleasant and respectful of the occasion and she went to work immediately, setting up the buffet. At this time, the second attendant, a very nice young man, arrived More...

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so VERY much for providing us with such a great experience yesterday. We talked for hours after the meeting; all of us were very impressed. I will either assume or hope that Cork realizes the gem of employees they have! Your professionalism, industry expertise, mannerism, patience, and knowledge set you (and Cork) apart from the competition. Our meeting with you was not just informative, but fun. The quality of the food speaks for itself but it was your energy and excitement that made the experience quite different and we knew after talking with YOU, we would be signing the contract! Again, Thank YOU. You acted like an owner and we know we are in really good hands. More...
