Our delivery person will set up your food as a self-serve buffet in disposable containers with disposable serving utensils. Sales tax & delivery charges apply. Disposable warming dishes are available for an additional charge. 

FULL SERVICE

Our staff arrives well in advance (usually 90 minutes) to set up a beautiful buffet presentation with chafing dishes, buffet linens and regular serving utensils.  Labor, Set-up, Delivery and Tax are additional.  Click here for additional information about full-service events.

DELIVERY CHARGES

We deliver to most parts of the valley. A delivery charge can range anywhere from $30 to $60 based upon the distance from our kitchen to the event site. An additional charge of $20 is added for deliveries on weekdays before 6am and after 3pm.  View our delivery map.

CANCELLATION

Drop-off orders for less than 40 people need only a 24-hour cancellation notice. Drop-off orders for more than 40 people require at least 72 hour notice. Late cancellations will be charged 50% of the total invoice amount.  All Full-Service events require a minimum of a 30-day notice, otherwise the initial deposit will be forfeited.

ARRIVAL

Our staff will arrive, unload and set-up your order by the start time (eat time) you provided. Due to variable traffic conditions, drop-off lunch deliveries are considered on time within fifteen minutes before or after the scheduled start time. For full service events, catering staff will arrive approximately 1-2 hours prior to start time.

IS THERE REALLY A FREDDY AND IS HE FAT

Yes, there really is.  For years, Freddy was the only cook in the kitchen; tasting every dish before it left the kitchen.  You can imagine what that can do to a person’s figure.  Never Trust a Skinny Cook, right?  Now we have a team of cooks and Freddy has a new dedicated work-out schedule, he’s cooking and eating healthier and he has lost some of the weight.  Fat Freddy got Fit!
