Ready or not  the holidays are almost upon us and it’s definitely not too early to start thinking about those holiday events that you are responsible for. While there are some things you can do last minute you’d better lock in your catering company now or risk serving Happy Meals to your guests. Your party would definitely have its own hashtag on social media but maybe not in the way that you intended it to.

No worries. We’ve scoured the Metroplex for the 5 best caterers in the Dallas area so that you don’t have to. Our criteria was simpe: great food, imaginative presentations, and great reviews. Here are the companies that made the cut.

1 Cafe Danielle Catering and Events

Cynthia Cathcart and her team bring their A game every time. Not only do they prepare imaginative food that tastes as good as it looks but they also handle the decor and flowers to make your event a total success. Custom menus mean that your dinner party will not be the same as anyone else's. The food? Well, let's just say that it's pure Texas comfort food with a dusting of haute cuisine. Quail Nachos, anyone?

2 Eddie Deen Catering Company

George W. Bush used this company for events as Governor and at his Inaugural Ball when he became president. They've served at Governor RIck Perry's events and at the Winter Olympics. They can definitely handle anything you are planning whether it's at your location or theirs. If you want your guests to have a true taste of Texas, food and ambiance, this is for you. Chicken fried lobster tail, smoked brisket, and more haute Texas fare will keep guests coming back for more.

5 All That Glam

All That Glam/Facebook
As far as we know All That Glam is the only caterer in the area that uses ingredients that are antibiotic & hormone-free, locally sourced, and sustainable. They use farmers that allow them to visit the farm to check on how the animals are raised and who are committed to providing the most natural life possible for the animals they raise. All of that attention to detail is reflected in the flavor and quality of the food on your plate.
