Testimonials

Suzan McLallen, RCA

"My experience with Aunt Sissy's Kitchen was an absolute pleasure. They were faced with a huge crowd (600+) and no kitchen facilities for our annual Art Auction Gala. Their attention to detail, portion concerns and food quality was A+. It was a great experience and I would not hesitate to use them again." - Suzan McLallen, Rockport Center for the Arts


Stan Hulse, PIBA

"For the third time in a row, the PIBA has used the services of Aunt Sissy's Kitchen to cater our annual PIBA Wine Tasting. Although the event features great wines from across the globe, undoubtedly, the success and enjoyment of the event is due in large part to the pairings of the accompanying food items created by Aunt Sissy and her crew." - Stan Hulse, Executive Director, Padre Island Business Association

Joan, thank you for such an incredible evening at the Estelle Stair Gallery. We could not have asked for a more delightful dinner. Your food was amazing and your staff was the most professional I have ever had the pleasure of working with. We especially enjoyed the fabulous Cheesecake Martini Bar.

Joan,

We would like to offer our most sincere gratitude for everything you and your crew did to ensure our wedding was exactly as we hoped. The professionalism you displayed throughout the entire process provided a great deal of comfort to both of us as the day approached. With all of the other details to stress about, it was absolutely wonderful to know neither of us had to be concerned with the quality of food and service you would be capable of offering.

Throughout the night, we received dozens of compliments about you and the food. Personally, we have never really liked anything that we have ever eaten at a wedding, until we enjoyed your food. Both of us would like to thank you so much for everything. It was truly phenomenal!

Thank you so much for everything and we are truly grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you.

Joan,
Thanks again for your many contributions to our Saturday evening event. As the thunderous applause indicated, our guests were very happy with the food you prepared. We could not have been more pleased with the delicious food and excellent service we received from Aunt Sissy's Kitchen for our recent 40th Wedding Anniversary Celebration. Your expertise in menu selection and room layout simplified the planning required, and your staff's smooth efficiency in food service and after-event clean-up allowed us to focus on our guests. We will use Aunt Sissy's Kitchen again for our next event and will definately recommend you to others without hesitation.

Our company was holding a very important VIP reception for leaders and key stakeholders in the Corpus Christi area on the USS Lexington.
We were very unfamiliar with vendors and caterers in the area.  After meeting with a few caterers, I was most impressed by Aunt Sissy's Kitchen.

Joan Sowash was wonderful to work with and had a keen eye for detail.  So much so, that she assisted me with everything from florals to food.  The menu was not only incredible but the presentation was beautiful.   All of the VIP guests from the CEOs,  area Mayors, and invited Congressman mentioned how delicious the food was.    I most certainly will contact Joan again to work on my events (and I already have!)

Aunt Sissy's Kitchen went above and beyond to insure my event was very successful.

Stacy and Lee

Joan, We just want to take a moment to thank you sooooooo much for being the wedding caterer for our big day. It is obvious that we made the right decision by choosing you. You and your staff showed great patience and professionalism while serving our group and it helped make our wedding day more perfect than we ever could have imagined. While we got many compliments on the venue, photographer, speeches, etc., the one compliment that we heard the most was how amazing the food was. People were happy that it wasn't the standard wedding food and were dying for seconds and even thirds. It was simply amazing and everyone enjoyed every bit of it! You and your staff are amazingly skilled, professional, helpful, and easy to work with, but more importantly, the food was so delicious! Thank you again for everything!

Dave Waller

Joan, thank you so much for the wonderful service and food presented at Ashley and Daniel's Wedding Reception.  We had so many positive comments from the guests on the food.  It was by far the best catered dinner we have experienced.  That chicken pasta dish was really good. I know why it's so popular. You staff was courteous and professional.

You daughter did an excellent job managing the bar. She is a hard worker and packed up all the extra stuff for hauling out to the truck.  You have a good product: Really good food and excellent service. You guys did all you said you would do.

Thank you.

Andrea and Norman

Thank you so much Joan!  You were absolutely amazing to work with.  You were so much more than a caterer!  You provided sound guidance on various items from day one, and did it out of sincere care and concern.  Aside from your food being DELICIOUS, your service and attention exceeded all expectations.  I knew immediately at our tasting that you would be a great caterer, but you really went above and beyond in every aspect and we truly appreciate you and your family's work.  Your commitment and passion in what you do is evident.  THANK YOU!!!!!!!”

I just wanted to say how Happy and Impressed I was with your team.   Not only were they prompt in arriving and ready to serve, the food was DELISH!   Your Crew did an awesome job of feeding our crowd of  300 guests.  We had so much good feed back on the food from our tenants and for that we are eager for next year.  Another note please let Greg know that he was Awesome.  Till next year.  Hope you and your team have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
