  • If you are even questioning which caterer to use, look no further. Cook Shack is seriously the best caterer there is out there. I worked in the wedding industry for several years, so for my own wedding... I wanted three things 1. Amazing tasting food 2. Food served well (right temperature, good timing, etc.) 3. And the best service out there. I promise you Cook Shack is all three of those things. Do not be fooled into thinking that BBQ is all they do best. They practically let my husband and I handpick our southern staple "stations". Although my wedding was pretty I think :), the number one thing our guests keep talking and raving about was the food!!! Austin, Tracey, and the Cook Shack Team are seriously the best out there.

  • The food was amazing! Everyone is still raving about it and it's almost been three weeks! The folks at cook shack are so nice and helpful! We had no idea what we were getting into with catering and Tracey walked us through everything we needed! They make sure you're taken care of and they make sure you at least get a bite to eat! So sweet! 10/10 if you're in the NC triangle area and news an event catered look no further!

  • Cook Shack catered our wedding Spring 2017. The food was phenomenal and the service was the BEST! Communication with them is superb. Tracey always emailed be back right away with answers to any questions I had. They even plated our dessert table and cut and served our wedding cake, neither of which they supplied the food for. All our guests raved about the fantastic food and great service. They boxed up all the leftover food, including the desserts and cake, and even put them in our vehicles. We wish they had a restaurant because we would be loyal customers!

  • Austin and his team drove 3.5 hours to cater our daughter's wedding on 3.18.17 in SC. Everything was absolutely excellent. Our southern menu included crab dip w/pita, hot pimento cheese dip, quesadillas, Caesar salad, pulled pork, shrimp & grits, red potato bar, baked beans. The staff were attentive, friendly and efficient. Professional in every way. Even including 7 hours driving, the price was comparable to local pricing. I had previously used Cook Shack for business events of 75 and 650 people and on 3.30.17 an event for 950 people. The food and service at each event was excellent and far surpassed the quality of past catering companies I've used. I've already booked Cook Shack for a Jan 2018 event. No need to look any further, Cook Shack is simply the best catering company you will ever find.

  • Cook Shack was the best vendor we dealt with!! Austin and Tracey are amazing to work with. Tracey emails back really fast and they are so willing to help. They helped light candles on the tables too in addition to serving the food. The food is the best and Austin makes sure that everything stays warm and is fresh. It was cold on my wedding night and they even threw in a hot chocolate bar. I will definitely use them again in the future for other events!!!

  • This catering company is everything and more. Austin, Tracey and staff are so professional, hospitable, and kind. I will never forget when we came in for our tasting, Austin was there waiting for us. The other bride was not able to make it, but they still cooked everything on our menu PLUS some more so we could try different items. It honestly felt like a family dinner, so comfortable and homey. Austin stayed with us the whole time with his undivided attention. He truly made us feel so special. On top of that the food was incredible. And on top of THAT, we found out all left overs are packaged by local volunteers, frozen, and donated to those in need. The amazing food was one of things our wedding guests raved about and still continue to talk about. Great people and a wonderful business. Thank you Cook Shack!

  • If I could give Cook Shack an extra star, I would. I can't speak more highly of Cook Shack as a whole -- absolutely everything from the coordination, food, and service was phenomenal. Tracey was in constant contact with my wedding coordinator throughout the planning process and was a pleasure to work with, and was very responsive. I've been to many weddings where the food was more or less "OK", but the food served at our reception was similar to something I'd lovingly cook up and serve at home -- it was hearty, comforting, and delicious! We had more than enough food for all of our guests and vendors (which was a big concern of mine prior to the day-of since we had a rather large guest list). The staff went above an beyond their call of duty to offer courteous buffet and clean-up service, make sure my husband and I were well fed and watered, and assist in a time of mini-panic in terms of decor set-up. You'll be hard pressed to find another caterer in the Raleigh/Durham area who offers t... Read more

    Meaghan - we thoroughly enjoyed helping to make your big day such a success!! The entire event was beautiful and we were more than happy to help with moving the wedding decor. Thank you for your gracious review.

  • I couldn't even begin to do justice as to how wonderful Cook Shack was. My daughter's wedding was this past Saturday and Cook Shack out of Louisburg, NC catered. The reception was in Market Hall in Raleigh - so don't be afraid they won't come to Raleigh. I mean Louisburg to Raleigh isn't far but some folks may think it is. I am thrilled that my wife and our daughter chose them. Cook Shack was: - A pleasure to deal with. - Responsive - Reasonably priced - Professional and friendly - And...The food was fantastic! Plus, all the folks helped me out in a small emergency/crisis. The wedding planner called us at 4:00PM to let us know that certain things - some heavy - had not been moved from storage in the reception site to the wedding ceremony venue - with the ceremony to start at 5:15PM. Every person from Cook Shack cheerfully volunteered to help out and they turned this emergency into a non-event with quick actions and strong backs.

  • Don't even bother looking anywhere else- CookShack is the BEST! The number of guests that told us our wedding food was the best they have ever had was insane. Such easy folks to work with and they truly made our wedding day so easy and enjoyable. Would highly recommend the cheese quesadillas as an appetizer, beef brisket and the cornbread as part of your main meal, and adding on the ICE CREAM BAR! Our guests absolutely loved the Howling Cow ice cream CookShack provided. I wish we could married again purely for the food! :) Thank you, CookShack - truly made our wedding perfect!

  • I can't say enough about Cook Shack Catering! My now husband was deployed while I was picking venues, so I was very hesitant to make choices without him. . . but then I sat with Austin and tried their food! I had already tasted with two other catering companies and wasn't very excited about either one, but after my tasting I immediately got in touch with Drew and told him how excited I was about Cook Shack's food. With a May 28th wedding date, we knew we couldn't wait, so I booked them! Austin and Tracey were amazing every step of the way. We were able to go to the group tasting they provide for all of their couples and Drew was able to experience just how amazing their food tastes and how wonderful they are. Austin even made a hor d'oeuvre for us that isn't on their menu (although it probably should be)! Our wedding day was very hot, and immediately following the ceremony Austin personally brought the entire wedding party beverages and hor d'oeuvres while we were taking pictures. On t... Read more

  • Cook shack is worth EVERY penny. They are so professional, responsive, and their food is beyond excellent. I feel like for what you get, you are stealing that food away! It is like your grandmomma's cooking x30. There are no hidden costs. What they charge you per head is what you pay. Austin has been catering with his father since he was a teenager and it shows through his food. He knows what he is doing in the kitchen! They took care of everything! At one point I saw Austin escorting my 85 year old grandmother back from the buffet and carried her food for her. Their staff is SO attentive and Tracey (I'm not sure her official title) manages e-mails, quotes, questions, and any concerns you may have. I had numerous conversations with her and she was always extremely patient and helpful no matter what! We got SO many compliments on our food, a lot of guests said it was the best wedding food they have ever had. We loved Cook Shack! They're the best. Highly recommend.

  • My new husband and I absolutely love Tracey and Austin. The food is to die for delicious. Cook Shack did our cocktail hour, our dinner, and desserts. Everything was absolutely wonderful. Everybody from my vegetarian friend, to my friend who is also a professional chef agreed the food was perfect. I remember when we originally booked our wedding, Austin hesitated for a second mentioning that he had a very large event already scheduled that date -- however, not only did his team manage to accommodate us, Austin still showed up at our venue to ensure everything was going smoothly and hand deliver us lemonade during our photo shoot on a brutally scorching day. (We joked that he was our hydration ninja... darting in and out of the photographer's range so quickly.) So book these wonderful people early! You don't want to miss out on them. I only wish that their rental prices were a little bit better. I found much better deals just buying table cloths online, and renting table... Read more
