Client Reviews

Hi Vikki,

I’ve been meaning to send you this note all week…

I want to say THANK YOU for providing us with a DELICIOUS breakfast!  Everyone loved it! It was perfect! Folks love the French toast you’ve made in the past and now love this one too!  All I heard were positive comments on the food.  I just wanted to let you know you and your team out did themselves and look forward to being able to order from you again when we have another ‘knock-out’ quarter. 

I totally have you at the top of my list for caterers and always give out your info when anybody asks about catering within or outside of Dell. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I coordinate a lot of training events and normally the food is satisfactory— it keeps stomachs from growling, but is nothing to write home about. Vikki catered an event for me yesterday and this was the first time I have EVER had such enthusiastic praise for the food from every single attendee (there were 20 people at this event). The quality of the food was outstanding. The service impeccable. I highly recommend her for catering of any type of event. She’s a true professional, an exceptional chef and has a wonderful personality. No need to look anywhere else.

- Donna Taylor, Assistant Director of Training Development, Texas State University


I so much enjoyed meeting you & Don and your helpers at Kenny Hilbig/John McGannon’s open house. Your creative food was beautiful and tasty. I’ve been in the restaurant business 36 years, thou I can’t even cook, wait, bartend- but I do so admire those who can and do it so well. It’s a pleasure to know you.

- Beau Theroit, owner Oasis Restaurant in Austin


The owner, Vikki Bowen, is an amazing, creative chef. She can adapt to any theme and is completely and totally dedicated to quality. Her entire staff is hard working and conscientious. When I have used caterers before, I felt I had to micromanage every aspect of the event. With Vikki, I know she is overseeing everything for me and I can relax and leave it to her. I cannot have a party or event now without Vikki and her wonderful Staff!

- Karen Galindo, Owner of Green House Mall Austin & San Antonio


Breakfast was absolutely delicious! Many people were asking where it was from and wanted your information. I told them the name of your company and your name, but when you come back to Capital Medical Clinic for lunch on the 24th, could bring some business cards? I would love some for myself as well so I can refer you to other reps or doctors. Thanks for everything!

- Natalie Perry, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals


Vikki, just a little follow up to say thanks again for a very nice meal! I’ve been getting lots of feedback from our members, and they all enjoyed it. Our two members with dietary problems were absolutely thrilled with their special meals. Loved meeting your children! Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas. Looking forward to another great party catered by you in 2012.

- Margaret Seals, Williamson County Master Gardner’s


All went so well last night. Thank you to you and your staff. They were wonderful.

- Stephanie Dempsey, Executive Director, Austin Community College Foundation


Everything was fantastic and we had a great time. Thanks so much!! Merry Christmas! I look forward to working with you again.

- Susan Pike, MD, Scott & White


Thanks for bumping our lunch order up to 12 on such short notice. You have been a pleasure to work with as always! I look forward to the next time.

- Debbie Field, MA, Assistant VP for Public Affairs, Texas A&M Health Science Center


Again I am thrilled with your service! The food is amazingly good, so many people raved about it, some asking for the name of your business. Everything was wonderful, from the presentation to the food. Thank you again for such wonderful service, can’t wait to work with you again on another Dell luncheon. BTW- the brownies were a huge hit last week! I swear I saw men arguing over who were going to get the last few to take home, lol.

- Angie, Dell Administrative Assistant


I wanted to drop a line to say thanks and that the caterer has done an outstanding job and the food delicious! :) They are a BIG improvement from Jason’s Deli. Jason’s Deli is okay, but this blows them out of the water.

- Mario Mokarzel, Grant Specialist, Central GREAT Center & Texas Teacher Credential Project


One of my coworkers was there and he told me that the food was fantastic and that your staff was great. Everything was delivered on time and delicious! We don’t have events in Round Rock often but I am holding on to your information! Thank you for all you did!

- Stella Earhart, Administrative Coordinator, Texas Center for the Advancement of Literacy and Learning, Texas A&M University


Your strawberry shortcakes were fabulous. Everybody was so complimentary and impressed. One person sent word back to us in the kitchen that it was the best strawberry shortcake she had ever had! I told them I could not take the credit for the great cakes but I could take the credit for finding you!
Not only was the cake great, you packed it very well for transport, which I appreciate. My team cooks again at the end of October. I will be contacting you with my assignment. You are now an honorary member of the First Baptist Church of Austin cooking team! Thanks again.

- Kandilyn Ash, Attorney at Law


The breakfast was perfect! Thank you! I love the fruit in the cups- we’ll need to do that again next time. Several people told me the meal was yummy (and I know it was because I ate it too). It cracks me up how quick your bacon disappears- I bet I had to open the 2nd container about 15 min into the event- they love it!

- Sumer Perkins, Events Coordinator, Dell Software & Peripherals Co-Marketing


My name is Dee Dee, I walked off without introducing myself, my apologies! Your soup (and sandwiches) were DELICIOUS! You mentioned you were going to update the recipe with the Vegetable base and could send me the recipe. I would love to make it for my daughter and I. I was also wondering, did you blanch and peel the pablano? Thanks so much! This is by far one of the BEST lunches! Very good and light!

- Dee Dee Ramirez, Dell, Inc.


I was just talking to one of the board members and she commented that the food was another work of art at the show. She couldn’t believe how beautiful you could make it all work. Thanks so much again for your work, your enthusiasm and your contribution to this next big thing in Round Rock.

- Cathy Kincaid, Executive Editor, Community Impact Newspaper


I absolutely love your brownies and wanted our guests to have an opportunity to experience them too and they LOVED them! It was a perfect way to end the meeting this afternoon. Thanks again to you and your team! We look forward to using you again in the very near future!

- Regina Williams, JMJ Associates, LLP


Thank you and Abbi for the wonderful food & service you provided for our 4th of July party. I was so glad to meet you and the help you gave me was above & beyond anything I could have asked for. You do a fantastic job & we will not only use you in the future, but we’ll also recommend your company to our friends

- Lynne Crowder


Thank you so much for the peanut butter fudge brownies! They are delicious! Also thank you for the other food you made! I love the strawberries! It was nice meeting you!

- Erin (11 year old)


Bowties to Blue Jeans has quickly become my Go To-caterer at Dell. Vikki has cornered the market on “gourmet to go”, with exceptional food, reliable service and impeccable quality all around.

- Camille Fajardo, S & P Events Specialist, Dell Global Relationship Marketing


Our customers are still talking about the party and food! Thank you again!!

- Shannon Davidson, Dal Tile, Austin


Hi Vikki ~ WOW – let me say again how thankful I am that I called you!!!! Seriously – I’m getting rave reviews about the food (which is a HUGE part of our meetings with WW)! You made me look GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks again! I promise we will be using you in the future!!!

- Michelle, Weight Watchers Territory Manager


Smoked Gouda Stuffed Chicken Breast wrapped in Bacon, Orzo Pasta Salad, Stuffed Strawberries, etc. The food was the best I have had at a Realtor’s Party!

- Emma Polk, Coldwell Bankers


Vikki, We had a fabulous event and we got wonderful feedback on the food! Thank you and your staff for helping host this event!

- Lauri Mahnke, Round Rock Area Arts Council


Thank all of you for the amazing menu and service at Jayme & Jeff’s wedding reception, you were just great to work with AND we so enjoyed the leftovers! They were a life saver. Hopefully, we’ll see you again.

- Sharon & Mike Albert, Ft. Worth


The shower was wonderful and the food was perfect. Thank you so much for all you did for us from your service to the presentation of your food. Everything was amazing.

- Michelle Richter


The baby shower was wonderful and your food was fantastic. If I ever get to do another event here that requires something other then bar-b-que and beer I will certainly contact you. Your husband asked how I found out about you and it was through Michelle and she used to work at Dell and you catered quarterly events for them. Anyway the food was great. Thank you!

- Kristie from Omaha, NE (Grandma)


Hi Vikki! I just wanted to thank you again. The food was wonderful! I hope I have opportunities to use you again.

- Linda Schmitt, Murder at the Four Deuces, Georgetown


Vikki, Thanks again for providing us with a delicious dinner at Angel Springs Event Center last evening. Everyone seemed to enjoy the meal and our vegetarians particularly felt included in the festivities with the yummy pasta all their own. At my table, a vote reveled that both the dump cake eaters and the chocolate brownie eaters loved their desserts, and almost everyone at the table went back for seconds of pasta and the amazing “arugula & roasted grapes salad”. There was scarcely a morsel left on a plate! I will certainly spread the word about Bowties to BlueJeans Catering in Sun City. Best wishes for continued success in your business.

- Margaret Seals, Master Gardner’s Georgetown, Texas


We owe you a HUGE thank you! You and your family were absolutely wonderful to work with, and we only heard raves about the food last night. Michelle and I feel very fortunate that we selected you as our caterer, and you are number one in Bill’s book as well (ant that is a difficult book to get into). You worked wondered with that old, cheap range! You worked truly above and beyond the call of duty and relieved me of a great deal of stress. Thank you so much. My son, Jeff, and his wife, Karen, plan to recommend you if they ever hear of anyone needing a caterer in the Austin area.

- Debbie Taff, San Saba


Chef Vikki Bowen did my food and flowers for my wedding. It was like a dream!

- Rees & Jennifer Newlin, Austin
