The brownies were amazing

My co-worker shared her brownie with me and it was so good I wanted some more. She said she had never been disappointed with your food. Wish I was able to buy the brownie and food individually.

Their website has made it easier and more efficient to place orders and Alex Valencia, Office Manager, is always available for questions or menu suggestions.

The Best Food ever and great customer service!!!

When I need to cater an event Food First is the first place to come to mind. My co-workers absolutely love it! I’ve had to make a last minute request and they are always willing to assist us. I’ve built a great relationship with Alex and chef and they are truly amazing. If you want some good eating, Food First!

I Really don’t know where to start but everything about Food First is great from the Chef, Alex, and Staff, that gives us all the upmost attention in return, I get from our Staff here at my company alone with Guest-Visitors just how good the food is always. Alex is always with a helping hand and such a great spirit in making your food order work for everyone. I once was told by an Aunt of mine that what makes the food taste so good is the love you put into it and CHEF you have conquered that in making food taste better than good but great.



I book quite a few lunch meetings here at our office. Food First makes everything so easy and fast. First and foremost, the food is absolutely delicious. But what I love most about their service is that it is so easy to order and takes so little time. They are professional and friendly. I cannot say enough great things about FF. And Alex is a delight to work with. 🙂

I would give them a 10 star if that was possible...

I saw the yelp reviews and so I called food first Chicago and asked them to cater a graduation party. I would give them a 10 star if that was possible. From the first phone call interaction they were very responsive, helpful, and patient. They advised me on the menu, worked through changes I requested, etc. they arrived right on time, set up everything beautifully, and the food was awesome!

We had an amazing line up for...

Chef Everardo is amazing. We had an amazing line up for our wedding dinner. Salad with strawberries, mandarins, feta, and almonds. We also had a mango and chipotle marinated grilled chicken, roast pork, buttered corn, a rice pilaf, and garlic mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious! He also can get linens for an amazing price. I was able to bring all of my alcohol and beverages to him to store in the cooler the day before my wedding at Michelle’s Ballroom. All of the servers were great! Well done Chef!

They were accommodating, kind, and...

We had Food First Chicago cater a breakfast for our team of 65+ people. They were accommodating, kind, and had the most delicious food! Easy set up and a very smooth proposal process as well. We will definitely choose Food First again and recommend it highly.
