Customer Reviews:

Dave - SLOW FOOD Made our day, Our wedding day couldn't have been better even with the cold and rain. Your pizza appetizers so hot and fresh people were amazed you cooked them right in front of them! And the full buffet incredible. It, you, your wife and son's word's can't say enough. Thanks you Megan & Joe 10/4/14    

Dave thank you so much for the wonderful food you provided for our picnic. It was a huge hit and people are already asking if we can find another reason to work with you again. We appreciate you helping make our day successful - joyously so! Tracy & Jan 9/20/14

What a BLAST!! Firin' Up the Fox was Great. Thank you all for your Support. 

Dave my wife and I were at the information tent at Riverfest, When we asked what food we should try the guy said "Dave's Slow Food" WOW WAS HE RIGHT! We stopped by and wound up just hanging out sampling your stuff. Man they ROCKED! And the BBQ sauce, I would pay you the 20.00 you joked about. We wished we tried the pulled pork pizza but we were just to full. My wife and I are still fighting over the pulled pork we brought home. Dude thanks for being so Kind. Well done - Jeff 6/8/14 

Dave!! Thank you SO much for making my party such a hit! Everyone LOVED the food! The crew you brought was awesome too! I even caught Kelly walking around cleaning up! Also, thanks for making me get back there and roll up my sleeves! Not only was the food great but we had a fun time having you there! Thanks again! Natalie 6/2/14

Thanks again for everything Dave. YOU MADE THE PARTY!!!! Actually got caught eating leftover ribs when I got up this morning.... Soooooooooo good. Continued success my friend. Jim 6/1/14    

Dave thanks so very much for the great food and allowing me to just enjoy Carlos birthday party. When I asked my Mom if I should do the party myself she said "No Way - Call Dave at Slow Food and let him cater it, You can then just sit back and have fun" She was 100% right. Again thank you Dave -  Renee   

What great food! Thank you for all of your hard work! Julia

Dave well done! When I said "You decide the menu for my pizza party" I am so glad I did. Man you nailed it. Thanks again. John   

GREAT PORK - It was a great sandwich at the race and I hope you sold out. There was only one huge problem... I had to listen to my daughter rave about the sandwich the rest of the day and ask why I could not cook that well. I was the one with the son and daughter early in the morning and they didn't even put the BBQ sauce on the pork. Great food and hope to see you back next year. B Perry 

Dave I just want to say "Your Family is amazing" Your Son Nick, Pal Jason, and your nephew Steven. I have never meet a bunch of folks that are so willing to help out. And I am a competitor. You guys set a great example. Thank you Christen and Brian.  


Some people think life is too short, so fast is the way to go. Slow Food challenges that by saying, life's to short not to slow down, especially when sharing time with people you care about.

I am blessed by each and everyone of you, for your kind comments. It keeps me coming back day after day. I am grateful. 

Thank you All. Dave
