I called two days before an event that I had planned on preparing a buffet for myself. After a last minute emergency I realized that I did not have enough time and was panicked. I posted a request for recommendation on FB and chose Edibles Rex as they were the first one recommended. Boy, did I get lucky! Michelle Deland was great! Everything was handled via email and phone! So easy peasy! I walked into a great spread with so little effort thanks to Michelle DeLand and Edible Rex!

We started hiring Edibles Rex to cater our annual leisurely pool party, then for our semi-annual home owners association meetings, and now we also hire them to cater our corporate events. Now, I’m thinking we should just hire them for Sunday dinners. The prep, the food, the service, the staff is impeccable. For our most recent event held at a corporate office in Auburn Hills, MI, we had a buffet style lunch. The food arrived on time, and as if it had just come off the stove. The Mediterranean entrees are a favorite of ours. The ordering is easy, the set-up stress free and the food is delicious! Chef Abdullah is a rock star! During our corporate event, word and aromas had spread through the offices and people started to line up to grab whatever little had been left over after the meetings had ended. What a compliment that must be. The attendees all wanted to know who catered the food and when the next meeting would be. Thank you to the entire Edibles Rex staff and see you at the next event.

Edibles Rex is just fantastic! They have without a doubt met or exceeded all of our needs for the NSLP. The Edibles Rex team was always there to help whenever it was needed, even after normal work hours. Their contribution made our program a success, not only with some of the NSLP compliance issues, but by the quality and great food choices provided for the students at Vista Meadows Academy.

Edible Rex Catering did a FABULOUS job for my clients wedding. I am an Event Planner and Edible Rex catered a wedding at the Dossin Museum on Saturday. Marie Cole and the entire crew were flexible professional, and timely. But more importantly the food was SUPERB! The presentation was absolutely beautiful and the Guest raved over how good it was, especially the stuffed chicken and Pasta! In my line of work I utilize a lot of caters. This was my first time utilizing and this was the best decision we could have made. The staff was friendly and very helpful! I will definitely use them again!

Edibles Rex catered our wedding at the Detroit Historical Museum. I’ll start by saying how wonderful and responsive they were with my wife and I during the planning period. I felt like I had nothing to worry about which is great because planning a wedding is so stressful. They worked with our budget and made sure we were getting the most for our money and the food felt and tasted first class. We had a strolling dinner and our guests loved all of the options. After the wedding my dad couldn’t stop talking about how friendly and attentive the staff was. The whole thing was a dream. There wasn’t a single complication or issue that came up before, during, or after our reception. They set everything up with the venue which was one less thing on our plate. I really could go on and but their work speaks for itself. A big thank you to the whole staff for making our wedding amazing and delicious.

Edibles Rex catered my graduation party, and wow was I impressed. I’m usually skeptical about your typical catered food and prefer homemade, but their vast menu options and home-cooked feel was just what I wanted. My friends and family loved the food. They also worked with the venue to plan table and room settings so my mom and I could focus on the important stuff – good food, friends, family, and celebration! Would 10/10 recommend.

I typically do not do these reviews but felt that the spectacular food and great service provided on a special day deserved recognition. My nephew’s graduation was catered by Edibles Rex and everyone was thoroughly impressed with the food that was served. The chicken was very moist and with a nice kick. That was my favorite I could eat it all day. The person who delivered the food was so kind and so professional. Some of the hot dog buns were missing but the gentleman took the time to drive back and deliver them. Everything was presented beautifully including the fruit and cookie trays that were not only very tasty but expertly presented. 5 star all the way for me.

My husband and I chose their “Strolling Supper” for our September wedding and could not have been happier with the end result. We were slightly worried about going with them since we didn’t have a chance to sample the food beforehand, but it sounded delicious and everyone was so helpful over the phone that we knew we had to give it a shot. Our choices:
Beef tenderloin and charbroiled salmon filet – Phenomenal. There was even a guy there to carve the beef for us. Fancy!
Mediterranean food spread – Everything was delicious and perfect for an appetizer or side. Loads of grape leaves, hummus, tabbouleh, pita bread, olives, pickled beets, all presented beautifully on a tiered stand.
Smashed potato bar – I don’t even know where to begin with this. They provide martini glasses to hold your garlic mashed potatoes, which you can load up with all your favorite toppings – mushroom gravy, cheddar cheese, green onions, crispy bacon, you name it. We actually have photos of my husband seductively eating his third helping of potatoes. Everyone was obsessed with this whole setup, and every time I eat mashed potatoes I want to put them in a martini glass.
Ice cream sundae bar – As good as it sounds. Delicious ice cream, every sauce you can think of, and plenty of sprinkles, chocolate chips, and nuts. It went great with the cake.
We stocked the bar ourselves per their recommendation, and they provided a bartender for a very reasonable rate. All the staff was friendly and attentive. Not only was the food out of this world, but they also helped us with other details. We got married at the Flynn Pavilion on Belle Isle, which provided us with tables and chairs. Edibles Rex outsourced linen and chair cover rentals and coordinated everything so the companies knew when everything had to be delivered and picked up. It couldn’t have gone more smoothly and the price was very reasonable for everything they did for us. If I knew everything was going to turn out so wonderfully, I wouldn’t have stressed so dang much. We definitely have Edibles Rex to thank for taking so much stress out of the planning process and working hard to make sure everything was perfect.
