After hearing about the famous chicken spaghetti from a friend, I had to try it. The distinct taste is scrumptiously delicious. I definitely plan on being a regular customer! Kanesa Witherspoon


After spending 5.5 years working on my Ph.D. my graduation party was a major celebration of that time. I couldn't have had better service, better food, or better communications. I highly recommend them for anything. They will work with your budget and make you feel like your event is a priority. I love them!!   Dr. Lynsey Madison


The food was delicious!!!! EVERYONE LOVED the BBQ spaghetti with several people requestion the recipe 🙂 The sides were flavorful/well seasoned also. I consider myself a amateur food critic and have not one complaint!! Excellent lunch (and you know it’s good when people are taking to go plates). Dr. Jahana Hill


Pan Handlers Down Home Catering was awesome! The food was delicious! They were very professional, great communicators and easy to work with. I will definitely call them again for my next event.   Jasmin Ruffin


There is normally one word every bride would love to avoid, but rarely does during wedding planning and on THE special day is stress!!! In the area of catering, Pan Handlers Down Home Catering allowed me to experience a stress free environment, and my husband andI are extremely grateful (especially my husband since he probably would have been hostage to the brunt of my frustration)! Pan Handlers provided professional customer service, delicious food for our wedding reception and the presentation of the food was absolutely gorgeous!!!!They’re now my official caterers! I wish I could keep them to myself, but these caterers and their food MUST be shared with the world! What an AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! Kudos!!!!!!!   Much Success, Jonathan & Cecilia Hughley

I have known Costroe for over 4 years now and there has never been a time that I could not depend on him, especially when it came to food. I recently purchased a home and thought that when it came down to a house warming party, I would have time to cook the food that I would like to serve.Between moving and trying to make sure that I had everything in order,time caught up with me quickly, leaving me very little time to even purchase the food yet alone trying to cook. I was skeptical about calling him because I knew he was busy catering other events, but Icalled and he was very accommodating in making sure that my day was a success. I don\'t what I was truly amazed at how quickly he was able to give me not only suggestions and ideas on the types of food serve dat these types of parties, but also his ability in preparing the food and arriving with the food as promptly as he did. My family and friends enjoyed a variety of  delicious foods and I truly have Costroe to thank for it. Quality of food in my book is always better than thequantity of food one may get. God truly had a master plan behind the mastermind of catering...Costroe Palmer! Thanks!   Martha Webb


We first experienced Pan Handlers while attending our friends' wedding. They served pulled pork sandwiches that were absolutely delicious. We knew we'd book them after that! Our experience with Pan Handlers was nothing short of perfect. The presentation was beautiful and their professionalism outstanding. Our wedding was after lunch, so we requested finger foods and didn't think much of it. PH truly went the extra mile! By the time we wound down enough to eat, we were in heaven. They worked very hard and never showed strain. It is evident that they genuinely love what they do and are honored to be there. Kaity Spangler


Type of Event: Wedding Pan Handlers catered mine and my wife's wedding and thefood was amazing as well as the service.


Pan Handlers Down Home Catering did a superb job on my food for my "Hawaiian Nights" celebration! They were able to incorporate my theme into the menu. They were even able to do one of my favorites, a crawfish boil. They serve all of West Alabama and even deliver. It was nice not having to cook or worry about shopping for food. My guests and I absolutely LOVED the food!! Tracy Jemison
