From the time he was a small child, Owner Chef Julio’s interest for art has been a central part of his life. His love of taste, color and texture, flavor, smell and beauty, nature and science come together in the art that is culinary perfection. Chef Julio Avila graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York in 1997, and has worked at four- and five-star resorts and hotels in the United States and on the island of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean, honing his skills. Now he serves up delectable reception fare and delicious menus for all of Houston and the surrounding areas.

"If you want a caterer that makes awesome food, has a top notch staff and is very reasonably priced, book The Hometown Chef now! Seriously, they are amazing! They catered and bartended our wedding and it was such a great experience. They are also wonderful to work with in planning your event. The staff is quick to respond and there's no such thing as a silly question. I can't say enough about how wonderful this company is. If you work with them, you won't be disappointed!" - Lindsay

"Chef Julio was amazing. Having lived in Puerto Rico for several years, I knew that it was meant to be when we found him. When picking our dinner, there was a wide variety of things to choose from and plenty of flexibility to customize the menu. Any questions I had were addressed immediately and the food was deliciously prepared. I can’t say enough for the filet carving station! If I hadn’t been so busy doing wedding things, I would have piled a plate up with those silver dollar rolls and hidden myself in some corner to enjoy them. The staff was very professional and made sure that we were taken care of at all times." - Carissa

"Hometown Chef offers great, communicative service and excellent food. I highly recommend them for weddings! I selected the buffet option, and guests commented that the food was delicious and still hot. We were very impressed with their service before, during and after the event. The owner is very hands-on and truly cares about the bride's (couple's) & guests' experience." - Heather
