As a host to about 80-100 guests, the most compliments I received was about the food! Dave Starkey provided Pizza, Sushi and Caesar salad - sounds like a crazy combo, but it totally worked and everybody from 3 to 83 were so happy and satisfied! The food truck was awesome and my kitchen stayed clean - that's saying a lot for a big party! Thanks Dave and Rachel, you ROCK!!

Starkeys came to our Sugar Bowl graduation party, and the food and service was fantastic! We had 200+ people, and they got fed well! Thank you for making it so easy to enjoy our graduates and celebrate with them. (And, my daughter declared your pizza to be awesome - great crust!)
"Starkeys Food Truck rocks! We hired them for a small, outdoor event. They were incredibly easy to work with and gave great advice on creating a menu. They arrived on time, ready to get to work serving amazing food to our guests. They were also very covid-compliant.
I'm not gonna lie, we are pizza and sushi snobs - although we don't usually have it together. But hey, it's 2020 -anything goes, right? Both the pizza and sushi were fresh, flavorful and our friends are still raving about it. Thanks Starkeys for a great experience! We're already looking for another reason to bring you back in 2021."
"Thank you to Chef Dave and Rachel for helping us with a small wedding in Tahoe City and setting the standards for a covid safe dinner. You were great partners and an absolute pleasure to work with.My niece wanted a pizza truck for her wedding and you met all of our needs and beyond.We only had pizza and salad and it was exactly as we imagined. We loved your brick oven pizza and I think the Serrano pepper one was one of the favorites! I would definitely recommend Starkeys for anything in the future!"

"I was named Best Man for friends wedding. So when he asked me to organize his Bachelor Party in Truckee, I knew I had to come through with the goods on many fronts. Getting quality food for a group of mid to late 40 year olds isn't easy. But luckily I found Starkeys and I can honestly say everyone loved it. They combine pizza and sushi and it couldn't have been more tastier. Dave and his wife Rachel run a very organized operation. They were very up front with me on how everything works. Besides being good business people, they are quality family people also. I appreciate their work ethic and quality of service. If you have a party of 20 or more, I would highly recommend Starkeys for any sort of party or get together in the Truckee-Tahoe area. Thank you!"

"I highly recommend their service, they made my wedding on 04/20/19, all the guests loved the food, the ease and speed they served the food to everyone. And of course, I can not forget to mentioning that they have high varieties in the menu and still made at the request of my husband a top for special pizza. I just wanted to say thank you so much for such flexibility and a great job!"
~Fernanda, Truckee CA
"We hired Starkeys to do our late night food for our wedding at West Shore Cafe in Tahoe and they did such an amazing job! They were so responsive throughout the planning process and were so flexible and accommodating to everything we wanted. Because we had such a large dinner and a lot of snacks throughout the night, we opted for just pizza and it was so delicious!!! There were a lot of different types of pizza and every single one of them was amazing! All our wedding guests loved the pizza. It was such a big hit and made our wedding night so much fun!"

“We hired Starkeys for my husbands 50th Birthday gathering, a group of 8 adults and 4 children. The chef, Dave was a pleasure to have join us in this intimate setting - friendly, accommodating and personable. And, wow, the sushi was out of this world. We're sushi snobs and this sushi exceeded our expectations. There was a wide variety of very fresh fish and creative presentations. We could order what we liked or enjoy Dave's creations. Even several of my guests who don't eat sushi could not stop raving. Dave provides back up pizza for those who don't eat sushi. They were quite tasty. The kids were eager to try it ALL as well. Our guests have been inquiring about Starkeys, as they want to use them for their events. I highly recommend Dave Starkey. Top Notch!!”

“Starkeys was Excellent! We used them to cater our wedding with 150 guests. All tables at the wedding were served in a timely fashion which was impressive. They were also extremely accommodating to our guests with gluten intolerance or celiac. The team was friendly, responsive and informative. The pizza was delicious and all of the guests raved about it. I would highly recommend using starkeys for your catering needs.”

"I had to plan the company luncheon and my bosses wanted something different like a Food Truck. So I scrambled calling so many food trucks who were either booked that day or didn't even return my calls. Not these guys! I spoke directly with Rachel who was such a sweetheart and she explained everything so clearly to me and always got back to every inquiry I had (and it was a lot)! Just excellent customer service from her! And then on the day of the event her husband Dave came out even if it was pouring rain and delivered an impeccable product. Just their menu alone got people buzzing in my office because you cannot help wonder about pizza and sushi but it works! It sounds unusual but really it works! The food was delicious and Dave is a riot! He totally cracks me up. He is in fact a culinary chef and uses only the finest ingredients! No cheap materials here! Both Rachel and Dave were such a joy to work with and they both made me look good as my luncheon was a success. I highly recommend that you check out Starkeys for your catering needs because this is one of the best Teams I have ever had the pleasure of working with! Thank you Rachel and Dave!!"

“Dave catered our New Year's Eve party this year - and it was OFF THE HOOK! Seriously, he made the party. While the truck is parked for the winter (we've had him roll the truck in for family and corporate events with huge success in the past), this year he came with buckets of sushi, sliders, pizzas, drinks and tons of surprise. Both kids and adults had plenty to eat, and everyone had a blast - not to mention we could actually enjoy our party rather than work it! 10 out of 10 for Starkey!”
~Todd, Truckee CA
"We always look forward to working with Dave and his hard-working crew! Starkey's is the best pizza truck in the area, and sure to provide your guests with the best interactive food experience, and the most delicious artisan pizza ever!"
~Liane McCombs Wedding and Event Planning
"I hired Starkey's Food Truck to cater a private event (a 50th birthday party with 25 guests) a little over a year ago. It was a last minute thing that was planned in about 7 days and they were able to fit us in after a busy weekend of weddings and other events. Dave made the menu planning very easy. And the delivery was fantastic. We did the sushi/pizza combo and it worked so well! The food truck catering was a surprise for the birthday boy and he LOVED it. We look forward to hiring Starkey's for more events."
~Gretchen, Truckee CA
“Around noon, Starkey’s Food Truck rolled up to treat everyone to pizza and sushi. Yes, I know, it’s an odd combination, but the food was actually amazing! I had pizza multiple times (as did my wife) and we loved it! I didn’t partake in any of the sushi, but those that did were surprised at how good it was coming from a food truck! Talking to Dave (owner of the food truck), he was floored by the amount of people at the event and guaranteed us he’ll be back next year. That makes for a happy Tony – that pizza was delicious!”
~Axial Fest, Donner Pass CA
“My husband and I have been a fan of Dave's since the Dragonfly days, so when we were planning our wedding he was our first choice. The food was awesome (of course - pizza AND sushi, how could you go wrong?!) and he was able to create a menu that suited everyone's dietary restrictions. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a more casual alternative for their wedding!”
