This will be one of the most unique evenings you will ever experience, there is nothing like this in the state of Texas!   ~Coye and Andi Conner (Troup, Texas)

I have been blessed to travel all across the country and around the world and in my humble opinion, Chef Carlos Villapudua’s unbelievable culinary skills and creations are worth the price of the ticket alone!   ~David Magee, (Dallas, Texas)

My wife and I have driven over twice and brought friends each time for an amazing weekend in Tyler that always includes THE EXPERIENCE.  We have all said this is one of the finest meals we have ever eaten and David Magee’s show rivals anything we have seen in Las Vegas!  ~Tim Andrews ( Shreveport, LA)

We thought the show was amazing, until we experienced the VIP Meet and Greet.  David was so gracious and spent time taking pictures with us but once he sat down to the close-up table THAT was when the REAL experience began!  You CANNOT MISS the VIP!    ~Terry and John Holt, (Gilmer, Texas)
