Jewell's Gumbo and More - Mrs. Vida and her staff were awesome. The food was
DELICIOUS. The funeral sandwiches were amazing. Her staff even helped with
decorating. This is an great team. I had a FABULOUS 50th birthday party. We will do it
again with Jewell's Gumbo and More for my Dad's 80th birthday. Highly recommend her.
Thank you Mrs. Vida for all of the special attention and detail. You have a fan for life.

I was so delighted with the food that I ordered last year that I asked them to cater my
birthday party this year. I don't know what she puts in those meatballs but they are to die
for! Whenever I need a special dish I'll always think of Jewel's.

I found Vida and her amazing cooking skills through Facebook and oh my gosh I’m so
happy that I did! My husband is from east Texas and so he’s use to Louisiana flavors
and food but being in San Antonio he has been missing it.....well Mrs Vida 100% made
him and I happy with that amazing gumbo, butter parsley rice, and don’t get me started
on the rum infused pecan balls!!!! We will definitely being using her services often and
referring her out so if you like good food then your in the right place! Thank you Mrs

Delicious authentic southern cuisine. Chef Vida is the best. I would not hesitate to contact her for your next event. Food is gooooooood!

I absolutely love her cooking. It's prepared with love, the way you cook for your family and here she gives that and spread that around to all of the people that she serves. My son just loves his "Aunt Vida's wings" gumbo, and anything else she serves up. I think I'd eat a paper bag if she cooked it. That girl can "burn"......

Delicious food and such a wonderful, hospitable Chef! Vida provides top notch food and service!

Jacqueline Vega

All the food prepared for my daughter’s baby shower by Jewell’s “Ms Vida” was delicious. From the seafood gumbo, the jambalaya and all the other dishes were tasty. Will definitely be a repeat customer !

Jewell’s Gumbo is a gift from Heaven! If you have or haven’t tried it you are missing out on some food for the soul!! I have known Vida for years and her Gumbo is the best!!! Don’t forget to get your order in so you too can share a little piece of heaven!!

Visa's southern hospitality is awesome! Her food is very flavorful and filling. The presentation is always amazing and I would definitely recommend her.Varshonda


Vida has the best Gumbo I have ever eaten in my entire life. She also cooks so many other good dishes. I am not saying this because she is my wife, I really mean it. I always wanted a "Southern Girl"and I got one that can cook!

What an amazing evening! You can never go wrong with cold weather, belly-warming Gumbo, live music and an Awesome DJ! Ms. Vida's cooking was on point and the Sweet Potato Pie and Bread Pudding didn't dissappoint! I am highly recommending her service for all you party/catering needs! Hope to see you down the road soon, Ms. Vida!
