7 Tips To Choosing The Best Taco Caterer

Hiring a San Fernando Valley, CA taco catering company for a big event like a wedding, baby shower, or birthday party is a very big deal. You need everything to go perfectly right! This means going with the right company. How can you know for sure you’re bringing in the right caterer so there will be no question as to how yummy the tacos will be and how smooth the event will go? It’s time to do your research and ask some questions!

Go with a caterer who’s menu items are homemade

Of course, you want homemade, authentic Mexican tacos! When you go with a taco catering company that is truly the best of the best, everything from the guacamole salsa to the carne asada to the tortilla chips are all homemade.

Ask about your specific type of event

Not all caterers handle all types of events. A company well known for weddings may not necessarily want to or be able to handle a quinceanera. Others specialize in serving large corporate clients and not family events. You want everything to go right, and then means a company who knows precisely how to do that.

Make sure all of your guests will get enough tacos

Tacos are amazing and your guests will want to fill their bellies! A limit of four to five tacos maximum per guest should be good enough. Of course, since The Taco Guy is the best taco catering in San Fernando Valley, CA, we offer an unlimited option for those who really love tacos and want to make sure no one leaves hungry or disappointed!

Inquire about your leftovers

Good news! When you go with The Taco Guy, any and all of the leftovers are left at your location for you to keep. They are left in convenient plastic containers so you can send them home with special guests or transport them back to your home easily.

Find out what is included beyond the tacos

Plates, napkins, and forks should be included. The Taco Guy will provide the utensils needed for you to enjoy your delicious meal. All you need to worry about is showing up and eating some delicious food!

Ask how many hours of service is provided

The answer to this can depend on a number of factors, mostly how many people are being served. Usually, there are three hours of service, one hour is for preparation and a two-hour window of serving 30 to 35 persons. For events with less than 30 people, there is less preparation and serving time and for more people, there is more time involved.

Ask for references you can talk to

This party is too important to risk on an unknown. It is a good idea to check up on the caterers you are considering. A good place to start is online with sites like Yelp, Google My Business, and Angie’s List for their reviews and ratings. Don’t stop there! See if you can track down some past clients of the caterers you are considering and reach out to them. Don’t just rely on what the caterer tells you, do the extra legwork to ensure you are getting the best catering company possible.
