I've been getting a bunch of requests for taco caterers from an old post. I have not used any of these people but they've come highly recommended to me.
Fernando will be catering a big party for us soon. Best of luck.

1. La Taquizza/Ron Gonzalez/ Aracely
(323) 584-9137
(323) 864-4818 (cell)
3 kinds of meet, 2 salsa, cilantro, grilled onion, lemons and corn tortilla,
rice and beans. They grill the meat there.

2. Juans Tacos
(562) 714-8205
Sometimes it takes them a little while to call back, but they always come through.

3. Fernando
cell (626) 278-6327, He cooks medium done at restaurant, he brings a grill and cooks well done. Very nice!
The market is located on the northwest corner of Summit and Hammond (1 block east of Raymond, 1 block north of Mountain). Open til 8pm M-Sat; til 2 on Sunday.

4. Lety's Catering
323-353-8303 or 323-569-0558 Liz
3 of meat, 2 salsa, corn tortillas, limes, cilantro, onions, no guccamole. 4-5 tacos per person. They bring a grill, we provide plates. They come for 3 hours. They come 1 hour before.
What happens is they send a taco lady/guy to your house, with one of those portable cooktops. S/he provides red and green salsa, tortillas, onions, radishes and your choice of meat. They will also serve your guests. It is about $5-$6 per person

  1. Yay! I am SO glad you are using Fernando. He and his wife, Isaura are two of the nicest, hardest working people you will ever meet! Their food is delicious (especially the Al Pastor - to me, but he says he sells more of the carnitas and carne asada). They have now named their business - Exquicitos Tacos. (909) 873-0703 or cell (626) 278-6327.

    1. I've been trying to find a taco truck to do a party. I would like to have more than 2 or 3 meats available: i.e., cabeza, lengua, in addition to more traditional choices. Anyone have any suggestions?

        Fernando does 6 meats: Asada, Al Pastor, Tripe, Carnitas, Chicken and Buche. When I spoke with him I think he did 400 tacos for a party and charged $450 (or something like that). I would give him a call and ask him. You can ask if he can get those other items you are looking for.

          Hi Mark, just wanted to follow-up. I spoke with Fernando today and he said that he does offer lengua and cabeza, he just did not put them on his card. He said that he would be happy to make whatever you want.

            Suddenly, visions of scallop tacos are dancing in my head.

          2. re: WildSwede

            Does Fernando use a truck or do it from a cart? Thanks!

        2. Thanks for this list!

          Re: Fernando, can anyone provide a ballpark for his prices?

          1. This is great. We are going to have a pool party in May and this would be perfect. Do you know if these places have a minimum?

              Not sure - I would give Fernando a call. I am sure that he would be happy to answer any questions you may have!!
