Need suggestions for caterer

Hi! Any suggestions for a caterer for a wedding. We are looking for Mexican food for about 150 people. The reception will be at LA River Center & Gardens.

  1. How about a Taco Truck, complete with all the fixins and homemade Horchata & Jamaica. Give them a call and see what they can do. Great people, family owned and operated, just used them for my 30 year high school reunion picnic.

    1. i would just ask the staff/owner of your favorite mexican food place(s). many cater but do not advertise it. while i am not that fond of the restaurant - i've had quite good experiences with the barragan's catering (which people like for work events and I don't have a choice). they are located downtown la but provide catering city-wide. i know don antonio's on the westside does not cater.

        I just had catered mexican last night at a graduation party, one word, BORING! I think a Taco truck or a Taquerio would be awesome, it is good and fresh. The only thing that sort of holds up is enchiladas, rice and beans, with a taquerio or truck you get FRESH! IMHO

          Since it is a wedding, I don't think a taco truck is what I would want. I would like something more presentable, sinice my family would disapprove and not eat.

            It would sure be better that mexican food from a chaffing dish, much more interesting and fun, but i sort of understand. Maybe try Guelagetza, a more interesting choice than regular mexican.

              Are they on Sepulveda? I have had them before, but it is Oaxacan food only.

                I think they are on Sepulveda near Palms. I go to the one by me in Korea Town. Yes it is Oaxacan, but great chicken in Mole and they make a version of enchiladas, it is all very good.
