Taco catering

Can anyone recommend a good (and not too expensive) caterer who does soft tacos, cooked on site, for a party of 75 guests?

  1. This thread is from 2007 but one of the places mentioned, (Lety's) has gotten high marks on the LA board from other posters as well.

      Thanks for your reply. I will try them, if they are still in business!!

        Fernando, first one mentioned on the link that Sevorg provided does fantastic work. Everyone who has used them from this board has always been really happy with them. Whenever I take a friend, they tell me they cannot wait to go back. Their Al Pastor is my definite favorite. When I last saw him a couple of weeks ago he told me that the catering business is good. I told him that is because his food is great and he is so hard working and wonderful!!

      2. Easy: Tu Tacos.

          Thanks for the recommendations!

        2. Check ourt Casablanca in Venice. As caterers they are very good and very reasonable. I've been to a party catered by these folks and it was just great. They send a woman who makes the tortillas on the spot. check out their website for the menus. I dont think they can be beat for quality/price.

          1. Looking to do the same (and have searched all the old threads, which are getting a little stale).
            Has anyone tried WanTacos
            www.wantacos.com/
            or RastaTacos
            www.rastataco.com/catering_menu.html
            Any input would be appreciated.

                  points well taken. we used Lety's last year and they were great.
                  I guess this is such a common request that I was hoping for some different or more extensive offerings.
                  A friend suggests Tacos el Toro at the carwash on Laurel and Oxnard but not sure if they cater.

            2. El Tapatio in the minimall at Victory and Fallbrook in Woodland Hills has great soft tacos with a variety of meats (I prefer their Pastor). They advertise a fairly large catering operation, cooking on-site.

              1. I have used Juan's Tacos in the past and they are phenomenal!

                Ask for Juan, 562-927-7128. They are super nice and super reasonable.
