Taco Caterer Near Torrance

Anyone suggest a good, cheap taco caterer who has done parties at a Torrance City park? I ask because the city requires that the caterer have a business license to do work in the city of Torrance. Thanks.

  1. Two of the most auténtico taco places in the area are Los Paisas and El Taco Loco. Both are located on the outskirts of Torrance (Harbor Gateway area), but their addresses indicate that they are Torrance businesses.

    Whether or not they cater, that's for you to determine ;-)

    Los Paisas
    21168 S Western Ave, Torrance, CA 90501

    El Taco Loco 7
    22502 S Western Ave, Torrance, CA 90501

    1. El Burrito Junior (multiple locations, many along PCH). Cheap is all relative. I think they charge $85 for 60 tacos (beef or chicken) or $50 for 30. I enjoy their shredded beef. I haven't had the chicken tacos.

      They have 2 Torrance Locations:
      3830 Pacific Coast Hwy, Torrance - (310) 373-5405.
      21141 Hawthorne Blvd, Torrance - (310) 944-9200

      I think you'd have to pick up the tacos and bring them yourself. They have very good salsa, which I'm sure they'll give you... and some nontraditional chips (they basically give you fried, crunchy whole corn tortilla rounds that you break up yourself).

      I enjoy this very small, local chain and it's a go-to place for quick tacos and burritos when I don't want to do sit down, tableside service (although they offer it at most of their locations... at least they offer tables to sit on).
