      Lety's is doing a party for us in a couple of weeks. We used them a year ago and were pleased. We looked into another one (recommended here); I think called Exquisito Tacos, or something like that, but their minimum # was more than we expect for our party.

          I had La Isla Bonita (the truck usually on Rose ave at 4th St in Venice) cater my wedding. Don't laugh, it was awesome! They specialize in seafood, so shrimp tacos and ceviche tostadas were the hits, but they also have excellent Al Pastor. They do cater- not sure of the price. Was +/- $700 for 80+ people and the food is incredible... you have to go talk to them to book, though.

            I attended a wedidng a few months ago at a mansion in Malibu that had a huge bbq rig, but was supplemented by the Border Grill truck. Good stuff. Not sure if a truck is what you're looking for, but might fit the bill.
