Whether you’re hosting a birthday party, family gathering, office lunch, or even a wedding, the food that you and your guests are served is very important! Luckily, if you’re already on our site, you’ve already made the right choice – tacos! We think that tacos are always the best choice for every event, though we may be a little biased. No matter what kind of food you plan to serve, there are several questions that you should ask your caterer to make sure all your needs are met and you know what to expect. Here are some of the most important questions to help get your event planning started!
Do you deliver in my area?
This question may seem obvious, but it is an important place to start. On the day of your event you will probably be busy coordinating set up, greeting guests, or even enjoying yourself! You won’t be looking for another errand to run, so you’ll want to make sure that your caterer is able to come directly to your event space. From our own restaurant in San Juan Capistrano and catering headquarters in Tustin, we are able to deliver to all of Orange County for your convenience!
What is the best package for my event?
We want to make sure you get the most for your money! Ask your caterer about the different options they offer. Are they calculating your costs per person or per item? What serving utensils and other necessary accessories are included with each package? Be sure to tell your caterer the details about your event that will help them best customize their services to your needs, such as your guest count, number of children and adults to be served, themes to be incorporated, and anything else that may be relevant to your catering experience.
Can you accommodate any dietary restrictions?
If you know that any of your guests have dietary restrictions that you would like to accommodate, such as allergies, lactose intolerance, kosher diet, vegetarianism, veganism, or gluten intolerance, ask your caterer if they offer any options that fit within these restrictions. For example, we offer corn tortillas (gluten free!) and a delicious veggie taco filling option.
How should I prepare my event space before the food arrives?
As you plan the rest of your event, you’ll want to ask your caterer how much space you should reserve for the food. This will vary depending on the type of food you order and the magnitude of your event. For example, if you order our deluxe taco package, we have a video showing you approximately how much table space your food will require. In some cases you may need to have space in a refrigerator or freezer to keep food cool until it is time to serve.
We hope these questions will help you get the best possible catering experience. If you have any questions or are ready to place your taco catering order, contact us today!
