ISO Taco Truck/Catering for Hire

Hi-
Here are my findings on good taco trucks that cater:
1. La Taquizza/Ron Gonzalez/ Aracely
(323) 584-9137
(323) 864-4818 (cell)
3 kinds of meet, 2 salsa, cilantro, grilled onion, lemons and corn tortilla,
rice and beans. They grill the meat on premises.

2. Juans Tacos
(562) 714-8205

Sometimes it takes them a little while to call back, but they always come through.Yes! They catered a baby shower a bunch of us threw last year and they were SOOO good. They pull up in their own truck and set up a whole grill thing.Our party was pretty casual so depending on what you're looking for, I'm sure they do a few different menus
3. Fernando
cell (626) 278-6327,
they provide salsa, onion, cilantro, limes, radish, corn tortailla, 3-4 meats, napkins and plates, 4 hours. He cooks medium done at restaurant, he brings a grill and cooks well done. Very nice!
The best is a little market in Pasadena. He told me that he recently did a party in which he took 6 meats and charged $450 for 400 tacos. Call He and his wife Isaura are both wonderful, hardworking people. I love their Al Pastor. Another poster says their carnitas is the best. Fernando and Isaura have a taqueria in the back of a small neighborhood market in Pasadena. They have a cart that they take with them. Their Al Pastor is phenomenal and others have posted that their carne asada and carnitas are the best. I was talking with Fernando a few months ago and he said that he had just done a party where he made 400 tacos (they bring everything with them) and charged somewhere around $450 (or was it the other way around?). Additional items: chicken (he says he uses the thigh meat since it is more moist - my friend loves it), tripas, birria(?), cabeza and probably some others. Such sweet people with great food to boot. Every single person I have taken here loves the food and goes back. It is a gem. The market is located on the northwest corner of Summit and Hammond (1 block east of Raymond, 1 block north of Mountain). Open til 8pm M-Sat; til 2 on Sunday. Cell phone is (626) 278-6327.

4. Lety's Catering
323-353-8303 or 323-569-0558 Liz
3 of meat, 2 salsa, corn tortillas, limes, cilantro, onions, no guccamole. 4-5 tacos per person. They bring a grill, we provide plates. They come for 3 hours. They come 1 hour before.
What happens is they send a taco lady/guy to your house, with one of those portable cooktops. S/he provides red and green salsa, tortillas, onions, radishes and your choice of meat. They will also serve your guests. It is about $5-$6 per person

Mexican Caterer for Wedding- Tortilla Lady

Hi all-
I'm getting married on Cinquo de Mayo 2007 and I'd love to have good, fresh, down to earth, delicious Mexican food at my wedding. I'd love to have a Tortilla Lady or Gentleman prepare fresh tortillas at the wedding. Does anybody have any good recommendations on restaurants or caterers that might do this? We'll be having the wedding in Mt. Washington/ east side of LA.
Thanks for your help in advance-
