Seamless, perfection!! Wonderful food and people :)

My wedding was outside and in the summer. I really wanted upscale Mexican since that’s my husband’s favorite. Chef Jose, Marilyn and staff were so precessional and easy to work with pre planning and day-of wedding. The taste, quality and portions were perfectly on point!! The food was so fresh, dips and salad were kept cool even outside in 80 plus degree weather. I don’t know how they managed that part but they did! My guests were so complimentary about the food, Chef and staff. We will forever be grateful for all the care, consideration and attention they put into making my wedding day extra special and memorable for all :).

13th Taco is the best!

We used 13th Taco for our wedding in October. We unfortunately had to postpone our wedding from 2020 due to covid and 13th Taco was so helpful through that whole process! Working with 13th Taco was just a delight. Their food is beyond delicious and they were so accommodating to food allergies and our 2 vegan guests. We highly recommend them!

Wedding review for 13th Taco and Taps

The 13th Taco and Taps catered our wedding and did an absolutely amazing job. They helped me design a menu that fit my wedding style and budget. Marilyn and Chef even helped me design a signature cocktail for my guests. They and their entire team were the embodiment of professionalism and one of the easiest vendors to work with. This was incredibly important to us as our wedding occurred in the Fall of 2020 during the height of the pandemic. The food was wonderful and fresh and many guests complimented the menu. Sincere thanks and appreciation to Marilyn and Chef for making our wedding day special and filled with love, health, and delicious food. In closing, I give 13th Taco and Taps my highest recommendation for any catered event, particularly weddings.
