We hired 13th Taco for our 70 person wedding, and it worked out wonderfully! We absolutely recommend them!Sent on 12/15/2017
When communicating with them prior to the wedding they responded to all of our questions quickly and professionally, and they made sure that everything in our contract was clear and exactly what we had agreed upon. They even emailed us a week prior to verify everything once again, and to make sure there wouldn’t be any ambiguity or questions on our big day.
We were slightly worried about how fast they would be able to get food out, but it wasn’t an issue at all! We did tell our guests to try not to all line up at the same time, which worked really well, and in the 2 hours the truck was serving all of our guests were quickly fed, and many even went back for seconds.
So how about the food? It was INCREDIBLE. The ingredients were fresh, the food was flavorful and delicious, and their presentation is gorgeous. We’ve had so many of our guests tell us after the wedding how much they enjoyed the food from 13th Taco. In particular, our vegetarian guests really enjoyed the Chorizo Tofu option.
They were able to offer gluten free options, and vegan options as well, so we didn’t have to make any special considerations for our guests with dietary restrictions, which was awesome.
Overall, we were extremely pleased with 13th Taco. The communication was great, the food was delicious, and the options appealed to all of our guests. In our - completely unbiased ;) – opinion, this was the best wedding food we’ve ever had. In fact, we tracked them down the week after the wedding just to eat their food again!

The 13th Taco was perfect for my daughter and son-in-law’s wedding. We had SO many comments from the guests about the quality and deliciousness of the food. Because her reception was outdoors on one of the hottest days to date this year, the chef cooked on site instead of taking the chance that the food would spoil. Couldn’t have asked for a better vendor. Thanks, 13th Taco!
