Wedding? ... Rehearsal Dinner? ... Welcome Party? ... we've got you covered!

TRAIL BREAK taps + tacos is a restaurant and wedding catering business based in White River Junction, Vermont. Our fun, unique and vibrant restaurant expanded in the spring of 2018 to feature a plaid-wrapped taco trailer complete with four draft beer lines and the ability to venture all over the state to cater in some truly epic locales! We now have a total of THREE taco trailers/trucks and have TRIPLED our booking capacity! If you see our availability blocked off on the calendar, it means that all three slots for that date are already booked, otherwise we still have at least one booking spot open for your big celebration!

In 2023, our 5th - and busiest - season, we were fortunate enough to cater over 90 events! Our crew is well versed in off-site food and beverage service and we look forward to providing guidance based on the specific needs and expectations of each couple with the goal of ensuring that every guest continues to rave about the food (and service) for weeks after the celebration!

TRAIL BREAK offers unique, fresh and fun food to cater to a myriad of dietary restrictions and tastes. Menus are fully customizeable and, with all food made on site to order, our ability to handle modifications to fit every guests' needs creates a stress-free menu planning experience for couples excited to try something out of the ordinary.

Charred shishito peppers, house made serrano guac, crispy fried maple-sambal duck wings and spiced grilled watermelon are all great ways to set the tone during cocktail hour.

Speaking of cocktail hour, TRAIL BREAK is fully licensed in the state of Vermont to serve beer, wine and cocktails at any venue you are hosting your epic party at! Four draft lines (which you choose the kegs for) are available and fun, big-batch cocktails like our guava margarita, the 'beach bum' rum punch or peach sangria are popular choices for couples seeking bar services. Our consumption-based pricing model creates an affordable way for party planners to offer a fun (and EFFICIENT) bar without feeling they are paying an unnecessary amount for drinks that their guests won't consume.

When it comes time for the main course, tacos are front and center! Grilled fish, carne asada, slow roasted carnitas and black bean tacos are among the favorites that are made to order while each guest helps themselves to exciting sides like grilled street corn, sweet potato hash and avocado-ranch summer salad!

TRAIL BREAK's menu and service will provide a casual, yet efficiently executed, alternative to traditional catering at a lower price point than what couples might expect. We are STOKED to seeing where the upcoming season takes our 'mobile taco ops' throughout VERMONT and NEW HAMPSHIRE and Belle and Sabrina (your local 'taco travel agents') look forward to hearing from excited couples as they embark on their party planning process!

HEROS of the wedding

I write this review as a long time professional in the event and restaurant industry. This business is professional, down to earth & exceeds beyond the quality of your investment.

Not only was the quality of the food outstanding, everyone was pleased even those with dietary restrictions and picky eaters. Highly recommend the carnitas - everyone is still talking about 2 weeks later (street corn too & spicy watermelon margarita)

I also cannot rave enough about the staff and planning process. Current times make planning your big day a nightmare but Topher was kind, responsive, understanding and genuine. Same with the rest of his staff and event lead on the day of our wedding.

Inclement weather predicted on my wedding day and Topher never once made me feel panicked—-waited until the very last second to make a close call on execution. Dinner and drink service remained throughout passing showers. I’m sure it wasn’t easy to remain positive but the staff did not fluster! I cannot say thank you enough!!! Do not hesitate to hire them if you are on the fence! Our wedding was very traditional and the truck fit right into the vibe. They will be the heros of your wedding like they were for mine !

A+ all the way!

There aren’t enough words to describe how incredible an experience we shared with Trail Break. Topher and his team were by far on top of their game from the first day I contacted them. Super responsive, and very accommodative as well. Topher helped us plan the food and beverage menu and work thru details and changes, as they presented themselves.
During the wedding we had a pretty steady unrelenting rain. And the crew went above and beyond to make sure our guests had the protection they needed. And everyone maintained a positive attitude the entire time.
The food was SO good. Ahead of the wedding, we had driven to Trail Breaks’ restaurant in White River Junction. Having only found them online, we decided to make the 3h trip to try the offerings. Options were many and it was hard to decide what to try. But Topher was on site that day, and made recommendations and presented a wonderful spread. The feedback we received from guests was super positive all the way around. *Muah! Chefs kiss, seriously. We were impressed and enjoyed leftovers for many days because hey, there’s no such thing as too much Mexican, there just isn’t.
Very excited to visit Trail Break at their new location in the spring/summer of 2024!

10/10 Must Have Food Truck!

Trail Break is the must have food truck at your wedding! Topher and the Trail Crew are AMAZING! We had a backyard wedding with ~100 guests and everyone could not stop talking about the food. We are 2 days post wedding and are still getting messages from family and friends raving.

Everything from the cocktail hour to the dinner service was phenomenal. Topher's communication throughout the entire planning process was great and he went above and beyond accommodating our needs.

10/10, could not recommend more!!

I started TRAIL BREAK as an idea to bring something that was lacking around the Upper Valley: a fun, vibrant hangout spot that happens to serve some of the best scratch made food around. My focus has always been on the overall experience of dining at a restaurant - not just what's on the plate - and this has naturally extended into our taco trailer business. We are a crew that clearly has fun at events (we'd have to given that we roll up with a giant, bright, plaid wrapped trailer) and focuses on quality. We have been ALL over VT and beyond during our 375+ events and look forward to the next one
