TRAIL BREAK taps + tacos is a restaurant and wedding catering business based in White River Junction, Vermont. Their 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 locals! The TRAIL BREAK taps + tacos team catered 11 rehearsal dinners and weddings during the 2019 wedding season and is looking forward to being a key, reliable component to even more great events in 2020 and beyond. TRAIL BREAK offers everything from menu planning and guidance to full service catering and bar service and looks forward to providing additional information based on the specific needs and expectations of each couple!
TRAIL BREAK offers unique, fresh and fun food to cater to a myriad of dietary restrictions and tastes. Their menus are fully customizeable and, with all food made on site to order, their 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, 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 chose the kegs for) are available on the trailer and fun, big-batch cocktails like guava margaritas, the 'beach bum' rum punch or Silo Maple mole old fashions are popular choices for couples seeking bar services alongside their catered meal.
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 jalapeno-cheddar cornbread!
TRAIL BREAK's menu and service will provide a fresh, easy-going alternative to traditional catering at a lower price point than what couples have been previously exposed to. They are excited to seeing where the upcoming season takes their 'mobile taco ops' and look forward to hearing from excited couples as they embark on the important party planning process!

Absolutely Recommend Trail Break!
We decided to go with Trail Break for our sort of "rehearsal dinner" food, and had never tried it before, but we were extremely pleased with our choice! All of our guests (and ourselves) loved Trail Break! The spicy margaritas were amazing - everyone was a fan, without a doubt - and the food we got from there was great. The shishitos, the cornbread, the corn - everything was delicious, and so were the tacos (all of them were a hit). The staff was awesome as well, and prior to the day of, Topher was responsive and super helpful! We highly recommend Trail Break!Sent on 09/28/2020
TRAIL BREAK taps + tacos's reply:THANK YOU for this positive and thorough review of our services Polina! I had a great time working with you throughout the planning stages and I know the crew had fun serving everyone the day of the event. SO glad to hear you were pleased with the variety of apps, tacos and beverages you and I put together for the event...especially since we weren't able to get a tasting in prior to the big weekend! This review will definitely encourage others to get in touch with us, whether they've been to our restaurant or not, and that is incredibly helpful for us. Thank you for taking the time to write this review (along with the handwritten postcard)! CONGRATS to you and Josh!

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 !Sent on 09/12/2020
TRAIL BREAK taps + tacos's reply:WHOA Olivia! THANK YOU for the enthusiastic and positive review AND for encouraging potential brides & grooms to reach out to us. These reviews go a LONG way in convincing prospective event planners to send us an inquiry and this will surely push some to do so. We had a great time working WITH and catering FOR you and your guests. The forecast made for an interesting day but we are glad you appreciated the effort put in by the crew and we appreciated your positive attitude throughout the ever-changing weather. Thank you and CONGRATS!

The trail break team was nothing short of amazing. Food was fantastic (even our picky eaters and vegans were happy), drinks were flowing and amazing (Rum punch is to die for) and the staff was so friendly and helpful. They packed the leftover food away for us. So sweet!Sent on 06/21/2020
