”I am so happy that I selected the San Diego Taco Company to provide the catering for my daughter's birthday and graduation party at our home. The entire experience was a positive one for me from working with their catering department, and then from the day of the event with the on-site team.
I was impressed; they were professional, on-time, friendly, and the best part is that their food was a hit! All of my guests raved about how good the food was, and they kept going back for more!
Frankie and Alejandro were super nice. They made our experience smooth and easy. I give the San Diego Taco Company two thumbs way up! I recommend them and will probably use them again in the future!Kathy D.
