    To say working with My Taco Man was a pleasure is an understatement. The food was amazing, the service was extremely professional and the price was right. We got more than we bargained for. I highly recommend working with Robert if you want your event to be perfect.

    I just enjoyed tacos at my sister's house for a family party, and they were GREAT! Chicken was my favorite, and others loves the chorizo. Came with rice, beans, and every condiment possible! The man who cooked and served the tacos was super friendly and chatted with everyone in line, and he was even willing to make custom dishes - jalapeños and shredded cheese on hand? Made us jalapeño poppers!

    I'd recommend this company to anyone in the area!

    The tacos are outstanding. You see the tortillas being warned, the meats being cooked all in front of you !, talk about fresh. Get the tacos with everything; which includes, chopped onions, cilantro and a green sauceor red. You also have a choice of either corn or flour tortillas. The corn tortillas are a work of art. They are chewy and delicate, but at the same time hold everything together. Both the carne asada and hawiian pork tacos will melt in your mouth, good and bursting with flavor. The pollo quesadilla was the same size as the taco, but with melted cheese, it was heavenly.

    These really are the absolute top of my 'best of taco' list and I'll bet they'll be yours too.

    just wish they had a location, GET ON IT MY TACO MAN!.

    The problem: I had a lunch time event at work that I had hired a different taco vendor for only to discover that 4 days prior to the event, my vendor had no insurance. Guess what? Most conscientious corporations need their vendors to have insurance. You know, in case the grill blows up, the cook burns off his eyebrows or someone does a face plant into the propane tank. In comes My Taco Man to the rescue. Not only can I get an instant quote from their website, it states right smack dab in their FAQs that they have insurance. I got my quote and instant chatted with one of their coordinators. They got me a copy of their insurance modified with my company's name on it the same day I booked . Hector called me the next day to confirm I had everything I needed. Can't knock that kind of service.

    Day of the event: The two men who cooked/served the food arrived early and you could tell that they had been trained extensively on how to be professional. Considering it was almost 100 degrees outside (I broke out in a sweat just looking at their uniforms), it was even more impressive that they were so nice and polite.

    We had a contract with My Taco Man for a catered dinner for 75 people this past weekend...and well, we've still never met My Taco Man.

    My Taco Man did not show up to feed the 75 guests we had at our rehearsal dinner. What was supposed to be a fun & relaxing evening with our out of town guests turned into a mad dash to the local grocery store to get food items to make dinner. I called them a total of 10 times within 52 minutes to figure out wherre they were (everything was confirmed on Tuesday, July 23rd for a July 26th dinner). No calls back until Saturday morning (the morning of our wedding) demanding payment. At that time they called my phone, my husband's phone, and our friend's phone (I used it once to call them the night before) telling us that their driver was there and we had to pay them. Do not use this company. Anyone that has been burned, please consider filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. If you have any questions at all feel free to message me directly. I'd be more than happy to share our awful experience

    I hired Miami Grill Catering at my Disco Wedding party last November, and boy was I impressed. Although I barely ate that night do to all the excitement my guests are still talking about the quality of the meats.Even though the meal was as carnivore as it gets, Sal and his crew offered delicious grilled vegetables, soy tacos to cater to the few vegetarians in the group. It is important to note that this meal also fed many gluten intolerant s. In addition the service was exceptional and like mentioned in other reviews Sal (the owner) was hands on every step of the way. Thank you My Taco Man Catering for making my wedding a memorable celebration.

    Just wanted to drop you a note of thanks. You should be very proud of your catering company…it’s so professional and you made things so easy… The food was absolute wonderful and each and every person at the party commented on how much they enjoyed it.

    Thanks again and I look forward to another event in the future.
    Best Regards, Diane
