How does your service stand out?

We love what We do, home made style is the difference between us and South Mexico, flavor and smoothness between a tortilla that you buy and reheated and an artesanal tortilla is huge, thats why people love our food, everything you taste individually taste flavorfull, guacamole, rice, salsas you name it, everything we do is with love and people notice the difference.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

When we are cooking for people is like to cook for our own family, and people make us feel part of their parties and we really enjoy that. also give me the opprtunity to meet wonderful people.

    The two ladies arrived on time, They were very professional, very pleasant and the food was very tasty! Some of my friends who attended the party got their number because they plan to use them in the future :-)

    I was very disappointed with what happened on April 5th. They were supposed to cater my wedding for 80 people. They were supposed to be there at 11:45am to be ready to serve my guests at 2pm. At 12(right as the bride was walking down the aisle) a young girl showed up (the caters daugter) and said her parents got into a car accident (no one was hurt) and they would be there in 20 minutes. Fine. We checked in with her every 20 minutes and she kept saying they would be there in another 20 minutes. Finally, at 4pm (and half my guests left since they had work the next day and drove hours to be there) we couldn't wait any longer. We found out she had the meat with her and only needed a lighter!! So we ended up buying the meat she had on her and told them we didn't need them to come(the park closes at 630 and we had to start to break up every by 6). What upset us the most was there was never a call to let us know what was going on. We called them and left them messages starting at 12, when they were 15 minutes late and we hadn't heard from them. The bride and groom were both stressed out on their very special day when they shouldn't have been. The daughter who was there, got real lipy with everyone who was trying to help or figure out what was going on. We would have understood better if they were diligent and honest from the beginning. I don't recommend them to anyone!

    We really have to apologize for this misunderstanding, we went to the event in 2 cars, 1 earlier to start grilling meat and tortillas with 2 people and the other with the rest of stuff, second one was involved in an accident and 1 people from the first car have to return to help the secon car lady, for me our security and personall wellsnes of my employees are first, we fail to this customer due to an accident employee was involved, we retut him the deposit, i know was so stressfull for them but hope understand that if some one have a car accident then we have to prioritize , so sorry and you did a review about your feelings that i respect. best wishes

    Hosted a catered event for 70 people and Baja's truly delivered on all aspects! They called to confirm the time and location the day before which truly put me at ease! They arrived and immediately set up and began preparing. The food was magnificent, but the owner called me on my cell to ensure that I was satisfied. Very small detail that will certainly lead me to using them again in the future! The staff was polite and very accommodating to a few special requests. A GREAT experience!

    I contacted Baja's Tacos & Catering last minute, just two days before a family event at my house. Jesus was very helpful and offered a couple options to accommodate our needs. We went with the option that he recommended, and it was BEYOND outstanding. Plenty of food for a very reasonable price. Delivered to our doorstep and set up. They provided EVERYTHING! Everyone loved the food and there was plenty for seconds and leftovers! Thank you, Baja's Tacos & Catering, we will definitely be using you guys again!! Highly recommended!!

    We recently got married, and we hired Bajas Tacos to cater our reception. They invited us over for a sampling that was absolutely delicious. We were sold. They arrived promptly, set everything up and had everyone asking for more.
    I continue to have my guests asking me about where did we get the food, and I am referring them to Bajas Tacos.
    Delicious homemade food and salsas. To top it off they made fresh tortillas that absolutely set it off.

    Bajas Tacos we THANK YOU for the great food and service. We will definitely be using Bajas Tacos again!

    Jesus did an incredible job. We hired him to serve our guests at a Halloween party, and we practically everyone went back for seconds and even thirds. His tacos were delicious! We would absolutely hire him again for a future event. After pricing out several taco catering companies, Jesus was by far the most reasonably priced and his service was excellent! Thank you again for an amazing job Jesus!! :)

    Wow, wow, wow is all I can say! I have been at many parties where they have served Mexican food but absolutely nothing compares to this. The service was impeccable and the food, well the food was so authentic, my guests were raving about it. They went for seconds and thirds! I had so much leftover even though the exact number of people showed up. many of my quests asked for Jesus's contact information. Would I use them again? You bet, over and over There are no words to express how pleased I was with the entire event thanks to the wonderful food and service. Oh and they cleaned up as though no one was ever there! beautiful I highly recommend!

    Jesus just catered for our wedding of 250 people. He showed up a little later than expected but food was freshly prepared and served on time. Communication at times was difficult, but Jesus pulled everything off wonderfully. I had at least 15 guests tell me these were the best tacos they had ever had. Thank you Jesus for doing an outstanding job catering and making our wedding a night to remember. I would highly suggest using him for your next event.

    Jesus catered Courtney & Spencer's wedding for 140 people and the food and service was amazing!! The only thing I was concerned about was being late as I read 1 or 2 out of 100+ reviews about being a little late (things happen!) and they were actually 45 minutes early!! As mentioned in prior reviews, the food was excellent and there was a TON of it left over. I knew there would be but we weren't prepared for how much was left, we could have fed another 25+people! The only other semi-negative review I read was that if you're a control freak, you will have to deal with communicating by e-mail...I'm a total control freak & Jesus always answered any questions I had within a very timely manner. They have you come to their home on a Friday evening where they always have tastings so you get to go over what dishes you would like & talk at length w/Jesus and that is how we chose them, between the 99% 5* reviews and then tasting the food...DECISION MADE!! A decision we don't regret one bit and you cannot beat the price! Also, we had several vegetarians attending so we asked for fish to be available for fish tacos (grilled red sea bass) & a vegan dish...again, they accommodated us and we heard raving reviews. Give up the control & let Jesus and his crew do the rest, you will NOT be disappointed! Manuel, his son, was the one that arrived w/crew & he was so polite as was his crew. Awesome service & food!

    Jesus was great to deal with! He catered for a wedding we had at a marina in San Diego and everything was done via email as we live in Arizona. His response to our emails were almost instantaneous and he was very helpful. The food was excellent, I could not believe the number of comments we had during the event...not one single complaint from any of our guests. I highly recommend Baja Tacos

    Amazing food! Great for our party. Served about 50 people for a fortieth birthday party. Very good about communicating they had received payment and confirming for event. Two small details - they did not bring chips thinking quote did not include it, but just at my mention immediately went and bought chips before I had even shown them e-mail confirming with chips --- also arrived and set up extra early, but then left early (everyone had been served so it was fine, just not expected). I HIGHLY recommend them for any occasion and absolutely plan to have them cater future events. They also brought more than enough food and packed up the leftovers for some follow up meals.

    Second time we use Baja Taco. The communication lacks a bit. I was told to send directions and I did via thumbtack (exact directions) The day of the party I called to confirm the time since I didn't hear from Baja Taco the day before. The owner assured me everything was set to go and all he needed was my exact location when I got there to my site. I did phone and tell him my exact location but it seems he didn't understand.. The address and telling him which parking lot and by what landmark was good enough for everyone to find our party but Turns out it wasn't for the taco people.. They called saying they were lost.. Someone else ended up calling me an saying they needed directions. After all that I did end up getting a taco guy, a little later than specified, but that wasn't a big deal. Unfortunately they forget the ladle for the horchata and ice for the horchata.. The taco man and the lady making the tortillas were nice and effienct. They made everything fresh and quick. They even packed up all the leftovers for us which was nice. The food was good just like last time, the carne and pollo asada were tasty, the adobada was okay. The salsas were good, guacamole was yummy and tons of it. Rice and beans weren't bad, The beans were different.. Not pinto but they were okay. Overall the food was good the cook was good, but the communication wasn't great. And I am pretty positive the man who showed up gor us weren't the orignal people who contacted me earlier asking for directions again... They called from a different number... I wi use them again. Overall the do a good job and my guests enjoy the food. This time around we had plenty I leftovers, first time we had just enough, we ran out of meat the first time.

    Thanks for your comments about food quality and quantity, We call the customer 1 day before of event, when we close a deal and have all the info then we are ok, I asked for the exact place on party in mission bay park Vacation island, I know to get there, but once there there are a lot of families and parties then we asked to pinpoint the exact place on google maps, it is really easy, we never got it. then we had the usual problems in Mission bay events, I try to collect the most accurate info to provide the people that do the catering, when customer provide me the info we need it is really easy to find them. Horchata was a complimentary food and we do not provide ice, We use Mayocoba or Peruans beans, those are expensive and better than pinto beans, Customer received a phone call from my employee, because with the info that i provided he was unable to find the right spot, We do many parties in Mission Bay and when customer sent me a pinpoint map with exact location have been really easy to found them. Thanks for your feedback

    We had Baja Taco cater my daughters rehearsal dinner for 50 people and they were wonderful! The food was absolutely delicious and all the guests were very complimentary to them. There was enough food that most everyone had seconds and we still had food left over. I told them the time I wanted the first taco to be ready to serve and it was ready. They arrived at the exact time they said they would. They set up , even provided their own tables and cleaned everything prior to leaving ...even putting the leftovers in foil containers. They were very kind, courteous and helpful to the guests. Could not have asked for anything better. Will definitely use them in the future...!

    Had my daughter's 4th birthday at a park & utilized Jesus's catering services. Everyone raved about the food-it was delicious. The servers arrived punctually, served food to the guests on time, and were very courteous. Will definitely use them again!

    Jesus and his team were great. He called us on his way over to the event, arrived on time, they set up their own operation, and completely cleaned up before they left.

    All of the guests gave great reviews for the food. Meat was tender and delicious, as were the other items Jesus prepared for us. Tortillas were so fresh. Outstanding- best I have ever had by far.

    We were disappointed that the beans were not refired as quoted (they were whole pinto beans) and one of the three meats was not served (as quoted to us). Be prepared by having extra plates and napkins and allow for over an hour for set up and serve time if you have a party over 75 people. Also, no official contract will be issued to you.

    I did like that they came prepared to leave and did leave ALL left over food in aluminum trays for us to enjoy once they had cleaned up. Food was available for guests even after Jesus had left. Pricing was fair. We would recommend them and use them again. Thanks Jesus!

    Jesus and his wife are wonderful, not to mention the food. They gave the perfect service because they were available when I needed them and for service, but they weren't over assuming. They were kind and checked with me from the beginning on what I wanted and how I wanted things done. My guests all raved about the food. One friend said they were the best tortillas she'd ever had. I love fresh tortillas, myself. We had lots of leftovers, too. I will definitely use them again. Thank you, Jesus!

  • 4/5 stars Verified Review

    they showed up on time one hour before I asked food to start serving, but didnt start serving until 30 minutes after I asked, there was something wrong with their grill so they had to use ours, but what if we didnt have one for them to use, we would be in trouble with no food for guests.the food was good, guests loved the food. Only complaint I have is that my husband and i both agreed something should have been offered to be deducted from the price for having to use our grill or at least they could of served 30 min longer since I did explain i had guests in their way....overall, i would use them again because the food was good, and they did show up and were polite to everyone. They should say they can make quesadillas though because my guests had to ask for them for her daughter and was told in "20 " minutes she can get one. May be an extra person to help them would be good or even to make quesadillas ahead of time before starting to serve so that some kids can get them while going through the line with their parents. only bad thing was i was so busy with party, i couldn't enjoy food more.

    We had about 25 people for a bachelorette pre-party at an apartment complex clubhouse. Jesus and helpers (family) brought all the pre-determined and agreed upon foods in easy to present/serve containers. They were probably in and out in ten minutes. Everything from begining to end of working with Jesus was as planned. There was plenty of food and it was yummy - listen to any recommendations he may have! I'd definitely use Baja's Tacos again as it was really easy from beginning to end.

    My employer hired Baja's Tacos to cater a company event at Qualcomm Stadium on 12/27. We host an annual tailgate party for clients and industry partners, and have used other caterers in the past. I got quotes from 5 caterers, and ultimately went with Baja's because it was evident that they are very passionate about what they do, and really dedicated to quality and authenticity. (side note: although cost wasn't a factor in our decision, Baja's price was probably the lowest of all 5 companies) Jesus was always quick to respond and answer questions, and every interaction I had with him was pleasant. We were extremely happy with the service that Jesus and his team provided, and the food was amazing. We had three types of tacos (carne asada, pollo and adobada) with fresh corn and flour tortillas and extra chips and guacamole as an appetizer. I appreciated that they included all the toppings including various salsas, guacamole, etc. in the price, as well as rice and beans. It was also very important to us that the tortillas be made fresh onsite, and they did not disappoint! In fact, they made everything right there, including salsa, guacamole. The team arrived well in advance of the event start, and were completely set up and ready to go before any guests arrived. They also provided plenty of staff to serve and cook., so no one had to wait in line. Overall, we would highly recommend Baja's Tacos and look forward to using them again in the future.

    We had such a great experience with Baja's! I was planning a surprise birthday party for my 40+ year-old husband with about 65 guests, and everyone raved about the food! The meat was delicious as were the tortillas, rice, guacamole, and everything else. They threw in a complimentary vegetarian dish, which was delicious as well! The setup did take a little longer than expected, but everything turned out so wonderfully that it didn't matter. We ended up with a ton of leftover (which were left with us in large aluminum trays) even though everyone ate to their heart's content. The beans (they were whole and not refried) seemed to be the least favorite dish. The bar was efficiently set up, so the line went pretty quickly. We plan on using Baja's again for our company's Christmas party. Many thanks to Baja's for making our event delicious and memorable!

    These people DO NOT provide the service they promise. First they showed up over an hour late and served food an hour after I wanted, leaving my guests waiting. Next, they ran out of limes, DID NOT provide grilled peppers and onions or chips, and DID NOT tell my guests about the mulitas/quezadillas until my husband asked. The worst part was that they stopped cooking meat after only an hour leaving dry scraps in the dish. The guy said my guests ate a lot...excuse me? I still had guests arriving and they said it was time to go after less than 2 hours of service. I was very upset and disappointed. They SUCK!

    Could you please let me know when and where we cater for you, I just reviewed all our records and we have not cater for anybody named Carmen E., We guarantee plenty of food for all guests we have more than 100 comments of people just in Thumbtack and many of them mentioned that they had leftovers, also quesadillas are cooked when people requested, limes is not a big deal, people sometimes take many of them in order to not comeback to the table or many time people takes for use with beer, we do not going to tell your guest that is OK or not, we start cooking meat 1 hr before start serving and until we finish the meat, same thing with onions and peppers, the first guest on table use to take most of them in a single plate leaving the rest of guest without these delicious food, We have been in parties where people ate 8-12 tacos each and we still plenty of food, then the only way to be short in food is that people sometimes have more guest that the originally contracted, this is generally a few inconvenient we have had in the past in some event and commented as an information, if we really cater for you please let me know exactly when and where and the name of people that hired us , Because I can not find you under Carmen E.

    Wow! I am not easily impressed, but I was blown away by the quality, freshness, and entire set-up and presentation by your team. To see the meat grilled and chopped on one side, while fresh corn tortillas were being pressed out on the other, it just added to the atmosphere!

    Our family has used 5 different Taco Catering companies because we had never found one worth calling back. But thanks to you guys, we will look no further! We will call you every time!

    And although I am a bit of a control freak and was uneasy because you were so laid back before the event (all communication was through Thumbtack, which is new to me) in hind sight, I was worried for nothing. You were so laid back because you know what you are doing, and all of my guests were so pleased! I've had many requests for your number since the event and look forward to calling you again soon!

    WOW! I had a party for a 60th birthday. Baja's Tacos was supposed to show up at 3 pm and server from 4 to 6. They came really early and I was initially concerned that they didn't get the time right as they didn't speak English very well, but they stayed from noon to 6 pm and everything was made from scratch (guacamole, tortillas, beans, rice, meat, etc.). Plus, I got all the leftovers. I will be eating for a week! The food was awesome and all the guests raved about it. You will absolultely love these guys!

    We hired Baja's Tacos & Catering for my husband's birthday party and we were very impressed! They did a wonderful job providing a delicious dinner for the party of 35 folks at our home. The guests raved about the food - especially the homemade tortillas and the guacamole. The service they provided was efficient and friendly. I would highly recommend them for your next event!

    We hired Baja Tacos for our Daughter Graduation Party - the food was great and all my guest raved about the food...I gave them a 4 star only because they did not provide carnitas as I asked for, but they still provided the adobada tacos. I will definitely use them again in the future. Thank you Jesus

    I hired Baja's Tacos & Catering for the grand opening party of my business. The party was a huge success, due largely in part to the great food provided by Jesus and his team. I had over 100 people at my party and there was plenty of food - even tons of extras that my family is now enjoying! Baja's Tacos was on time, dependable and friendly. They came prepared with everything they needed - the only thing I had to provide was an outlet for them. Thanks again, Jesus, for being a wonderful addition to my event. I look forward to many great events together in the future!

    Carne Asada and Abodada tacos 5 stars
    Sides 4.5 stars
    Setup 5 stars
    Staff 5 stars

    Taco Bar was a big hit! Guests wanted to know how we found Baja! Many local south bay guests said better than El Gordos. Many said best Corn Tortillas around! Baja is fairly priced, excellent food and professional staff. Thanks Baja, I will definitely use you in the future and so will some of our guests

    Thanks Jesus for your patience with this Poway Gringo!!

    The food was awesome. We had the chicken, beef and fried shrimp. The workers were friendly but didn't seem completely prepared. I had asked for food to be served at 5 and that is what they agreed to, then a ciuple days before the event Jesus indicated that one of the workers had an issue and it would be more like 5:30. That was hard as it was a beach party where the people had been there since 4 playing and were hungry.

    Also, the workers asked me if I had containers for things, which of course I didn't since the reviews all said they wrapped the food up for them.

    All relatively minor issues, but thats why i gave them a 4 star instead of 5. It would be 5 stars n the food quality though. Everyone raved about the meat and salsa.

    The food was delicious! Jesus was polite and easy to work with.
    The employees stuffed themselves silly, and they really enjoyed the lunch.
    We would use Jesus again for another employee luncheon, in the future.

    Thank you so much for the excellent service and the best street tacos I've ever tasted.Everything went smoothly and you were on time and ready to serve our guests. The food was very authentic and good. I had guests who said they have had street tacos before from other companies but liked ours better. The homemade tortillas were fantastic! I will definitely ask you to cater another party and refer you to others! You deserve the 5 stars!!!! Thank you so much!!!!

    Dear Bajas Tacos, Thank you for the wonderful food and service. Your family style home-made food was wonderful. I loved the whole beans, grilled meat and chicken, home-made tortillas and salsa. Our guests, many who have experienced other taco carts, all mentioned how tasty everything was. Thank you for adding to our party's success!

    We used Baja's Taco for a welcome reception party. They did a great job. They were early, the food was ready on time and they cleaned up afterwards. The food was really good. We had several people comment on the quality of the food. I would highly recommend them. We would use them again

    The food was excellent. The service was great. The shrimp tacos were a huge hit. I handed out the name and number to everyone because it was great.

    The food is awesome! The home made tortillas are delicious and not too thick which tends to happen with home made tortillas. We hired Baja Tacos for our wedding and had many guests complimenting the food. People were going back for seconds and thirds. I wish I had because I was left wanting more the next day. They were on time to set up and on time to serve. Jesus was flexible in arrival time and easy to work with as our guest attendance kept increasing. It can be nerve racking using a caterer you've never used before for a big event like your wedding. I am completely satisfied that we went with Baja Tacos.

    Bajas Tacos did a great job. They may have showed up a little late but they were up and serving quickly. We had about 80 guest, most from out of state. Many times i heard people say they had been in San Diego and this was the best mexican food they had, and how fresh everything tasted. And those of who live in CA agreed that these were some damn good street tacos. Thank you for a great event and for all your help and professionalism. Great time with great people

    Bajas Tacos did a fantastic job and the food was delicicous! They arrived on time, got started right away and the food was ready exactly when scheduled. Every single guest at the party commented on how good the food was, and almost everyone had seconds (quite a few had thirds!). The food was fresh, and there was lots of it! Several friends asked for Baja Tacos information so they could use them for parties too. When I read some of the other reviews, I wondered if they were true-they are! Jesus was so easy to work with, and I know we will use Baja Tacos again.

    The service and the food were outstanding!! Couldn't have asked for anything more. Had more than enough food and my guests loved it! Would hire Bajas Tacos again in an instant!! Thanks so much for everything, Jesus!!!

    I feel so fortunate to have found Bajas Tacos! Like many of you out there I searched yelp and google, but was not pleased with what I found and what others had to say. Look no further! I found Thumbtack.com and Jesus' company...everyone had the exact same experience my fiancé and I had! They were awesome!

    Here's the scoop: Engagement party; 60 people (only 50 RSVPd); grilled Chicken, steak and pork; tons of homemade guacamole, salsa and chips; grilled onions and veggies; rice and beans and last but not least, on-site made tortillas (corn and flour). All fresh, all homemade and all 100% delicious.

    Guests has thirds and fourths and could not stop raving about the food. Needless to say, not only was the food amazing and plentiful, but Jesus and his family were pleasant and professional, working behind the scenes to make the party go smoothly. They set up, served and cleaned up without any direction from me. As host, this was greatly appreciated. My only hope is that he doesn't become too busy to work with me in the future! I know my company (boss was present) is already going to hire them for our company parties. Book early because I get the sense word is getting out on them. We can't say enough praise.

    Bajas Tacos did a wonderful job at my party, working tirelessly in spite of the rain. They came prepared with a canopy and a large table to put the food on. My guests all said that the food was great and they ate lots of it and enjoyed it all. Some wanted their card so they could hire them in the future. The food was fresh. Wish I could have watched the preparation, but the rain made that difficult. Jesus made a point of cleaning up completely and packaging up the leftovers for me to keep. Thank you Bajas Tacos.

    Wow! It doesn't get better than this! Not only was the food amazing Jesus and his team came on time, did an amazing job and even cleaned up and packed all the leftovers for us to keep. Everything was delicious, fresh and made on the spot. They were extremely courteous and professional. Our friends all complemented us on how great the food was and some of them asked us for their cards. We will be hiring them again for our daughter's birthday. Thank you Jesus and team.

    Best Mexican food ever! They came and prepared everything fresh, on the spot from chopping up veggies, cooking the perfectly seasoned meat, and making delicious tortillas. They were very reasonably priced, efficient, and cleaned up everything. Very pleasant and easy to work with. People can't stop talking about the good food and can't wait for our next party!

    Thank you guys for the great food.

    They just recently catered my event, and the food was freshly cut and prepared on the spot. I didn't have to make anything, but provide appetizers and drinks for my guests. The salsas and guacamole was good, and the tacos/molitas were delicious. The service was wonderful and everyone at my event was pleased with the food.

    I would highly recommend Baja Tacos :)

  • 5/5 stars Verified Review

    Jesus and his company got to my party about 15 min early to set up (1 Star for that!) I notice that all the salsas & guacamole was done on site as well as all the grilling of the meats (1 Star for that!). I honestly can say that he brought enough food for 50+ guest when he only quoted me for 25 (1 Star for that!) All my guest mention how good & fresh the food was comparing other Taquero they have tired (1 Star for that!). One of the things that made him different from the other taqueros hat I had consider using were that they make FLOUR tortillas. Over all I would so hire him again in heart beat!!! Now let me go and enjoy some of my leftover from my party :) (1 Star for that!)

    We found Baja Taco's Catering Service on Thumbtack, and just used them on 8-14-11. Our daughter is going away to Montana to earn her masters degree. Jesus and his whole crew were very friendly, and the food was fantastic, 3 different meats. Fresh hand made tortillas made at the party, fresh salsa's and all the fixing. We and many of our guests will use them in the future. Jesus thanks to you and you crew, you made a special event even better. Ken

    The service was outstanding! The food was so good, everyone wanted Jesus' number & were happy to have leftovers!

    The fresh tortillas were the best I've had north of the border. We will be calling again! Muchas gracias Esmerelda y Jesus!

Question and answer

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. First of all Double check quality over the price, price among Catering business are with in .50 cents of dlls or 2.00 dlls max the difference, per person but quality difference among us is really huge, I know that because customer told me so, then if posible ask for a tasting in order to check quality before hire anybody, if you does not want to have a really bad experince then try before to hire.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. I would like that customers knows that in order to live of Catering business, you have to have a lot of mouth to mouth recommendations, others people does catering as a compliment of it job but We only do Catering and it is really hard to get new customer every week, thats why is so important do your job really good in order people talk about your business, I start my business because I enjoyed prepare food on my family and friends events, then someones friend offer to pay me to prepare some food for his son party and then start thinking to start a business doing what I really enjoyed , and here I am.
