Excellent service great food and very professional. Loved the fact that they traveled to Jamul for my sisters wedding. I highly recommend their services. I definitely will be using them again
I called and hired them for a brokers open 24hours before I had it! They were my saving grace!!! The food was amazing!!! Raving Reviews!!! They are a sweet company and i would totally use them again.
I was very pleased with the service of Baja tacos, the food was excellent, everything on time and cordial attention, reasonable price. I would recommend to anyone.
Great food and great service! They arrived early, set up everything and made amazing food! My guests were impressed with the freshness and quality of the food and service! I would recommend this catering service to everyone!
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!
Thank you so for your great service :) your constant communication with me, reassured me everything will be stress free on my part. Our 1st Annual reunion was a success due to the great food provided. I appreciate you providing excellent service & even providing containers for the food that was left. I look forward to working with you again.
Food was amazing - very authentic! Friendly service. Highly recommended!!
They were on time. In fact half an hour early. The service was great and the food was excellent. I would definitely hire them next time.
Baja's Tacos was great! I hired them for my military promotion and was a bit concerned that they might not be on time. My event was on a strict timeline since everyone had to go back to work. Baja's Tacos proved me wrong. Before I had a chance to worry about them, they were on the premises setting up. But this isn't the best part. Their timliness was good but they're food was even better! I've had many catered tacos. Shoot, I've had many tacos of all kinds, catered or not! Well these were up there at the very top. The salsas, the mulitas, the horchata, the handmade tortillas. It was all good. I usually don't like handmade tortillas because people usually get them wrong making them too thick for tacos. Not Baja's; they were perfect. As if that weren't enough, their prices are very reasonable and competitive; check for yourselves. I like to give credit where credit is due. Thank you Baja's for making my promotion a success.
These guys are awesome and I mean AWESOME! I used them for my Navy Retirement party. They showed up on time, to the minute. The food was FANTASTIC. Guests went back 2-3x. The service was great! My party was a blast and everybody commented on the food and how fantastic it was. "Fan-freakin'-tastic" I believe was a quote from cousin who,btw went to culinary school. Thank you for making it a great night!!! This is the best best catering service I have ever had. I host a lot of parties and will use them again,for sure! Thank you!
I hosted 80 people for my daughter's 1st birthday party this past weekend. Baja's Tacos was amazing! My guests couldn't get enough of the fresh tortillas and guacamole. It's the way to go for a big bash - no mess, no fuss, and no clean up!
I can't say enough good things about the food & service - they were an absolute hit at my party. They arrived early and their service was fantastic. Several of my guests commented to me how much they loved the food. I would highly recommend the fish tacos - very yummy! I know I will be hiring them again in the future as will several of my guests.
They were on time to our event, which is very important to us. The food was rediculously good. Great flavor, and a large variety of food. We will hire them again. The only thing I would like to add to this review to possibly help this business is that they should smile more and interact with the people as they are serving their food. Some people were confused. They were not sure if to serve themselves or if they served the food. They were not speaking. A smile goes a long way and you feel welcomed. That's all
Highly recommend Baja's Tacos & Catering! The food was amazing and cooked fresh at the event. They arrived on time, were very organized and great to work with. When they left, the area where they prepared and cooked the food was immaculate. Guests commented on the quality and freshness of the food. Will definitely be using them for future events.
If you're looking for delicious, authentic Mexican food this is taquero service for you. We had a couple named (Pablo and Paty who were very friendly and hard-working...and in the future will request them again). The tortillas were handmade fresh flour and corn on site, all my guests we're impressed with that. The meats (chicken, adobada, and carne asada) were good cuts, not greasy plancha style meat. The rice and beans and all the taco trimmings (salsa, guac, grilled onions, etc.) were excellent too as well as fresh Jamaica and horchata drinks. My guests kept commenting on how great the service was. We had a birthday party with 100 guests and we would hire them again in a heartbeat! Thanks Jesus I will be recommending you to others.
This is the second time I have used Baja's Tacos and will probably not be the last time! The service provided by Baja Tacos is second to none. The cooking of the meat on-site and home made tortillas you just can't beat that. My mom who does not like any outside cooking even had high praise for the food. My guest always leave on a happy tummy!!!The price is well worth it. I have went on site locations to try out other taquizas and they don't even compare one-bit to Baja's Tacos...Thanks for your service and look forward to future events!!!
The service was superb they were on time actually 15 min earlier. The food was fresh and delicious. My guest all raved about the food.Thanks for making our baby shower a great day!
The food was plentiful and delicious! Everyone enjoyed the tacos.
The tortillas were fresh and the variety of salsas were welcomed.
Mr. Jesus was ready to serve on time. Enough help was provided to ensure that he did not run out of anything.
We will definitely use his services again.
We have used them several times at my company for catered lunches for approx. 100 people in the Sorrento Valley area. They are awesome and always a hit with all the employees. Food is great. They make it easy for me to schedule and plan, take care of everything, and leave the leftovers (if there are any). We had tried a few other companies before we found them, but once we did they have been the only one we use.
Great taco bar! They were on time and brought lots of great good cooked to order for the guests. Good authentic Mexican food and great service. I will use them again!
We hired Jesus, for a company luncheon. He arrived punctual and our food was ready to be served at the set time. Loved the authentic Mexican flavors of the meats, salsas and guacamole. servers were efficient, nice and professional. A plus the aguas frescas, or drinks, we had horchata and jamaica (hibiscus) would of loved that they provided larger cups for the drinks. We definitely would recommend and hire again.
Jesus catered a party of over 100 people for us- the food was great and reasonably priced. He was on time, courteous and cleaned up his area when they were done serving. No complaints.
Excelente servicio y calidad , tacos deliciosos y muy buena atención segunda contratación y esperemos otras más .
I'm rating Baja's tacos outstanding. Damian and Alma arrived 15 minutes prior to the time they said that they were going to be there. Food was delicious (very fresh). All guest were very content with the service. Damian and Alma have a very nice attitude that made our experience very pleasant.
Excellent food and a great price. This is the second year that Baja's Catering has come to our school for Teacher Appreciation. It is well received by all. The food is so fresh, prepared with great care and all utensils, plates and horchata is included. We are using them again for a District level event.
Baja's Tacos & Catering were spectacular. The food was great. Everything was fresh and done on site. I was impressed with the organization and presentation of the meal. Several of my guests inquired about their services. They were well prepared.
Excellent service! Food prepared on site was enjoyed by all as we celebrated a family birthday. Set up, serving, and cleanup all included and well done. Plus it was good value!
On time and awesome food. They were willing to work with us when our start time fell behind a bit so that was nice of them.
This young couple did a fantastic job at our party. They were right on time, set up in an hour, and food was ready exactly when they said it would. We ordered all three meats, and they provided all the rest of the trimmings, and since this was a Mexican dominated party, all our guests raved about the food. We kept all the leftovers which everyone was eating the next day. I would hire them again in a minute, so give them a call, you won't be disappointed, great hard working young couple.....
They were very easy to work with. They were on time and the food was good.
Great food and great service. Definitely worth the price. Friends are still asking me for the number of "my taquero".
Thanks, We enjoyed working for you, this is the email you sent me:
Every thing was super and we have tons of food left. Thank you so much for helping make our day.
Excellent service on the day of the event. Prompt replies to emails to schedule catering. Delicious food. All of our guests could not have been more pleased - though guacamole was a bit salty this time. Highly recommend this group.
Baja's tacos are the best every thing was so delicious. I would recommend them to anyone i was very satisfied.
How can I email you? I'm interested
Or you can call 619-664-9699
Looking forward hearing from you.
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 and team were very accommodating. They arrived on time and we had plenty of food. Jesus was really easy to work with and I recommend him when I'm asked! Thank you Baja's Tacos and Catering!
I have tried calling and the phone is disconnected...anyone have the email address?
We lost the phone and waiting for the insurance that send a new one, please send email bajascatering@hotmail, thanks for your interest
Baja Tacos and Catering did a great job at our tailgate! The food was delicious and warm and made fresh on site! I would definitely have them again and I recommend their services to anyone who wants a quality taquero!
The food was delicious! They arrived on time served the food and cleaned everything before they left. All of the guests complimented how good the food was. We would definitely use them
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!

I was very happy with the food and service provided by Baja's Tacos. They were early, food was served at the time given and it was tasty and warm. Everyone enjoyed the food and I appreciate the professionalism and excellent communication through the entire process. I will use them in the future and will be happy to refer them to anyone looking to cater a party. Thanks for everything Jesus and staff!!!
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
We are a California State University in the San Diego area and have utilized Jesus' Taquero business for the past two years. His business never disappoints, we are extremely satisfied with the delicious food and outstanding service.
They provided great service and everyone enjoyed the food and the professionalism of the team that served the food. Definitely will be using them again.
By far the best taco cart I have ever bought. Nearly 1/3 of the people at the party will be using him in the future. The food was delicious. Honest, clean and caring. They hallways go the extra mile.
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
Delicious food and wonderful customer service. They set up all on their own without disturbing the party and had everything cleaned up before we knew it. This is the second time we've used them, it was a pleasure once again.
They delivered what was agreed to..very friendly service,clean...on time..food was fresh and good,just would have liked a little more taste (salt). I would use them again!
Awesome! Highly recommended, great food and even better service!
We hired Jesus' catering service for our granddaughter's First Birthday Party. Our guests raved about the food and its presentation. There were a few glitches, miscommunication of park location, beans were a bit undercooked, forgot plates but overall the cooks were very nice and did an excellent job. I would definitely recommend them and hire them again. Thank you.
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...!
Thank you for a great job at my sons birthday, this is like the 4th time I've had you for party's and like always your food and service was wonderful. Thank you so much. See you at my next party.
We used Baja's Tacos for our daughter's 1st birthday party of about 50-75 people. They were amazing and brought everything so we had no set up or clean up! They offered beef, chicken & pork tacos with all the trimmings, drinks as well as paper goods. Even quesadillas for the kids! The food was fresh & AMAZING! Everyone loved it! We were referred to them by three other family members who have also used them. It's a common name in our household for our events we need catered. We will for sure be using 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!
I am so happy that Baja's Tacos catered my backyard fiesta! Our 60 guests raved about all the food - fish, pork, chicken and beef tacos, beans and rice. The guacamole was fresh and to watch the tortillas being made was a treat for the out-of-towners. You didn't skimp on anything. We were MORE than satisfied with your outstanding company.You arrived on time, set up was swift and the presentation was authentic and colorful. I had tried four other places before a friend recommended Baja's Tacos. Hands down this is the best catered Mexican food in town.
This is the second we have contacted Baja Tacos and once again
It's a hit all our guest were pleased. Highly recommend them and
Will definitely use them again.
Great service, great food!!! 10 out of 10!!!
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 came highly recommended by a good friend that attended an event that Jesus had catered. I hire Jesus for my daughter's Baby Shower and I was not disappointed, his service was excellent, clean, and delicious. I will definitely hire him again for any other event.
Great Food, Great Service. The staff was on time and very professional. Highly recomended. - - Thanks Jesus
Jesus has catered two events for me and one for my sister in law. They show up on time, do exactly what they promise, which is cook up bomb fresh tacos for everyone there.
I was a little skeptical as hired Jesus for a work event. I was worried that things would go wrong making me look bad with the agency. I am pleased to say that I worried for nothing. The Caterers were punctual, professional, clean and courteous. The food was delicious. Everyone loved the food and where highly impressed with the freshness and authentic flavor! Some are considering hiring Baja's Tacos for future events. Caterers prepped the food on site rather quick, served guests for 2 hours and put all the leftovers in containers for me. Event was for 60 people and had more than enough food for everyone to enjoy. Overall I was very impressed and pleased with the service and food. Would definitely hire again! Gracias!
Very happy again with using Baja's Taco's & Catering!!! We will definitely use them again!!!
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job your company did for our son's birthday party over the weekend. Our guests were very impressed with the quality of your food and I appreciated the professional manner in which your staff conducted their business. I look forward to using your company again in the future and have already passed your name on to many of my friends. Thanks again.
These guys were great! I had them for my son's 7th birthday party in our backyard and everyone loved the food! Its super authentic and tasty and the 2 person crew was wonderful. They grilled meat and made tortillas fresh. They had all the traditional salsas, beens and rice. The workers were very professional and efficient. I highly recommend them. Someone else commented to have your own plates, and I am glad I did as I was able to provide stronger ones. My only complaint was that they were pricey.
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!
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.
Would highly recommend Baja's Taco. Jesus and his staff were on time, courteous and made extra effort to provide quality service to our guests. I had nothing but good comments regarding the service that was given and how delicious the food was. Thank you Jesus for your outstanding service!
Hired for my baby shower, they were very punctual, food was great specially their tortillas, service was excellent!
All my guest loved the food
Let me start by saying that we were very skeptical to try out a new catering service, as our family had used the same caterer for 10 years. Baja Tacos food was delicious at the tasting they provided. The meat quality and taste was exquisite ..... Still we were nervous of the unknown. Service is very important to our family. The owner did seem a little overwhelmed and maybe not too irganized, as far as not remembering the amount he originally quouted or the amount of deposit he gave. He was proffesional and eager to please his customer!.. We had a party of 75 guest. We were extremely content with their service, attitude and food. On behalf of our family and 75 guests, we recommend Baja Tacos for your next event.
Everything was excellent! Great service and amazing food! More than enough to go around we were very impressed with everything!
I hired Jesus for my son's 10th birthday party this past weekend, on April 13, 2013. The two people he sent to catered my event were great. They arrived on time and were very polite to my guest. The food was really good, made fresh, all my guest comments were good wich was satisfying to me. The service that Jesus provided me was excellent, I will recommend Baja's Tacos & Catering to all my friends and family and will look foward to using it in the near future for my daughter 3rd birthday.
I have and would recommend Baja's Tacos & Catering. They arrived a little bit earlier than planned (which was perfect) , were courteous, kind and efficient. The food was very good and we had many compliments from our guests. The staff cleaned up and even brought the leftover food into our home afterward. I have already scheduled by next event with them !
The only recommentation that I have is that you place some business cards on the serving table .
Baja's Tacos and Catering catered our son's wedding and did a wonderful job. They were on time, clean, considerate and the food was all homemade with the meats and tortillas made on site. One of the most impressive things about Jesus, the owner, was how quickly he responded to questions and how important it was to him that we would have no worries and could just relax and enjoy this very special event. Thank you Jesus and staff.
everything about jesus was good! good customer service, good price and good food! i strongly recommend jesus taquero! don't look any further if you need a good taquero. jesus taquero made my daughters birthday very easy for me and my wife.
Thanks Victor, You are such great customer, Since the beginning I enjoyed talking with you, explaining everything the services includes, customers like you make my job easier. Regards
I hired Baja's Tacos & Catering for an afternoon event at my home. They catered for a gathering of 60. They were fabulous. They arrived on time to set up and begin preparing food. My guests truly enjoyed the food, especially the handmade tortillas. They were so impressed that they were made right there. Everyone ate a lot and many people requested their contact information. The food was fresh and again, tasted great. The staff was professional and efficient. They cleaned up well when they were done. I highly recommend them.
We cater for all kind of people, and working for customer like you make me think I am bless, you were so kind with us, My family thanks your generous Tip of $ 100 Dlls, Best wishes.
My husband and I hosted our daughter's 1st birthday party and could not have been more disappointed with Bajas Tacos. They showed up 45 minutes after the agreed setup time, and did not serve guests until 1 hour and 15 minutes after they were supposed to. This left all of our party guests with absolutely nothing to eat. Furthermore, we clarified before the party that this would be full-service and tacos would be made by staff for our guests. My husband at one point had to go behind the table and make tacos for our guests because they left the table and food sitting unattended. After serving food an hour and 15 minutes late, they only left the food out for 30 minutes and then scooped it into tins and started to pack up. Most guests had only had 1-2 tacos before they started packing up. For half of the amount we spent, my husband could have bought all of the tacos and trimmings and cooked and served our guests on time. We will never be using them again, and I am coordinating a wedding next weekend in which they are supposed to cater and will be finding a new caterer ASAP.
First we apologize to start 45 minutes late, 2:30 instead 1:45 as Omar her Husband told me, yes we did, but not the time She said (Primero llegaron 45 minutos tarde. Segundo me dicieron que la comida iba estar listo a las 2) , this text is from an email Omar just sent. I negotiated everything with her husband not with her, I showed him our buffet style setup,( Everybody know what buffet style means ) people serve themselves and we take care of maintain food on trays, he came and tasted the tacos at our place and was very happy about it, Some of their guest came and say thanks for the wonderful food we just prepared, Also commented that take care of Omar's Wife and Mother in Law because they were to picky and rude, I see now what they meant. Omar was drunk and just complaining of everything because her wife told him to ( he confessed to my employee ), he called me at 4:15 that my people was packing, if they started serving 2:30 instead of 2 pm as Omar wanted , then how she said that we serve only by 30 minutes, come on lets talk with the Truth, It is hard when you negotiate with Omar and then his wife and mother in law wants something different, We apologize for the lateness, but they never mentioned about food quality, And I wonder why their Guests, not them, gave us a good tip of 50 Dlls, maybe their guest saw other things that they did not, ( by the way, on our way to their place there was a car accident and that was the cause of part of our lateness ) , Something that I can not control.
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.
Thanks for hiring us, for your comment and for the Tip.
Jesus' crew were great! They were on time, set up beautifully and cleaned up quickly. The food was delicious and fresh. My guests were very pleased with the food and service. They left us with all the leftovers. I recommend him highly. I will call him for my next event.
They showed up early, setup and started working immediately! When my guests started eating the compliments came shortly after. The food was amazing and service was awesome. I will definately use Jesus again. The red sauce was Awesome!
I needed someone to cater a 90th birthday party for 50 people on short notice, and after looking at the reviews, decided to use Jesus. Couldn't have been happier. Jesus and his family are very nice and accommodating and really care about pleasing their customers. They arrived on time, prepared and served everything on schedule and our guests were VERY impressed. Everyone complimented ME on a wonderful party, but it was really Jesus & company who deserve the praise. Thank you SO MUCH for making this milestone birthday celebration memorable!
Outstanding Taco's and service! They catered my backyard party last Saturday and my all guest commented on the fresh food and outstanding service. The catering folks were on time and professional. Thank you again Baja's Tacos, I will definitely recommend and use you again. - David Viera
After looking tirelessly online for a decent taquiero, our company decided to take a chance on Bajas Tacos & Catering to cater our company luncheon, and boy were we happy we did! Being as I am from Mexcio, I find it hard to find good Authentic Mexican tacos, and I think jesus and his team hit the nail on the head! Delicious authentic Mexican food at an unbeatable price, you must try Bajas Tacos and Catering for your next event - you will not be sorry!
The Baja's Tacos & Catering staff arrived on time and stayed almost 3 hours setting-up, serving and wrapping-up our requested taco catering for our sister's Carnival Themed Baby-Shower.
Even with our last minute request (5-days before the event) Jesus responded to our request, immediately by email and a phone call. He offered a complete menu and reasonable price.
The day of the event, his staff arrived on time and once shown where they would be located they set up with no problems. The staff worked well with the family and serving all our guest who were eager to jump in line when the saw the staff was ready.
Everyone said the tacos were great and even after the 2hours of service, there the staff provided us with the leftovers which guest helped themselves to 4th servings.
Thank you again!
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.
Excellent! service they showed up on time!! Imagine not mexican time. The food was great fresh and tasty. I will use them again and again. Bravo!
Muchas gracias por su servicio. A todos les gusto el sabor de la carne y el hecho que no tenia grasa, las tortillas recien salidas y todo fresco hecho ahi mismo, ademas de que hubo basante comida, lo tendremos en mente para futuros eventos.
The service was great. They arrived on time to setup and prepare with enough time to start serving when we asked. The food was delicious and there was plenty to go around despite our worry that there would not be enough to feed all the mouths we had. Great service. Great food. Great time.
Excellent team, we had them for an xmas party. They came early, and prepared everything from scratch. The fresh corn tortillas were fantastic, as was the guac, salsa, and meat.
Jesus did a fantastic job for us! The food was wonderful, plentiful, priced right, arrived right on time. Jesus was great to work with. Very professional. He responded promptly to all of our questions and needs. We will definitely refer him and use him again. Thanks and happy holidays to Jesus and team!
I was a little disappointed that I didn't receive exactly the service I paid for and their arrival and set up was later than scheduled, slightly delaying our own set up. Presentation was not as I had pictured either. I did receive good feedback on the food.
We always focus on food freshness, flavor and quality, I like this reviews because it is an opportunity to improve, but would like more clear comments, like " slightly delaying" not understand how long we delayed, If customer tell us what they needs exactly and what they want we will do our best to fulfill their needs.
Wonderful food, great people, very nice set up......Everyone loved it
Thanks for your comments, we enjoyed working for you , family and guests
I hired Baja's Tacos & Catering for my daughter's baby shower for 50 people this past weekend. The service was great and the food was EXCELLENT!! They arrived on time and were very friendly. I would highly reccomend them!!
We hired Baja's for a wedding for 62 people. They showed up 45 minutes late. My guests were STARVING by the time they got to eat! The tacos are AMAZING and I can't say enough about how delicious they are. BUT- the rice, beans, enchiladas, taquitos were terrible. No flavor at all.
All in all, we were happy with our experience because the tacos are so delicious. Baja's would be great for birthdays or park events - But I did not feel they were professional enough to hire for a wedding, even a casual backyard wedding like mine. They parked their UHAUL truck right next to the food tables for all the guests to admire!
We Respect all customers comments, but also wants to make the points clear, we had a vehicle breakage that is why we rented a truck to be the soonest possible, it happens when you cater 500 parties every year, Whole Beans are not big deal it normally cook with water and salt what other flavor do you want on the beans, rice are cooked only with natural ingredients, tomatoes, garlic, onions and species, come on not flavor at all?, enchiladas are cooked with chile California , garlic and onion with cheese inside, and taquitos comes with cabbage , salsa and cream not alone, I want to think my customer have never tried authentic Mexican food home made style, some people likes taco bell, that not authentic .
we have cater Weddings and parties
for up to 850 people, from casual to luxury in la Jolla, Carlsbad etc and you can check all the more than 100 reviews customer wrote, Also if you do not provide a parking for us we have to park it wherever we can, or customer have the right to let me know he or she is not agree where we park our van.
Excellent service and fantastic food! Highly recommended and very friendly and professional staff!
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, how tasty these tacos truly are!!!!! Jose and his staff are amazing and they make sure the food is ready to serve and warm at all times! I would absolutely recommend Baja Tacos for their great taste and even greater prices!!!! Thank you Jose!
I would HIGHLY Recommend Jesus Taquero's Baja's Tacos & Catering! The food was delicious, the servers were excellent, and our guests are still talking about how wonderful the entire experience was. We will definitely be asking them back for future events.
We had a bday party of about 80 people and the food and service was great! They arrived on time and served the food on time as promised. There was plenty of food for everyone plus leftovers that they left for us. All of our guests loved the food, service and presentation! We will definitely use them again and also refer them to our friends and family.
My husband and I had recently hired Baja Tacos & Catering for our baby shower last weekend and we loved them! I didn't pay too much attention on time but they were very professional & friendly, the set up was nice and food was GREAT! Everyone commented on how yummy the food was and we had more than enough to feed our party of 40 people. They also gave us the left over's which came in hand for our guests who got hungry again later on in the day. I highly recommend them and will use them again in future.
Cynthia & David
Baja's Tacos was BEST QUALITY AND BEST SERVICE. The owner really cares about his customers and his reputation. All of my 75 guest said Baja Tacos was by far the best taco caterer they had ever had. My guest have used many local caterers in the past and I am still receiving excellent feedback on how Great the food was. I would highly recommend this company.
Thank you Baja Taco.....
They did a great job. Everybody loved the food. They were on time and professional. There was more than enough food and they stayed until everybody was done eating.
We worked with baja catering for my wedding reception. They came on time and everything ran so smoothly. Everything they served was DELICIOUS!! My guests were raving about the food all night. Get the fish tacos! I cannot thank baja catering enough for all the hard work and for making my wedding reception the best night ever!!!
Did not end up using them as my sister in law found someone before their response to me--but they were quick to respond & seemed so ready to take on my party at such a short last minute notice-will definetely use them in the future-& will again use Thumbtack
It was so wonderful to know you would be there to set up, cook and serve the food for our gathering of 50. You arrived on time, food was ready on time, many of our guests asked for your card so they could use you for their events. Besides all that, the food was excellent! Thank you!
The service was excellent. They arrived on the time they said they would. The food was great. The people serving were very polite and helpful. I will definitely use them in the future.
Baja's Tacos & Catering did a wonderful job for us catering our wedding. Everyone has complimented us on the food the most. I loved how they set up quick and got things rolling. The only thing is they were late to set up but they pulled through in the end. They also used easy to store containers so we could easily put away the left overs. We were eating tacos for 2 days after the wedding. The pricing is great and the food tastes amazing. Thank you!!
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!
Setup and delivery is reliable and timely... food is fresh and delicious... food stations are clean and attractive.
It was for my birthday at my house. It was only for 40 people but I swear they bought enough food to feed an army. They were on time even early to set up. Made the food right in front of my guess eyes. The guac, salsa and the carne asada grilled. They did everything that was discussed prior. I would highly recommend them over any taco cart. Just a little side note: I am extremely picky and I was satisfied!! Thank you for doing your job guys. I would higly recommend them. Leave the cooking to them!!
We had a party on 9/1/12 with 30 people & had the 3 different tacos with all the trimmings. In a nutshell, the food was superb, even down to the rice and beans! Everyone was raving about ALL OF IT and kept going back for 2nd's & 3rd's. The 2 workers were busy every minute insuring we had plenty of hand-made tortillas coming to us throughout the evening. I was hesitant to book them at first as I had only read the reviews and had not spoken to anyone in person but you have nothing to worry about. They were quiet, worked hard and cleaned up after themselves. But the most important thing of course was the quality of the food-we wholeheartedly recommend them for any occasion, you will not be disappointed. On a side note, I ordered 50 bunuelo cookies (shaped like a delicate star) just to put out on my table as a side snack. We had dinner at 6 and these cookies were still slightly warm and delicious. They were a hit--be sure and order them.
Baja tacos always offers the best food at a great price with the best customer service!
We had Baja's Tacos and Catering work two events with us, one for 500 people and one for 850 people. They arrive about 4 hours prior to start time and made everything fresh and from scratch. You can really tell the care they put into their work and food. They served the high number of people quickly and efficiently! With how well they handled a large event like this, I can only imagine how well they do smaller events. They were incredibly reasonabiy priced and enjoyable to work with!
We hired Baja Tacos for our twins 1st birthday party and this was definetly the way to go for a party of 50 people! The food was SO good and everything was made fresh on site. They showed up on time and had the food ready exactly when we needed it. Everyone at the party said they were impressed with the quality of food and the service. The tortillas (corn AND flour) were made fresh. The nice surprise was I wanted to have snow cones to serve to the guests since it was going to be 90 degrees outside and we were at a park, and they were able to provide snow cone service to our guests! That was a huge plus to not have to hire an outside company for that as well. Having a party for 1 year old twins is a lot of work and Baja Tacos really made the day enjoyable by taking the stress out of everything and providing excellent service and very reasonable prices. Will hire them again in a heart beat!
I've used Baja's Tacos & Catering around 4 times over the last few years. They are awesome! The food is always delicious and fresh! I would definitely recommend them!
El servicio y la comida estuvieron excelentes, mis invitados hicieron también muy buenos comentarios, muy ricos los tacos.
Ensenada Style Fish Tacos to another level!
I had the fortune to have tasted and experience Jesus's amazing tacos at a friends party and was blown away! Over the years I have hired at least 20+ quero caters. I can honestly say that Baja Tacos & Catering is by far is the best I have ever used and tried, HANDS DOWN!. They can serve all types of meats, but I especially like their fish tacos! Unlike other Taquero's, Jesus at Baja’s Tacos & Catering prepares all their food fresh on location including the corn tortillas! Everyone at our party was amazed with the quality and taste. Many at the party consider themselves to be fish taco expert snobs and said they were the best ever!
Their food is so good they are heavily booked and could be experiencing growing pains. Yes they were a few minutes late. No big deal. This worked to my benefit as my guests were late and Jesus instructed his crew to stay much longer than promised. I have found you get better service (anywhere) and a much more enjoyable experiences working with the system not against it.
Here's a list of food they provided me:
Beer Battered Sea Bass Fish Tacos,
Flour & Corn Tortillas Handmade on location,
Mozzarella Cheese for Quesadillas,
Cheese for tacos,
Grilled and Fresh Jalapeños,
Sliced Red Radishes,
Tortilla Chips and Pico de Gallo,
4 AMAZING Salsas,
Fresh Natural Mexican Drinks ie Limonada and Horchata,
All paper goods.
Can't say enough! GO FOR IT!
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.
THERE IS NO RATING LOW ENOUGH FOR THESE UNPROFESSIONAL SO-CALLED CATERERS
These people RUINED my daughter's wedding!!! I am still in SHOCK! All of the planning and love that went into preparing for her wedding and they showed up 1.5 hours late!!! Guests were starving there was NO food whatsoever! Then they open up BAGGED tortilla chips and served the food in the most HORRID pots and pans and they were dressed in shorts and tee shirts that were not appropriate and their staff stood around and ate OUR wedding cake and the food that was for our guests! They did not even provide all of the foods they said they would. We were told by our bartender that he has done other events where they have been the caterers and they did not go well either. Do yourselves a favor and DONT use them. I should have known we were in trouble when the guy would not talk to me over the phone because he cant speak ENGLISH... so I had to get an interpreter to go over all of the details with him on a conference call and they STILL screwed us!
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!
The fish ceviche and carne asada were both great! The party was a big success. Thank you very much!!
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!
FOOD WAS EXCELLENT! THEY WERE PROFESSIONAL AND CURTIOUS. THIS IS A 5 STAR CATERING. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Wonderful service! Would use their services again. The food was fresh and made to order. They were very efficient and wonderful.
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
We just had Bajas Catering host our baby blessing of 200 people in Olivenhain(Encinitas area) and they were fantastic! The food was cooked fresh, even down to the flour tortillas. Our guest contacted us afterwards asking for their phone number to use for future events. They were clean, efficient, and hard workers. Our event was a huge hit because of their food! Thank you again Jesus and Crew! The Smith's
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!
Baja's Tacos & Catering
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
If you require handholding through the process do not contact Baja's Tacos BUT If you want the BEST traditional Mexican food available coupled with professional service then this is the caterer for you......Pablo&Emilia were delightful!! Again........in a heart beat!
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.
We had a birthday party for my daughters third birthday. There were about 80 people there. Jesus was very professional and even set up a taco tasting at his house a few weeks before hand so that I could try the food before choosing him as our caterer. The food is very good! Everything is freshly made including corn and flour tortillas! Everyone at our party ate to their hearts content! Thank you Jesus! We will recommend you to anyone who is looking for a good taquero.
I recently needed to find a taquero on really short notice, it was Wednesday and I needed the service for that Saturday. After contacting multiple places, Jesus from Baja's Tacos & Catering were the only ones to call me back. I must say I really lucked out! The set up was great, with everything that you need for the tacos. Salsas, guacamole, rice, beans, three different kinds of meat and the best part, hand made tortillas on the spot!! The food was VERY GOOD!! Not too mention the service that they provided was great! They were fast, friendly and professional. I will refer them to everyone I know and will definitely be using them again!!
Punctual, professional, clean and courteous. The food was delicious. My guests loved the food! Some are considering hiring Baja's Tacos for future events. I ordered them for 50 people. They prepped the food on site rather quick, served my guests for 2 hours and put all the leftovers in containers for me. Many of my guests served themselves 2-3 times . Some even made themselves carne asada nachos with the left over meat later in the evening during the Pacquiao fight. Totally worth the cost. I would definitely hire them again.
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!!!!
The food was excellent and there was plenty to share. The left-overs were enough to feed another crew. Clean up was prompt and service pleasant.
Many family members have used baja tacos & catering ,This is my first . They sure did a wonderful job , came early to make sure my guest ate at the time I wanted them to , the workers are very friendly . I food was to die for , we had everything to put on the taco , and the fish tacos amazing . My party was for 60 pp and they brought enough food to service plus I got some to take home .It was one less thing that I didn't have to worry about . The would recommended them for any occasion , your guest would love it .
Thank you so much Jesus
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.
Bajas Tacos does an amazing job of catering fresh and delicious food. They just catered my Mom's 70th at a park and everyone loved the food and there were generous portions. So delish! I'd hire them again without a second thought!
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!!!
It was a pleasure to deal with Jesus and Bajas Tacos. They catered my husband's birthday party and everyone loved the food! Thank you, Jesus, for making the party so perfect!
The service is great they were on time and the food is delicious i would so hire them again :)
there were a few misunderstandings from our end but the food was absolutely amazing. i was very satisfied with the food, drinks, and service. thank you so much baja tacos and you will definitely hear from us again.
thank you for your blessing.
-Ernesto & Ariadna Garcia
The food was delicious, everyone was raving about how good and fresh the food was! We had a lot of guests take home the leftovers. Thank you Bajas Tacos!
Thank you, Jesus. The food and service was excellent! We are extremely satisfied with your service and will definitely refer your business to family and friends. Your attention to detail was awesome... Thank You
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.
Absolutely Delicious! This is the second event Jesus and company at Bajas Tacos have done for us, and it won't be the last. Prompt, friendly service and fabulous authentic street taco cuisine.
Jesus and his crew did a great job for my son's first birthday! They were on time, everything was fresh and food was excellent. I would say this would have to be my best experience with a catering company. I would recommend Baja's Tacos to anyone and will use them again for future parties :)
I hired baja tacos and catering for my husband's 30th birthday and everything came out perfect. The food was very good and more than enough for the 100 guest that came. There was a time that i got nervous days before the party and they calmed me down and ensured me that the food would be plenty and they were right. Not to mention that the spanish rice and handmade tortillas and horchata(spelling?) were the best! A lot of my guest ask for their business card because they were impressed by the food and how everything was set up.They put all the leftovers food into containers that we have provided and cleaned up really well before leaving. i would definitely hire them again! the price you pay is beyond worth it:)
They catered an event for us and the food was really Good!
Amazing food!!! Love these guys!
We've used Baja Tacos for 3rd Time And we love the food and service. Their food is amazing and you get so much for a really great price. Catering isn't cheap but they have reasonable prices and you even get to keep the left over food. They make everything fresh right in front of you. Thank you Baja Tacos for catering my baby shower.
Baja Tacos catered our annual Holiday Party. All of our guest raved about the food and enjoyed the customer service and professionalism of the workers. We would recommend their services.
There is something to be said about handmade tortillas, it really does make a huge difference for a good meal. Baja's catering was really good, fresh, and authentic. Used them for a work party and did not hear one complaint about the food. We are even up in North County and despite the long drive up for delivery the food was hot and fresh. Would recommend their services to anyone looking for a delicious mexican feast!
Ok....Baja tacos is an AMAZING company!!!! We loved the food and the service was absolutely amazing!!! They came so prepared and on time with everything they needed to set up an amazing buffet!!!! I was very impressed with the delicious food and the great presentation!!! Thank you Baja Catering for catering our event! We will definitely use your services for our staff parties in the future!
Jesus and his crew did an amazing job at my holiday party. They served over 100 guests and everyone loved the food. We are still enjoying the leftovers. I tasted their food previously at a neighbor's house. The hand-made tortillas and salsa picante sold me, so I contacted them for our party and will do so again in the future. This is a small family business, not a chain and the quality and flavors are authentic and delicious. Jesus was easy to work with and corresponded via email which I appreciated. I will gladly refer them to my friends.
This was my second experience with the Bajas Tacos crew. I attended a friends party they catered and was very impressed with the quality of food and specialty drinks they provided. Tortillas were rolled and made on the spot and the food presentation was excellent. I was so impressed, my wife and I decided to hire them to cater our daughter's first birthday party. The crew arrived before the designated time and food was again excellent. All of our guests were pleased and so were we. Thanks Bajas Tacos. Will be calling on you in the future.
I've booked bajas Tacos twice for my kids birthday parties and will continue to do so for many birthdays to come. They have the most delicious and fresh food made on the spot! worth every penny! Can't wait for my sons next birthday, because I know everyone is going to eat soooo goood! Thank you so much for everything! will book my next party very soon!
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.
Baja was a very, very good decision for our party. The staff was quick, on time, clean, and the food was spectacular. I would recommend Baja's services to anyone. There is no doubt we will use them again!!
Thanks guys......Dustin Miner.
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!
Bakja Tacos did a great job catering our son's birthday party. The crew was on time and friendly. The food was very fresh and the tacos delicious. The price was reasonable and I would have them cater our event again. Thanks!!
I hired Baja Tacos for my moms Celebration of life an they were great. All my guess were impress with them the food was fresh just like they said it would an delicious. Defenilly on my list for my next event.
Thank you guys for the great food.
We used Bajas Catering for an engagement party and they were spectacular! They were on time, organized and pleasant to work with. The food was prepared fresh on site and ready to serve as our guests arrived. We received rave reviews all throughout the party and only when everyone was completely satiated did Bajas start to clean up. There was plenty of food for everyone and we still had leftovers to serve over the next couple of days. The value cannot be beat! I have referred a friend who had a party shortly after ours and my experience as a guest was no different!! I am thrilled to have found such a catering gem here in San Diego!
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 :)
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!)
Great service, hired them for a surprise party, at the time the person got to the venue everyboday got quiet even the taqueros :P....many people asked about them even after the party...100% sure we are going to hire them again...hand made tortillas the best!!!!
We recently had our daughter's wedding catered by Bajas Tacos. They did an excellent job. They were professional and super nice. We were able to sample the food before we hired them and they provided us with a delicious spread of food to sample, (which was actually a feast) They came to the reception venue early so we could go over where and how things would be set up. The food was fantastic. People were raving all night about how good it was. And the best part was we got to take home the leftovers. The price is the best I found. I would recommend them for any event. If I ever need a caterer again, I will definately use them.
The taqueros arrived at the time they said they would. Great service.The food was excellent and all my guest enjoyed the tacos! The guacamole was fresh and delicious. Many of my guest inquired about the tacos for an event they would like to have.
excelente service, and very good, fresh and tasty food
We had my daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner last week catered by Bajas Tacos-the food and service were Outstanding! Everything was fresh and cooked on my patio. The employees were very professional and accommodating. A few of my San Diego friends plan to use them in the future.
I would rate them 5/5.
The Bajas Tacos catering company is without a doubt an awesome taquiza catering. They were on time. Set up quickly. And, best of all, the food was delicious!!! I will definitely be hiring you guys again! Thank you!
Excellent catering!! Our guests raved about the food! They arrived early and even packaged up leftover food for us to keep!!! :)
We had a wonderful experience with Bajas Tacos who catered our son's wedding reception for 200. The food was fabulous and everyone raved about the horchata and fresh flour tortillas not to mention the salsas and freshly barbequed meat. Everything was fresh and made on the premises. They were professional and took care of everything they had agreed to. The only glitch was a flat tire en route which put them a little behind but they came in raring to go. I highly recommend this reasonably priced family owned caterer.
The tacos were Yummy! Thanks for Everything! We will be calling you again soon to book another party! It was so nice not haveing to clean up dishes and stuff.
Frederico from Baja's did an excellent job from start to finish. Our guest were constantly asking where I found them. I'm still eating tacos the next morning and loving them.
I have now used Bajas Tacos for two parties and I can't say enough about how professional and courteous their service is, and how delicious their food is- particularly the handmade fresh tortillas! Three of my friends have booked them for parties as a result of being at my party! I recommend them highly for any catering needs.
Bajas Tacos was referred to us by a friend whose beach party was catered by them. Only great things were told about Baja Tacos and we can say even more great things about them after they catered our wedding shower! Absolutely delicious tacos! with all the fixings so fresh! Their service was so accommodating. It really felt like a family cook-out with how personable yet professional they were. will definitely have them again at our next party!
The service was great! They were able to service my son's baptism of 100 people and still had some left overs. They were very nice and the price was within my budget. Everyone asked for their number before the party even ended. Will definitely use them again in the future.Thank you Bajas Tacos!
Called on a Sunday for them to cater a family party the following Sunday - no problem, asked for fish tacos, vegan fare, rice etc. They arrived on time, food was delicious, they provided everything .... Jesus and his family couldnt have been nicer, they cleaned up and left. All within 3 hours. Cheaper and better than taking everyone out to dinner. Fish tacos and corn tortillas were the favorite in our family. Everything seemed home made and super fresh.
Hired Baja to cater a huge rehearsal dinner at our home the night before our wedding. Everyone raved about the food, and we have been happily enjoying the bountiful leftovers for almost a week! Jesus even gave me some free marriage advice. I would highly recommend Baja for your home catering or large picnic needs.
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
We had a birthday party for my brother and sister in law's 40th. We had over 260 people in our backyard. The was a line on evening becayse the food was that good. We have had tons of comments from most people how great and fresh the food was. Bajas Tacos did an incredible job. We have already hired them for our next party. You got to try them--you won't regret it.
Bajas Tacos was amazing! Jesus was very easy to contact and communicate with. His group arrived promptly to the my daughter's 2nd birthday party and prepared EVERYTHING from scratch. I'm from LA county and was having my daughter's party in Carlsbad, which they had no hesitation to drive out to from Chula Vista. I have been to many parties that had taco catering and I have to say that my guest and I agreed that Bajas Tacos was by far the best we've had. We were very impressed that they cut all the salsas and guacamole right there and made fresh corn and flour tortillas. The meat was not pre-cooked (which many companies do) and was being grilled on site. Everything was prepared on time and was so very delicious. I also have to mention that their portions are plentiful. It's too bad that Bajas Tacos only does San Diego County because I would use them for every event!
We had Bajas Tacos cater our Office Party of about 45 people at my bosses beach home in Mission Bay. They were on time and set up quickly. The meat was very tasty and everyone commented to me that they really enjoyed the food. Many thanks Bajas Tacos! We will definately use you again!
Great food. Very professional. Well priced. Have used Baja Tacos twice and plan on using them again in the near future.
We had Bajas Tacos Catering at work and it was such a hit. Everyone loved the food. It was so fresh and delicious. Great food at a great price. I would definitely recommend Bajas Tacos!
These were the best tacos. Both the chicken and beef were very flavorful. The tortillas were perfect and the guacamole was to die for. The delivery and setup went very smoothly as well.
Bajas tacos catered an event in my home. The office staff kept in touch with me (via email & phone) prior to the event up to the day before the event. Also, the catering staff that served our event was wonderful. They were very friendly & cooked delicious food. Our guests were very impressed with the service & food as well. We will definitely be using them in the future & we will be recommending them to friends as well. Thanks Bajas tacos!
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!
I highly recommend them and will definately have them at my next party... The food was delicious, they took care of everything and the price was in my budget :)
We contacted Jesus to cater my wife's graduation party after getting a recommendation about Bajas Tacos from a friend, and after having to postpone from the original date (my wife got ill), the party went off on June 25. The food and service was fabulous. I received numerous comments from my guests: "Best tacos I have ever had!", "The food is excellent", Every thing about the food is great, so fresh", "Reminds me of my mom's cooking!", and on and on. Great service, good communications, wonderful food, reasonable cost all made for a great experience and a successful party. We will be using them again, and recommending them to everyone.
Real good Mexican food. They even let me plus 3 do a free tasting. Awesome service. Reasonably priced. Thanks!
Bajas Tacos does an excellent job! I've used them for two events and both times have been a great success. The food is delicious and everyone is very professional. They bring everything with them and do a great job cleaning up. I would definitely recommend their services!
The folks at Bajas Tacos did an AMAZING job catering an event that I just had. They supplied street tacos for 80+ people and everything went perfect. They prepared all the ingredients on-site (including making the tortillas!) and cooked everything fresh right there. Everyone loved it! I recommend Jesus and the team at Bajas Tacos very much!
We used Baja's Tacos & Catering to cater for over 300 people at our Chili Cook Off in October 2009 and 2010. I have to say, these were the best tacos we have ever had. The food was fresh, tortillas were made on the spot. So far since the event, we have had multiple clients request our caterer's name. Great job!
The service amazing, everything fresh, great communication, I had the chance to taste their tacos before hiring. I book them for an end-of-season soccer party and it was a success for kids and adults everybody loved the food and I was congratulated for the choice. Thank you very much for your service we didn't have to worry about ANYTHING but enjoy the delicious tacos..will highly recommend them to anybody. Great food, great taste, everything fresh, hand made tortillas..will book my next party with them for sure
Baja's Tacos catered our tailgate party at Qualcomm Stadium... he made everything from SCRATCH, food was delicious and service was great. All of our friends were so happy with the food. The best part is my husband got to enjoy the tailgate, didn't have to worry about cooking for everyone, can't wait until next event!
I hired Baja's Tacos for my friends 40th birthday party. I really enjoyed how they prepare everything fresh on site from the tortillas to all the salsas they where made when they showed up. Everyone loved the food and we will hire them again without a doubt.
Baja Tacos and Catering were able to cater my sons 2ND Birthday. The service amazing, everything fresh They made everything from SCRATCH, food was delicious and service was great. All of our friends were so happy with the food. The best tacos we had ever had. I don't think you will find another service as amazing as this one. Jesus and his crew made it happed. Thank You!!! Lo mejor de comida y servicio lo tiene Baja's Catering altamente profesionales llegaron a tiempo. Todo fue un exito. Definitivamente los volveria a contratar y jamas pensaria contratar a otras personas despues de esta maravillosa expeeiencia.
Gracias Jesus y equipo de trabajo.
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.
A. As a customer I like honest Business, I think twice when some one wants to fool me, example: When someone offer me free things ( there are nothing free amigo ) I prefer they told me they going to give me a discount or betters price that tell me the give me somethig free. secrets in authentic mexican food? there are not secrets recipes, old moms never write a recipe with exact number of ingredients, we call SAZON and is in the hand and heart of every cooker, every one has its own style and SAZON depending how much they enjoy and love to cook. And we really love it.
A. Date of event, How many guest will attend. What time do they want food ready to serve, where the event will take place. what type of food or tacos they want for their event, and the most important, what are their expectations about my services in order to fulfil them.
A. 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.
A. 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.
A. How long we have been in business? ( 5 years ) how long do we serve? ( 3-5 hors depending head count ) How is the way we serve? ( Buffet Style ) How is the way we charge per person or per event? ( depending head count ) what we guarantee? ( freshness, quality, and service )
A. To be honest there are some people in the states that does not notice the difference between a bottled commercial salsa and an artesanal salsa, they always said deliscious because they are educated and descent people, but work for picky people or old abuelitas that really knows a great salsa, guacamole or any mexican food tastes it is a challenge, I remember one old style abuelita that was a little upset because she want to cook for her daughter-in-law party, - ( We know that because after she aprove the food quality and flavor we prepared she start talking with us about how good cooker she was )- because she likes only Authentic home made food, all the food preparation she was with her inquisitive eyes on us like checking every movement, after start serving we was waiting that she try our food and we was really anxious about her comments, We really feel a great relief when she smiled and have a great smile for us in that moment I realize that she aproved us. She told us later that she have tried many tacos in friends and family parties but she always dissapointed about quality and flavor, but our was really good and like home made
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.
