10. Alvaro's Tacos

"At first I was a little scared only because this was my first catered event. I didn't know if the tacos would be bland, flavorless, undercooked and all those things that come across your mind with the stress of pleasing everyone.
I usually do the cooking myself for any gathering or event.
That being the case, I miss out on some of the fun.
For the first time I wanted to be involved in the party and not slave away on a grill or kitchen. Alvaro reached out to me within days of joining thumbtack.
I loved that idea...Tacos, you can't go wrong with tacos!
Specially when they're cooked by someone who's been in the business for a very long time and has many great reviews of happy customers/consumers under him.
I was not disappointed at all. In fact I was taken back. He was very curtious, professional and met my needs.
He arrived at my party 2 hours early with his daughter ( I love that his daughter was his assistant and a great one I'll add) to prep his station and cook everything. They were very professional and welcoming to my guests.
The pricing was fair and the package I got was magnificent. Nothing beats fresh and quality. His meat was very tender and delicious. I was given authentic Mexican tacos! Not the Americanized and bland stuff I've tasted at parties. This wasn't Chipotle, Taco Bell or Del Taco. This was your authentic carne asada, pollo y al pastor. Everyone at my event enjoyed the food. He packaged my left overs in nice seperate containers for me to enjoy after he left. I highly recommend him, my family member was quick to hire him for her graduation party coming in May. If you have a party to host and want to trust that the food is gonna be taken care of so you can relax and enjoy the party hire Alvaro.
Alvaro should open a local or get a food truck. I would gladly follow him around for some tacos.
Thanks for the delicious food Alvaro. See you in May"
