About

Rafael was recommended to us by a co-worker and after looking into several catering options, we decided on Don Jorge Cater & Tacos. In our experience, Don Jorge Cater & Tacos offered very delicious and a very affordable (and non-inflated) price point. Additionally, the service was very friendly and accommodating not only to me, but my guests as well. Most importantly though, it's all about the food. Personally speaking, I'm a bit of a Mexican food addict, and the food at our party easily satisfied my appetite. In particular, I thought the carne asada and chicken tacos were excellent (be sure to pile on the guacamole). I should also note, I received several compliments on the food from my guests. So, thanks and compliments to Don Jorge Cater and Tacos. I would not hesitate to book you guys again for my next party/event.

They catered my sons Graduation and 18th birthday, pluss leaving for Marine bootcamp. Food was fresh, hot and very good. I didn't have to worry about any of the hot food. They set up and cleaned it all up. Food was very tastey. With them catering the party I could enjoy my party. I will tell my friends about them. Thank you very much.

About

Debra was an amazing caterer to work with! She was super responsive and flexible when ironing out the details for the appetizers for my son's wedding reception. She was professional and arrived on time. She even went way beyond the contract and my expectations by staying during the event to keep the table refreshed! The guests loved all the offerings and commented on how nice it all looked? I would hardly recommend Debra and Detail Custom Catering!

About

We barbecue all of our meats in our ole hickory smoker with select cooking woods after they have been seasoned with our specialty Cali dry rub. Passionate about remaining true to barbecue tradition, we have developed our menus for our low-n-slow Cali BBQ restaurant and catering truck to offer only the highest-quality BBQ in San Diego. Since we smoke the traditional way, “low-n-slow"‚ there are times that we run out due to increased cravings for great-tasting barbecue. We know that those of you who understand the true art of barbecue realize that once we are out, we are out. We cannot smoke up another batch of great-tasting BBQ until the next day. A general rule of thumb for our smoked meats are as follows: * Pulled Pork - 14 hours * Pork Ribs - 6 hours * Chicken - 4 hours * Brisket - 12 plus hours * Tri-Tip - 2 hours Cali comfort catering and banquet services: In addition to our low-slow Cali BBQ catering services, we offer comfort menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner events. Our guests love to rent out the various rooms in our restaurant to host their banquets and events. We can cater your next golf tournament, wedding reception, banquet, fantasy football draft party, tailgate party, birthday, corporate event or memorial. We offer affordable pricing, and we look forward to working with you in the future.
