We’re seeing formal, traditional seated dinners less and less at weddings these days. Many couples are instead opting for buffets or rounds of appetizers. We love to see this because it encourages mixing and mingling and also can save you a ton of money! Our favorite iteration of this trend? Tacos. Who doesn’t love tacos? And when you can get a killer spread likes the ones from Taco Del Mar, every single one of your guests will be happy. They’ve got something for everyone! We sat down with Taco Del Mar to learn more about their catering options for your big day.

Our food comes directly from our store menu. Its Mexican cuisine, but with an American flare. We have Taco, Nacho, Enchilada, Taco Salad, and Baja Bowl bars. We also make a great dip for chips and fun bullet burritos for snacking. All the bars can be inter-mixed to create variety.
