3 Reasons South of the Border Food Trucks are a Great Idea for Your May Event
Event planners have a lot on their plates (pun intended), like what to feed your hungry guests. If you’re deep in the throes of planning your upcoming May event, Mexican food is a terrific catering option. Don’t take our word for it, see for yourself!
1. Diverse Food Needs
Between diet trends, food allergies, and general dietary restrictions, it can be a challenge to accommodate everyone. With vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free options, Mexican food trucks are a great way to satisfy diverse needs while staying on budget. This article from Healthline does a great job at detailing the 10 most common dietary restrictions you should be familiar with when catering for a group. For more on accommodating dietary restrictions at your event, see our previous article here.
2. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo!
Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day, though that’s a common misconception (Independence Day is actually on September 16th, during Hispanic Heritage Month). Cinco de Mayo, which commemorates the Mexican army’s triumph over France in the Battle of Puebla in the Franco-Mexican War, is not a widely celebrated holiday in Mexico, but here in the U.S., we can’t get enough of this celebration of Hispanic food and culture. The holiday creates a boon for Latin-owned businesses throughout the entire month.
3. There are so many delicious options!
It’s a scientifically proven fact that nobody ever had a bad time while eating tacos. Maybe it’s the margaritas they drink to wash them down, but we’re just guessing here. Whether you’re looking for fusion, authentic street food, or recipes taken straight out of mom’s kitchen, Simply Food Trucks works with an amazing collection of food trucks, and we take care of all of the details so that you don’t have to!
Here are just a few of the South of the Border food trucks we can book for your next event:
Tres Jardines - This family-run, second-generation food truck business has adapted Mom’s recipes from her original food truck. Best sellers include steak, chicken and barbacoa tacos. Offering flour and corn tortillas, fresh produce and sauces that don’t contain any meat, dairy, or gluten, Tres Jardines is a great choice for anyone looking to customize their meal to suit their diet.
Tacos and Tequilas - You could say tacos and tequila run in Diego Valasquez’s blood; his family owns La Parilla, a local chain with over twenty locations throughout the state. Now Diego runs the Tacos and Tequilas food truck, plus 4 brick and mortar locations of his elevated Mexican food concept.
Everything is fresh and made daily from scratch. Favorites include traditional taquitos and modern-day takes on skinny tacos, with plenty of vegetarian options. Tacos and Tequilas also operates several brick and mortar restaurants.
Auggie’s Lucky Tacos – A family-owned food truck bringing West Coast flavor to the streets of Georgia. Their giant Cali-Burrito is stuffed with fries, just as it should be, and the menu boasts a churro sundae and horchata. Other favorites include tacos, quesadillas, and burritos.
The Queso Truck – From the people who brought you the popular Yumbii food truck and restaurant, The Queso Shop Food Truck delivers bold flavors. Menu items include their signature queso, tacos, nachos and quesadillas, not to mention specialty loaded tater tots.
