GOODFELLAS CATERING (909) 333-5527 | INFO@GOODFELLASTACOS.COM LOS ANGELES | ORANGE COUNTY | INLAND EMPIRE | PALM SPRINGS GoodFellas Catering 2016 Menu


DETAILS BEFORE WE GET STARTED: WEDDINGS: While the majority of our business does come from weddings our packages are not designed to accommodate weddings but to accommodate casual outdoor catering. What we can do and what we offer is customization. Most weddings need more time than what we offer and we encourage you to speak to your event coordinator for more details. We even offer appetizers in addition to any package.

STAFFING: All events come with Two Staff members and they can handle events up to 80-100 people. The menu will determine if more staff is needed. Some events may come with a third staff member for training purposes. Additional staff members may be required for your event and can be purchased at an additional cost. Having an additional buffet line will require a second team to serve and cook.

VENUES: If your having your event at a Park, Hall, Hotel, County or City Owned Location you can ease your mind, we are one of the few taco catering companies that has a business license as well as insurance. Our operations manager will work out all of the details with the venue directly so you don’t have to be the middle man.

GRATUITY: Gratuities are within the customers discretion. The Service Fee is in no way considered a tip or gratuity.

SERVICE FEE 5%: It covers all of the back end costs that go into the event aside from the food itself. The service charge helps cover the costs of doing business: office staff, utilities, office supplies, day to day operations, etc. We do not charge for insurance certificates, business license or permits etc. This fee offsets all of these costs to insure our clients aren’t worrying about asking for help in these areas, as many of our clients have had, or heard of others’ experience in which they are billed for these things. We like to insure that the planning process is as easy as possible with nothing to worry about once you have us on board. Is this a gratuity? The answer is no.

TRAVEL FEE: To help offset the cost of traveling a travel fee will added to your invoice for certain areas Palm Springs - Indio Areas 75.00 - 150.00 Some San Bernardino Areas 25.00 - 75.00 South Orange County / West Los Angeles 25.00 -75.00 Talk to your Event Coordinator to get the exact amount, Not all areas will be charged.

While we do have many employees we are in high demand and take parties based on who pays their booking fee.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS HOW MANY TACOS PER GUEST? We guarantee a minimum of 3 Large Size Tacos per guest. If we use a small street taco we guarantee a minimum of 5 tacos per guest. However that’s only our guarantee, in most cases there is enough for guests to eat about 5/6 while others eat only 2/3. Most events have meat left over. Just remember if you under order we are not held liable for running out of food! DO YOU GUYS COOK ON LOCATION? Yes, however we have accommodated various requests to fit the needs of the event. Discuss more with your event coordinator.. HOW MUCH SPACE DO YOU NEED? We need enough room to setup 2 tables which are 5 feet in length and one or two taco carts which are 4 feet in length. Depending on the size of your event and the package you order we could take a small grill or a large grill or even 2 grills. We will also need room behind the tables and grill for our employees to serve food. Roughly a 20x10 foot area will work. DO YOU NEED ANY ELECTRICAL OUTLETS? Electrical outlets are not necessary unless you are ordering nachos. If you do have electricity available we can bring our electric warmer to keep rice and beans in. DO THE COOKS/EMPLOYEES WEAR UNIFORM? Yes, on most occasions they will come in matching uniforms if you have a special color you are decorating maybe we can match it for you. We have lots of colors for uniforms, just let your event coordinator know what colors you would like and we will do our best to fulfill your request. DO YOU HAVE A CATERER’S PERMIT OR BUSINESS LICENSE? We get asked this a lot and the honest truth is WHAT IS A CATERERS PERMIT?? While we are not entirely sure where that term came from we can assure you that it does not exist! We do have a business license & health permit through Ideal Foods Commissary. We are also serve safe certified with a manager’s certification. Any other permits that need to be obtained would have to be done by the client. An example would be for certain cities, parks, beaches, or special venues. DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE? Yes, we have a $1 million insurance policy with a $2 million aggregate. LEFT OVER’S? It is the customer’s responsibility to provide “to go” or “leftover” containers. For a nominal fee of $15.00, GoodFellas Taco Catering can provide containers for leftovers on the day of the event.

We do work on Holidays, this includes all national holidays and celebrated days such as Valentines Day, Halloween Etc. Because these are predetermined dates some people like to schedule or book a year out so that they ensure the date. There is an additional charge of 35% added to your invoice.

It is a chance for you to get to know us and for you to feel confident we are the right company for you. 5. We book tastings based on the time you would like us to arrive to your location. From there it can take us anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes to setup and cook. The factors that determine this are the menu as well as how difficult it is to navigate throughout your yard. 6. Portions – Tastings are exactly what they say they are. It is a chance for you to try our food and make sure it is to your liking. There isn’t going to be a lot of food there. 7. If you are adding appetizers to your tasting our event coordinator does have to approve them with our operations manager prior to scheduling. 8. Tastings should be scheduled in advance by at least 2 weeks.
