Hi- I'm hosting a birthday party for my husband on the beach in South Oceanside/ Carlsbad (North San Diego County). His favorites are BBQ (ribs, pulled pork, etc.) or Mexican (carne asada, carnitas, fish tacos, etc.) I would like for them to set-up and cook, not just deliver. I'm expecting 50-60 people. Does anyone have experience with great BBQ or taco caterers at a reasonable price ?
My total food budget (including service, tax, etc.) is about $1300. I did get a quote from Rick's Secret Spot in San Clemente, am currently getting one from Abbey's Real Texan BBQ. I looked into El Callejon and it looks like its even more expensive ($24/pp before service).
