Frequently Asked Questions
1.What is your price per head?
We do not charge on a "price per head" basis as we are never sure what types of food people want until we are there. We ask you to give us a budget, and we can tell you what kinds of things would be served that would fit that budget. For example, if you want everyone to have tenderloin, it would be significantly higher price then if you want a taco bar. Most people go with a variety of different meats, we just ask a ballpark range of what percentage of each staple you would prefer for example, 40% beef, 20% chicken, 10% pork, 10% fish, 10% vegan, 10% chef choice.
2. What if everyone wants the most expensive stuff on the menu and we are going over budget?
We keep track of every item that is served from the truck. We keep a tally and if it is getting to the point that you will soon go over budget, we will come to you and let you know and at that point you can tell us whether to continue at the current pace or not. We would typically tell guests that we are out of the more expensive items and will serve more of the less costly stuff - quite honestly, people have driven across the province for our "cheap tacos" so I doubt anyone would be displeased!).
3. What are all of the costs?
Costs are as follows:
The $850 is credited towards the food consumed. However, it is also our minimum charge. For example, if your event has 20 people attending, the minimum cost is still $850 + HST + gratuity + mileage (no extra staff required). However, 20 people at that price would allow us to be more gourmet and provide more expensive items (tenderloin vs tacos). If your event has 75 people and you want simply a taco bar with no extra sides, you may be able to only be charged the $850 + HST + gratuity + mileage based on how many people eat how many tacos! We can discuss options for your menu and group size in greater detail so there are no surprises.
5. What types of items do you serve?
We have done everything from tacos to frogs legs, so if you have any requests, let us know and we can tell you what we can do!
Here are a few of the more popular items we have done in the past, obviously depending on the type of event!
Most popular sides:
Cost saving sides: "World's Best Potatoe Salad", Macaroni salad
Standard sides: Ancient Grain Quinoa Salad, Gourmet Mac n' Cheese, Classic Caesar, Garden salad, Greek Salad
Premium sides: Seasonal and market priced
Signature desert - "Banoffee Bites" - based on an old English toffee pie recipe, includes plain naan (Indian flatbread) sliced into bite sized pieces, soaked in butter and brown sugar, grilled and topped with honey soaked bananas, whipped cream, drizzled with home made caramel. We can also do the same with honey soaked apples or fruit free, with drizzles including maple syrup or Nutella. Un - be - freakin - lievable!!!!
6. What EXACTLY is going to be on our menu for our event?
We have no clue. But seriously, we base our menu for each event on a number of considerations:
Using the above method of bringing out plates of each type of item, it takes on average 1 hour per 100 people. If people come to the window and order separately each time, it would be minimum 2 hours per 100 people, if not longer depending on the complexity of the chosen items that would be on the menu.
8. What about rain dates/cancellation policy?
We did a wedding last year in a drenching downpour, no power at the venue, and lighting had hit the building thus our generator was it! In other words, we work rain or shine! If there is a concern that the event could be cancelled last minute, you can purchase insurance for an extra $200 to be able to cancel within 48 hours. If no cancellation is requested and the weather doesn't cooperate, earthquakes, hurricanes happen, etc., as that we have had to hire staff, purchase and prepare all food, not book other events, etc., there will be no return of the deposit. However, you DO have 2 weeks before the scheduled event to cancel for a full refund of your $850.
Cancellation policy: Optional $200 cancellation fee covers if cancellation occurs up to 2 weeks previous to event, both $200 fee + $850 deposit will be refunded in full
After 2 weeks pre-event, cancellation would provide $850 deposit returned (we keep the $200 cancellation fee).
Any other questions, please let us know.
We look forward to hearing from you
