    Great food and service. Joe was very easy to work with. Carlos was very nice and kept our guests full. Joe's wife even came to the rescue to bring our horchata drink. I would definitely have food & spoon food service cater my event again. All of our guests raved about the food. When there's good food that means it's a good party!!!

    Joe and his team catered our wedding last month, and people are still talking about the tacos! Joe was very accommodating, making sure there was something to eat for all ages and for every dietary restriction. He made the tacos on-site so they were fresh and extra delicious. There were a variety of delicious appetizers, meats, and toppings. For a small extra fee, Joe and his team even provided beverage pouring service and clean-up of the rented dishes after the meal. All the caterers were professionally dressed and clearly held themselves to high standards. They even prepared special plates for my husband and me so we could eat in the kitchen before officially entering the reception. Joe and his team were flexible, knowledgable, fun, kind, and talented. Thank you for making our wedding reception so delicious and memorable!

    Thank you to Joe and his crew for hosting my daughter's 3rd birthday party! I called the week of as my guest list was growing and the thought of picking up food and storing it was beginning to stress me out. Luckily I was able to book Fork and Spoon last minute and everyone loved the food. The way F and S works is that everything is included: 5 proteins including a vegan option, rice beans, plates n even a drink is included into the per person cost,$12. Most places I called charged extra for all that. They generally have a 40 person minimum but since they had a opening last minute they let us slide w 30ppl. My little girl loved the rice n beans. Carnitas and fish were the first to go, the pork w pineapples were a hit too. Having someone make you a hot made to order meal is a much taster option. Head up you will need to have a table to set the toppings, chips n drink area. Yummy, cheap and easy! Book them!

    This review is long overdue, but I can not thank Joe & his team enough for making my Coco Fiesta a hit @ Epic Apartments! They handled serving 300 residents with no issues! I still get raves about how awesome their food was from residents whom are vegetarian!! We will continue using Fork & Spoon for more events in the near future! Thank you so much guys!

    We've used Joe for graduation parties a couple of times now and he and his crew are awesome. The food is great, large selection of meats, fish and salsas, plus they set up everything and clean up everything. It is really nice to not have to worry about that when hosting a large party. They are also very reliable and on time and great follow up. I would highly recommend them and use them again in a heartbeat!

    OMG I do not eat meat so thought beans and rice were my only option but I was sooo wrong! He made a vegetarian taco filling with butternut squash and some other DELICIOUS GOODNESS in it!!! I felt sorry for the rest of the party that ate the meat...kidding! Everyone raved over the meats, beans, rice and amazing toppings set off the taco bar! Hire them for your next party, your guests will LOVE IT!!!!!

    We used Fork & Spoon for a big birthday event with 150-200 people. Ordering process was super easy. Food was SO good! And service from Joe and his staff were amazing. They even packed all the leftovers nicely for us. There's plenty of things to stress on when throwing a big party... food should not be one of those things to worry about when you know that the food you will serve your guest is on point! Thank you Joe.

    Taco Joe is amazing! We first found him for our backyard wedding in 2013, and had a fantastic experience with his taco bar. He supplied dinner, dessert, and passed appetizers. All for a reasonable price! People to this day still talk about how good the food was at our wedding. We have also used his services for my son's first birthday, my sister in laws engagement party and my mother's 60th birthday party. The food is always good and his team is friendly. We will continue to use his services for big events! Thank you for everything, you've made each of our family parties a big success!

    I recently had a tasting with Joe when deciding on caterers for my wedding. His tacos were delicious, and his service was kind and attentive. He clearly takes pride in his work, which is beautiful to see. I look forward to have him cater our wedding!

    My godson bday party creeped up on too fast, we had no idea what we wanted to make and it was weeks away. We new we wanted to enjoy the party and not have to deal with cooking. I was told about how great fork and spoon was . We decided to give them a call . Greatest decision ever!. They very accommodating to my last minute needs, my big guest list and overall all they cared. We went with tacos . It was full service they came in with different types of meats , all types of different salsas, condiments ,cilantro and onion . On the side there was rice and beans Was really surprised about that ,loved it. All my guest were in love with how amazing the tacos tasted. I did share the info. Overall I hire them again and recommend it to all my friends and anyone who need catering. Thank you fork and spoon.

    I will always use Fork and Spoon! I have booked them for several events now and they are always amazing! Joe and his crew are professional, friendly and always on time. They provide a wide array of delicious food and the set up is spectacular. Joe is so wonderful to work with from beginning to end. He's responsive and easy to get in touch with, and never misses a detail. From my daughter's 16th birthday party to graduation party, each event has been a huge success thanks to Fork and Spoon! Looking forward to booking them again!

    Joe did a party for us last August. Food was great, Joe's service was impeccable.

    We're having him back for a repeat performance in July.

  • *****

    Amazing food and service! Joe and his assistant were very professional and worked within our budget. Set up was prompt, the food was fresh and fantastic! We had rave reviews from all of the participants at our meeting. Each of the meat options, sides, and salsas were great.

    Our group works with different catering services each month, but Dominguez Catering has set a new - very high - standard.

    Great food, great value, great people!

    I hired Fork and Spoon (Joe the Taco Truck guy) for my daughter's college graduation party last summer and then hired them again for my husband's surprise birthday party. The fact that I hired them twice says a lot. They were referred to me by a friend originally and did such a fabulous job, that I really couldn't stop thinking about the food for weeks. We had some leftovers, but they didn't last long at all, so this time I was sure to order more. The ordering process was super easy and Joe did everything! He made it all so simple, took charge of where best to set up, had everything well presented (he includes plates, utensils, napkins, is very friendly, and even helps with putting all left overs away so that I could focus on my guests. Now I just need to plan another party so I can hire them again!

  • *****

    Absolutely terrific! Did a party for us yesterday. Joe was prompt (arrived very early), friendly and made excellent food. Everything was fresh, nicely presented and tasted great. We will definitely have him cater our future events. I've had many bad experiences with caterers, do it was nice to have a reliable caterer with great food

    Absolutely fantastic worry free catering! I was hosting a surprise birthday party for my son's 30th. My son LOVES Tacos so I was looking for a Taco Truck. Every place I tried, were dreadfully expensive and provided very little. This small business owner was referred to me by a colleague at work. The wife & son were at our house a few minutes before their scheduled time and although it was wet & rainy, they came prepared with their own canopy, stove, grill, utinsils, plates & glasses...we did not have to do a thing!! They were fantastic! The food (Tacos with choice of five meats, quesadias, Nachos + all the trimmings, rice water & strawberry??) was delicious and fresh because they prepared everything in our back yard and took individual orders from our guests.

    Our guests were very impressed and many took their business card! They have already done another party for my cousin where they did an equally great job and were asked for their business card. Our company plans on using them for our next outdoor company event. VERY Inexpensive too! I will definitely use them again.

    I hired Ford and Spoon FS after a recommendation from a friend since I was looking for someone to do a taco bar for my husband's birthday party. It was fun to have them grill the meat right there and then make personalized tacos for each guest. The tacos were delicious! They also brought drinks and all the toppings for the tacos and set them out nicely on a table. I didn't give them 5 stars only because they also offered nachos and quesadillas, but that wasn't on the paper they had out for the guests to choose from so no one really knew they could order those options. Also guests had to ask for cheese because the cook had it behind the grill rather than out on the table. It was nice after everyone ate, they asked for bowls for the leftovers so we could keep them.

  • *****

    Joe: Everything was great! We had a lot of compliments on the food. Your Staff (Edith and Tony) were wonderful. Very reasonable pricing for great food! Thank you!

    I used fork and spoon for their taco truck services for my daughters 1st bday party. This was my 1st time using these guys and I took a chance based on the 2 reviews posted below :/ I must say, I'm glad I did. I live in the Tracy area and there are not too many taco truck caterers in the area. These guys are based out of Milpitas and serve the Tracy for an additional fee that is pretty fair. They offer a lot on their menu for what it's priced at which pushed me more towards them than other vendors I came across. If I didn't get a response back w/ in the day that I called and left a message I would of moved on w/ another vendor. I got a call back w/in an hour and was sent all the info/contract that very day. I confirmed everything w/ the owner Joe a month before my event. The week of party, It took me a couple of days to get a response from him but he called back to reconfirm things. The day came and I thought they were running late but the food ended up being ready at the time I asked. That's the only reason why I didn't give 5 stars, because the heart skip :) The Food was great! The set up was great! My guests enjoyed their food and service. If there is food left over, they ask if you want to keep it. I would def go w/ these guys again!

    I just attended an event they catered. The food was superb, the service excellent and the chef polite and friendly. I got seconds, something I usually don't do. They are 100% marvelous.

    I would have written this review ages ago if I had known that Joe Dominguez and Fork and Spoon Food Services actually had a yelp page. Joe catered my wedding, my friends' wedding, my husband's graduation (and a couple of other friends' graduation) celebration, not to mention I have used him for work events. My friends and I fondly refer to him as Taco Joe, although he does other types of cuisines as well. However I LOVE his tacos (and his churros filled with caheta--yum!)--and honestly everyone who tries them wants to book Joe for their event. People have told me the food at our wedding was some of the best they have ever had (much yummier than your typical dry chicken and rice dish), which made me so happy. Joe has never let me down when it comes to his food and service--and you honestly cannot beat his prices. I cannot recommend him enough!

  • *****

    We used Joe for a company event and it was a big hit. The taco bar was amazing and his customer service was great. We really enjoyed the fact we could custom order our tacos with all the fixing. If anyone is looking for a great cater, I would strongly recommend Joe.

  • *****

    Amazing! Great Company that can cater to any event!! First they attended an open house at the school! What a successful night. Parents and family members were able to enjoy great food while looking at their children's class work. We also had them help celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week and had them come back and serve to the teachers and staff! The food was yummy! There were tons of salsas, and toppings for the tacos. They have also catered at my son's birthday parties. They can do it all. They were on time, excellent customer service and great prices. Made each or our events a hit! Thank you Joe and Team!

    Let me start off by saying I'm not one to write reviews for any type of restaurant or business for that matter. But after the experience i had with this business i just felt the need to voice my opinion. About a month i booked "Fork & Spoon" for a last minute event which i only had 2 weeks to put together. I was looking for someone to do tacos, cuz let's face it, you can never go wrong with tacos, & if for any reason anyone at your party has a problem with you serving tacos then i suggest you get new friends. So i explained to him what i wanted as far as food and asked if he could do something like nachos for the kids that were attending. The day of the party came & to be quite honest i wasn't sure what to expect as far as food quality and taste. But when he finished setting up let me tell ypubi was blown away at how cute everything was set up. After all they do say you eat with your eyes first. And let me tell you my eyes were definitely loving what they saw. Joe & his lovely wife mina were more than some of the sweetest people i have ever done business with. They way they set everything up just goes to show they put their heart into their business. Just the salsas had me drooling when i first saw them. The variety of meats was awesome and for my non meat eater friends they were also quite impressed with the options that were given. Aside from the tacos he also made us some quesadillas & nachos with different meats on them. I was so full at the end of the night but those tacos gave me life i just couldn't say no. Oh and don't even get me started on the "aguad frescas" that he made for us. Horchata, agua de melon & fresa. Fresh!!!! People....and oh so delicious. I definitely recommend hiring Joe for your next event trust me when i say you will not be dissapointed

    I had Joe do a taco bar for my daughter's 1st birthday and it was a big success. Great food and great service! Highly recommended to everyone.

  • *****

    As part of my 25th Stanford reunion a few weeks ago, my wife and I attended a house party near the campus that Joe catered. Menu was pretty straightforward - a taco bar - but the food was fresh and delicious and offered enough variety to put Chipotle and Qdoba to shame. The real standout, though, was Joe's engaging personality and comfort level with his customers. If I lived out there, I'd use his business all the time....

  • *****

    Joe catered our Companies work Quarterly meeting and the food was amazing! Service made the experience even better! All of our employees left satisfied and full!! The quality of the food and presentation made it a great experience! We couldn't be more happy!!

  • *****

    I contacted Joe a two weeks before my event, and from the beginning, he was helpful, accommodating and friendly. We had a few changes to our headcount, and there was never an issue. The day of our party, Jorge arrived on time, was super friendly, and everything was seamless and delicious. I will absolutely use Fork & Spoon again, and would recommend them as well!

  • *****

    We had hired Joe tacos catering services for a 30th birthday party, i was very Impress with the food and the customer service. They offered a verity of meats and side dishes to accommodate everyone. Very happy and recommend him for gatherings and events.

    I was trying to find a Taco Service for my Son's 1st Birthday that was going to be in a week, but I was having no luck. My friends and family gave me several numbers to call. First one I called: She was booked. Second, third, fourth and fifth one I called: Never got a call me back. My Aunt texted me and gave me Joes number and I texted him and 30 minutes later, we got Joe's Taco Service BOOKED. He was very helpful and assured me he will be there. The gentleman that was cooking for our event, showed up the time they told me, and had the food was ready for all my guest who were arriving. Nobody waiting around to eat. My guests were pleased with the food and they all wanted his number. I'm definitely a fan and recommend Joe's Taco Service!!

  • *****

    Joe did an event with us last week on the UC Berkeley campus and the attendees raved about his services. Street tacos, fresh homemade salsas, and 5 types of meat! Our attendees were very happy and we will definitely use him again. Joe was friendly and arrived early to setup his grill and spread. He also mentioned he does other catering (not just tacos) so I'll have to look into that for future events!

  • *****

    Hands down best caterer on the area. I have used Joe for many of my large events and he has always done an amazing job!! Food and service is outstanding. I highly recommend him to all my friends, family and colleagues.

  • *****

    Great food and great service. I never go hungry when he comes to Economy Lumber to host a taco Friday for us

  • *****

    We attended a wonderful birthday party today and the food was provided by Fork & Spoon/Joe. Let me preface this by saying we were late and it was raining. I never got to try the chicken-which I heard was amazing. My husband doesn't eat red meat, so the fish and veg option were so appreciated/creative and SO delicious. I had Carnitas and Pastor-seriously- at a taco bar??? it was so good! every stitch of food was eaten by the crowd and Joe was very professional and fun to talk to. I will definately call Joe next time I have a party.

  • *****

    Taco Man! I cant believe I haven't written him a review before. He has catered 3-4 of my sorority events at my school, my dad's 50th birthday party, two of my friend's graduation parties, and most recently a party I attended in Fremont. Every time he comes, he has a huge spread, chips, a nice salsa selection, toppings, and you get a great selection of meat. His food is always AWESOME, and he comes with plenty of food. They are all so friendly and happy to make whatever we want. (His quesadillas are the best!). He is reasonably priced as well!

  • *****

    Amazing Service, Great Staff went above and beyond my expectations, met my every need. I had him cater my daughter's birthday and let me tell you Fork and Spoons Food was great, splendid I may say, The fresh made drinks were refreshing and the large variety of topping were amazing, but what tops it was the Tacos itself Joe will not let you down, I do recommend due to his busy schedule you reserve him on time. Keep up the delicious food coming.

    I have probably eaten at a dozen meals catered by Joe Dominquez, and the quality of his food, his prices and his customer service cannot be touched by the other catering I've encountered in the Bay Area. It may seem a bit odd to have a genuine taco bar as the central meal at a wedding, but I have never enjoyed a better dinner at a formal event. After my wedding meal was catered by Joe, a number of friends reached out for Joe's information to have their own weddings catered by him. He has catered friends' birthday, anniversary, graduation, and even Oscar parties, and his food has always been consistently great with a staff that was never less than friendly, professional and responsive to the needs of the attendees. While his Mexican and Salvadoran cuisine is my favorite, his other food is also outstanding. In an area where catering expenses have blown sky high, Joe's prices aren't just fair - they are the best bang for your buck I've seen in the region. We were able to avoid cutting corners on a number of options for our wedding by using Joe's company, but nobody thought for a second that we served the meal for such a small budget. His agua frescas options are excellent, and for dessert, don't forget to order the churros filled with cajeta - you won't regret it!

    FYI - due to his busy schedule and small staff, it can be tough to get a call back right away, so try not to be impatient or make a last minute request. I promise he always calls back, but it might take a couple of days. Trust me - your patience will be rewarded!

    I recently had the pleasure to book fork and spoon for one of my events (birthday). Joe Dominguez and Mina Dominguez catered all my needs, went above and beyond, great customer service. Food was excellent, grade A quality. Prices were reasonable/fair. The catering set up was fantastic, great salsa selections and sides, not to mention he does more than tacos....(thumbs up). Overall it was a great experience, i will definitely trust them for all my future catering needs. Trust me, this company will speak for it self

  • *****

    We hired Joe's tacos catering service for our wedding. The food was very good. Everyone loved it, even our guests were interested in hiring Joe for their own events. The crew was friendly, professional, and great service. They showed up on time and were ready to serve in about 20 minutes. Strongly recommend for anyone looking to serve tacos and more for their parties.

  • *****

    Delicious! Joe hosted taco Tuesday's for teachers and staff today. My favorite was the carne with chorizo on top. All other items were amazing also.

  • *****

    Joe and his team never disappoint! Great food, great service! Party was a blast and joe's taco service was indeed a highlight!

  • *****

    I have had Joe and his crew cater a couple of events now and have been very pleased each time. This last event was a 50th anniversary party with 80+ guests ... the food was perfect! Fork & Spoon Services are the absolute best when it comes to serving up a fresh taco bar. Joe goes above and beyond with the variety of meats offered and they bring ALL of the toppings as well as yummy chips and sides. They set up a nice grill and serve everything hot. The portions have always been more than generous and they will leave the left-overs should there be any! Joe is also very accommodating with special requests. The food is fresh, creative and most importantly - delicious!

  • *****

    Joe and his crew did a super job for our party last Saturday. Not only was the food excellent, but Jorge and Junior were great to our guests as well. These guys are number one in our book and will use them again without hesitation.

  • *****

    Joe and his crew are fantastic, very professional, courteous and friendly. The food is out of this world yummy. I would absolutely without hesitation call Joe again for another party, everything went impeccably thanks to Joe and the guys.

  • *****

    We just had fork & spoon's tacos for our work training even with our student workers. Everyone loved the tacos! They had an assortment of meats, and a spicy vegan option. The strawberry lemon aid was delicious with real mulled strawberries in it. I highly recommend Joe and his team! They do many other types of food, but the tacos are always a hit!

  • *****

    Great food and service. Servers were polite and friendly! Many of our guests came up to us to say how amazing everything tasted! I would use them again and recommend them to our friends.

  • *****

    My husband and I have used Fork and Spoon for several of our events and they never disappoint! The food is always fresh and delicious. Plus the staff is very curious and easy to work with. We will definitely be using them again!

  • *****

    Joe Dominguez (Owner) of Fork and Spoon did a fantastic catering job event for me last March. I had well over 70 people, and the food was absolutely delicious. Joe and crew provided an enormous assortment of taco meat selections with all the toppings and a superb shrimp a la diabla. My guests raved about the food, drinks, and churros all evening long. Joe is reliable, timely, easy to work with, and a true professional. We will be using his services for many years to come.

  • *****

    I needed a cater on very short notice and Fork and Spoon were able to help with my event. They arrived early to set up and everything was perfect my my guest arrived. They saved the day. They had everything I needed for my event. The food was good and everyone enjoyed the tacos. The server was very polite. I would use them again.

  • *****

    We can't thank Joe, his team & Mina enough! Without their help, we wouldn't be able to attend our son's graduation ceremony in Berkeley to hosting a grad/21st birthday party for him. I was referred a few other Taco Caterers but ultimately worked with Joe. I was confident that Joe would provide amazing food and excellent service. Joe's catering service stood out because our guest had the options to have made to order tacos, quesadillas, and loaded nachos.

    Joe's team delivered above and beyond! The two nicest cooks came dressed as chefs. They frequently asked our guest, if they would like to order. Our guest was absolutely happy and raving about the food. Oh, Joe's green salsa is the bomb. Joe allowed me to pick six types of meat, carne asada, fish, pollo, al pastor, chorizo, carnitas and he surprised me with lengua! Our guest enjoyed 3 barrels of aqua frescas.

    We are truly thankful for Joe & Mina! They operate a passionate, friendly, experience & quality catering business! I was so impressed when Joe personally delivered tacos for our family to try but the day of the big party of 100+ guest he executed it beautifully. Joe and his team ROCKS!

  • *****

    Last weekend was the 5th time we had Joe and crew. We have had groups of 40 -100plus. Everyone was full and happy. On time and professional. The food was delicious! They were friendly with our guests. They set up before everyone arrived, and exited quickly and quietly. I will use them next time we have an event.

  • *****

    We had our first block party, and Joe came recommended by a couple of friends. We were so happy! Professional, friendly, and...delicious food! We will definitely be booking them again!!
    Only change is...we will have to add the churros and some of his yummy sounding appetizers too! Thank you for helping to make our first block party a success!

  • *****

    These guys are amazing. They were all set up in plenty of time before our party started. The food was amazing and everyone had plenty to eat. They supply everything you need and the price is great. Will definitely use them again for our next party. Everyone loves tacos, especially these!

  • *****

    We had Fork & Spoon cater a large picnic for 100+ people. We got a taco truck, watermelon slices, and drinks for a very reasonable price! Joe was so easy to work with and he made the whole process run very smoothly. Everyone from Fork & Spoon was punctual, helpful, SUPER-professional, and the food and presentation were outstanding - everyone were so pleased and
    appreciative! We will *most definitely* be using Fork and Spoon again.

  • *****

    Joe and team have done an awesome job on two different occasions. Both times we had their taco bar and found the food and service awesome. Very friendly and professional. I comfortably recommend them.

  • *****

    Fork & Spoon was the best tacos I've had since back in 'Nam. Joe was awesome and accommodating to all our needs. Really great food & really good service. He's won our business for this coming summer.

  • *****

    Joe and Mina are awesome!! They came out to my house to cater a birthday party for 35 today! They brought the grill to my backyard (party location) the day before the event. They made delicious tacos, were prompt, friendly and professional. All of my guests loved the food. The prices are awesome too! You really get a lot for your money. We had five kinds of meat for the tacos, rice, beans, chips, salsas, guacamole, fresh watermelon juice, and more!! I look forward to using them again!

  • *****

    This was my first time having Fork and Spoon cater and it won't be my last! Joe was quick to respond to my emails. I even called to clarify everything and he was patient with me. On the day of my party, he came early to set everything up and began serving food on time. I had a party of 35 people and we had more than enough food. Everyone LOVED the food and the setup!! Highly suggest to anyone who loves good and affordable food!

  • *****

    Had a taste of Joe's tacos at an event last weekend and it was so good. Seriously, the fish tacos were like the best ever. I had to know more, and apparently he doesn't use tilapia like most taco places, and he cooks it carefully in the oven. You could totally tell that it was something special. Strongly considering him for the next event I throw.

  • *****

    We have used joes service many times. His food is great. Best tacos ever. And u can't bet the price. He supply everything u need. I love them. He is always on time and very professional.

    I would highly recommended them. U can't go wrong.
