My fiance and I are big lovers of mexican food and thought it would be fun to have a mexican buffet for our food. Our wedding isn’t super formal but it also isn’t completely laid back. We would probably do a taco bar and then also have some type of vegetarian option. Or maybe taco’s and enchilada’s. Would you love it or hate it?

sounds good to me, but tacos can be rather messy (assuming hand held kind) maybe enchiladas and soft tacos that can be eaten with a knife and form while dressed nicely? or taco salad bar?

i would be totally there – as long as there are tables and chairs because i can be a messy eater with this stuff

I love mexican food, but I agree it is messy. Especially tacos. I honestly find enchillads a lot easier to eat (because they can easily be eaten with a fork- maybe that’s weird of me).
I think you could make it classy & have a lot of options. Fresh chips with homemade salsa(s) and guacamole, a nice tossed salad, some enchillads and maybe some kind of mexican pulled beef/pork, and a veggie. Yum.

This is what we’re doing! Ours is an outdoor, tented reception and it seemed appropriate to go with a more laid-back meal approach.
Here’s what we’re having:
Hard shell/soft shell/taco salad bowls
Shredded Chicken Chimichangas
Pico de Gallo
And then we’re going to provide a variety of dessert options besides just cake. Hopefully everyone will find something they like. If not…at least chips and salsa is better than dry chicken with cold green beans and flavorless rice pilaf! 🙂

@artichokey: exactly what I’m thinking! Just not a huge fan of the usual ‘chicken or beef’ options…seems so plain.

I went to a wedding that had fajitas option of chicken, beef, or all veggie. It was Fantastic!!

@Birdee106: I’m actually really pleased with ours. For starters, it’s SUPER CHEAP which is amazing. It’s coming from a restaurant that I like to eat at so I’m pretty confident it will be delicious!
We make our own salsa every year, so each table is going to have a quart sized jar of homemade salsa as a little personal touch. I think we’re also going to add a bottle of tabasco to the tables too.
I’m really happy ours offers shredded chicken. I would have liked to do shredded beef as well but I figured that shredded chicken was sufficient. So much better than ground chicken! They also had an option for doing a fajita bar with chicken and steak with the veggies. It wasn’t much more but we really liked the simplicty of a taco bar, and I definitely wanted chimis with queso. 🙂

@artichokey: Did you use a local place or a big name restaraunt?

I wish there was a Mexican restaurant where I could have a Mexican buffet! Not that I need it. I dream of building my own nachos, and mixing my own salsas…. I would love to go to a wedding like that!

I love Mexican food! I would totally vote any wedding with a Mexican buffet as wedding of the year!!

This is what we are doing it is cheap and the food is GOOD. We’re paying 1500 for 150 people. Just go to your local mexican resturant.
