Be careful when it comes to delicious food and buffet lines. People at the front of the line will inevitably take more food, especially the proteins. For that reason, when the meal is setup, you should aim for placing the meats at the very end and starches at the front. You should also consider over-ordering for more than your actual headcount if your budget allows, especially if you have some hungry eaters on your team. Alternatively, you may want to just order some extra protein. Similarly, if guacamole is in your taco bar, you may also want to over-order, especially since some people may grab full snack portions of guac and chips. Finally, it may be a good idea to tell people what you’re ordering — as an example, we’ve heard stories of office managers ordering taco bar with rice and beans as a small add-on, but guests thought they could create burrito bowls, which led to the rice quickly running out!

What do you need for a taco bar?
For the best taco bar, you need a variety of ingredients to satisfy everyone’s diverse palates. Bases are the most obvious — these include corn tortilla, flour tortillas, rice and beans. Note that when you go to a restaurant, some double up on the tortilla per taco so that the taco doesn’t fall apart in your hand from meat juices seeping through, but this is realistically unnecessary for a taco bar since, let’s be honest, most people in the buffet line aren’t going to ...more
How do you set up a taco bar?
In our opinion, the best way to set it up is to have starches at the front, then toppings, and meats and guacamole at the very end. Basically the most “prized” ingredients should be at the end because as people fill up their plates they are more likely to overfill their plates at the beginning when their plates are empty. If you have meats near the front, you will more than likely run into shortages unless you order extra.
What goes well with a taco bar?
Chips and salsa, churros, and salads are all great additions to a taco bar! It also never hurts to include more guacamole since that will run out quickly!
How many tacos are recommended per person?
We recommend 3 tacos per person (at the very least 2)! It ultimately depends on the size of the tacos and what other sides you have (if you have rice and beans, chips, etc.), but a taco bar should typically account for 2-3 per guest.
