In 2004, owner and founder Bonifacio (aka Boni) received his first vertical rotisserie oven from his brother as a gift. He made his first batch of Al Pastor tacos at a party for his friends and family. After several more of these small gatherings, and some raving reviews, he sold his first taco at a Coast Union High School football game. He sold out the first time he set up shop…and the second…and the third…you get the picture. At this point, he had not even come up with a name for his business.
As a resident of Cambria for over 15 years, Boni was well known in the community; and what his friends all pointed out was that everyone at the football games was asking the same question, “Have you tried Boni’s tacos?”. So, when it came time to name the business, a unanimous decision was made to use the name, Boni’s Tacos.
Shortly after his success at the high school games, Boni decided to order a custom-built taco truck. When the truck arrived, Boni had the perfect spot picked out in downtown Cambria to set up shop. On March 25, 2005, Boni’s Tacos officially opened it’s window for business.
