Hello, I am planning a taco bar for 200 men in a few months and am trying find info to make sure I have enough stuff for it. I looked at the taco/potato bar tab but it was not clear for me. How much ground beef,cheese, do you suggest? Thanks for the help.

Tom, what is not clear about 3 1/8 gallon meat for 100? That is 25 pounds raw. Or 3 pounds 2 ounces shredded cheese per 100? If they are very heavy eaters and you are NOT serving rice and beans along with, you should increase everything another 10%.
