Birria tacos: Birria, also called birria de res, is a traditional Mexican dish with its roots in Jalisco, a state on the west coast of Mexico. Typically made with goat meat or mutton, tortillas are brushed in consomme’ (a flavorful broth) before being finished on a flat top griddle to give a pop of orange-reddish color that distinguishes them from other styles. In Texas, beef seems to be the choice of meat and typically served alongside is consommé to dip the crunchy, cheesy, meaty tacos. In Fort Worth, you can get your birria fix at:

  • Mariachi Dine In: Located inside of a gas station on S. Sylvania Avenue, Mariachi is serving classic as well as vegan birria tacos.
  • Birrieria y Taqueria Cortez: Food truck in South Fort Worth (2220 E Rosedale), cash-only.
  • Caliscience: Food truck with California roots, located on 3318 East Belknap, cash-only.
  • Paco’s Mexican Cuisine: Magnolia’s longtime favorite eatery has added birria to their daily menu.
