    1. I've heard that the birria at La Barquita (24th St & McDowell) is good, but haven't had it myself (and am only assuming you can get it in taco form).

        birra is good there. they have great happy hour prices until 6. can't beat queso fundido con chorizo for $3.50 and a $2 modelo espeical

      2. Just running a quick Google maps search shows four spots with "birrieria" in their name:

        Birrieria Obregon (2 locations)
        Birrieria El Gorvo
        Taqueria y Birrieria Jalisco
        Birrieria & Taqueria Del Yaqui

        But I can't find anything posted here or on the old Southwest board. Has nobody hit any of them?

          Guess I'll be taking care of that, then!

          Give me a couple of weeks and I'll report back on the lot of them.

            Planning on hitting La Barquita this afternoon as a baseline, since that one's gotten some press, with the rest to follow.

          2. Possibly El Tlacoyo on University east of the 101?

              Never seen birria at El Tlacoyo, but definitely check out the barbecoa (available only Saturday and Sunday).

            2. FYI, Birrieria El Gorvo is actually Birrieria El Gordo. The Google listing (now fixed) was incorrect.

              One to go. Full report Friday.
