About

Birria tacos' are a hot commodity nowadays, growing in popularity over the past few years! They are a traditional Mexican dish that is typically made with goat or beef. The meat is slow-cooked in a broth made with a variety of spices, and the tacos are served with lemon or lime juice and a fiery salsa made with chiles de arbol. Birria tacos are said to have originated in the Mexican state of Jalisco, and they are now a popular street food dish all over Mexico.

If you have not yet tried Birria tacos, a visit to Birrieria los Mezquites is in order! They are delicious and have become one of my favorite taco options. Friendly reminder: Birria tacos are a little messy to eat, but that's all part of the experience, and the flavor is worth it. It gets a little messy because these are enjoyed by dipping your tacos in the provided broth. My mouth is watering just thinking about it... enjoy!

Environment

This famous birrieria is a great place to take groups due to its capacity and plenty of seating. It will not feel crowded at all and the staff are incredibly charming, hardworking people who will surely take great care of you. The birrieria almost gives you the feel of being in a big traditional Mexican hacienda. The food is authentic and the atmosphere is perfect. The tables are located in the middle of an old hacienda, and it is surrounded by Mezquites trees. This gives the place a traditional Mexican feel and also gives you an idea of where the inspiration for their restaurant name came from.

Mezquite is an endemic tree of the area, which can live up to 800 years, and is only found in the states of Sonora and Baja California in Mexico, as well as in Arizona and California in the United States. Since this place is surrounded by Mesquite trees that provide shade to the tables, you can be in the open listening to the birds singing but protect yourself from the intense heat of Peñasco due to the mezquite trees around.

While visiting the restaurant you will notice their menu is small, but surprisingly sufficient. They offer goat and beef tacos, a variety of drinks, including aguas frescas and sodas. Additionally, for those of you with a sweet tooth, you can choose from a variety of homemade Mexican desserts including flan, lemon carlota, and arroz con leche.

Must Try Items:

  • Quesabirria: Quesabirria is a delicious and addictive dish that is sure to please. This internet famous dish is a crispy quesadilla with meat, dipped in birria with cilantro, and diced onion previously added to increase the flavor. Whether you are looking for a tasty lunch or a hearty breakfast, quesabirria is a great option.
  • Tacos de Birria: Handmade tortillas, spiced birria meat, sliced onion, cilantro, green and red sauce, lemon drops and a pinch of salt, that's it…a piece of art! This item of classic Mexican cuisine is almost part of the national heritage. Of course every taco has its special set of flavors, and the ones they serve at this birrieria will leave you wanting more.
  • Lemon Carlota: A carlota is made with several layers of cookies with vanilla taste, topped in a sweet sauce, then frozen for a few hours to give it an ice cream-like texture. This is sometimes referred to as lemon icebox cake. There aren't many places in Rocky Point that offer it so make sure to order one of these and try it out!

After our visit to Birrieria Los Mezquites, we would definitely  recommend their delicious menu items after hanging out at the beach or even spending the day fishing. You will not be disappointed if you dine here on your next trip to Puerto Penasco!
