La Tunita 512

tastemaker nominee

Family-owned La Tunita 512 specializes in the crunchy, cheesy — and now trending — birria tacos, originally from Tijuana. Diners recommend dipping the tacos in the house-made consommé, made with beef broth, cilantro, lime, and chili. The memorable scratch-made corn tortillas have also made the taco stop famous with locals. Hours vary because the cooks close down when they run out of tacos, so make sure to check Instagram for updates.
