This casual Mexican spot in Humboldt Park has birria that we can only describe as transcendent. While we ate it time stopped and the restaurant dissolved around us like pixels in The Matrix, with nothing else existing besides the truth of braised meat and flavorful red consomé. Birria is (obviously) the specialty here, but the menu also includes things like fajitas and chilaquiles, incredible handmade tortillas, and a short beer list. Plus, it’s decorated with a fun mural that’s colorful enough to pull you back into reality - though we’re not holding that against it.
