Smoke BBQ Taqueria
Even though they may be delicious with rice, beans, and guacamole, tacos and burritos wouldn’t be complete without deliciously flavored meat. Smoke BBQ Taqueria prepares their meals differently by not just sautéing their meats but barbecuing them as well, bringing a unique flavor to this Mexican cuisine. Fill your flour tortillas with Wagyu beef brisket, chicken, or 100% Berkshire pork ribs, bacon, and chorizo. The meat is so tasty that you can purchase it by the pound. There are also veggie tacos available, in addition to other non-meat items, such as jalapeno apple slaw, mac and cheese, and a hot queso dip. Wash it all down with a refreshing agua fresca or glass of horchata.
