Ordered some Mikes Red Tacos through uber eats and food came out amazing. I would highly recommend the crunch stack. Everything was still hot and this thing was big enough to feed a couple people. Definitely will be back very soon.
Small and busy place but the food came out fast. A good selection of salsas with a variety of spiciness. The birria was top-notch, even for my picky partner. The portions were big too. Totally worth the price.

New place that popped up. $4 taco with no cheese is pretty filling and the garnish with it is a plus. Take advantage of those napkins though, you’ll need them here. Also they have quite a few different sauces and salsa to add to your food. I’ll will happily return to here again.

I've had Mike's twice in two weeks. Their tortillas always taste stall to me. I don't prefer creamy guac, which is what this is. The birria tacos and consume are delicious though! Got the combo and added guac - the combos are a good deal.

This place did NOT disappoint! Hurry up and get here before it gets too popular! All the salsas are bomb. Even their chips are delicious and well seasoned. Our expectations were exceeded. I was drinking the consome out of the container. The birria itself is savory and exquisite. I ordered the #1. Mike and the staff provided a friendly, clean, and fun environment for some serious tacos.
The food is amazing! Please don't sleep on this place and the side consomé. You can tell they take the time to make the food to perfection. This will become our new spot! Service is amazing as well! ❤️ 10/10

Thanks for your kindness and delicious food Mikes! I asked if I could pick up a catering order of quesabirria tacos before the store technically opened, and they were happy to do so. All the salsas were labeled and freshly made. The tacos were juicy, flavorful and tortillas had the right texture to hold up to the filling. Consomme was perfectly seasoned and had that true homemade richness. They even made some vegetarian tacos up special for the vegetarian in our group. Gracias!

Amazing birria! Have been following them since their food truck days and the restaurant only makes it better. More salsa options, more menu options, and faster service! Highly recommend to anyone visiting SD or locals looking for top notch food

These aren't the kind of birria tacos you find at your local taco shop as a new item that got added last week because they're popular. These guys have been making delicious birria and quesa birria tacos in their food truck for a long time now and we are lucky to have them officially open up their doors in a set location in Clairemont!! You can't go wrong with anything you order, just make sure you get plenty of their great consome to pour over your food!!

I absolutely love this place. I've been going since Mike was only in the truck. Best birria in San Diego. You will not be disappointed
This is the best place to get your birria tacos! 10/10 recommend.I had the #1 which is their quessabirria tacos and my boyfriend had their birria Cali burrito. Their crunchstack is also DELICIOUS! Would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for your next birria outing.
