The basics: Chicano-style BBQ is the specialty at this groundbreaking pop-up. The birria tacos are the standout, plump with fall-apart Birria de Res, crisped up on the griddle and served with consommé for your dipping pleasure. You can easily take down a few of them, but you may want to save room for other delights like Cheesy Carnitas and Smoked Brisket. JQ's Tex Mex BBQ

“Love his take on Tex-Mex BBQ. His birria tacos are [fire emoji, fire emoji, fire emoji]” - Quy Hoang, Blood Bros. BBQ
