No secret what the specialty is at Birreria La Barca: It’s the birria. An order gets you a nice pile of braised goat meat (juicy and tender) in an incredibly flavorful broth, house-made refried beans, rice, tortillas, and the usual accoutrements, says Clare K.

La Barca may execute its meals better than any other regional Mexican restaurant, says Eat_Nopal, with the exception of some blah dishes that pad out its menu, like chicken cordon bleu (??!!) and taquitos.

Service is swift and polite.
