The Main Line has plenty of options for both longtime birria taco lovers and people looking to branch out and try the foodie trend for the first time.

Birria, traditionally a Mexican soup or stew, is one of those luscious dishes that hits all the savory notes just right. The beef (traditionally goat, but often subbed for beef or chicken) is cooked until it’s fall-apart tender and melts in your mouth. Unsurprisingly, this makes for the perfect taco base, too. In the handheld rendition, restaurants fill tortillas with the saucy delight and sometimes dip them into the stew or pan-fry them until crispy. The resulting tacos are flavor bombs that have taken the internet by storm, and for good reason.

Here’s where to try birria tacos for yourself around the Main Line.
