San Diego Birria Specialist Mike's Red Tacos To Open Brick-And-Mortar Restaurant

March 21, 2022

San Diego birria destination, Mike’s Red Tacos, is ready to move from a one-day-a-week food truck to a brick and mortar restaurant. 

Launched as a food truck in June 2021, Mike's Red Taco quickly became a weekend destination for its Saturday food truck pop up on Morena Boulevard in San Diego's Bay Park community. The brand is the product of Michael Touma, who decided to take his obsession with slow-cooked beef birria to the next level with the opening of his food truck. 

Touma is now ready to open his first brick-and-mortar eatery in San Diego's Clairemont community and has taken over the space last occupied by Wings Republic within Liberty Park Plaza. Aiming to open by this summer, Mike's Red Tacos will continue to serve beef birria tacos with consomé broth for dipping, plus birria ramen noodle soup, mulitas, and his signature Taco Bell-inspired birria Crunchstack. New menu items like burritos may also be added to the menu. 

Mike's Red Tacos will open later this year at 4310 Genesee Ave, Suite 104, in San Diego's Clairmont community. For more information, visit
