664 TJ Birrieria Replacing Funky Garcia's In San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter

July 4, 2024

A new location of South Bay-born 664 TJ Birrieria is replacing Funky Garcia's in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. 

664 TJ Birrieria first opened in National City in 2016 and the company now has several locations around San Diego with another opened on the Las Vegas Strip in 2019. As the name suggests, 664 specializes in birria, a shredded beef stew offered in taco form, as well as in quesadilla, bowls, piled atop tostadas, and as its own, all served with sides of consomé birria broth for dipping. Named after the Tijuana area code, many of the restaurant's locations also offer a menu featuring an array of Mexican mariscos seafood dishes, like koko-aguachile featuring shrimp, octopus and coconut, a tomato seafood cocktail, shrimp ceviche, menudo, and a seafood tower, as well as flan available for dessert.

A new branch of 664 TJ Birrieria is in the works for the space that long housed Funky Garcia's Mexican bar and restaurant on Market Street in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. Simone Oliver of KW Fine Properties represented the buyer and seller on the lease. 

664 TJ Birrieria is expected to open in late 2024 at 421 Market Street in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. Follow the eatery on Facebook for more information.
