SF Weekly's Description

Ruddy, fat-flecked goat stew (birria) is a Gallardos specialty. The meat is chewy and half-blackened; the broth is rich and soothing, especially once it's doctored with raw onions, cilantro, and lime. In addition to birria, weekend diners at this homey Mission District Mexican restaurant, love ordering the chilaquiles and menudo. The open kitchen means you can catch a glimpse of your meal coming together as you wait - sipping a cold Pacifico and enjoying the procession of families, hungover hipsters, and mariachi performers passing through.
