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.
Tips from foursquare
SF Weekly’s Best Of 2011 Winner – Editorial Pick – BEST WEEKEND BIRRIAThe 51yr old restaurant has birrias so thick they could be mistaken for moles and the tables still fill every Sat & Sun...
Try the main attraction-- Gallardo family’s Jalisquense soups: pozole, menudo and birria (order the version with the slow-roasted lamb on the side):
Love the music and pictures on the walls. The food is yummy-licious and the staff super nice! Great spot to grab lunch.
Try the Braised Lamb Shank "Birria" and spot it on Foodspotting!
Chilaquiles, torta con Milanesa and the menudo are my favoite
