It’s no surprise a Mexican meat market would make some of the best, no-frills barbacoa in town. First timers, take note: peruse the day’s selection of prepared foods (only available at certain locations so check ahead of time) before paying at the register and then ordering at the counter. The deli case contains pans of picadillo, al pastor, carnitas, chiles rellenos, rajas con queso and more—all of which can be served as plates, tacos or tortas. Barbacoa jalisciense—beef cheek meat slow-roasted with chiles and spices—is almost always on the menu here, and a hefty scoop is served on a double corn tortilla with a wedge of lime. Those in the know will also stop at the salsa bar for pickled jicama, onions, carrots and peppers.
