Tacos Chiwas may look like just another unassuming neighborhood taqueria, but this small counter-service restaurant is home to top-notch, home-style tacos, gorditas, burritos, quesadillas, montados and other northern Mexican delights, done up estilo chihuahuense (Chihuahua style). Pretty much everything on the menu is good, but you shouldn’t leave without trying the restaurant’s signature taco chiwas, a beef-and-ham taco blanketed in bubbly asadero cheese and roasted Hatch chiles that’s built atop a freshly-pressed corn tortilla. Deshebrada, the house specialty shredded beef, is also very good. It’s available in both a red or green sauce, and you can enjoy it in a lush, drippy burrito, or stuffed inside one of the restaurant’s delicious homemade gorditas.
