Backyard Taco namesake derives from owners Ruben and Maricela Alvarez, making tacos al carbon over friends’ mesquite grills. 

As word spread, strangers showed up at these gatherings.

The signature steak, chicken, birria and al pastor tacos are $2.40, and they come as quesadillas, gorditas, tostados and burritos. Bean and cheese are also available. Families can order smoked meats by the pound for $27.50, which includes 16 tortillas and salsa. Try authentic Mexican horchata with your order.
