Overlooking a scenic park, Rojo offers indoor and outdoor dining with a menu of Latin favorites and American standards. Your visit can start with any of their eclectic salsas, from the familiar tomato and pepper concoction to a sweet pineapple salsa or the habanero-spiced Bandito salsa. Tacos can be filled with chorizo, shrimp, steak, or even grilled mahi mahi, while you could also opt for an array of burritos or even the paella, which seasons up the Spanish standard with Mexican flare.
Down Highway 280, Don Pepe prides themselves on sourcing fresh ingredients for their cuisine, and their menu spans surf and turf with hearty steaks and succulent seafood. Specialties include their fajita-style chile relleno, a battered and fried poblano chile filled with fajita beef and coated in cheese and red caldito. For a bit of everything, consider the molcajete pesado, a stone bowl loaded with bell peppers, grilled nopales, blistered jalapeños, pork chops, sirloin steak, and chorizo.
Taco Morro Loco
If you’re in the Avondale neighborhood, you’ll find Taco Morro Loco in quick walking distance from all kinds of entertainment. As the name suggests, the restaurant prepares a variety of tacos with tasty corn shells and traditional garnish like diced onion and cilantro. Taco fillings include ground beef, shrimp, and other mainstays, and you can ask for the campechano tacos if you can’t decide between chorizo or steak. Tacos de lengua are also on the menu, as is a vegetarian taco with avocado, bell peppers, squash, and zucchini. Taco Morro Loco also operates a food truck, so be on the lookout for their mobile kitchen around town.
Try a Taco Truck
Sometimes the meal you’re looking for isn’t served under a roof – it comes from a kitchen on wheels. Birmingham is home to a host of amazing taco trucks, and it pays to keep an eye out for our city’s roving restauranteurs. Look for popular trucks like Dos Hermanos, who serves up tacos, quesadillas, and more with wonderful meats like tender barbacoa or pork belly. Around Hoover, you might find Taqueria Juarez, with familiar taco fillings like steak and chorizo alongside specialty selections like rich, melty cachete.
