“Brisket, potato, rajas, queso. Need I say more? This taco was by far the BEST thing I ate in Birmingham this month! The brisket was so tender and juicy and smothered in delicious queso, while the rajas provided just the perfect crunch to make this debatably the best soft taco in Birmingham. Just wow.”

Jessica Broom, Senior Account Executive

3. Carrot Cake, Pizza Grace

“This quesadilla was delicious (although a little messy!) and had the perfect amount of spiceyness. I ordered a beer to balance the spice—highly recommended.”

“There is a reason The Breakup Cookies are so well known in Birmingham. They’re warm, soft, chocolatey and the sea salt on top ties it all together. These are by far the best cookies I had this month.”

7. Mexican Street Corn, Aww Shucks 

Aww Shucks
So much flavor. (Gabby Gervais / Bham Now)

“If y’all haven’t tried this corn yet, RUN to get some. You can’t go wrong with any flavor, but my personal faves have been Mexican Street Corn and Garlic Herb Parmesan. It will change your life.”
