Birriamaniacs, Get Ready to Eat at L.A. Taco’s BIRRIAMANIA on March 21st

    [dropcap size=big]A[/dropcap]re you a maniac for birria? 

    L.A. Taco and the Santa Anita Racetrack are celebrating the taco lifestyle by bringing the best birria taco vendors in Los Angeles to the San Gabriel Valley’s original place for world-class horseracing. 

    Taste all the regional styles that Los Angeles has to offer side by side: Zacatecas, Tijuana, Michoacán, Jalisco, and more. Best of all, after you’ve soaked your tacos in all the different broths, you’ll be able to wash it all down with cold craft beers. 

    Who will take home the coveted L.A. Taco's BIRRIAMANIA Championship Belt? Will the tens of thousands of Instagram followers behind the beef birria warriors Teddy's Red Tacos and Birrieria Gonzalez resort to a wall of death to see who comes out alive? Will Tacos y Birria La Única call upon their star power in the form of Chrissy Teigen for back up in their efforts for birria glory? Will L.A. Birria's birria ramen sucker-punch the tortilla competition with their floppy noodles? Or will newcomer El Tijuanazo pull the upset of the century and beat them all?

    Oh wait, two more challengers are approaching the squared circle. It's the goat-powered OG chivo birrieros! The Goat Mafia, fresh out their glossy Bon Appetit national premiere, and the last challenger: Birrieria Don Boni...with a steel chair straight outta Boyle Heights!

    Which local birriero will win the royal birria rumble and take it all? You gotta show up to find out.

    Buy your tickets here. The early bird tickets start at less than $20 bolas and it includes four juicy tacos and a brew. There are worse ways to spend a Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles.

    Join us at the Santa Anita Racetrack on March 21st at noon to unleash your birriamaniac. The event is open to all ages. Here are the participating birria vendors so far.
