Taco Tuesday in Tucson: Quesabirria Tacos at Amelia’s Mexican Kitchen

“Taco Tuesday in Tucson” is a column where we explore the unique tacos stands throughout Tucson… on Tuesdays.

Over near Grant and Craycroft, it seems to be hustlin’ and bustlin’ with Mexican cuisine, including Quesadilla’s, Paco’s, Frida’s Cafe, and now a new restaurant is contributing to the scene.

The spot Amelia’s Mexican Kitchen recently opened its doors at 5553 E. Grant Rd. — the space that formerly housed Queen Sheba — and has been coming in strong on Taco Tuesday.

When it comes to tacos, they’ve got a few to choose from like Carne Asada, Carnitas, Grilled Chicken, Chicken Habanero, Ground Beef, Pastor, Beer Battered Shrimp, and Veggie. Each of the tacos can be ordered a la carte, comin’ in hot at $2.40 – $3 each.

However, give the Quesabirria Tacos a shot — equipped with onions and cilantro in a white corn tortilla. Plus, you can’t go wrong with some dip so be sure to get it with the caldo.

The restaurant is open 10:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. on Sunday – Thursday and 10:30 a.m. – 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
