Welcome to our family-owned mexican food and taco truck, where we serve the most delicious birria tacos in town. Our recipe is a family secret that we take pride in. Truly authentic Mexican food that has been taught and passed down from our Mom, the genius of the food, who comes from Guerrero, Mexico.

We are a close-knit family who loves making food for our community. Our hometown and the surrounding areas have always been special to us, and we feel privileged to be able to serve them with our mouth-watering Birria.

Our Family Story

Mexican Food cooked by the Tacos La Flama Family

Words from one of the co-owners: Michael

The whole idea of us opening a mexican food restaurant or a truck had always been something that we all as a family would think of doing for years. It was always just a conversation on how cool it would be to do but we never actually did it. We all believed that our mom’s cooking was something that needed to be shared with everyone and not just us. Until one day I wanted our Mom to make us a very popular taco that was going around called “Quesabirria”. I took a picture of it, uploaded it on Facebook, and the rest was history. I started to sell them from home until we decided to finally do it the right way, so we bought a trailer and began to build our own food truck. It was hard work but with the help of my brother and father we got it done, set our opening date, and now we are proudly serving our hometown Kenosha and other surrounding areas. We believe that food is a universal language that can bring people of all cultures and backgrounds together, and we have seen this firsthand through our loyal customers who come back time and time again.
