Birria1983 opens first bricks and mortar location at Downtown Orlando's Church Street Market

It’s been a long time coming but Birria1983 is now open in Downtown Orlando.

As we first reported last August, the mixed-use downtown Orlando retail building Church Street Market, located at 54 and 55 W. Church St is welcoming several new tenants this year including LA-style Mexican food company Birria1983.


Birria1983 has been operating as a popular Orlando area food truck for the past four years, and now the couple behind the food truck, Liz and Maureen Huert have opened its first bricks and mortar bar and grill in the space that was once home to Graffiti Junktion

Maureen and Liz, the dynamic duo behind this culinary adventure, found themselves at a crossroads when they lost their jobs due to the global shutdown in 2020. Faced with uncertainty, they harnessed their entrepreneurial spirit and ventured into the world of cloud kitchens. Together, they embarked on a journey of culinary exploration, crafting homemade Chilean delights and sharing them with the world online. Despite their delicious dishes, orders were too few to keep their dream alive.


Undeterred, Maureen and Liz decided to create their own rendition of birria. To their astonishment, their birria quickly became a sensation, and orders surged beyond expectations.


Capitalizing on this newfound success, Liz and Maureen took their dream to the streets. They purchased a food truck, fixed it up, and continued to serve their now-famous birria. Their dedication and culinary prowess did not go unnoticed, as Birria1983 quickly garnered multiple accolades, earning the title of Orlando's best Birria Tacos.


Inspired by their journey and the support of the great people of Orlando, in 2023, the couple set their sights on a new horizon—the opening of their own restaurant. Despite the hurdles that lay in their path, their determination and the alignment of fate paved the way for the opening of Birria 1983's Mexican Bar & Grill.
