Northern Mexico, known for its rich ranch culture, is a grilling mecca. The region's distinct cuisine is a result of the amalgam of indigenous and Colonial culinary traditions, fusing a wide range of flavors.
At Choza Taqueria, we take traditional cooking and make it fast and flavorful. Whether it's our Carnitas or Carne Asada, each dish has specific sauces and toppings as designed by our Chef, but feel free to order your meal just the way you want it.
