A short walk uphill from Ogden’s trendier Historic 25th Street bars and eateries is Michoacán, a under-the-radar, family-owned and operated Mexican café with terrific tacos and much more.

Restaurant Details

Michoacán is an under-the-radar, family-owned and operated Mexican café with terrific tacos and much more. The owner, a dapper gent from the Mexican state of Michoacán de Ocampo, speaks fluent English with a slight Gulf Coast drawl and is as friendly and courteous as any staffer you’d find at your favorite Michelin three-star joint. The food? It’s cheap and lip-smacking. Four bucks will buy you a torta sandwich on a soft bolillo, stuffed with diced and spiced grilled chicken, refritos, guacamole, greens and fresh tomato. Small traditional tacos on a double layer of corn tortillas come in the standard varieties: lengua, buche, carne asada, pollo, etc., and are the best way to spend a dead president that I know of. Choose a Jarritos or cold bottle of Coca-Cola from the ice barrel in the back and be sure to stop by on weekends for homemade menudo.
