Michi Tacos Selected as Menifee’s May Business Spotlight

The City of Menifee is thrilled to announce “Michi Tacos” as the City’s May Business Spotlight, a program that is a part of the Economic Development Department’s B3 (Building Better Businesses) program.

Michi Tacos, a beloved local spot in Menifee, is renowned for its welcoming atmosphere, music, locally-sourced ingredients, and its trademark delicious birria tacos! The combination of tender birria, savory consomé, and gooey cheese all encased in a crispy fresh tortilla is what makes Michi Tacos’ birria tacos a true culinary delight.  Whether you’re a taco aficionado or simply someone who appreciates good food, a visit to Michi Tacos promises an unforgettable dining experience that will have you coming back for more.

Michi Tacos started as a dream for German and Karol Herrera. In 2019, their vision came to life with the opening of their first location in Lake Elsinore. Shortly after, they introduced their Menifee location in 2022 and since its grand opening, Michi Tacos has become a beloved local eatery. What sets Michi Tacos apart is not just the incredible flavors bursting from every bite, but also the dedication to using fresh, high-quality ingredients with classics like carne asada, al pastor, and carnitas, as well as unique creations like their signature birria ramen.

German and Karol prioritize three key values for Michi Tacos’ mission statement: customer experience, employee environment, and food quality. They believe creating a fun and lively customer experience is essential to their business. From the moment a customer walks in, to the last bite of their delicious food, they strive to make every interaction memorable. In that same vein, they understand the importance of fostering a positive and supportive culture for their employees. Happy employees lead to happy customers and they make sure that their team feels heard, valued, and respected. Finally, when it comes to food quality, German and Karol spare no effort in sourcing the freshest ingredients and crafting mouthwatering recipes that keep customers coming back for more. To them, these values are not just principles to follow, but a way of life that sets Michi Tacos apart.

Supporting the community is also a core value of Michi Tacos. They have collaborated with various organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Oak Grove Center, the Boys and Girls Club, Ronald McDonald House to provide “Meals from the Heart,” Menifee’s State of the City Address, and their unique community initiatives. For instance, Michi Tacos hosts Taco Tuesdays during the summer for children in the Menifee community in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club. Currently, they are partnering with the Menifee school districts for a back-to-school backpack drive providing backpacks filled with school supplies. They also run their own Michi Tacos Christmas program, where they sponsor families in the Menifee community. This includes a day filled with activities like meeting Santa, enjoying a hot chocolate bar, catering by Michi Tacos, arts and crafts, and providing groceries and essential items to families in need.

“Michi Tacos is more than just great Mexican food, it’s a vibrant hub of community spirit where the aromas and flavors come together to create a truly immersive experience. From the lively music to the staff’s warm smiles, Michi Tacos is a place where you can feel at home,” said District 3 Councilmember Lesa Sobek. “Their commitment to making a positive impact in Menifee is inspiring and serves as a wonderful example of how businesses can contribute to the well-being of their community.”
