About Backyard Taco

Backyard Taco was born out of our dream to serve delicious Mexican food to all our family and friends straight out of our backyard. When we first started sharing the flavors of Mazatlan, we had no idea we’d eventually run out of space and expand into our first true restaurant location. Today, Backyard Taco is in several locations across the Valley area, with a plan to open more.

Despite our growth, we’re still focused on bringing genuine Mexican flavors to the people of Arizona, and we do it with fresh ingredients and serious fun. While our menu may look simple, we’re committed to flavor, and we know that only the bright flavors of authentic ingredients highlight the best of our recipes.

We first opened this location in June of 2022, and we continue to welcome the community into Backyard Taco Queen Creek. We’d like to think of the people we serve as more than just customers – you’re our amigos. In fact, you can even find merch at our Queen Creek location so you can share your love every time you leave home. From shirts emblazoned with luchador masks to our Taco Zen tee, let your friends know you’re a Backyard Taco Queen Creek amigo.

Queen Creek’s Most Popular Menu Items

Flavor is the most important thing we bring to the table. With authentic recipes and a real spotlight on simple ingredients, our Queen Creek location serves the best Mexican food around.

Tacos

Tacos

Our tacos feature protein options like carne asada (steak) and pollo (chicken), as well as birria (shredded beef) and al pastor. We keep our toppings simple and authentic, offering cilantro, red onion, tomato sauce, and cabbage for a taco that centers around the complex mesquite flavor of your favorite protein.

Papa Loca

Papa Loca

Our Crazy Potato is sure to please. With the same protein options as the tacos, as well as a vegetarian choice, a baked potato becomes your vehicle for excellent flavor.

Quesadillas

QUESADILLAS (STUFFED)

These aren’t your abuela’s quesadillas. We stuff our quesadillas full of your choice of carne asada, pollo, birria, al pastor, bean and cheese, or just cheese. Then, we offer fresh toppings to choose from.

Chorreada

GRILLED GORDITA

This is our own take on gorditas. Chorreadas are made with our handmade corn tortillas and stuffed with your choice of delicious meats and toppings.

More

BUENO BOWL

If these options aren’t enough for you, you can also choose from our burritos, grilled tostadas, Bueno Bowls, dessert options, and sides. If you need to feed a big crew, choose a family pack, ready to make up to 16 tacos.

Catering

Our Mexcellence Taco Bar includes four tacos each for a minimum of 10 people. We provide several delicious choices of meat, tortillas, and toppings – and don’t forget the chips and salsa! We’ll even send along plates and cutlery.

If you’re looking for something more customized, try a selection of Individual Box Meals. You can choose tacos or a burrito with customizable tortillas, meat, and toppings.

We also offer a Burrito tray with a minimum of six burritos, as well as a family pack that feeds up to five people.

Cinco de Mayo in Queen Creek, AZ

Cinco de Mayo is a grande deal for us. We love keeping our locations fun and festive, and that’s no different for our Queen City Backyard Taco. With folkloric dancers, music, and our Mexican cuisine, every year, we celebrate the Mexican victory over the French in 1862. Food, fun, and flavor allow diners and Mexican Americans alike to celebrate this important day of liberation at our Queen Creek location.

Queen Creek, AZ Community Involvement

Great tacos, chips, and salsa varieties. Be sure to try the milkshakes (best in town) and the flan. The portions are very generous with chicken overflowing from the tacos. Definitely a top choice if you are craving fresh street tacos in QC.

I went through the drive-in this evening. After doing some work across the street and smelling that nice smell trying to figure out where it came from. The the guy at the speaker and the girl at the window both were really nice and seem to have a good personality....

Delicious food and friendly staff. Chicken stuffed quesadilla was full of flavor and shredded beef taco was great! I'm thinking the negative reviews are from when they just opened and were packed. I suggest to try when they're not as busy. You won't be disappointed.

…and here’s a few more:

This place was AMAZING! I have only been to a few locations but absolutely loved the atmosphere at this location. Everyone was so sweet and they checked on you to make sure you were doing good, but they didn’t overly crowd you. Amazing service and will go back to this location.

“This is my favorite place to go for tacos. They are consistently good. Service is fast and friendly. I’ve tried different taco places and backyard taco is always on the top of my list.”

-Heather

I have been eating Backyard Taco since it was in Ruben & Mari’s backyard. I’m so happy they opened up in Queen Creek. Great food and great dining area!
