In 2020, one of my favorite restaurants around town that opened was Chuyitos Birrieria. Located at 1415 W. Pawnee, they probably sit at the very top of my list for birria. They offer a goat birria that has been by far the most flavorful in Wichita. Over the past year, they’ve also been putting out creations like birria ramen that I’ve returned for multiple times. This month, they collaborated with Personal Chef Roberto to release a menu of Mexican style pizzas.

I was joined by fellow local food bloggers, Fert the Foodie and Significantly Spicy, and we had three of their pizzas.
But before that, we were treated to complimentary bean dip, consomé and chips to start. I loved the consomé. It was a bit spicier than others around town and incredibly delicious. It just so happens to also be my favorite in Wichita.
But try not to eat too much of the complimentary food because the pizzas are filling.
We had their Taco Pizza, Birria Pizza and Asada Pizza. For what it’s worth, you can order a pizza with any of the meat options on the menu. I didn’t get an exact measurement, but the pizzas were around 14-16 inches.
The most important thing to know was how heavy the pizzas were. The toppings were piled on thick and even the biggest of appetites at our table were full soon after. The prices of the pizzas were $24.95 and one pizza would easily have been enough for 3-4 people or even more if you included kids. I was full after two slices but had to keep on eating for the sake of blogging.
The taco pizza was topped with seasoned beef, lettuce, tomato, onion and served with salsa. Meanwhile, the birria pizza was topped with the city’s best birria, cheese, cilantro, onions, pickled red onions and served with a side of consomé. The Asada pizza was topped with cheese, cilantro, onions and grilled onions.
Both the Birria and Asada pizzas did a great job of capturing the classic flavors typically found in tacos. They were my favorite two pizzas of the afternoon. While I’m not usually a huge taco pizza fan, the other guys at the table really enjoyed it.
Not to be forgotten was the crust. It wasn’t a thick or thin crust; it was probably somewhere right in the middle. There was still a slight crispiness factor to it yet was thick enough to fill you up; kind of hard to explain and one of those “you have to try it” foods.
Overall, we all had a great time and left nearly crawling out. Remember, these are only available on Mondays so check it out sometime.
Here’s their regular menu:
