Village Voice's Description

Inspired by the gourmet cooking of Chicago's Rick Bayless, the menu at Cascabel Taqueria presents authentic regional fare of Mexico at the taqueria level of endeavor. The tacos themselves--two to an order--are scrumptious, simply dressed with cilantro and onions and mainly featuring long-braised meats (homemade chorizo, however, is our favorite). The spice-rubbed rotisserie chicken and cudgel-size beef rib are other superlatives, and you can't go wrong with almost anything on the micro-brew-oriented beer list. The place is mad cramped, so try to go early or late, and you may be delighted or repulsed by the Mexican wrestler motif.

Tips from foursquare

  • Try the cemita poblano, a whopping handful of shredded pork, cheese, avocado, mango and aioli, which is served only at lunch. The secret and critical ingredient is papalo, an herb similar to cilantro.

    Excellent Mexican food, good prices, cool setting. Negates the need for longtime staple Maz Mezcal. [Eater 38 Member]

  • Cheapism on 01/12/11

    Come here for tantalizingly cheap Mexican cuisine. Go for the chorizo tacos - $8.50 for two – or the Cemita Poblano for $9.50.

  • Village Voice on 11/22/10

    Inspired by the regional Mexican cooking of Chicago's Rick Bayless, Cascabel is filled with scrumptious surprises, from the taco stuffed with homemade chorizo to the massive chile-braised beef rib.

  • The Corcoran Group on 10/07/13

    Start your meal off with a Watermelon Basil Margarita, an order of guacamole, followed by the Carnitas tacos and Baja Fish tacos.
