Cascabel Taqueria

Cascabel Taqueria Review

At Cascabel, the wrestling-theme decor is a whimsical backdrop for reasonably priced Mexican food. Tacos are inventive without veering too far from the comfort-food norm. The Camaron scatters plump roasted shrimp among fresh oregano, garlic oil, and black beans. The beef tongue is slow braised, then topped with spring onion and serrano chilies. There's also fresh, creamy guacamole with house-fried chips, pert tortilla soup with queso fresco cheese and chicken, and dinner-only platters like adobe-marinated Berkshire pork butt. At lunchtime, sandwiches—like shredded chicken with mango and smashed avocado—hit the spot with a cold Mexican beer. Inside seating is limited, but in temperate weather the outdoor tables expand your possibilities.
