    They offer many different mexican beers. The burrito is huge and tasty, especially with the diablo sauce 🌶

    The margaritas were mediocre, the tortillas are good, but the Baja fish itself was under-seasoned and a bit disappointing. The carnitas tacos was decent.

    Get the "bottomless" drink option - drinks are weak AF. 😉

    Waiter gave me the impression I could pick 3 tacos but then brought 3 times the same. big disappointment. But the Al Pastor was good nonetheless.

    BE FOREWARNED: the chips for the guac are a tostada, if cracked recklessly there will be floor casualties.

    The gorditas con puerco (pork belly) was amazing. The mojitos/drinks were fun but mostly ice and not much alcohol, I would avoid

    Food is good, but too much hype. Similar to finally seeing that movie that everyone told you was amazing, but you leave the theater feeling disappointed. Poor service by rushing us at an off time.

    Not your mami's steak tacos. At Cascabel, we're talking all natural hanger steak, mushrooms, crema fresca, crispy onions and whole lot of flavor. Order yours today! Read more

    The mild guacamole is just that - good, but very mild. However, the Medium guac practically burned my mouth off! My advice: get the Mild with a side of jalepenos so you can adjust the spice yourself.

    Have heard good things about this place - it always seems crowded. My experience was not a good one. My margaritas had little to no tequila- an unfortunate discovery after dropping $10 a pop

    Great service, fair prices, and the tacos are ok, but they're nothing special. Dishes are too salty and most of them are served with very few tortillas (just four small ones, extra tortillas at $1).

    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.

    I am in love. The tortilla soup is perfectly spicy and awesome for chilly nights. Chicken and shrimp tacos are to die 4 as is a side of the frijoles with the tostadas to break and dip right in.

    Downtown feeling oasis on the Upper East Side-- now with table service. Excellent Mexican with a twist (you can't order rice or salsa). Save room for a dessert of bite size churros.

    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. Read more

    The shrimp, carnitas and carne asada tacos are fantastic as is the guacamole and the tomatillo hot sauce. The only downside (on my 2nd trip) is that they no longer serve Negra Modelo on draft :(

    the chorizo tacos are as smoky and tasty (and pricey; $7.50 for two wtf) as they say, but the churros are all free right before the joint shuts down and you can snag mini beers for $3.
