A must try for the Houston vegan scene!

These folks are making magic in the kitchen at Cascabel, so delicious and flavorful! Highly recommend the street taco sampler, it’s filling and you get to try so many wonderful flavors all at once! Also, the dirty horchata with coffee is the stuff of dreams!

Pros: Delicious flavors , No shortage of menu options , Kind and attentive staff

Fantastic selection!

Great laid-back vibe, un-pretentious, and WOW their specialty "meat" selection! I got the taco platter with: bistec, baja, al pastor, tinga, and fajitas, and couldn't decide which one was my favorite because they were all amazing. My partner got the quesadilla poblana and we were enthralled with it as well. Big fan of this place and it'll be on our list to hit whenever we're back in Houston!

Favorite restaurant

Since I've stopped eating meat , I missed good Mexican food. Cascabel brought it back for me. I recommend it every single time someone asks me for good food. Everything you order comes perfectly seasoned and you can ask for extra hot salsa. 10/10.

Pros: Food, Service

An All-Vegan Mexican Restaurant? Yes, Thanks!

I ordered online, and was in the restaurant only long enough to get my bag of dinner, so I can't say much about the ambience or service. (TThough there is a large outdoor seating area, along with the inside space, and they were feeding a beautiful neighborhood cat out on the patio.) But I can attest that my dinner was wonderful! I got their special burrito that allows for a number of customizations; I was very happy with how mine came out, but I suspect many other combinations, and other dishes, would be just as pleasing. I look forward to your report when you go!

Pros: Tasty, Many options, Good-sized portions!

Cons: Not close enough to where I'm staying!

All vegan Mexican with adorable patio

We had an amazing dinner here on the cute outdoor patio. Highly recommend the Tamarindo Margarita. Tostada plate with jackfruit meat was the highlight!

Great jackfruit enchiladas

I liked the jackfruit enchiladas and would be happy to get them again, though with so many options on the menu, there are lots of things I'd like to try. Three enchiladas smothered in cheese and a sauce, served with rice, a small salad, and three salsas. Friendly staff, too.

Pros: All vegan Mexican with a huge variety , Nice people

My favorite vegan spot so far!

Our waitress was so kind and so helpful, which was the first of many great things about this place. There were so many delicious options to pick from! I sampled dishes around the table - they were all amazing. The carnitas stood out because of the exceptional flavor and texture! I really cannot say enough good things about this place! 💖 Can't wait to come back and try more things. :)

Pros: Flavors are through the roof , Friendly and helpful service, Amazing selection of food

I was impressed with this place because the cheese tasted so real, fresh and flavorful. No dish here was NOT delicious and I was quite full by the end of the meal. Service was great and very accommodating too.

Cons: Inside Not Super Clean

Pretty good Mexican food

To be honest the food isn’t to die for. It’s great if you haven’t had Mexican food in a long time since going vegan, but it’s really heavy and some dishes are way too greasy. Not to mention their desserts never taste really fresh.

Pros: All vegan, Mexican food

Cons: Oily/greasy, Expensive , Isn’t totally amazing

Everything I've had from them has been amazing! My favorites are the Tinga and Barbacoa by far, although I can't eat the Barbacoa on it's own without feeling like it's "too realistic." They're both very well seasoned with good texture.

Their cheese is also really good, way better than I've ever had or bought anywhere else. Their queso on the other hand kind of tastes like what I imagine those spray can cheeses taste like tbh. The chipotle mayo is also really good, almost suspiciously eggy even.

I was lot less impressed with the Al pastor. It's still good just not anything amazing like the other two in my opinion. Their Mole sauce was also extremely sweet imo, but I do have a low tolerance for it and it still had a lot of flavor.

Pros: Really Tasty, Amazing cheese, Decent portions

Cons: Addons are $2 at minimum

Real Tacos!!

Most of the time, vegan tacos are more of a trendy-fusion food item; Tex-Mex at best. The restaurant is undeniably authentic as are the tacos. SO TASTY!! You get a lot of food per order as well.

Good food but...

So many choices with a good outdoor. Unfortunately the servers were inattentive. Watched multiple guests sit and wait with no attention from servers.
Never received refills on our drinks and we had to go in after waiting more than 20 minutes for our check.

Good food, but I likely won't return due to the service.

Pros: So many choices., So many protein options

Cons: Inattentive wait staff

The taco platter was so good. I wish I could remember which protein was which because there were a couple that stood out more than others but they are all good! Loved the charo beans too.

Stale cold food, not worth the trip

I saw so many great reviews and decided to get a few friends together and tried out the place. Aside from the patio, the place is subpar. Food was cold and stale. When it was brought out, it looked and tasted worse than my high school cafeteria. Everyone was disappointed to say the least. I'd rate 1* because it's vegan but Happy Cow doesn't allow vegan places to be 1*.

Pros: vegan, patio

Cons: food, atmosphere
