El Kacheton

$$$$

El Kacheton is a casual spot in Cragin with only about eight tables in the whole restaurant. The menu is a chalkboard above the register and includes four rotating varieties of fantastic speciality tacos. The Lomo is filled with skirt steak, beans, cheese, and rice, and the Kacheton has a mixture of tripe and chorizo with cheese, grilled peppers, and onions. These tacos are heavy (in a good way) and made with perfectly grilled handmade tortillas that hold up against all the fillings without falling apart. If you don't already know about this place, we suggest heading here immediately.
