Welcome to Tacos El Cuñado
At the Downtown Market
Mexican street food is popular America, but Mario Cascante and Hector Lopez are excited to bring their particularly authentic flavor to the Grand Rapids scene with Tacos El Cuñado. Along with tacos, burritos, and quesadillas, this Downtown Market eatery also features Latin American grocery items and a self-serve salsa bar.
The duo sources many of their ingredients from Michigan rotate dishes that are popular in Costa Rica and other Central and South American countries. They want customers to taste real Latin American food. You’ll recognize the ingredients, but the preparation will be something new.
Some things about Mario and Hector that we think make them pretty cool: This is their first business venture together; Mario is an attorney, and Hector has owned many restaurants in Texas, Kansas, and Michigan; and they plan to feature items like “Tacos Del Mercado,” which will feature ingredients sourced from within the Market.
