A new restaurant and nightclub concept has recently taken over the former Headz & Tailz space at 301 N. Washington. If you’re into the local restaurant and food truck scene, you may be familiar with them. Uno Mas’ owner Abel Rodriguez has opened Cabron Y Vagos.
I finally had a chance to check out his new restaurant concept. So, let’s get to it.
301 N. Washington St., Wichita, KS 67202
Monday – Thursday: 11am – 9pm
Friday – Saturday: 11am – 2am
Closed on Sunday
Rodriguez has transformed the space to give it some new life. While I was there over lunch, the nightlife scene has been drawing big crowds in the weeks its been open. He opened the front of the building, adding garage doors that connect the restaurant to the patio space. Space heaters were also placed in the patio, so the space could be utilized year round. During the weekends, when they are open until 2 a.m., Mexican bands and music keep the vibe going.
How about the food at Cabron Y Vagos?
All diners are given complimentary chips and salsa. Their mild salsa might be one of the best in town.
The menu featured many of the dishes that could be found at Uno Mas. When I dropped by, I requested to order whatever was popular or sounded good at the time. This was what they brought out.
Molcajete! It came out piping hot in a 400-degree molcajete bowl and stuffed with beef, chicken, shrimp, Oaxaca cheese, grilled onion, zucchini, squash, peppers and nopales and served with tortillas.
I love molcajete, it’s so visually appealing and the sizzle warms my heart. Of course, it helped the meal was delicious and filling. All the proteins were nicely seasoned and don’t worry, none of the food is overcooked or burnt because of the bowl.
If you get tired of tacos or burritos (blasphemy, right?), then perhaps try a molcajete at Cabron Y Vagos. Maybe one of these evenings, I’ll have to get a sitter and check out the night scene.
Here’s the menu:
