Here in Angels Camp, we are blessed with loads of great Mexican food. From La Hacienda, to Angel’s Mexican Kitchen, to Mary’s Taco Truck there’s an option for every palette. Even with so many options, Cascabel, the newest joint on the block, is shaking things up–hailed by many locals as the most “authentic” Mexican food in Calaveras County. With a lively night scene,  you’ll just have to give this place a try to see what all the fuss is about. (Want a sneak peak? Turn up the volume and click play.)
