Cabeza Grande Tacos & Tequila quietly opened last summer in the space directly behind Mari Bakeshop in Bridgeland. It’s the third restaurant of the same name for owners Jerry Beasty, Matt Urbanowicz and Gradey McMahon, who describe them as Mexican-inspired eateries with a little southern California flair. Nick Isaac brings extensive restaurant management experience to the team as general manager.
Try the Quesadilla Salad with mixed greens tossed with cheese, tomatoes, black beans and a hatch-chili vinaigrette topped with pineapple salsa, tortilla strips, a chipotle aioli and served with a cheese quesadilla. Barbacoa Mushrooms and Crispy Avocado are stand-outs in the taco department and the Tijuana Dog pairs nicely with any of the tequila flights. Check out their other two locations in Canmore and Cochrane.
