Location and contact

About
Established in 2016. Cacao Restaurante has finally taken root, settling into a new location in Kansas City that was home to Applebees for 10 years. But the address is where the similarity ends between these two concepts - and it's something the new owners know they'll have to explain to customers when they come through the door. Applebees was here for a long time, and they provided us this perfect space to work with for our concept, but they served american food - that will not resemble our dishes from Mexico," says Victor Esqueda, one of the partners in Cacao Restaurante and former owner of Ixtapa Mexican Cuisine. Cacao Restaurante is a partnership between and long-time restaurateur Victor

First time here.....chicken mole really well done, but side veggies too many peppers and onions. Tamales excellent. Very busy. Chips below average. Service nice but a bit slow. Chicken mole dish similar to the outstanding entree of same at old Frieda"s restaurant in OP.
