XOCO — Rick Bayless Merges Mexican Street Food with Fast Casual

Watch this episode on

In this episode of Fast Casual Nation, brought to you by the Foodable Network, we’re visiting XOCO in Chicago, a fast casual that’s more “Mexican street food using seasonal Midwest ingredients” than Fresh Mex. Owned by Rick Bayless, XOCO is a chef-driven concept with a large focus on ingredients, and has been around since 2009. Watch the full episode as we talk to XOCO Manager Arthur Mullen about how XOCO came to be and what it stands for, and as we indulge in some of the concept’s most notable, historically cultured dishes, including tortas, churros and housemade guacamole!
