OUR STORY

ENJOY EVERY DAY AND DON'T CARRY TOO MUCH BAGGAGE

Welcome To The Land of Punks & Poets

Our motto is simple: Life is like a road trip: “Enjoy each day and don't carry too much baggage” Rojo Gusano started as an idea between Chef Dudley Nieto and the Moreno’s to come together as a family and enjoy life's greatest pleasures: delicious food and great company, creating a place surrounded by tequilas, bourbons, mezcals, a fusion of ingredients, spices and flavors. Welcome to the land of punks and poets!

Mexican Food With No Borders

Chicago's diversity is what the Moreno family and Chef Dudley Nieto were looking for to create a perfect location for “food with no borders” or set nationalities. Creating a space where our neighbors and friends would make it their own. Through collaboration Rojo Gusano started forming and taking shape into a cool place where people could come in hang out, listen to distinctive and unique music, enjoy amazing food and drinks - all while maintaining the authenticity that comes from loving what they do.

A Family Legacy

The Moreno family comes from a town town Atizapán de Zaragoza, México rich in culinary culture and traditions that date back to the 1800s, including their grandfather! A pioneer of the pulque industry. With recipes and ideas in hand brought from their native place, Rojo Gusano was born.

Leave Your Mark

The Restaurant décor is a tribute to their favorite places: the sunny beaches and urban areas. Every photo and decorative items were chosen to best represent the vibes and ideas of each region. Rojo Gusano pays tribute to the culture of non-conformist; outcasts that shake it, surf and move every day in order to make their lives something meaningful and doing it with passion, always leaving their mark.
