CLOSED. Authentic Cuban in Bucktown.
Vendors wheel carts of helados (frozen treats) past the windows of this Cuban restaurant while cooks work the exposed grill inside. The casual space is divided into two rooms, the back one more upscale and lively than the front. The menu includes tasty specialties like yuca or papa rellena (meat-stuffed mashed yuca or potato), nicely spiced Cuban yellow rice and beans, and a variety of shredded meat, chicken, seafood, and pork dishes. Raters find the atmosphere fun and friendly and the food intriguing. On nights when there's live music the space can become quite loud.
