    This Humboldt Park staple may be best known for its cemita, but their tacos arabe may be the best dish on their menu. Read more

    Cemitas are always a sure fire hit in my opinion but another gem no one really mentions is the chicharrón quesadillas. So much flavor! I really haven't had anything I didn't like from this place.

    The food was a bit of a let down. The service was amazing, & the owner was so nice. He went out of his way to explain all the items on the menu. Must try the cilantro hot sauce.

    Don't order veg cemitas. Was told it had sautéed mixed veggies. It only had lettuce & tomatoes. :( I would have ordered something else if I'd been told the truth. Bad first experience.

    While the cemitas here are good, the tacos should not be overlooked.
