Foursquare Tips

  • Tacos arabes-Lebanese and Mexican food with a flour tortilla almost like a pita, wrapped around schwarma-like spit-roasted pork and onion. Try all three salsas: salsa verde, salsa roja, and chipotle.
  • Guy Fieri, host of Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, visited Cemitas Puebla in Chicago, IL, for a one-of-a-kind Mexican sandwich.
  • The brisket cemita by Cemitas Puebla and Smoque BBQ is one of the 100 best things we ate this year. http://tmout.us/rLOtk
  • Best horchata in Chicago. Say hi to Tony.
  • The carne asada cemita is probably the best food I have ever had. Hands down my favorite restaurant in Chicago. Pair one with a Mexican Coke!
  • This restaurant is the only one of its kind in Chicago serving cemitas, authentic poblano sandwiches made on sesame seed rolls slathered with avocado and chipotle adobo, stuffed with meaty fillings.
  • No matter who you are & where you're from, broad swaths of food-loving humanity make the trip to Humboldt Park for Tony Anteliz's authentic cemitas sandwiches and spit-roasted meat. [Eater 38 Member]
  • The Cemitas are amazing! And the salsa on the table is fantastic too. This place is a shrine of deliciousness :)
  • This Humboldt Park staple may be best known for its cemita, but their tacos arabe may be the best dish on their menu.
  • My sister really enjoyed the Milanesa cemita. I loved my asada torta! The bread was great and fresh super soft and has a great taste. Service was great very polite!!!
  • 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 sauted mixed veggies. It only had lettuce & tomatoes. :( I would have ordered something else if I'd been told the truth. Bad first experience.
  • Get the chalupas, cemita arebes, and tacos arebes with the green salsa! Best items on the menu!
  • Get anything with the arabes. Tacos or cemitas arabes are amazing.
  • I can't get the Carne Enchilada Cemita out of my head. The chorizo taco is the best ever--crunchy crispy. Great service too.
  • I had the tacos arabes and wasn't disappointed. I look forward to trying some of their other selections.
  • El pastor and chorizo are really good.
  • Amazing food. I am officially hooked. Best type of sandwich (cemita) in chicago. Don't call it a torta...
  • The food is so good at this place.......really good family recipes :-)
