Authentic Cuban dishes such as pork sandwiches, bean soup and ham croquettes draw weekday lunch crowds to this Belmont Cragin neighborhood spot with a festively colored dining room and a lively menu to match. Heartier dishes include ropa vieja and smothered oxtail. After the whistle blows, mojitos, margaritas and Cuban beers pair well with the pan-Latin music. At dinner, seafood selections such as ceviche and fried red snapper in Creole sauce rank among the house specialties. For dessert, try a mango- or plantain-flavored Cuban shake.
