This friendly, family-owned Back of the Yards corner BYOB offers homestyle Mexican food at reasonable prices. With traditional starters like queso fundido, fried calamari and shrimp ceviche, the wide-ranging menu aims to comfort from the moment you arrive. Entrees include standard fajitas and enchiladas as well as seafood platters, whole fish and grilled meats. The namesake cecina, thiny sliced beef that's been salted and marinated, is available in several preparations, most notably as cecina azteca, which is covered with a molcajete salsa and melted cheese. Fresh juices and Mexican sodas are available if you choose not to booze (or if you're in need of mixers).
