Thamara CafeteriaLogan Square
A neighborhood quick-service spot through and through, the specialty at this Logan Square Puerto Rican cafeteria is undoubtedly jibarito sandwiches. For the uninitiated, that’s steak or chicken, onions, tomatoes, cheese and other herbs and spices sandwiched between fried sweet plantains. Unlike other spots in the ‘hood, you’ll also find breakfast here, with traditional favorites such as omelets and other egg dishes. Chicken soup, burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches and salads also make up the inexpensive menu, and a BYOB policy is in effect for those so inclined.
