Great Cuban food in Bucktown

We headed out to Cafe LaGuardia in Bucktown last night based upon the glowing review it received on Check,Please! and were not let down. The interior is incredibly cozy and sexy with great lighting and overstuffed couches. The staff was very friendly and helpful, giggling when Ruth slipped and accidentally said “Shredded Wheat” instead of “Shredded Beef”.

The mojitos were strong and tangy, and the caipirinhas were pretty awesome too. I ordered the Cuban Pulled Pork special, which tasted like spicy heaven. The pork was insanely tender and the sauce was so hot my stomach felt like it was on fire. In a good way. Be sure to ask for bread if you order the shredded dishes as the sauce is just as delicious when you dip some bread in it.

Best part is, it is inexpensive for the quality and quantity of food you get (appx $8 – $15 per entree, with rice and beans included). I would suggest going on a Tuesday because they have live music, but it was cozy and conducive to conversation with our group of 7 without the music.
