I went here awhile ago, but I couldn't find my pictures until recently this was an awesome place to have authentic cemitas.
The place is not too appealing. They really need to update it and give it more of a Puebla flair. The cemitas are sort of dry. I had the the Milanesa and chalupa and I was not impressed. The cemitas are okay. They taste like a French bread cheese and avocado but favors don't pop at all.
Wow!! The journey hear was a bit scary because the streets of Chicago have a lot of stories to tell! We travel a lot for my husbands work and have been to Cemitas twice! Both times the food has been amazing! The Cemitas Atomica is absolutely PACKED with FOOD and flavor!!! Each bite was a WOW! Seriously my husband and... More
We visited several restaurants in the Chicago area that were featured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. While this place is definitely a "dive" in an interesting area, the food was simply amazing! Very flavorful, fresh and unique. The owner was super friendly, took some fun pictures with us and made us smile. Can't wait to go back!
Cemitas( big Mexican sandwich) are more bread than anything else, they don’t put a lot of meat, avocado, papalos ( green leaves), you are better off getting a regular Torta (less carbs). I must say the Chalupas a really good spicy hot, I was not impress with the place or the location of the restaurant, old and dirty looking, I... More
Yet another one of our Chicago stops based on when we saw on DDD. The place is small, like a take-out pizza/sub-shop with seating for 20 or so people. As a part of 6, we tried a variety of things and especially liked the Cemitas Al Pastor and the Carne Asada. The owner was super-friendly, and even sat with us... More
After seeing this place on "Check Please" and "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives", I wanted to try it out. Their specialty is a sandwich which is similar to a torta but features MUCH better bread. The meat is well seasoned and guacamole is liberally spread on. It is very tasty and is a nice respite from the usual taqueria and is... More
Always wanted to try a Cemita sandwich. A friend told us of this place. The food is cooked to order and very tasty. Had the carne asada and tried the roasted pork and onions. Great sauces that compliment the food. We are going back to try the other selections. Very reasonably priced. A great place to stop in for lunch.... More
My dilema is that if your a restaurant that serves tacos n tortas(which thats what a cemita actually is, simply different bread) your sauces is what will differentiate yourself from the rest. I was not overwhelmed.They gave me three salsas........green, red, n chipotle. The green salsa was overpowering of cilantro. The red salsa tasted sour as if it was almost... More
The Cemita Atomica is a king among sandwiches and a must try for any sandwich lover. With three kinds of meat (grilled steak, fried pork chop and grilled ham) it's a tasty and filling lunch. The bread on the sandwich (for which the restaurant is named) is legendary with Chicago foodies. It is crispy and firm and easily supports the... More
