This restaurant is the most innocuous and oddly located restaurant of its quality that I have encountered.
Located in an older strip mall, beside the freight train tracks, in the neighborhood of my youth—one walks in from gray post-industrial Chicago to a clean, casual, cheerful restaurant that instantly creates anticipation of a great meal.
AND Senor Pan, on Fullerton Avenue does not disappoint. The signage states Cuban Cafeteria. But no cafeteria here, casual, welcoming table service is the first surprise.
Second surprise is Cuban Cuisine. Not steam table cafeteria food. Empanadas are fresh, hot and properly prepared.
A menu well-balanced between, entrees and/or sandwiches. Appetizers, soups and all one would expect. Homemade quality and variations of Cuban cuisine.
Plates are platters and the sides are outstanding. The sweet plantains are truly outstanding.
Do not let the post-industrial neighborhood intimidate you. This is home cooking in a friendly environment.
