Festive restaurant & bar serving traditional Cuban fare plus mojitos, margaritas & beer.
The Cuban food here is amazing! I love that they are a small restaurant. They really know their customers. I come here every two weeks with my colleagues who are also teachers. The lady who is the hostess and waitress (I have to get her name). is ver cordial and sweet. They will usually have our food ready for lunch time if we call in the orders ahead of time. We come early for the “daily lunch special”. I have never had a a bad dish here. The food is home made and incredibly flavorful. I’m a huge fan for many years to come.
D’Cuba Restaurant is located on Fullerton, and some people say this is one of the best Cuban restaurants in the city. I’d say it is pretty good, with a pleasantly cozy interior. My love and I recently dined here as part of a surprise birthday party gathering. Someone in our group knows the owner, so everything ran smoothly during our dining experience. We noshed on family-sized platters of food including Cuban favorites such as ropa vieja, arroz con gandules, tostones, yuca with garlic sauce, lechon, shrimp, black beans and more. Thanks in large part to the tasty food and customer service, our party was a memorable experience.
I have loved loved loved this place for years never had a complaint I would of always recommended this place after my last meal when a ROACH walked across my table with our meal!!! They didn’t hesitate to give my meal complimentary. I didn’t want the food after that!
This Cuban spot was okay for me, nothing out of the ordinary. Simply because I was born in Chicago, but most of my life I’ve been in Miami so I know authentic Cuban food when I see it, and this didn’t really cut it. I don’t take away from the obvious fact that Cubans aren’t really seen in Chicago, so I can understand why it didn’t taste authentic to me. A lot was missing from the menu that I would see at traditional Cuban spots but I made due with what was on the menu. We had the little toasted bread slices with butter (tostadas) as an entry before ordering which was perfect because that’s probably my favorite thing at any Cuban restaurant . I ordered the ropa vieja with white rice and beans, my brother ordered a pollo empalizado also with white rice and black beans. My aunt ordered a shrimp fajita (not sure how this collaborates with a Cuban style restaurant) with morro rice. We also had yuca and papa rellena passed around as appetizers. Everything was delicious, nonetheless and I enjoyed my meal, I had to take some home with me because I was so full!
Ordered on Grub Hub, 2 steak sandwich, ceviche maduros, so delicious definitely will order again ASAP food came warm and very well packaged. delicious flavor!
Decided to go here based on a friend’s recommendation bc it’s a BYOB w/o corkage fee …. it’s a family owned and run place is small, service is slow bc of limited staff, most common plates are already made; you can tell because for example I ordered the rice congri and ropa vieja (Black rice and shredded beef) and I had to ask them to put it in the microwave.. they tasted good though… parking too is limited … nothing spectacular but if you are looking for a BYOB and a home cook meal give it a try … I would go back but will only order some thing made to order.
They are under new ownership this year but the food is just as good. It was very good. Im glad they still take there time to make everything fresh. Would recommend it.
The most authentic Cuban restaurant in the city. Byob. Parking is tough but it’s worth coming here. Good sized portions.
Omg where was this hidden gem all these years?? We came recommended by a Cuban friend. The food is amazing, on point, well seasoned and delicious! Get the appetizer for 2 it’s so good and the ropa Vieja was rich, the fish had this amazing red sauce you can eat it by itself, it came With rice and beans and maduros. Did I say large portions? You are welcomed by a nice waitress who brings warm pan con mantequilla. We will definitely come back to try other dishes. Keep up the good job D Cuba!
Have eaten here before but Today I ordered for pick and they were very rude No need for that since you think they need the business cause of the virus I work transportation industry and was called to work to go do something right away so I called to see status of order she hung up phone on me not coming here again take my money somewhere else.
