Carribean food – I like the food especially the jibara loca it was good. I never tired it going to try and make it at home. As far as these other reviews they sound way too obvious that they are ppl who have a relationship with the owners get real with those reviews. But it is good sad part is I waited 30 minutes for food. I was real kind because it was an older lady trying to serve 7 ppl by herself because some guy didnt show up well it was nine ppl but still. Need to hire some more servers to help because ppl will leave.
Another con is that they dont serve you the food atleast when i was there I have to go ge tmy plate from the counter and take it back. So unprofessional horrible service.
FYI- Puerto Rican Dominican Cuban and any other islands all this is Caribbean food not just Puerto Rican recipes may be slightly different but its all the same at the end very few distinctions and by the way they eat some of the same foods in Africa too.
Overall good Jibara.
Finally, a Puerto Rican spot that got it ALL right! – I am HUGE fan of Puerto Rican food. I finally found a spot with DELICIOUS food and great service. I recommend the Jibara sandwich. Papi's Cafe is so yummy and so affordable, you will be tempted to stop cooking! The Cuban sandwich is FABULOUS! I guarantee if you go once, you'll be hooked. Oh yeah, did I mention their yummy cafe con leche? Why pay 5 bucks for an expensive latte? PAPIS has it all!
Tasty Delight – Your tastebuds will not be disappointed with a taste of Puerto Rico and Cuba all mixed together. I personally enjoy the Pernil Sandwich with cheese, but it tastes just as good alone. Papi's is family owned and ran and has a friendly atmosphere. Treat yourself and your tastebuds and head over to Papi's Cafe today.
Best Miami Cuban sandwich in Chicago, never find a sandwich for that price with so much meat (UNBELIEVABLE) – Papi's is a place that everyone who goes there will find a very friendly staff and a good clean restaurant, but most of all the food is the best I've ever had (good Puerto Rican food). I've been to Puerto Rico and Miami and have tried Cuban food as well, but Papi's has made my breakfast sandwich of choice the best (lots of ham and steak and egg all together on cuban toast and I always get Miracle Whip on mine) and the price is cheap, a sandwich like that normally costs $7 or more and for dinner my choice is the Miami Cubano, I have 3 words DE-LICK-CIOUS. Thank you Papi's for being close to my house and inexpensive and most of all Good and filling.
Continued Success!!!! (LOVE IT)
