This sibling location of Clybourn Avenue’s popular Cuban carryout joint is nearly a spitting image of the original—same toasted Cuban sandwiches, same flaky empanadas, same garlicky yuca chips, same potent café con leche. But even if the tiny interior, with its newspaper-covered walls, elicits the same claustrophobia, the big draws here are the spacious front and back patios, tropical ambience and mixers to turn BYO liquor into mojitos.

Love the ambiance! Best ropa vieja...there's literally no dish I wouldn't recommend. My favorite is their butcher special with meats, seafood, rice and beans gives you a nice combination of flavors. Simply Sabroso!
To top it off it's BYOB best of both worlds.
So I’m kind of obsessed with 90 Miles. While the weekly pig roast doesn’t turn out to be my thing, (not big on pork) I love everything else I’ve had here and keep coming back to the Ropa Vieja. Most of all, I love the ambiance of their lively patio where you can bring your own six pack and take a little vacation from the Midwest.
Cute BYOB spot on the edge of Bucktown/Logan. Their patio is the main attraction, it’s enclosed so during the winter it feels like a mini tropical getaway. The prices are a bit high on some dishes but the food is great. The flash-fried pork dish on their dinner menu with onions is juicy and wonderful. Make sure to bring some wine or a bottle of rum and order their pre-made Sangria and Mojito pitchers!
