Got a late-night craving for masa de puerco and congri? A sweet tooth for some flan? Chico's has you covered. For the past 30 years, this Hialeah eatery has been adding Cuban-American spice to the diner concept. You can get breakfast, lunch, and dinner 24 hours a day, and the seven-page menu usually features at least a dozen daily specials between $6 and $9, including typical favorites such as picadillo criollo, bistec empanizado, and ropa vieja. Other delectable comfort foods include an omelet loaded with fried plantains and Chico's special fried rice. Also noteworthy is the beer selection, with bottles of Modelo Especial, Modelo Negro, Sapporo, and Kalik chilling in the drink coolers. Directions for non-Hialeah denizens: Chico's is easily accessible via NW 67th Avenue, which turns into West 12th Avenue once you enter the city limits.
