Pueblito Viejo

Pueblito Viejo #2 takes its cue from the original in Chicago, serving up delicious homemade Colombian dishes in a saloon-style setting that transports you to Barranquilla. Inspired by a Colombian folk song, owner Gonzalo Rodriguez opened his second restaurant in 2003. Succulent arepas with Colombian sausage and pork rinds are the standout appetizers. For the main course, we recommend the churrasco "puebilto viejo en tabla," a butterfly grilled skirt steak served with fried sweet plantains, cassava, and salted boiled potatoes. If you plan on going on a Friday or Saturday after 9 p.m., there is a $20 minimum per person to get a table.
