After outgrowing their extremely popular food truck, The Jibarito Stop opened a restaurant in Pilsen in 2015. Their specialty, the jibarito, comes in four varieties including steak, slow-roasted lechón, vegetarian, and vegan (and they have a vegan potato salad and a vegan side of beans). Their jibaritos also come in convenient half sizes for each option. The woman-owned business also serves piñon, a sweet and savory Puerto Rican-style casserole, and a brightly flavored mango coconut salad topped with a cilantro and tamarind dressing. The seating at the front of the restaurant gives you a raised view of the 18th street “L” that elevates (pun intended) the whole dining experience.
