For years, this mosaic-covered Mexican spot right under the 7 line on Roosevelt Ave has served Pueblan-style dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Starting at 8am, you can stop by for a basket of fresh breakfast pastries or a slice of rhubarb and strawberry pie. If you’re not a morning person, try the chicken enchiladas covered in mole poblano or jumbo shrimp stuffed with crab meat at one of their socially-distant sidewalk tables during lunch or dinner. Be sure to check out their Instagram before you visit, because that’s how you’ll hear about their weekend specials, like tamales and soft shell crab.

John Brown Smokehouse
While we enjoyed our time with John Brown Smokehouse, we didn’t quite go crazy over the BBQ the way others have. Though if you and your crew appreciate trays full of BBQ and massive bootfuls of beer, John Brown should be on the radar.
