$9 -- Cemitas Puebla: 'Phenomenal' Lunch for 2, Reg. $20

Sold out - This deal was published August 26, 2013 and sold out September 29, 2013.
By Eddy Rivera
The cemita -- a sandwich that hails from Puebla, Mexico -- has drawn praise from Guy Fieri (Food Network) and the "Hungry Hound" Steve Dolinsky (ABC7).

Why we love it

  • The cemitas are "phenomenal" (Zagat) and "divine" (Huff Post)
  • "A one-of-a-kind Mexican sandwich" (Food Network)
  • ABC7 Chicago says, "they come from all over ... to get a bite of [it]"
  • Travel + Leisure: This cafe is "all about authentic flavors"
  • This Humboldt Park gem earns an "excellent" rating (24) on Zagat
