It's basically takeout (but delicious takeout!)

I truly enjoyed my one experience at 90 Miles, but it is not at all what I expected. The restaurant is tiny and is basically glorified takeout. There is a counter with maybe eight seats inside, and there is a small courtyard area outside with seating for maybe 20-30 people, depending on how tight... read more

I would be tempted to drive the 2 hours it takes me to get here just for the sauce they serve with the croquettas. YUM Friendly servers that are very willing to help you choose from the menu if you don't know what you want. We enjoyed sitting outside for this visit. I will be back - hopefully soon!

Outstanding, outstanding, outstanding!!!! The best Cuban food I have ever tasted. I mean there is not much more I can say, other than if you haven't been there, you need to check it out. I had a steak dish, which would have been fine, but the chimichurri sauce that came with it was outstanding. There is nothing bad at all... More

Everything was amazing. From the music being played to the food served, it was fantastic. I had a sandwich and it had everything I needed. Pork, bread, and other items which I could not name. The service was of exceptional quality and no service member was left with nothing to do. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

A friend of ours took us here. I didnt know what to expect at first. The staff was extremely friendly and willing to answer any questions we had about the menu. The food was very good. And the restaurant was clean. I would definatly go back to 90 Miles .

A co-worker told me about this place and I had to try it while I visited the area. When I first walked in the cashier was very friendly. I loved how she had professional manners and made my time enjoyable. I got the Cubano with Yuca Frita and Banana Chips. My co-worker got the Lechon and loved it also. The... More

This was a most pleasant experience in Cuban dining. We love Cuban food and were certainly not disappointed. The BYOB part is nice as you can bring the beverage of your choice without corkage. We will be back!

This cute little cafe is nothing fancy, but that adds to the charm. The vaca frita was EXCELLENT, the croquettas to-die-for and the chorizo empanada left me wanting more. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will definately be going back as soon as I can!

We had driven past this cafe as we were helping our daughter and son-in-law move into their new house in Logan Square and saw that it was packed. Now that we've eaten there I understand why it is so popular. When we went there a couple of nights later we started with appetizers of empanadas and pork tamal. They were... More

We gave this place two tries...and I really want to like it because it's so close to home and I love Cuban food... unfortunately it just misses on a lot of what they try to do. The tostones were extremely bland (and so were the plantain chips served with my sandwich). Surely a Cuban restaurant will do its namesake justice,... More
