Every time my Filipina wife and I need a Filipino food fix, we travel down from Wisconsin to see family in Chicago and eat here. Cheerful atmosphere, friendly folks running the place. It's a buffet, so don't expect the food to be like you got at home. A wide variety of ethnic specialties and lechon on the weekend. The lechon... More

This is a restaurant that serves Filipino food - buffet style. It has a good spread of desserts, appetizers, soups and regional dishes. The main attraction is definitely the roasted pig (lechon and crispy pata). The place is popular within the Filipino community since they have a separate area for private party functions. Having said this, I find most dishes... More

I can't believe I've been coming to Chicago for 4 years and have never heard of this place. I love Filipino food, but couldn't find a place that served good food for a good price...until now. All you can eat popular Filipino dishes with great condiments and great dessert options! If you love Filipino food, but just don't want to... More

Went here because it was recommended by the people from the Philippine embassy. So we took the drive and try it. The food was pretty good for the price. A lot of choices. They even had lechon and crispy pata on the table. Some of the food i know was freshly made, but there are 2 or 3 dishes that... More

We celebrated our anniversary at Little Quiapo over the August 4 weekend and reserved the banquet room. The banquet buffet came with 9 dishes, three desserts and unlimited soda. We also ordered a lechon (roast pig). I've had individually better dishes but overall the food is very tasty. Some of our guests had never had Filipino food and it was... More

Everything you expect from a filipino restaurant is there. The selection was very small though. My filipino mother and ALL of her friends LOVE this place. We are from St. Louis and we don't know of any filipino buffets here, so they always visit this place when they are in town. My husband and I though think that I make... More

Visitng Chicago, I wanted to get some authentic filipino food. I found two choices and chose Little Quiapo because the website made it look so authentic, traditional. The other restaurant looked too fancy and uppity. I was a little bummed though because I found the food a bit overcooked ... my family and I didn't show up until evening, so... More

If you are craving halo-halo and kare-kare on this part of the world then Little Quiapo is where you should be. I don't know what is the secret of their Pancit Palabok (rice noodles with shrimp sauce) but you just need a small serving for you to feel full. The variety of Filipino food is quite impressive so you could... More

Found this place through an ad in a Filipino chicago newspaper. Had to give it a try. Little hard to get to since it is off the freeway but it was worth the trip. So many authentic Filipino delicacies...crispy pata, lechon paksiw, lumpia...everything was great. Only problem was that we got so full on lunch we had no room for... More
