If you're looking for authentic Mexican food don't go here. However, if you're looking for a nice environment, good service, and great food then this is the place for you! The food was amazing. I got a carne asada cemita is was a lot of food and delicious. I'm not sure what kind of cheese they put on it but... More

I have heard only excellent things about this place and wanted to go here after my friends raved about it all the time. I was in town and when someone suggested it I could not say yes quick enough. I got the steak, my friend got the chicken, and we split it. Both were awesome. I have heard other sandwiches... More

Really didn't know what to expect when reading reviews online but was pleasantly surprised by the interior and the vibe the restaurant exuded. Our group ordered five sandwiches and all of them were so good.

Good Mexican in west loop market. Fast food atmosphere but sit down prices. Food is worth it, especially the roast pork. Comes in taco or sandwich venues.

My family and I ate here recently and were blown away. We are from Colorado and have traveled all over the USA south west and Mexico. The tacos here are by far just as good as anything authentic we have had. The service is quick and the place is clean. The margaritas are great and not too sugary. Even my... More

Truly unique sandwiches, excellent flavors, and at the time I frequented it, Cemitas was family run. I must revisit it; their bread is truly incomparable.

In an area abound with high end and hip places, Cemitas Puebla was a fresh breath of fresh air. Cemitas are Mexican sandwiches and you can choose a variety of meats. Comes with a mountain of quesa fresca. It was perfect sitting on the patio with our cemita, ceviche, and jicama slaw - reminiscent of food truck style eats.

We loved the Atomica! Huge sandwich - great to split! We ate at the Fulton Market location. The three sauces provided to enjoy with our sandwich were excellent. We liked the spiciest of the three. Loved this place! If you want to go to a location other than Fulton Market, make sure it is still there. It may have closed.
