Las Tablas: "Columbian Steakhouse" Las Tablas Tip by TRimer

Las Tablas, Chicago: 4 reviews and 1 photos

  Outside Las Tablas on Lincoln Avenue

My friends love to have group dinners here. It is a BYOB place that serves lots of meat. There is always a line on the weekends. The tables are fairly close together so you often feel like you are dining communally (in other words, not a great place for a date).

Las Tablas is the creation of Jorge Suarez, who came to Chicago from Fusagasuga, Colombia, in 1985. The name comes from the wooden boards that the entrees are served on.

Favorite Dish: The menu sports many combos, which means that you can go with chicken and calamari, pork and calamari, steak and squid, pork and squid, shrimp and steak, and so on.

If you want to try something awesome, give the "bistec a caballo" a try. Two fried eggs are perched atop a pan-fried slab of tender, flavorful rib-eye with yuca and fried potato. All of this gets another zap of flavor when lavished with a tangy criolla sauce (onion and tomato).
