Offering Latin American food that is equally authentic as it is affordable, the vibrantly colored, cozy Puesto has quickly become one of Lakeview's most beloved lunch spots. Here you'll find freshly mashed guacamole, incredible arepas (in particular, the Cuban Sandwich arepa and Mango Salsa and Queso Cotija arepa are not to miss), and a slew of soft drinks ranging from the standout espresso horchata to familiar favorites like Jarrito sodas. Despite being counter service and BYOB, the ambience is entirely welcoming -- don't be surprised if the owner personally introduces himself and asks how you're enjoying your meal.
