The wait and lines at this place would make one assume that the food and drink in here must be the best. I, on the other hand, believe that the lines of eager eaters waiting here are those who have not been properly introduced to tapas.
The choices here are plenty and wide. Ranging from the ubiquitous garlic potato salad to short ribs, braised in rioja (spanish red wine).
If it's a large group you must please, Cafe BaBa Reeba will fit the bill. Looking for a romantic evening with someone special? Look somewhere else. Cafe Ba Ba Reeba is loud and boisterous. It is in Lincoln Park, you know?
