1935 W. Chicago


One of my aunts once told me--in an attempt to keep me out of mischief--that nothing good ever happened after midnight. Clearly she'd never been to the Saturday-night buffet at Cleo's. The grub gets wheeled out at 11 PM, but it's best to let the vultures get the first couple rounds of cheesy quesadillas and potato skins. Around midnight gooey pesto and tangy, hot BBQ pizzas usually appear, followed by hummus and pita. The food goes fast, but the buffet is continually refilled until 1 AM. Your best bet is to sit in the back booths or on the patio; the trek from the front can get embarrassing after the fifth or sixth pass.
