The fried yuca was the best along with the fried bananas. However, the man dishes were sort of bland. The average meal costs around $11 without drink. The added extension room with the bar is freezing so make sure you sit in the front room where you order the food.

The most welcoming restaurant I've ever been to. Offered tastes of their specialities as we perused the menu. Terrific, tasty food, generous portions. Can't wait to return!

I went in here for lunch after seeing the reviews. This is not the kind of place you come to for the decor, it is a little cafe in a strip mall. The reason to come in is the authentic, at least to this non-Cuban, delicious food. They have a small but effective menu, plates, sandwiches and the sides you... More

We have been going to this restaurant for at least a year now. It is one of the best places that we have been! The staff is so nice and welcoming and the food is top-notch. I can never decide between a Cuban sandwich and the steak sandwich because they are both so delicious. You will definitely need to follow... More

Loved the food, the person who took my order had great recommendations. This was our first time ordering Cuban food and it was wonderful. The empanadas were absolutely delicious. We will be back!!

I was born and raised in Miami and lived there a total of 20 years. With over 1,000,000 Cuban-Americans living in Miami as well, I know good Cuban food. This place nails it. Delicious and inexpensive, this place will satisfy your hankering for proper Cuban food in Colorado. Only detractor - location. It's in the middle of a strip mall... More

Can't pronounce the meals but everything was excellent. Just do yourself a favor and go. You will not be disappointed. Oddly it reminded me of the food I had in Costa Rica.
