This place is AMAZING! Authentic HOME-MADE Cuban food. Best I've ever had and I'm from Miami, born and raised. I came to Lakewood for a week-long working vacation and I've eaten here every single day. Their pan con bistec is SO flavorful and their homemade Cuban bread is SO soft and so delicious. Everything is seasoned to perfection. Their arroz... More

Who would of thought to find the best lechon sandwich in Colorado?! Well it's here in Lakewood & we were lucky to find it on our way to Breckenridge. Family owned & staffed - very friendly; make you feel like part of the familia. We also had to eat some of their Cuban pastelitos - guayaba & guayaba con queso.... More

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.

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!!
