Breakfast, lunch or dinner - this is your place. Omelets to order. The Best Pressed Cuban toast. Potatoes cooked with onions & green peppers was my favorite. Cafe con leche in small, medium or large. Lunch & dinner you go down a buffet line that they put on a plate for you. You get a lot for the money.

For some of South Tampa's finest Cuban food, this place is the best. It's cheap, simple and they are open for breakfast until 8:00 p.m. One of our favs

One of my favorite Cuban Cafeterias. The food is top notch and the portions will have you asking for take out containers. Always friendly excellent service. I've been going to this restaurant for over 10 years. Local favorite.

great Cuban sandwich you must eat it quick don't want a cuban to sit in the foil for a long time, they are better the quicker you eat them.

Ive been looking for a nice cuban restaurant to get my steak milanesa fix. I drove over into Tampa from Brandon and the milanesa was horrible. Most of my meal was barely warm and the milanesa was bland with a few peas and eggs on top of it. they did make my daughter a quesadilla but theres no kids food... More

Fine hearty Spanish fare in a genuine surround with friendly service always. Nice selection of Spanish-oriented dishes in a cafeteria-like setting. Authentic, friendly place to eat. Outstanding Cuban sandwiches.

I don't get to eat Cuban food that often, so when I do I want it to be authentic and Pipo's is it!! The black beans and rice were perfect and you get a generous portion of everything. The best was the beef "old clothes" dish (don't know the Cuban name for this) but it is not on the buffet.... More

Pipo's is one of those restaurants on my "regular rotation" for lunch. The food is real Tampa food. Roast pork, black beans and yellow rice, plantains and cuban bread. Finish it off with a flaky guava pastry. This is more food than I can usually eat in one sitting, so I always ask for a box. Prices are VERY reasonable... More
