Nice Cuban food.. Not the best or most memorable but good food and good price.. It's a shame it's in an undesirable area.. I hated the setting.. It's the only thing that keeps me away..

I come here anytime I have a taste for yuca...or a Cuban sandwich...or Materva...or all of the above. Tiny with checkerboard tablecloths, simple menus and you order in Espanol. Perfect. I have been eating here for years and I don't care that I have to...More

Visited here based on reviews & to explore another taste of Vegas. Disappointed somewhat as food incredibly bland, lacking variety of flavor. Tried tamales, yuca, lomo & black beans.

The food is excellent but it's hard to get past the less-than-stellar interior decorating. I had the cuban sandwich and my wife had the camarones enchilado and both were very delicious. The fact that they can't liven up the decor just makes you wonder if...More

Best value for Cuban food on all of Vegas. I've had the roast pork, Cuban sandwich, and boliche; all were fabulous and reasonably priced. The facility is very Spartan by Vegas standards, and the neighborhood is dicey. Try to look past all that and focus...More
