I've been coming to this restaurant for over 20 years. Like all restaurants it's had its share of ups and downs. One thing that hasn't changed is its food quality and cleanliness. Food great and inexpensive. The staff polite and helpful. My favorite dish is their Mofongo, which is made in the "Old School" tradition. If you're looking mostly for... More

This place is great if you're looking for some authentic Cuban food. Everything there is freshly prepared and delicious. They have daily specials that are amazing. Also everything is very reasonably priced so it's great for dining on a budget as well. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone that loves Cuban food.

Now, I'll admit I'm biased. The owners are close friends of mine. I have been visiting this restaurant for over 20 years. I moved away but when in town, I make a beeline for La Gran Via. Authentic Cuban food, great service, reasonable prices. I was a customer first. Then after all my repeated visits here, I then became friends.... More

This is THE BEST Cuban eatery in town. Many would go on to argue El Artesano or El Pheonix Bakery are up there but by no comparison do this place justice. Their empanadas are to die for as well as their croquetas and prepared sandwiches. They have excellent rice and beans/ bistec empanizado and other traditional Hispano dishes. Another plus... More

A dying place. Sad!!!!! It's old, menu, look, it's like the owner gave up. It's sad because it's been here forever. I still consider them better then it's neighbor El Artesano. Real good Cuban sandwich, empanadas and the food is not bad but it's sadly dying. I'll miss it!!!!
