Maybe I was expecting more exciting, different and innovative fare. While the food was certainly good, there wasn't the anticipated novelty of Cuban/Argentinian cuisine that I was hoping for. The Cuban Pork sandwich was just an average example - no abundance of or especially flavor-packed...More

We stopped in due to the location to Marbles. The food was good and the staff were nice. I really liked their french fries and the lunch food was good. The place is dark, cozy and crowded with furniture.
