Last minute decision to eat out on a weekday night. Arrived in time for the second set from the Cuban band.

Good mojitos, but I'd imagine even better on Mondays when they're on special. Lechón asado was simply amazing: perfectly seasoned and clearly slow cooked to perfection.

What was stupendous was watching the other patrons dance to the Cuban music. Man these folks were styling. Our toes were tapping too, but not enough to get the spouse up out of the seat.

Seem to recall they are open later, which is great for Burbank. Slightly off-putting that it's in a strip mall, but hey, the music and food more than makes up for that!

This place is a notch above its predecessor...also a Cuban restaurant.The room appears brighter and the service was prompt and friendly. My roast pork was good and the garlic chicken got a nod from our companion, but my daughter found the Cuban sandwich disappointing. Regret we didn't try the $4 mojitos. Overall, a better than average rating, but willing give it another shot.

Great food , great price, $4 mojitos, but the service at lunch time was very slow due to only one server.
