I love Mambo's Chicken. It's what I always order. The salsa and maduros are great too. I don't like the desserts here except for the coffee drinks.

I have been here twice. Both due to business trips to Glendale. Now it is our go to place the first night we are in town. I seen this place on Diners, Drive ins and Dives and wanted to go. I have not had anything bad. I don't know much about Cuban food but one of my coworkers has been coaching me on what to get. My favorite is the roast pork, black beans with rice and the tostones. I look forward to my next trip.

A friend and I went there for dinner. We had a good meal for a reasonable price. The service was excellent. My buddy had chicken and I had ropa vieja which were both good. We had an after dinner coffee that was wonderful. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I ordered ropa vieja and it was delicious. It was moist and flavorful. The rice and beans were the best I ever had. The service could not have been any better.

Walking into this unassuming little restaurant you are greeted by "hola" "welcome, take a seat anywhere". We've all heard that before and assume that this is another little cafe, with mediocre food. Well, get your tastebuds ready for authentic Cuban Cuisine. Mambo's does not disappoint.
We ordered the Shrimp in tostones as an appetiser and were pleasantly surprised with the blend of firm tostone and the crunchy pieces of shrimp mixed with what appears to be pico de gallo.
Next we ordered the Mambo Pork dish for Hubby who stopped talking and just ate. I personally do not eat pork and thus ordered the Mambo Steak meal.
Cuban's know no limit to graciousness and feeding folk. Besides the steak and tostones the meal comes with rice and succulent black beans, a staple in Cuban.
We love you Mambos.... you guys rock !
