“Very good Cuban food. Not an overly ambitious menu for a Cuban restuarant.”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

Have eaten here a few times while visiting family due to convenience. If you are nearby, it is well worth a visit but not worth going too far out of your way. If you are in the Tampa area I strongly recommend La Teresita, but if you are in Ruskin don't miss this place. Very good Cuban food in a simple setting. They do a great Cuban sandwich. Very good ropa vieja with a unique tomato based sauce. Service is fast.

They allow you to purchase Cuban bread to go!

“If coming to Ruskin, you have to eat here. Awesome experience.”
Reviewed 12 July 2011

The restaurant is not much to look at on the outside if you are used to that. The staff is great and very friendly. Service was awesome. Food was to die for. I had the rice dish with chirizo, ham and chicken. My wife had the pork dish marinated in oranges. Both were very good. Had loads of food to take back to the hotel too, so portions were huge. We also had the deviled crab for appitizer, was way good. Would recomend this place to everybody.

“When you want good Cuban food”
Reviewed 13 June 2011

This is one of our favorite local spots for good Cuban food lunch or dinner. Best deviled crabs, Cuban sandwiches, roast pork, black beans and rice. Heck everything is good. They serve beer and wine, have excellent service and large portions. Little short on decor, but who cares.

“Taste of Cuban Food in Ruskin”
Reviewed 2 April 2011

The Ybor Grill is not located in Ybor City, but it an out skirt of Tampa called Ruskin. There are not many restaurants in this area, we ended up stumbling upon the Ybor Grill by chance. It is built out of an house, so it doesn't look like a restaurant. There are always tons of cars parked outside because it is a popular restaurant for the locals in the area.

Ask to be seated in the front dining area, it is better than getting sat in the back. The pitcher of Red Sangria is tasty and they serve with cinnamon sugar rimmed wine glasses. It was good that we got another pitcher before the main dishes.

While the Ybor Grill is not fancy, it actually serves up some pretty good food. Our favorites were the black beans and rice, the yucca, the plantains, the crab cake and the Ropa Vieja.
