I had Sofrito Mama's for lunch with coworkers recently. Jason, who appears to be the owner, greeted us and helped make suggestions on what to order. This really is a take-out place, as there is no indoor seating. There is several tables out front that are well shaded, though.

I had the roast pork and white rice/beans. It was delicious. The pork was high-quality, with almost no fatty pieces. For $7, the portion size was outstanding. My coworkers had empanadas, which they said were great as well.

We will definitely be regulars there from now on!

This is an awesome family run business. It's a small little shop but the food there creates a BIG appetite. They cook and serve their food daily so you are always guaranteed fresh food. The people who run the business have amazing smiles and warmth. This is a must try for Sarasota :)
