“Fantastico!”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

As with other readers, this restaurant was recommended by a friend. After having eaten there 6 or 7 times in the past 3 months, I can say I've never been disappointed. We tend to order the special of the day and haven't tried the Cuban sandwiches or any of the many other offerings. Daily specials are in the $9-10 range and typically come with rice (yellow or white), black beans, yucca or plantains, and hot pressed Cuban bread. The specials are the same Monday through Saturday, depending on the day of the week (the restaurant is closed on Sundays). Be sure to try a cafe con leche (Cuban coffee with milk), too -- served in the Cuban style (with sugar) unless you ask for it to be left out. I've been told that the desserts are great, but haven't tried them. This is a family run business and the cooking reflects that - with delicious meals served for lunch & dinner. There is a limited breakfast menu. Beer and wine are available. Portion sizes are generous and no one goes away hungry! Service is efficient and very friendly, and there's never a wait for a booth or table. Give it a try for delicious Cuban food!

“Decent sandwich”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

This place was recommended by a Cuban family that I am friends with. I went there for lunch and of course ordered the traditional Cuban sandwich. I must admit that I was a little disappointed. It took longer than I thought it would to be served, which is ok, but there wasn't much to it. I saw other things on the menu like some rice dishes that might be worth trying.

“Not the best ”
Reviewed 20 December 2013 via mobile

I can honestly say that publix deli has a better pressed Cuban then this place. They do have good prices. Now the chicken and yellow rice was awesome and their cafe con leche is out of this world.

“Perfect all the time. Delicious Cubans and more..”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 via mobile

I have had lunch and dinner here many times and have never been disappointed. The Cubans (the sandwich) are fantastic. The Chicken and yellow rice, fried plantations and black beans today was great. If you're in the area and hungry this makes a great stop.
