Great place for a good lunch huge deviled crab and stuffed potatoes, outside seating. The line will get long but well worth the wait.

Tomatoes on a Cuban? At one of the most iconic sandwich shops in town...amazing. Still, I have to rate it 5 stars because, well, just because it must be experienced. And judging by the crowd of regulars, it's an experience they rate as 5 star as well. But really, tomatoes on a Cuban? What's up,with that??

My husband and I shared a stuffed potato and a devil crab..we were stuffed to the gills. Yes, they were wonderful. The devil crab was FULL of this outrageous amount of lump crab meat..amazing. We also took a cuban to go and it was the best we've ever had.
We live in Bradenton and purposely made the trip there; it was def worth it! Great food and service.

Don't expect the Hilton. This is good honest quality food. The devil crabs is what everyone raves about. We had the breakfast which was ok. Word of advice familiarise yourself with the menu before ordering. My brother was so confused when ordering he just agreed with the lady behind the counter and we had a lucky dip breakfast. It was one of the funniest things I've seen.

I had one large deviled crab which was as big as a softball! My husband ordered a Philly Steak it was a whole filet enough for 2/3 meals depending on your appetite. If in Tampa again definitely would go back.
