“Pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Great Cuban sandwich! Best one I've had in East Tennessee. The maduros and tostones (fried plantains) were excellent. Can't wait to go back and try other things on the menu. Very friendly service.

“Small Place, Big on Flavor!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The Cuban sandwich reminds me of our family vacations to Tampa where we always visited Ybor City to eat Cuban food!! Past restaurants in our area have tried to tweek a Cuban sandwich which just wasn't the traditional sandwich including even changing the bread!! This is a true delicious Cuban sandwich! There is a small limited menu and I do enjoy trying the fried pastries especially with guava!

“Authentic cuban meals”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Not an extensive menu, but still wished we could have tried one of everything. Very small, hole in the wall spot, but worth the search!

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

I had lunch here today after reading the reviews. Yep- a very small place with a few booths and tables. I took other reviewers advice and ordered the small Cuban sandwich with red beans and rice. It was really tasty! There's a limited menu with Piccadillo, pulled pork, Cuban sandwiches, and a few other items. Good food at a good price. I'll be back!
