Better than Miami!

Talk about excellent American-Cuban food! The plantains are divine! The Cuban sandwich is just right! Must try everything they have to offer! The location is in a King Soopers strip mall, but don't let that stop you from eating (or taking out) a taste of Miami!

We were happy with the food here. Big flavors and enormous portions. The dining room was pretty small and there were no tables for us so we took the food to go.

This was like going to a friend's house for dinner. So friendly and open from the moment you walk in the door to the moment you leave. My friends, I tell you, you will not get a more welcoming experience. I grew up in Tampa and have had my share of Cuban food. We had the mojo sandwich and the... More

Ate here on a whim to try something different. My wife and I are always in the lookout for small, unique eateries. At least on that scale this restaurant qualifies. The limited menu seems to be as authentic Cuban as possible in Colorado. The "sason" is just right. Portions are ample. The place is busy enough it might be hard... More

This place was very small! Appears to be family run. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Sarah and I ate here before going to a concert at Red Rocks, we had gone to Puerto Rico this past winter and were sort of on the look out for a Caribbean style eatery . This place scored a hit! We both... More

Ok there are no servers, no white linens, no adult beverages. But this is the best $22.00 we ever spent on dinner. With desert and drinks!!! Yes you order at the counter. However, this food was incredible. Especially if you love pork and cuban food. The service was very good for counter service.

Muy bueno! We dined at Frijoles with friends who have recently been to Cuba, and they gave this place a thumbs up! Frijoles is a small family cafe with 6-18 tables. Food is prepared old school, family style. Price is great on the wallet, quality of each dish is excellent. Most of the menu are sandwiches, but there are entrees... More

My God the steak and onions are to die for! I was disappointed I had to leave and couldn't stay to chat more with the restaurant owners. Great people and the best example of true Cuban food you will get in the west. Yummy!
