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!

We wanted to try something different and since we're from Hawaii and don't have to many Cuban restaurants but we do have a lot of Puerto Ricans who do home cooked meals, we decided to try this one. I had the grilled chicken paella and it was excellent, this was the best paella that I've ever tried. The service here... More

I don't have any experience with Cuban food until now, and everything served here was absolutely delicious. I tried a 'house special' consisting of their signature pork, and was delighted to see that it was lean and appetizing on the plate. It was very tender and had a delicious spice unlike anything I have tried before. We enjoyed it with... More

The pork was excellent, the beans and rice tasty. If the Cuban sandwich had been a bit more inspired, we would have called it "excellent." Nice but rather dull off the shelf - consider extra pickle and mustard. That's what we'll do next time, and there will definitely be a next time!
