Let me just say that I am not normally a buffet type of person. I went to Padrino's not knowing thet have a buffet for lunch. They have pork, chicken, beef and fish as well as soups and salads. I decided to try the buffet so I could sample several items and while it was good it didn't blow me... More

The Cuban cuisine is excellent. The presentation is colorful and innovative! For lunch, they offer a buffet which is overwhelming. Ordering off the menu proves to be excellent as well. I ordered a Mojito, which was as good as I have had!

We are regulars. We quite often order very simply the la completa ( black beans rice and platanos). The food is consistently delicious. They have special mojitos they make with fresh fruit. Highly recommend this local Cuban restaurant. The decor is nothing fancy.

I have been a customer for about a decade. The food, service, and price have been consistent. In the decade that I have been a customer I have never been unhappy with the food or service and that is more than what I can say about most restaurants these days. In fact there is only one other restaurant in the... More

The Padrino owes me a favor. Not very good. Bland croquetas, "tamal Cubano,"and empenadas. Of the Lechon Asado the pork was extremely dry. Also, all of the items we ordered were 3-4$ more than what tripadvisor menu showed. 18.99 for my churrasco steak. Bogus. A real lover of food will pass this place up. Its food is bland and prepared... More

This restaurant is within 10 minutes from my home but I hadn't eaten there in quite a while. This was a mistake on my part. The food is really good at a very reasonable price. I like chicken with black beans and rice (with a side of plantains) and was not disappointed. My wife had virtually the same dish but... More

Padrino's promises to be a local Cuban with authentic flavor. But it turns out to be far too ordinary. My advice is travel further, and get the real thing.

Having previously lived in this town, each and every visit I make sure to get back there for dinner. Still love the food, prices are so reasonable that I am amazed it isn't standing room only . Decor could use a bit of sprucing up after all these years. Menu selections are authentic and entrees are hearty portions. Service is... More
