perfect food and plentiful

We stopped in for lunch last Saturday (1/11/14) and they were having a pulled pork buffet. We ordered arroz con pollo and it was terrific. Couldn't finish it. Very pleasant servers in this family owned place. If we lived close, we eat here often.

Good place to bring a group to. Could expand a bit on things for the kids. Service is hit or miss, depending on who is serving you...

We found Padrino's to be an excellent place to get some really good Cuban home-cooked food that we haven't enjoyed in a long time. All the traditional favorites are on the menu and, from what we tasted, were all fantastic. Highly recommended.

These recipes are the real deal. The Cuban classics are consistently cooked to perfection in this family owned restaurant. We always leave happy and full. The lunch buffet is a good value and great way to sample many dishes. The view of water fountain and palms adds to the authentic atmosphere.
