Good Cuban with Large Portions

We selected based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. The restaurant is larger and nicer ambiance than we expected - waiters in vests, glass (not plastic) cups & glasses. Service was quite attentive. The menu is large and extensive covering breakfast through dinner. We had a Sunday lunch and... read more

We haven't been back to this restaurant in months, and I say that just in case other, more recent reviews give it a better rating-- in which case, go with what they say, I suppose. But this restaurant moved to its new, bigger, roomier, better-parking situation place a few years back-- right across the street-- and the quality of the... More

Going to Molina's Ranch restaurant in Hialeah, Florida tricks the mind into thinking that you are sitting in a restaurant in Havana, Cuba. Everything abut this place is the real deal. Not a fancy high price yuppie place, just an authentic local place to get real, genuine delicious Cuban food at ridiculous prices. The waiters are dressed in vests and... More

Whenever we are in the mood for real Cuban food we take a drive to this restaurant. Has been around for years. Food is first rate . The plantain mariquitas on their own are worth the drive. Great fresh seafood , excellent service. On the weekends they have a special cordero contramaestre . tender lamb in a special sauce out... More

This restaurant used to be excellent and now, not so much many other places nearby that will beat it hands down. Food mediocre, service not so great and prices have definitely gone up

The place was very clean, the climax appropriated, the service excellent and the food exceptional. The price for the entire service of 6 persons was very cheap.

Been coming here for decades. Consistently delicious, and fast, professional service. Can't go wrong with the churrasco, vaca frita, fish chunks, soups, salads and many others. And don't forget to start off with their perfectly sliced, warm, crunchy mariquitas! We always finish off with a cortadito, which is the richest, creamiest coffee ever.

This place was highly recommended by coworkers and I can see why. Ate here two days in a row while in town for work and will definitely return. Shredded beef with rice and plantains one day and just the chicken Ceasars the next but so tasty. Staff was very gracious as well.

Never a disappointment. Great food always! Fast service, friendly service, just plain friendly. My fave is the churrasco & masitas de puerco.
