This was an enjoyable, inexpensive place to eat. Nothing fancy and no bar (only beer/wine). The service was delightful and our food was delicious. We had the roasted pork. It came with rice and the most delicious plantains. Yum!

We stopped in while spending the night to fly out of Fort Lauderdale the next day. We were sent there by the hotel stall asking for local cuisine in the area. The restaurant is very informal and this is not where you want to go if you are looking for atmosphere. However if you are looking for some really good... More

Hey folks this is good old family cooking. Not fancy but well worth the effort to walk from our hotel. Looks like most of the regular clientele are Cuban so that means that this is authentic. Never eaten Cuban but was pleasantly surprised at the quality, freshness and presentation of the food. First time eating Plantains and I liked them.... More

Just down the driveway and across a through fare is Las Vegas 8. When travelling through Florida, I often pick my hotel by the distance it is from a Cuban restaurant. This time, I wasn't disappointed. Excellent food and a friendly staff. Well worth seeking it out

We enjoyed our dinner at Las Vegas. A very moderately priced meal with something a bit different than the typical restaurant. We would definitely go back. Service and food were both great!

The service was friendly, but the food was ok to poor. Chicken was dry, the empanadas greasy, and the Papa Rellena seem bland, dry, with little meat. I won't return. The Empanadas and Papa Rellena is tastier at the local publix market.

I absolutely get some of the best Cuban dishes while visiting S FL. I especially love their Vaca Frita. I have had it other places but every time I have it here it is moist and tastes great. Along w/ black beans & rice, and plantains it is a great meal.
