nothing fancy, in a strip mall. amazing flavors! this place is the real deal. as with most Cuban places, it has a wide range of menu items. I had the pork/rice/beans and loved it. husband had fish filet/rice/beans - excellent. happy hour most of the day. highly recommend.

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.

We were staying in the hotel right across the road from Las Vegas 8 and needed a quick dinner, so we stopped in. I had the Ropa Vieja with black beans and rice. It was delicious, as was their bread. I'd definitely go back!

OMG I was so ahppy when we found this place. Food was excellent, price great atmosphere left a bit to be desired. Too much like a catering hall inside. Service not with a smile for sure. But would go back to try some other foods. Oh forgot to mention the great priced drinks were really low on alchohol.
