Always our first meal in the Keys

Our first stop when visiting Key Largo is Dennys for a Cuban sandwich,medianoche and a beer. The pork was fantastic and the beer was cold.

We ducked in here during our journey down to key west to get out of the terrible weather. What a great little find. Pretty basic but the food was great and the coffee hot and sweet and the staff welcoming and friendly. Ate here again on our trip back to Miami.

We were excited to try Denny's after someone recommended it to us. We were very disappointed. The food was just average and quite bland. We expected some delicious flavors and were quite disappointed. Most people in our group got Cuban steak sandwiches, the rice and beans were by far the best thing on the menu. We also enjoyed the plantains.

We stopped here for lunch- we ordered plantains and a chicken empanada to start, both were good. My husband got the flank steak and I ordered the Cuban sandwich. His was good, mine was ok. The roasted pork on my sandwich was a bit on the dry side. The bread was crusty and soft as expected. Due to a misunderstanding... More

From the cafe con leche and cheese toast for breakfast, to the Rabo Encendido (oxtail in wine) this place is the real deal. A popular spot among the locals, and a definite return trip for us.

Only had the café con leche here so I can't speak to the food. It was ok but nothing special. I'd venture elsewhere if in the area again. The location can't be beat though.

The restaurant was dirty with a stained ceiling. The grouper was too tough and hard to chew. They did give half off that entree. There was only one other person eating in the restaurant at 6 in the evening. I feel that we should have known better.

I am a local gringo and have ate here several times with my latin wife and half latin kids. Its ok most of the time. Once or twice we did get day old dry pork which was terrible. However anytime I go by myself these people try to overcharge and short me on food. I went to pickup 5 pounds... More

My wife and I ate here for dinner. The food was very good and I really enjoyed the Cuban sandwich. I have eaten Cuban food most of my life and the food here exceeded my expectations.
