The daily specials are alway delicious and very filling. Sandy's Special Sandwich is enough fort two. One on the best Cubans on the island. Prices are fair. Food is good. Don't have to wait long. Their is even a bench outside to eat at.

Another must do in Key West. Excellent menu of Latin delights, but famous for its authentic Cubano. Grabbed a sandwich to go for a lunch on the beach.

These sandwiches are stuffed with meats, cheeses, and FLAVOR. We stop here for Cuban Sandwiches to take when we go fishing for the day. Nothing fancy, cash only, nowhere to sit really, but one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. For less then $10, you will not find a better lunch time meal!!

You will notice that this place is always busy, and that is because it is one of the best places in town. Do not miss out. This place has some of the most delicious sandwiches I have ever had.

We dropped in for lunch and shared the Cuban and black beans/rice which was enough for the both of us. Not on the Duval strip but worth the walk/drive/bike ride or however you get there. Cool little walk up joint while there is a place to stand and eat we took it to go. Seemed pretty authentic to us but... More

We walked to Sandy's every morning of our visit to start our day with their Cuban coffee! Tastes like hot melted coffee ice cream with that amazing caffeine kick. Terrific!

Went for the first time and the food was delicious! We had the sandy special sandwich and the steak and cheese. Will definitely order the steak and cheese on our next visit and try the Cuban too. We also tried the beef stew - tasty. They are open 24hours and have delivery too!
