Late night dinner with friends.

This is a great restaurant, it has great Cuban food, at good prices and nice portions. They have many specials and the "tamal en cazuela" is one of their specials that they have everyday, and it's always very good. I go to this place often because they are always full, but have good service and... read more

I went to get a takeout breakfast. The lady took my card to the back and came back with receipt. I didnt suspect anything until i got a call from my credit card company that someone had charged stuff to my card a few hours later. BEWARE!!!

I am amazed by some of the reviews I read here. I have come to this restaurant dozens of times during the past few years, and if there's one thing I can say about this place it is CONSISTENCY. This is probably the BEST Cuban sandwich in Miami, and that is saying a lot !!! The food is wonderful and... More

After a cruise out of Miami we stumbled upon this Cuban restaurant and wanted to try the local food. We talked to our neighboring table who said it was his favorite and we just thought it was OK. The sandwiches were OK, but the pastry was great. Our waitress didn't speak much English, which made it difficult. Don't think we... More

Luis Galindo Latin American (LGLA) has been around for quite some time. The restaurant/cafeteria offers typical Cuban fare at very reasonable prices. On a recent trip to Miami (January 2014), my partner and I had breakfast and lunch there several times. The menu does not vary much, although there are specials every day. First, breakfast. You can have a very... More

The bakery dining area of this popular Cuban restaurant is a clean, bright place to start your day. Cafe con leche is excellent and over-medium eggs are fried perfectly. Cuban toast is tasteless and soggy, the ham is average, and tater tots are greasy. Breakfast at rock-bottom prices is served until noon.
