Great stop!

Our family stopped at Tuto's Place on our way from the Everglades to The Keys. We just happened to spot it on our drive and decided to give it a try. The owner treated us like we were long, lost friends. Very friendly guy! The food was outstanding, and the prices were even better. A welcome relief... read more

Stopped in on the way from Miami to Key West. This is a true "hole in the wall" restaurant. The owner is very friendly and helpful in choosing a meal. We had fried pork chunks and chicken steak with rice and beans. The pork and chicken were moist and perfectly seasoned and the red beans and black beans were creamy... More

Stopped by on my way to the Shark Valley section of the Everglades National Park. I'm glad I did. I think I was the only non-Cuban in the place, but it couldn't have been more welcoming. The young man who sat next to me gave me a pointer or two on the hot sauce, and the proprietor and staff were... More

Felt just like home when I had lunch there with my wife. I had a bistec empanizado with rice and some amazing beans. Loved the red beans. Will go back for lunch.

This is a small cafeteria/restaurant with very odd decorations. The food was ok. We had the steak sandwich; better then most chain Cuban restaurants but, nothing special. The decorations were very odd. Game boar heads were hung on the wall and a bunch of southern memorabilia hung on the walls. What i found offensive were the confederate flags and decor.... More

I had ropa vieja and it reminded me of my mom's cooking. Atmosphere is GREAT, you feel like you are somewhere in the everglades. You want to try good... More
