Made a return visit to this restaurant while we were in Wilton Manors. Ordered the Cuban sandwiches with fries. It is a large sandwich which can be shared by another. The ambiance in the restaurant wasn't particularly great as this time there was a roof leak right by our table. They put a large bucket to catch the leak, but... More

I ordered and was served the best Churrasco steak (Argentinian) I ever had. The chimichurri sauce was outstanding.

As a Cuban-American from Miami, I did not expect to find good Cuban food in Broward. Well, was I ever wrong. The food here is better than any place I can think of in Miami. My brother from Miami agrees. The people are friendly, and the prices are reasonable. The lechon asado is amazing. You cannot go wrong with this... More

Once a year when we are town, we plan at least one lunch here. Nothing fancy, just good Cuban food at reasonable prices. Being a creature of habit, I always order the Lechon asado. The shredded pork is very tender and the black beans are delicious. Definitely worth a try.

Thank you Myra for being such a wonderful... More

Recommended by a friend for good, cheap Cuban food. It was ok, nothing to rave about. My Vaca Frita was ok. My friend had the Ropa Vieja and it was much better (not like my mom's but very good.

Last Sunday I took my friend and she ordered: Tacos al Carbon, the dish was a disaster, big chunks of tomatoes, a huge scoop of sour cream does not save the dish, which comes with rice???, not at all, there was everything but tacos, really bad, manager did not notice that when she was in front of the dish.

I will never return to this place, even if they paid me back for the awful experience I had, the owner is a complete a-hole. I went for lunch and had a flyer for lunch specials, which included a buy one get one deal on Cuban meals. I asked the server, he explained to me that it would be $10... More

We were taken here by our friends who live just North of Fort Lauderdale and we had a great time. It was our first experience of Cuban food and it was brilliant. We had the salsa starter followed by the pork with Margaritas to drink. Service was excellent, food of great quality and price reasonable. the decorated coffee to complete... More
