This restaurant is under new ownership and the new owners seem to be doing everything right. We ordered Masas de Puerco (Pork Chunks) for the entire sales staff at work, and everyone agreed they were the best we've ever had. I don't know how they were prepared, but my guess is that instead of deep-frying them as Cuban restaurants tend... More

Food's quality is better than expected. It's very cheap, waitress are polite and you should try here: Masa de puerco with moro y maduro...very soft meat (pork) with beans and rice mixed and sweet bananas. Vaca frita is good too. We also tried paella, was huge and cheap but tasty.

Although there is some English on the menu, at least 5 employees I spoke with in the Suburban restaurant spike little too no English that made the experience frustrating when I had questions about the menu. Upon offering a breakfast platter, I was brought out a large portion of hot Cuban bread however there was a large amount of visibly... More

El Rinconcito, the "little corner" is a plain, lively Cuban restaurant with other locations in Miami and Doral. Been here twice for breakfast which was a fantastic value...just incredibly cheap. Café con leche was even included in the price, which was around $5. Weekends bring lots of extended families. The menus are in both Spanish and English and the staff... More

Delicious food for a great price! Everyone's plate was over flowing! Sice never having Cuban food the waitresses helped pick out great options on the menu! Great value! For five of us it was 65$ and had plenty of leftovers and dessert! The atmosphere is bland and the waitresses could be better but I would definately recommend!

I went for breakfast on Sunday morning with my family. We waited 45 minutes for our breakfast. When asking for the status of our meals (since we had seen 4 tables who came after us served already), the waitress called the manager. She said 2 of the 6 breakfasts were almost ready! We asked why the delay and why other... More

I've been eating here for years! Time and time again, El Rinconcitosatisfies my craving for home style Latin food. Their breakfast is amazing as is their price. They serve dishes from the Caribbean as well a Central American dishes. Their Vaca frita is a must have if you are a beef lover. The atmosphere is very casual and dining in... More

I have eaten here 4 or 5 times. It is located in a strip without any distinctive decor or appeal. They have inexpensive prices and serve so much you can, if you wish, take home. Do not order too many plates, two can share one. Prices are inexpensive. Typical Cuban restaurants are known for fast service but here they understaffed... More

Had lunch here. Everytime I drove by this place I saw it full. Always a good sign that is has to be good. Typical small restaurant service. Staff was kind. They took my order swiftly, and my server had no issues with language communication. Food was very good. They serve you big servings. Prices are fair. On my list small... More

This place is always full.....the sign of a great place to eat. Try the Pork Chops and the Tamal en Cazuela. Food like your grandmother would make. Get ready for the oversized portions. Beer always served iced cold. Very reasonable prices.
