We've been 4 times, always consistent, quick, and delicious. We will make a special trip when craving Cuban food. The roast pork is out of this world!

The food is pretty good at Padrino's Restaurant and the prices are good when going out with the entire family. Restaurant is Large so it is at times a little loud. A typical Cuban menu. The black beans a very good... better than La Granja. I just wish they would sell oxtail stew at least on the weekends as a... More

Always enjoyable. Full Cuban menu along with a lunch buffet and once a month pig roast. Never had a bad meal. Staff is good. Prices are good.

The food is always reliably good. We were there on a Friday night and there was live music. My only complaint is that the restaurant is quite noisy and with the loud live music it was hard to carry on dinner conversation.

I Had Churrasco steak, didn't even need Chimichurri Sauce it was so flavorful. My wife got the fried pork chunks [Masitas De Puerco Fritas], very good too. Fried plantains were cooked perfectly and the black beans and rice were solid.

Big place. Lot's of people. Nice atmosphere if not a little noisy. I was part of a large birthday party. The service to our group was barely adequate. We should have had two servers, but alas we had one. She tried hard but failed to deliver good service to our group of 16. I had a salad with grilled shrimp.... More

Padrinos catered our wedding and we couldn't be happier with their outstanding service. From the initial stages of planning with Laura, she was able to answer all my questions, extremely helpful, and as organized as they come. The staff at the event was exceptional and friendly and we couldn't be happier with our choice. The food was amazing as always-but... More
