Worth stopping

Friendly staff, been there several times and the food is always good. I always ask for a recommendation on a dish and they haven't failed me yet. I think they're Cuban food has better flavor than the Mexican dishes but that's only my opinion, because both are really good.

So far this place has the WORST mexican food I've ever try. Never going back again. Food tasted reheated, friendly staff but horrible food. They spend too much money remodeling that they can't afford a good chef. I don't recommend anybody this restaurant I rather go to taco bell

We went there for lunch on a February afternoon, and although the service is always pleasant and fast the food seems to be sliding down. Everything we ordered was basically flavorless or very bland.

Food is wonderful, service fast and friendly. Took two people with me who had not tried mole sauce and they are forever ruined by how good it is here. Love their 'ritas too. they taste very fresh and not full of bar mix.

We stopped, on a whim, headed back to NSB. Cuban food was excellent - had the pork, and the fried plantains were some of the best we've ever enjoyed! Fresh salsa with chips was excellent!

They have great food when the owner is in. You get large amounts of food for the money, but if the owner is no working, the taste is not the same. Last night we went over for dinner, it took a long time for the waiter to come take our order, when the food arrived some dinner were cold and... More
