Authentic food

While appearing slightly rough around the edges, this little gem has a delicious Cuban sandwiche and tasty yuca. Most of the staff seemed really pleasant. The place is extremely busy which may have made one waitress a little too brisk but she wasn't unpleasant. I would certainly recommend this... read more

I have eaten here many times and everything is so delicious. Their papa rellanos (stuffed potatoes) are probably the best I have tasted. I always get their honey Cuban but their regular Cuban is also delicious. And their prices are very cheap. Low prices for high quality food. And most definitely a family atmosphere.

Found this place via Diners Dives weblink on Food Network. Always interesting to go to there locations and this one was a good one. Have to get the Cuban sandwich - it is their thing. Service was good and lots of interesting people coming and going. We had fun.

The little sandwich shop is a gem! I have been there twice. Once I got the Cuban, and the last time I got a ropa vieja sandwich with a papa rellena (beef stuffed fried potato) on the side. Of all the Cuban sandwiches I've gotten this place is at least as good as any other, and the papa rellena was... More

Our office had takeout from West Tampa Sandwich Shop. Every selection was an absolute winner! The Cuban is terrific, the Palomilla is incredible, but the Chorizo Sandwich is so good, I could eat one every day! And it is really affordable. $6.50 for a large sandwich...are you kidding me!?!?! You gotta try it.

Excellent food. Despite it being very busy, the service is quick and friendly. Try the homemade empanadas.

Although my girlfriend is Cuban it was friends of ours who are Puerto Rican that prompted me to want to visit this Tampa landmark. Situated in the neighborhood of West Tampa, otherwise known as Little Havana, West Tampa Sandwich shop is such a well known institution in the Tampa Cuban community that politicians from both major parties have used it...
