I was turned on to this place by a good friend several years ago. I now find myself dropping in for lunch at least once per month. What's good? It's all good. Period. End of sentence. The best part is the quantity and quality of the food for the price. Example: My wife and I ate there again today. I... More

Have had Cuban sandwiches up north but this was our first experience in the cafe style. Loved the gals that worked there, kissing and hugging on their regulars...so cute. Fun to try new food

I was in Tampa for a short visit and asked a cashier at a store for a local, non chain, Cuban restaurant. She recommended West Tampa Sandwich shop, which was a few miles away. We went there and had the Obama Cuban and the most delicious bread pudding I've ever had (and I have had a lot of bread pudding).... More

Very good honey Cuban sandwich. Got a large & my companion & I had enough for lunch. Not hard to find, but busy at noon. Would definitely return.

I don't believe this place is as fantastic as some of the reviews make it out to be. That said, it was very good. I kind of want to say its 3.5, but I'll either round up to 4 or just give it a straight up 4. Naturally, I went with the triple meat sandwich, tripleta, whatever. Steak, pork and... More

This was the best find I've ever found in Tampa. I had the Obama cuban, with the honey on top, but I liked my boyfriend's original one better. The large is HUGE - just get a small with one of their great empanadas. $15 for both of us and we left stuffed.

I had heard about the Honey Cuban sandwich from my friends at work. Just the thought of having a Cuban sandwich coated in honey was very unappealing, but I had to try it. In my mind, there could never be a better Cuban sandwich than what I had in my home town of Miami. Well, I was wrong. This method... More

This local establishment in Tampa is a gem. Latin flavor abound with an eclectic mix of Tampa residents enjoying a cup of cafe con leche and some of the finest cuban sandwiches in West Tampa. A must for someone looking for local flavor and Tampa's signature sandwich.

While the outside may not thrill and chill you, let me assure you the food will. West Tampa has the most authentic and best tasting Cuban food that I have found in my 13 years of living here. Not only is it fresh and delicious, the portion sizes are huge, and the price is LOW. My boyfriend and I eat... More
